Stayed here for 3 nights for the annual Download Festival at a cost of £75 a night excluding breakfast. Originally planned to stay with my partner but we split up so got a friend to come, and the hotel was more than accommodating in changing the room from a double to a twin.
Although similar price to a Premier Inn, the room was much more nicely decorated with plenty of space, comfy beds and a nicely finished bathroom. Only picky things were bits of cobwebs on windows and a little mildew starting to show on the shower curtain but there were minor in the grand scheme of things. Free wi-fi was also welcome. Room service excellent and plenty of towels given.
Breakfast was very steep at around £13 for a cooked breakfast which is a complete rip off, go next door to the Harvester which is much cheaper, although the food is average. 24 hour bar service at the hotel is excellent and the reception area is a pleasant place to chill out. When we visited the entrance was being refurbished so it will look even better when complete. Plenty of parking at the hotel, easy to find, and only a 5 min drive to the airport or 10 to the festival.
Even if staying in the area in the future not for Download Festival I would definitely recommend it. Overall a very good hotel.
