I stayed here 21 November for one night. Excellent room and amenities. Helpful staff. Breakfast a bit overpriced but there is plenty to eat and choose from, together with complimentary newspaper. Will definitely use this hotel again.

We stayed here whilst visiting the Warner tour for the Harry Potter films. The studios are about 15 minutes drive away. There were quite a few families here. The hotel is comfortable and clean with friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast was a buffet and, on the first day we ate well and all was fine. On the second morning... More

Great hotel for access to the city or for around the M1. Plenty of car parking on site and a large reception and bar area for seating and working. A few TV screens as well for catching the sports. Room a good size and standard fit out for a Holiday inn.

Often stay at this property & have always found the accommodations go be clean, tidy & well presented. As normally with colleagues we tend to dine away from the hotel so cannot comment on the restaurant. Leisure Facility is very good and I often make use of the pool. Avoid arriving/leaving around rush hour as it's a nightmare - although... More

Very friendly staff on arrival, and a fantastic position, very close to the M1. After a days driving, a warm welcome, and a very comfortable roomy bedroom, and a great powerful shower. After a good nights sleep on their soft pillows, I enjoyed a breakfast of well cooked bacon, hash browns, tomatoes and a fried egg cooked for me, while... More
