“Better than expected.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We stayed overnight, booked here because of the convenient location.
The room was a reasonable size and was clean, the bathroom grout had been re-whitened and needed tidying up but otherwise it was all ok.
It was a very humid night and the air-con worked ok.
Despite being next yo a busy road and a service station, it was very quiet.
The bed was quite squishy.
Nothing smelt unpleasantly.
The wifi was free.
It was ok!

Stayed at days inn for six days.Hotel was clean and tidyThe hotel is in need of a refurbishment. .House keeping was poor on several occasions ie not replenishing toilet items and on one occasion not cleaning the room at all.One other thing adverts for hotel misleading it said you got breakfast included but didnt state that it was a continental breakfast.On reporting about the lack of room service they said they would send e mail to the manager and then send e mail to me as of this date still waiting for a reply.I also sent a e mail to their web site address with no response.Therefore customer service very poor

Stayed here for a hen do recently. Literally amazed at how disgusting this place is. Got moved once, the key card didn't work so we had no lights and the power kept tripping. the room we were moved to had leaking aircon. They couldn't move us further due to being fully booked by other poor visitors. Sat on the sofa bed and the metal actually snapped (this was supposed to be a family room, not suitable for children at all!). had to place the mattress on the floor, to do this we moved the sofa which was hiding about 10 years worth of dust and dirt. swiftly moved this back. The lobby smelt strongly of urine. Staff were pleasant and just seemed completely fed up with the state of the hotel.

Where do I start.... The whole hotel is in need of an update, deep clean & lots of repairs! The corridors smelled like urine and the toilets downstairs were disgusting! We were given our room cards (one of which didn't work so had to take a trip back down to reception to get it re swiped) we then entered the room and it was ridiculously hot and stuffy inside. The sofa bed was sunken in the middle and upon turning the air con on the electrics in the whole hotel tripped leaving us in shock. We took another trip down to reception to tell the staff what had happened and they told us to try the card again. We did that but it yet again the electrics tripped! We were then told to change rooms so we were issued with new cards and made our way to our second room. Within the space of about 10 minutes we'd already noticed that the sofa bed was broken and metal was sticking out... so we had to fold it away and put the mattress on the floor instead. Then the air con started leaking all over the floor and the sink leaked so never held any water for longer than 5 seconds. We complained to the receptionist who advised that he couldn't move us again as they were fully booked so he issued me with a full refund. I honestly cannot stress how awful this hotel is and I genuinely felt sorry for the poor staff members who had to deal with all the problems we had.

First time I've stayed at a Days Inn, and it will be my last absolutely terrible hottest day of the year find no air conditioning in my room as its broke, went to reception to be greeted by a helpful receptionist got put into an "executive" room no real difference as the air con broke here too, except the bed is two singles bolted together feels terrible, other reviewers are right hotel stinks of damp, please do yourselves a favour and stay in a travel lodge, premier inn etc will save you an uncomfortable nights sleep

Location is convenient if you are driving. It's at a services stop which means there convenience store, F&B outlets etc. More importantly room was spacious and clean; with full amenities at close to B&B prices!

This place is disgusting, smells of poo and the beds are always saggy. I've slept in damp woods that have been comfier then this pile of s$+#. Do not stay at any of their chain.

Staff do not care and the hallway smells damp and had a weird odour that seps into your room.
