Although very near the airport there is triple glazing but the requested quiet room was 180 paces from the Reception to make sure there was no noise. The room was spotlessly clean, the bed very comfortable, the bathroom had a bath and a shower with complementary toiletries. The hotel falls down actually to a 'good' which is better than 'average' but not quite 'very good' because the price (£70 instead of a supposed normal rate of £139) did not include breakfast. That was an extra £10 but only average in the standard of ingredients - usual mass-catering uninspiring food. An evening meal with only a main course was £13.50 for a 'potless stew' which was presented nicely on the plate but not a very generous size. The staff were pleasant and helpful. Perfect position for the airport and close to Donnington race circuit.
