I stayed at this motel recently and thought it provided good value for money, when compared to other budget hotels. It did remind me of university halls of residence, but was also quite charming in its own sort of way.

Being next to the motorway it is quite loud and is probably not a great place for a woman to stay.

While staying here I also ate at their restaurant, the food is like supersized school dinners - again much cheaper than other service stations.

There is also a bar in the motel, with reasonbly priced beer and live sport on the TV.

Motorists hve complained for your about being 'ripped off' at the Motorway Service Areas on the M6. Car owners and their families will find that they are more than welcome at the Penrith Truckstop in Cumbria.
This is within three minutes from Junction 40 of the M6. Take the Penrith exit, then turn left at the rounabout for the industrial estate. Drive a few hundred yards and the Truckstop is across the road from the BOCM mill. There is a separate entrance and no charges for car parking.
The owners are a large trucking company and they hve provided a friendly and comfortable environment with excellent customer service. There is a restaurant, bar, games room, Free PC with wifi. shop and cash machine.
There are 37 compact rooms ranging from basic singles at £22 to en suite twins at £36, plus shower at £2 a time.
The restaurant is sparkling clean with flowers, colourful lampshades, and heavy furniture. There is even a high baby chari available. Menus start off with a choice of four breakfasts from £4 - £5 a head, or a more expensive full Scottish breakfast. A luncn of the day menu for £3.99 is even better value, and there are soups, sandwiches scones and cakes.
Everything is cooked to order and while it is supposed to be sefl-service, the staff deliver the fresh cooked food from kitchen to table.
Eating here is a pleasure compared with Motorway Service Areas and far better value.
