...well it does what is says on the tin and thats all we needed - a bed for the night at a good price. We were surprised how quiet it was given its vicinity to the motorway service area. We didn't eat or drink here at all as we were always out visiting family, but the staff were very helpful... More

I stayed one night as I was working nearby. The hotel is easy to find at M4 junction 30 just as you enter the service area. Across the road is a Toby Carvery so food is no issue. The hotel has a bar and does bar food if that's your taste. The hotel does a buffet breakfast of hot and... More

We stayed one night, admittedly I had reservations when booking but I needed an economical option. I have been pleasantly surprised. They were very busy with business meetings when we arrived and I had to double park in the car park as a result, but that wasn't an issue and easily resolved after the business day. Our twin room was... More

We were in Room 8 on the ground floor which was ideal for our little dog who wasn't charged for her stay. Everything was clean and fresh. Everything... More

We booked a week in advance paid only £29, for this I was suspicious about the quality of the room. However, I called up beforehand to warn them of a late arrival and asked about a travelcot, they were very obliging and also provided us a quiet room away from others. We arrived gone midnight as we wanted to travel... More
