“Great Value,”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Making any journey on the M1 avoid the services its worth making the short detour off the motorway for a meal break at this pub/hotel,we have done this several times.Good food and great value.
We tried a mid week break at the hotel. The room we were given was large and clean,the staff were very friendly and we were given a warm welcome.They have a good choice of wines and beers.There is a large car park should you need it.
I think some parts of the hotel could do with a lick of paint,but we would stay again.

We took our family for a Christmas Eve meal as the management had change since our last visit on Mothers Day which was a disaster so we thought we would give it a go! wish we hadn't the meals were shocking quality and we even had to ask for cutlery. I can honestly say we will not be going back here for a meal ever again!

12 ladies hoping for an enjoyable meal the only positive was the company. Portions embarrassingly poor, food bland, served by staff that you had to feel bad for but whom had no pride in their work. On asking the staff to mention to chief that food not as described, basically told "tough". I will never eat here again as this is my second bad experience here.

2 night stay friday/saturday. Writing this review on the saturday at 00.27hrs and the music is still blasting out, with no sign of stopping! We are tired and fed up!. This was booked as an offer out the paper, we thought we were getting a nice cheap deal....but as the saying goes ' you get what you pay for!' No sound proofing what so ever, in fact the music is getting louder!! We have decided to pack our bags and go home!!

firstly the rooms were old and tired. They smelled old and like cigarettes!! def need updating..

The bed was huge in the room which was great but couldn't sleep as it sounded like a disco going on underneath me! Items in the room were old (especially the hairdryer!)

breakfast was ok... but please teach your staff how to make a coffee as i was given dirty dish water!

i would of complained in the morning however after waiting 15 minutes for someone to appear at reception i decided to give up and just left the room key

NOT WORTH THE MONEY AT ALL.. i feel bad that my work paid so much for it..

Room Tip: downstairs (or another hotel!)

This pub/restaurant has been well overdue for a re-fit for years. Tatty grubby and a bit food smelly throughout. Nice friendly staff both on reception and room cleaning. Rooms clean but tired. No direction whatsoever in breakfast area, during, service, no one in charge and no one interested. Sunday morning breakfast was a shambles, hard eggs, mould on crusts of toast and told no more bread so crusts served. We had to ask for everything, fruit juice, fruit, bread. Etc.. Greene King need to sort this one it is a very busy establishment which deserves to be better. We had 10 other people staying so felt a bit responsible.

Room Tip: If its a weekend ask not to be near function room.
