We stayed at this hotel for two nights arriving 29 August, due to very heavy traffic it was almost midnight when we arrived. We were greeted with a very warm and friendly welcome from receptionist called Alex. He made us so welcome and couldn't do enough. We just wanted to relax with a drink, and Alex was there to serve...

I stayed here for one night during the week. The hotel rooms are nice - modern and bright. It was very clean and comfortable and I got a good nights sleep. I didn't think too much to the customer service of the staff on reception, especially when checking out (a grumpy man was serving and it took far too long).... More

arrived at 2pm to have a nice relaxing Sunday only to be told there was no food left. Advertised as open 12:30. - 15:00. Appalling really won't be going back. This place has just recently just changed to Holiday inn so you thought they would make more of an effort to get customers in.

We visit the area year in mid July for a sporting competition and usually stay at the Premier Inn nearby. A group of us decided to stay here for a change this year. In general it's a nice hotel with spacious rooms and decent facilities but it was an extremely hot weekend and the air conditioning apparently wasn't working when... More

I booked this hotel back in February when it was called Aston Hall and was part of the Aston group of hotels. In the meantime it has obviously been bought by the owners of Holiday Inn (IHG). Ok so there was no problem with the booking but no - one had bothered to inform or ask me if I knew... More

Stayed here for 1 night ahead of a cycle race. Good location next to motorway. 24 hr McDonalds and a petrol station. Hotel has a bar and restaurant. Rooms were hot and stuffy. I was sure the website said "air conditioning". Front desk said the rooms only had air refreshers! Not the best sleep- too hot.

Thank you for your review. I would like to apologise for the incorrect information that you received from the desk. We do have air conditioning and it sounds like your unit was faulty which does happen from time to time. The least that we should have done for you would have been to give you a fan to help that...

Surprisingly modern and trendy inside after refit, food ok, rooms ok far enough away from A1 to off an element of quietness yet only two minutes from the main junction - staff try hard, would recommend, better than standard travel Inn/lodge. Good meeting spot.

Stayed there for one night visiting friends. It's so close to the A1 motorway and having a MacDonalds next door was a real bonus. We booked an Executive room on the ground floor. The wing had just been recently refurbished and looks amazing in comparison with the other Holiday Inns I've been to. The staff were nice and very helpful,... More
