Stayed here with my son on route to a sporting event. Receptionist was polite and as helpful. Didn't get very much sleep at all though. Room was baking hot and couldn't turn the heater off. The room overlooked a very busy truck stop so was too noisy to open the window. The walls are paper thin so we spent a...

Accommodation great....,but reward system needs reviewing. Signed up to Wyndham and assured that 1pm departure was then free. ..but then charged £10 cash, by a different receptionist on day of departure, totally contradicting check in (male) receptionist reassurance!!

Stayed here for one night and have to say the staff were friendly and helpful and rooms comfy. Needs a lick of paint. But hey don't let that put you off excellent value. There is a pub within five minutes bout you have all the usual service station shops.

Have stayed here many times on business, this was my first stay for a weekend away. Tarik (apologies if I have spelt your name wrong, you'll have to complain to me on the next visit!) was brilliant, as always. Friendly and helpful. Room warm and clean as always. A good base for a Christmas shopping trip.

Don't take your wife there. It is a truck stop hotel, located in a service area along the M1 highway, between a parking lot and a petrol garage. Decor is old, carpets smell, and amenities cheap. Ambiance zero. You get what you pay for, and no more.

My husband, son and I stayed here as a stop off between travelling from Leeds to Aylesbury. Upon arrival the receptionist (a tall Asian male who's name slips my mind) was very friendly and welcoming! He attempted to find us a closer room as we were in room 131 which was the furthest away, when he saw I had a...
