Although not stopping at the Hotel, we popped for a break during our business travel. We were greeted by the reception staff "Mollie and Michelle" who couldn't have made us more welcome. We had a couple of hot drinks, made by Damien who even indulged my love of retro games by making "Pacman" designs on our hot chocolates! (See pic).... More

Hotel is clean and quiet, rooms are very big, very good standard . Staff in reception ,bar and restaurant first class very polite and helpful . Excellent food in the restaurant. Wifi isn't working properly and when you connect Internet is slow. It wasn't only on my device as my colleague had the same problem.

I stayed for 2 nights as part of a work trip. I found the hotel very easy to get to, and parking was not an issue - lots of spaces! Price was over £180.00 for two nights (without breakfast) but there was an event on locally so I wonder if the hotel increased its rates, as looking at another weekend... More

We stayed at this hotel last year (2014, to attend Download) and it was mostly a positive experience so I decided to book again this year (2015). Staff are lovely, very welcoming and happy to assist with any enquiries. The rooms are clean and quite spacious, more than adequate for our needs. Tea and coffee are available and there was... More

The hotel it's self is clean, with nice rooms & our bed was huge, so altogether it was value for money. Please AVOID the local taxi firms if you don't want to get ripped off. A 3 minute taxi ride into town will cost you £10, and a taxi to EMA ( approx 5 miles ) cost us £25. There... More

Stayed for period of 6 consecutive weeks on business and pleasantly surprised. They market themselves as budget, which i think is an undersell. Better than a lot of true "budget" hotels I have stayed in. Spacious rooms, very clean with very helpful staff in all departments. Food also very good.

This hotel advertises itself as three star, which it is. However, it deserves 100% of those stars. Clean, comfortable, easy to reach and park. The staff were helpful and friendly. This is an ideal hotel for those travelling and in need of a good nights rest.

A great value hotel which I found via other trip advisers posts, and how very true, the staff, rooms and food all top quality, I could not rate this Hotel much higher, I shall return, when next on business in the area.
