OK for a Stopover.
Posted Nov 19, 2016 on Hotels
Hotel is a bit in need of a facelift. Public areas decor is dated , tries to be quirky but fails. Room was reasonable , but bathroom very tired. Shower screen leaked water on floor which created a flood , potentially dangerous. Mould evidence around ceiling above bath/shower. Ceiling papered with woodchip or similar textured wallpaper that must be difficult to clean. Room comfortable , but pillows on bed very poor quality , far too soft , no support and wrapped around your head when resting on them. Had to use cushions to get comfortable. Hotel great location for stopover on M6 , room was quiet and despite above , had a good nights sleep. Bar prices are high , £4.50 for a 330ml bottle of beer. Restaurant was quite good , breakfast under average for this type of hotel. Some delays at checkout as hotel is used as a meeting place for " speed awareness" bad boys & girls being collected for course. On the plus side , he staff are pleasant and polite.
