Friendly reception, efficient at arrival and at departure. Clean room, all possible facilities including WIFI. I chose the full English breakfast and was not disappointed. I would certainly recommend and stay again for either business or pleasure. My only comment would be that I could infrequently hear my neighbour flicking the plug socket switches, but not so much that it... More

We stayed at Downsview following a twelve hour drive through France. Our stay was fantastic, not that we needed much. The hospitality and accommodation were excellent and the breakfast was enough to set us up for the journey to Holyhead. We will definitely be back.

Rooms are really clean, comfy and well equipped, with modern en suite too. One of the best full English breakfasts I've ever had. New owners (Sue and Martin) are well supported by... More
