Stayed for two nights, only £55. Room was basic but clean, everything worked. Only downside was the noise from the lorry park, we was in an end room next to the lorry park and at times the noise was unbearable, constant noise from fridge trailers. Could be improved if the window shut properly to block out the noise

I stayed one night on business. The first thing to be aware of is that Google Maps will tell you that it is situated in the Southbound service area. It isn't. It is on the other side of the motorway! The hotel looks like it hasn't been seriously updated in a few decades - but it has no need to.... More

Arrived 10pm. Room very cold, no milk, kettle broken. Porter gave us the one out off reception because he didn't know where they were kept. Although sheets were clean there old stain marks in two places. Maybe time to replace linen. Slept badly, could feel spring's in mattress. Signing from northbound carriageway very poor, entrance has no entry sign. Reception... More

I stayed here for one night due to an early meeting the next morning and everything was as expected. Good customer service at the desk, clean room, comfy bed and all amenities were working as expected.

Stayed at the Days Inn Watford Gap in July. Allocated room 1 - which was next to an engine of some sort - very noisy throughout the whole night. The member of staff on reception was very helpful - but to no avail as the only room he could reallocate was room 2, adjacent to room 1 which was just... More

Firstly, let me start by saying that the receptionist was very pleasant and friendly at check in. The room (16) is spacious and has all the facilities, as advertised. However, I first encountered problems with the shower: A very slippery bath almost causing me to fall. The controller was so stiff, that I struggled to turn it on. Beware of... More
