We returned here today after nearly three years of avoiding the place as one of the wife's friends said it was good again. No, no, no it's not good it's crap. Right from the start you just get that feeling don't you. I ordered two drinks, that seems a straight forward thing and nothing out of the ordinary in a... More

A friend and i wanted somewhere quiet enough to chat with nice comfortable seating and surroundings. We called in here for our mid morning coffee meetup. It was a great choice! It hadn't started to get busy with the lunchtime crowd. A good chat and coffee were on the menu! We'll be doing this again soon, i hope!

Staff helpful and friendly and you get excellent customer service from Rachel on reception. She is an asset to the company. The food is good. Plenty of parking and good access from m1. It is 4 miles from city centre and local amenities good.

Me and my dad always come here for sunday dinner. The carvery is great, and we always enjoy our visits. It does get really busy around lunch time, but its to be expected. So book a table if you are planning on visiting around lunch time!!

The hotel I have no complaints about - room clean and tidy but the food! We went for breakfast and apart from not being fit for a dog, no one came and checked! Tea was weak and cold! I would suggest you don't eat here!

Stayed one night at this hotel whilst on a business trip. All standard rooms were fully booked so ended up in the Bridal Suite (extra £20 per night) - very comfortable room with all the amenities you would expect, clean, well decorated and value for money. Ate in the ground floor restaurant with a colleague, both meals were well presented... More
