This was a last minute booking the day before arrival and cost 29.95 GBP. Absolutely fantastic price. Arrived at staff handover time (late at night) so waited a couple of minutes for assistance.

Room was very clean. Easy to park and register car on the touch screen system. Looked like brand new towels and very happy to use this hotel again. I had stayed here a number of years ago and wasn't impressed, they certainly have improved.

Room Tip: Ask to stay away from motorway side if possible.

Excellent 2 night family room booked for £50 with offer code '24fifty' - most definitely the best price bargain around with FREE car parking on site and Waitrose store as well as Starbucks next door.
Good quiet nights sleep and unbeatable for the price!

The staff were very friendly and the room was surprisingly quiet considering it is situated at a service station. The room was very clean and definitely a non smoking room. We didn't have a problem with smokey corridors either like some reviewers. We travelled as a family and had a good sized room.

Clean and tidy room, friendly staff, free parking, good value for money. Our room was next to HGV park and although they didn't disturb us I think that they would have woken light sleepers. You wouldn't want to spend a fortnight here but one or two nights is fine.

Room Tip: Away from lorry park if a light sleeper

Stayed here with business as were working near the motorway and after reading reviews were worried. However, when we arrived the receptionist was very helpful and rooms not bad at all. Tgey were slightly dated, bit still clean and with all basic facilities required. I heard no noise from the wagons and had a undisturbed sleep. No problems at all. Wi fi free was also a great touch

I wasn't expecting much here, but needed somewhere to stay in a hurry, so I gave it a go.
I was pleasantly surprised. Free parking, polite staff, and a decent sized room with tea making facilities, a TV, a comfy chair and a table and a view of the petrol station. Actually I didn't mind the view; at least it was something to watch while I put my feet up after a long drive.
No restaurant, of course, but as it's a service station, there were plenty of places to eat.
Continental breakfast was included, and overall I would recommend Days Inn, and I would certainly stay again.
