“Great mid-range hotel which offers good value for money.”
Reviewed November 18, 2011

Stayed here for 1 night as we were visiting our niece for her birthday. It is not centrally located but that was not an issue as we had traveled by car so were more interested in a hotel offering free parking.

Stayed on the ground floor and our room was clean and modern. Bed was comfortable and the room was quiet.

Considering we had paid £50 for the night, I was expecting just a continental breakfast but was pleasantly surprised to discover the hotel offered a hot breakfast. Eggs, bacon, sausages, baked beans and mini hash brown potato thingys. There was also fruit, yoghurt, cereals and bread items too.

Will definitely stay here again at this price.

This is the usual H by H format but what makes it great are the people. I spent about 218 hours there having meetings and stayed overnight. Everything was arranged very efficiently, when I turned up it was clear that I was expected and my needs were understood, and small changes were accommodated with no fuss. Makes business trips so much easier and is surprisingly rare. Breakfast was the usual buffet but was impressed to find nice quality yoghurts and everything well stocked. Plenty of space and room to choose whether or not to be close to the Sky News broadcast on a big TV. Definitely recommended.

Me and my boyfriend have stayed here a couple of times and really cant fault it. The rooms are spotless , the bed extremely comfy and lots of choice for breakfast. For less than £50 altogether there really is nothing to complain about.

Easy to reach from Aston Train Station, about 10 mins walk.
Great and helpful staff welcoming you with a smile. Nothing is a bother to them. Quiet and decent room for an overnight stay. Actually, a family room on a single occupancy (2 small beds with a Double Bed) for only 1 night.
When I came down for breakfast, next morning, it was very busy with nowhere to sit except the bar. The buffet was well catered with food, coffee and juices. Staff continually replenishing when the buffet was becoming quite low on food ensuring that nothing was missing for the guests.
A rarety was the complimentary newspaper which few hotels offer.

There are not many Hamptons in the UK. They are in the same category as Holiday Inn Express.
The rooms are a good size and have some nice touches like a padded lap tray for eating takeaways or doing the crossword, and dispensers of soap, moisturiser, shampoo, conditioner and shower gel.
Breakfast is good for this type of hotel and is included in the room price.
Beware of the directions on the website. They are not very easy to follow and at the last roundabout you need the 4th exit not the third exit as stated (you are going back the way you came, not turning right). I have stayed at this hotel twice and reported this a few months ago, but it is still wrong. Also I found it a bit noisy with people talking outside at 1.30am - even with the window closed, the noise seemed to carry straight into the room. Staff pushing a complimentary newspaper under the door at about 6am also woke me up!

Well worth the money including free breakfast. Would highly recommend this chain. They're similar to Premier Inns but nicer and you don't have to pay extra for breakfast.
