Pleasant room and sad to see the numerous stains on the dirty and dated carpet. Hotel generally shabby and poor decor. Prepare to be disappointed by the quality of food that I would not feed to my dog. Burgers that are like bricks, a wood fired pizza that has never been near a wood-fire more like a Domino's pizza on...

Visited this hotel as I was working nearby for a few days. Location for Peterborough city centre is fine about a 5 minute drive away. Unfortunately the hotels initial appearance is a bit tired and outdated, this pretty much sums up the rooms also. I would say the rooms are clean and tidy, just stained carpets and tired decor may...
