The staff at this hotel are the most amazing, kind human beings i have ever encountered, especially talek. After breaking down and being stranded with our 3 children talek and the ladies at the hotel saved us. They were kind, understanding and very accomodating, giving our 3 children chocolate and juice and helping us get some rest after an awful... More

Well where do I start with this hotel, which I'd like to re-brand 'Days Out' as in, couldn't wait to be OUT of this place! I booked two rooms for my family whilst attending a family gathering in Leicester. Firstly, upon check-in I was met with an additional £40 bill (£20 per room) for early check-in. I was advised over... More

Had a good stay in this hotel. It's only a little thing, but I loved that the tea provided in the room is Yorkshire Tea - it's my favourite! The hotel was easy to find being on the M1, and there are sufficient facilities - a Waitrose, W H Smith, KFC, various other fast food outlets. We got some pastries... More

We booked 2 rooms for one night. We asked for adjoining rooms as I was travelling with my son, and I don't think they could have been further apart - 2 floors and at opposite ends of the hotel. As the receptionist pointed out 'It was only a request!'. It went downhill from there as my room had a drilling... More

This hotel is good value for the price I paid which was £39. The bed was extremely comfortable and had an amazing sleep. The shower was okay could have been more powerful however it was decent for the price paid. Staff were very friendly and helpful. My only downfall of this hotel was the temperature inside the rooms and the... More

I stayed in this hotel one night when travelling late at night back up from Heathrow to Leeds. I had hoped to make the trip up but it was 1am and I got very tired. I was travelling with my 2 children. This was exactly half way back and I pulled in hopeful I could get a room. I gratefully... More

Booked this for an overnight stay, I cannot imagine why anyone would ever stay more than one night. Basic but comfortable enough for an overnight stay with most mod cons. Unfortunately for this review that night was during the recent very hot period so the only way to survive the heat was to have the window open - no chance... More
