Rooms small and tired. Dunno what it is about this area, the H.Inn Garden Court up the road is appalling. Trying Marriott next I...

Great stay here for the week with business, friendly front staff on reception. Rooms clean and comfortable with a decent TV and shower/bathroom. Shame the cleaner doesn't re-stock the shower gel when you run out, but I had some of my own anyway. Free on-site gym access with friendly staff here too. Will stop here again, many thanks

The first positive is that the reception staff are excellent. Negatives, the rooms and hotel are very old and need modernising. The food in the restaurant is also terrible and I recommend eating off site.

It's a cheap, no frills decent nights stay if you're travelling on The M1, or heading to any of the destinations nearby. Fittings are decent, if not a bit aged. The bed was comfortable and the food was decent, though a bit on the pricey side. Hardly any noise except for the occasional rumble from the airport, but nothing major....

My wife used to be a hotel receptionist so I hate having to complain, especially directly on arrival. However I'd booked after talking to the hotel adjoining rooms so the kids can have one and Mrs C and I the other. On arrival we get told actually you're close but not adjoining, and when we get to the rooms they...
