“Basic, clean, tired”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

This was a last minute business booking - fairly close to where I was working, so handy. Generally, very much like a Travelodge, but in need of some tlc. It's always a sign of the quality when you have to pay upfront, so that you can't do a runner - although, these days when you pay by card, they could take the money from your card when they feel like it. The room was basic and minimal, to the point where there were no pictures on the wall. The bed was comfortable enough, although it did have a noisy plastic bed protector in case I wet myself during the night lol. Ok for the odd night, but would be too clinical and lacking in home comforts for a longer stay.

Arrived at midnight,the lady on reception could not have been more friendly or helpful.The rooms are large,basic but clean,what you would expect as a former Travelodge.Had a good nights sleep especially noticed the good quality of the sheets and quilt covers.A real bonus was the complimetary continental breakfast buffet which was quite extensive.Would definitely stay here again.

I secured a room through a well-known website, the quoted rate was a good price and the same rate was available from the Hotels own booking site.
I then read of issues with guests having arrived unexpected by the Hotel after booking online so emailed them to confirm my stay.
The Hotel did contact me, but only to inform me that they would not accept the room-rate I had secured online.
After a long argument (not initiated by me),I ended up paying more than double the advertised rate or my booking would have been cancelled at short notice.

The Hotel was previously a Travelodge and is still similar in style, with large, basic, but clean rooms. To the rear, rooms overlook green fields and we did not experience any road noise.
Good car parking and easy access to the main roads. Staff on-site where also friendly and helpful.
The Hotel is about 3 miles from the Town centre, with many supermarkets, shop, etc. It would seem that a restaurant is being refurbished next door to the Hotel, but not yet open.

Room Tip: If booking online, contact Hotel before arrival to avoid paying extra or to find that they don't...
