I have stayed here on 4 separate occasions,when I was checking out after the 1st time which I had booked on line for £39 I was told that I had to pay extra for the breakfast - even though I had booked with breakfast. After going through my e-mails and showing the receptionist I was given an apology and told... More

We arrived at the Great National after a hard day at Alton Towers, I had booked 3 single rooms at £39 each including breakfast. At that price I wasn't expecting much. On arrival we found a large and free car park which made it easy to park the car. On walking into reception we were greated by a very friendly... More

We went good Friday night with our 3 year old. Booked in advance and specifically asked for a second bed for the little one as she can't stay in same bed as us. Actually paid for a room for 3 people and got to our room and only one bed there. I rang reception and was told the bed would... More

It would have been excellent in every way but it left a distinctly nasty taste in my mouth by the morning - we were woken at 11.45pm by a terrible argument happening in the room next door - after 3 hours (we had knocked on the wall, which made no difference) during which the extremely slim tiny blonde went off...

Stayed one night. Very retro looking all round. Kinda liked it. Room was very basic. Clean which is the main thing. Would we stay they again ...... yes we would. Didn't eat at the restaurant there though Kavi Restaurant as the prices were more for the Indian food than we pay in london.

The cheapest hotel in the area and reasonably clean are the only positives. No wifi despite advertising it, shower was a trickle and woken throughout the night by creaking floorboards. Room key only worked after three trips reception each day. Wouldn't stay again but if you're on a budget would probably just about do.

Stayed at the great national at the weekend with my girlfriend and can't believe some the reviews I had no problem with heating and found that all staff were very polite and very helpful and I have to say that the Kavi was one of the best Indian resturants I have ever ate at
