“changed hands”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

This place changed hands in this year .and i had high hopes dashed when the new owners set ot to make ther fortune via us.
This place is well located for us drivers at j17 m4 , but they think we are cash cows they like to milk dry .
They do provide a voucher for £4.00 but most meals you can add about another £1.60 to pay for a meal without a sweet.
i am all for making a decent profit but there prices are nearly on par with the motorway services.
and food has gone back to if its not eat keep it on heat might not be fresh cooked.
They are still conducting changes but im sure none of these will save us money.

“Food really bad and too pricey on plus side showers excellent”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Staying the night thought would be a great place to hole up parking fee reasonable had shower must say very clean and toasty warm very nice staff in there went on to have a meal had beef stew!!!! Well it was like chewing old tyres not nice at all
After staying for few hours needed the rest room as I went to go in they was locking up 9 30 ???? Advertised open till ten got told to use outside toilet not customer friendly at all just seems pointless advertising one thing then doing another very dissatisfied

“Clean with good food and facilities”
Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

Overall this is a good stopover with excellent shower facilities (£1.50) ,this would be better though if it was included on the parking ticket enabling drivers to claim it back as this is not shown on the printed receipt, however only a stones throw from J17 M4 a convenient overnight stop,£16 to park.

“Freshen & Nice Hangover Café”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

Trucks stop with all facilities available for truck drivers, overall a one-stop shop for the needy, you can even shop, in fact it’s a complete hangover stop for the family. I went there once with my 2 little kids & wife, must say we cherished every moment we spent in that transport café, food was hygiene & hot but the thing turned my mood a bit off was self-service in the café I was expecting food will be served by the café staff but it didn’t happen In my case, still I would like to recommend them for their offering services, I would give them 9/10.
