Stayed here last month over Valentines weekend as we were going to Cadbury world. At check in the lady was very friendly but not very informative, only told us the breakfast times, nothing about the wifi etc. Very good touch that they take the payment straight away and no pre-authorising.
The rooms were nice and a lot bigger than I thought. The TV has rubbish signal and was always blurry. You could'nt see what channel you was watching as there seemed to be no guide and our back of the tv remote had no back so the batteries kept popping out! Also, I found the old key card from the previous guest so the housekeeping obviously didn't check the room very well. Bathroom was nice.
Breakfast wasn't great, even for an Express. Food was very limitied and nobody was checking to see if items were running low. They only seemed to be re-stocked if you asked a member of staff. Also, the tables were all very dirty most of the time.
Location is good but only if you come by car which we did. Took about 20 minutes to get to Cadbury World and drove over to Star City one night which was very nice. Would stay again if we come by car.More
