We arrived at the motel but could not stay. The location is in a terrible area, the smell at the reception, the rooms are dark and in the need of a total refurbishment and there was not a person in the bar. We had to check out without staying... no refund, but never mind. The photos and information are very... More

I stayed here for one night. The check was quick and easy and the receptionist was very friendly and helpful. The room was large and well equipped. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom had a bath and a shower which worked fine. The restaurant was a nice area although the food was average at best. The breakfast was a let... More

On arrival the greeting at reception was possibly the worst welcome I've had for a long time. Why do people not understand that the guest checking in is the person that contributes to their wages?? The room was adequate but hardly inspiring. A padded headboard showed ample evidence of previous occupants and was dirty. The TV remote control had flat... More

After driving 5 hours I was not impressed that there was no room for myself and my husband. At 9pm it was difficult to find anywhere else. The Manager didn't apologise at the time and phoned someone to tell them off for opening the late rooms up again! At no point was customer service a priority. An offer of a... More

I was looking for somewhere to sleep and have a drink. The booking was easy, staff ultra friendly, breakfast was what I needed (cooked and very tasty). The rooms are old but comfy, everything worked and I slept very well. Would I stop there again... I am at the end of the month.

Arrived outside the accommodation to what looked like a closed for business restraunt..but tried to keep an open mind. Went inside to book in.. no one around, took their time to show face. Mid aged woman acted as if everything was hard work and a hassle.. all I wanted was the room key. Didn't use the restaurant for tea but... More

Firstly, I should say that I am a contractor, so I wasn't looking for perfection for a special romantic night or anything, just a meal, 2 or 3 beers, and a comfy bed, and this place hits the spot. The hosts, Paul and Russell, are friendly and welcoming and, most importantly of all, the rooms are fine. Not five star... More

Booked as close to Alton Towers... Really wish we had read the reviews first. Mattresses terrible, very thin and one thin cheap pillow. Mildew on bed cover Food in restaurant was very basic, low quality, ice cream was like mozzarella cheese, fish was a breaded frozen piece (mum had gone to Iceland), advertised a selection of wines and when asked...
