My wife and I stayed over one night whilst visiting the area for an event.
Location: On the outskirts of Peterborough.
Set in a quiet location adjacent to a business park and the Showground, a mile or so off the A1M Great North Road, so would also suit if you are going up to/down from the North and needed a stop off, or a touring base.
In my opinion this is a car only destination, there is no public transport I could see which services the area. There were plenty of cabs, so should not be a problem getting in to the city.
We have also stayed at the Northampton Marriott not that far from here, which looks very similar, fairly nondescript slightly dated design, but it blends in and is well kept.
Free parking. Exit is security controlled by pin code.
Impression is of a very clean and well run hotel.
Check in was simple (booked online).
Room: Ground floor. Spotless and well presented.
The bathroom was fine, straightforward shower controls.
The double bed was very comfortable, and the aircon worked.
The kettle did not work but was changed very quickly without fuss.
We dined out at a pub/restaurant across the road, but we used the bar, which was small but OK.
Breakfast (which was included in the weekend rate) was excellent. The staff did a really good job of handling the rush, with several groups converging almost simultaneously.
Did not have time to use the pool or health facility.
All the staff were friendly and helpful.
Honestly, none, aside from my usual bugbear about "charged for" wi-fi. I do not understand this. We use mobile broadband as a result.
We really like the Marriott brand, definitely a step up from Travelodge or Premier Inns ( which to be fair have their own strengths and reasons for using). The pricing is usually higher than we want, but judicious use of their weekend deals can give really good value.
Since we found out by chance that our football team (who were playing in Peterborough) were staying there we will check out the Marriott chain for future away fixtures! BTW the hotel handled the team and its entourage discreetly and efficiently, very professional.
