Working up North for a couple of days I did a search for accommodation and found the Highfield at half the price of anything in the area at £35 a night. What's the snag? There is none! I did arrive on one of the hottest days of the year and enjoyed a pint sat in the sun. No real ale but plenty for the lager drinker and the John Smiths I had was as good as I've had. The rooms are well decorated, nice hot bath, the shower is one that links to the bath taps so the secret is to get the temperature sorted running into the bath then change to the shower setting. I didn't eat there but what I saw looked palatable with bar snacks and the Thai restaurant on site. Plenty of parking with free wifi that didn't need a password. Was impressed that a fan was put in the room as well. Will definitely return if in the area.
