Ate in restaurant and food disappointingly cool with soggy chips and breakfast was swimming in that much oil had to transfer food to another plate. really would avoid eating if you... More

A truly beautiful setting in a gorgeous red brick period building, with a large beer garden on the edge of the River Trent. I can see this place is a good gathering place in the summer months. However, on the inside it has a rather "mass produced" feel, leaving it rather soulless. The staff were friendly and the beer was... More

Stayed as a family of 4. We were a little apprehensive as room rate was very cheap but it was unbelievable value for money and we had no reason to be concerned. Everything was great. Room was excellent, staff were friendly, food very good, both in the evening and at breakfast, and beer was good too. Shower had plentiful hot... More

As a Marston's pub fairly standard. Standard being a great range of real ales. Food exactly what you would expect - a standard range with a few specials and it suits most appetites. Room great for £34.00!!!! Travelodge quality but great value. Booked on Late rooms and they obviously would rather fill the rooms with hungry and thirsty travelers than... More

Stayed here for Remembrance Day functions in nearby Melbourne. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Had evening meal ( two for the price of one) in the bar/restaurant. full waiter service and good food. Room was spacious, clean with good en-suite bathroom. Breakfast cooked to order and included in room price. Overall a very pleasant stay.

We stayed just for one night although it was our second visit. We found the staff very nice and helpful, the room was excellent and the food good for the price, and the location is beautiful what more could you want. We would definitely stay here again.
