Our Sat Nav was on strike and we found this place horrendously difficult to find. We actually were near it once but turned around as we did not expect it to be situated at the far end of an industrial estate hugging the motorway. That said, the staff were very polite and helpful, the bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The bathroom was actually a very small wet room with the wash basin outside in the bedroom, but it was ok if you put the bathmat outside of the wet room door - it was actually quite a clever use of space and the shower worked well. The room was clean and the breakfast was good too. We only stayed one night, which was fine. The hotel was obviously set up for business travellers rather than tourists. The swimming pool looked nice but we didn't have time to try it out as we spent so long trying to find it. We stayed in nicer places on this trip for around the same cost.
