I stay in Peterborogh often for business, and usually stay at hotels near city center. Was booked for the first time here at the Marriott, and although the hotel itself is the best in Peterborough, the location is terrible.
First, the hotel itself. The rooms were American style in size and amenities. They looked brand-new. Large flat-screen TV, full bath, large and confortable beds. Probably the first hotel I've been in the UK that met typical American standards for size of a hotel room.
The breakfast was included, and was very typical (but good quality) English breakfast. The hotel also had a very nice pool.
There is no wi-fi (a shock given its 2012 and this looks like a rennovated hotel) and Internet was 15 GBP per day (typical Marriott).
The location though is a deal breaker for me. I won't stay here again...its in the middle of nowhere. It is about a 10 GBP taxi ride each way to city center, and about 15 GBP to the station. You have to wait 15-20 minutes for the taxi's to show up...and the ride (multiple round abouts) actually made me feel a bit sick a few times (which never happens to me). There are just too many hotels that are decent near or in city center (i.e. the Park Inn or The Bull) that I'd rather stay at.
Overall the best hotel in PBoro, but the worst location. In the UK its all about walking or public transport for me, so location here is a deal breaker.
