The staff was really nice. The food was good but the breackfast could be a little bit improved for the ones that are not used with the English style(beans and sausages in the morning). The room was cleaned every day. During the night can be a little nozy because of the near by highway.

Spent an overnight on trip down south. Hotel well located, well equipped and comfortable till it came to bed time. Bed was small, soft and probably had the worst sleep in decades. Everything else was fine.

Sometimes you just need a convenient no-frills place to eat and get your head down. This hotel is a good example. Parking: free. Staff: welcoming. Room: good size, quiet. Food: not bad at all. Overall value: pretty good. Verdict: does what it says on the tin.

Came to the Ramada as a base to visit the surrounding area and were very pleased with our choice. We were greeted by a very pleasant young man on reception and checked in quickly and efficiently. When we got to our room it was plenty big enough clean and welcoming . Despite being next to the train track we weren't... More

Positive: This is a corporate boutique style hotel close to the M1. The railway was also close by but we heard no noise from either. Our room was on the small side, but cleverly designed to make use of the limited space. It was clean and as I had telephoned before arrival to ask for a camp bed, I was... More

Polite and helpful staff on duty when we arrived for a late check in at 11.30pm after a long day at a local folk festival. My husband and I had been camping but following a bad weather forecast packed up our tent and made a reservation for our last night in this hotel. The room was as expected, basic, warm,... More

I am sorry you felt the need to put your thoughts on tripadvisor. The only large party we had checking in on Saturday was National coach holiday's all the guest on the coach tour were English visitors so I am at a loss as to who you saw checking in. If you were treated so badly by some guests I... More
