Stayed here overnight. Initial impression wasn't too positive - it's on a retail type park - but we had a rapid check in, room was spacious and comfy. Good hairdryer, good shower, iron and ironing board. It was central for us and where we wanted to get to and at £50 per night in mid July, I thought it was... More

Rooms are nice. Bathroom was a bit dated tho. Bed was very comfortable. Didn't expect that for a 4* modern hotel. Staff are quite friendly. Stranded buffet breakfast. Only downside mainly is it's quite far out.

From the outside it doesn't look a great hotel but once inside you begin to experience the familiar Village style hospitality. Decor is modern and welcoming, staff extremely friendly and rooms very modern and comfortable. As with most Village hotels the leisure centre is extensive and well equipped. I do like the mix of pubs and coffee bars in these... More

Clean and friendly hotel. Reception staff very good made my arrival and booking in easy. Lots of choice with an Italian restaurant and a "pub style" restaurant to choose from, oh there is a Starbucks as well. Just across the road there is a cinema, a lazer quest and an Indian restaurant, so this hotel does have a lot to... More

I can't fault this hotel at all and will most certainly be returning in the future. The manager met us at the door and carried our luggage to the room, he couldn't have been more helpful. The most comfortable bed which resulted in an excellent night's sleep. Very friendly staff. The shower was the best hotel shower ever. Despite the... More

Good hotel, friendly staff, very quiet good food ~ we have stayed here about 7 times . Location is good we visited Bristol, Bath and Gloucester. Bowling, laser quest and food within walking distance. Pub across the road behind the sports centre and Asda. We went upper deck, worth paying that little extra for better coffee and TV channels.

I haven't actually been to Las Vegas, so perhaps I shouldn't use that city as a metaphor. Anyway, my family of four stayed here for two nights, and I found the whole experience strangely impersonal and unsettling. The fault lies in the modernity of the building, I feel, which can't really be changed. It's lacking in character and very plastic... More

Stayed on the night of 30th June. Check in was quick, efficient and polite. The room was clean and tidy, tea coffee etc. Food from the bar (fish and chips) was served quickly and was hot, tasty and very generous in portion size. *Quick tip, I was going to get room service but there is a £ 3.50 service charge....

We spent 4 nights in this hotel last week and my husband is back again on a business trip. On my first stay, the mattress protector was covered with hair and the mattress had all sorts of stains of gross fluid! On complaining, another room was offered. However, on a second time stay, we encountered the same issues. The mattress... More
