My husband and I overnighted here with our 4yr old. Check in took longer than expected and at one point there appeared to be a problem, and no immediate reassurance. The receptionist appeared new and went to fetch someone more senior. We stayed in room no8 which was sold as a 'family room' to sleep a max of 2 adults... More

Hotel was clean and fresh no frills. Staff were welcoming, friendly and informative. My main complaint was about the adjoining restaurant service. After ordering meals at the bar, we waited 40 minutes for the meals to arrive. The tables were not very clean and I had to ask two or three times for them to be done.At breakfast, I ordered... More

Just a single night stop over but for the price was great value. Nice size rooms, very comfy and clean. Staff very helpful. Lots of free parking. The pub / restaurant was very large with a varied menu. Just one down side which seems to be the norm in a lot of places now "Two for One" Meals. Great if... More

Decent room, a bit dated in places. Especially the bathroom, as the shower head looked and functioned like it has had better days and the complimentary shower gel/shampoo had not been refilled. The lack of plugs near the bed was a bit frustrating as I like to charge my phone and have it nearby as the alarm. Very tasty breakfast... More

My partner and I often visit the fairway for a drink and for a drinking pub I cannot fault. Unfortunately we decided to treat ourselves to some tea on one of our visits and the food was nothing short of disgraceful. I order an £8 chicken pasta dish and granted at that price I was expecting michelin star quality but... More

Scruffy. Remembered why don't come due to unruly kids like no other place especially as not adults bothering to watch, rather chill in other rooms. Charged £1.45 for pop bottle at bar then see it's £1 for pop bottle in the play areas

Stayed here for 1 night and was pleasantly surprised. Upon arrival was impressed by how nice the building was and how easy it was to find. The room was clean and spacious, and bathroom had plenty of hot water. Tea and coffee provided and overall cosy room. Asked for breakfast barns in the morning which wasn't a problem. Staff friendly... More

Stayed here a few times in the past, It doesn't change much, apart from no strong cabbage smell in the hallways this time, clean, basic, not much more I can say, if my two regular hotels (Premier Inn - Town Centre, or Ramada just off J37) aren't available I'll stay here.

It's a bit of an unusual reason, but we stayed here prior to travelling to Lanzarote. From East Midlands airport. I know, it's nowhere near it really, but it is only an hours thrash down the almost adjacent M1, and our eldest lives round the corner from the Fairway and as her and her other half and the kids were...
