It's ok for a stop over could do with a revamp or at least a good dusting but for the price it's ok. I probably would stay again. it's easy access to the motorways is a plus the bed wasn't too bad and the shower was good. It really just could do with a bit of decorating

Went here with my wife, daughter, son-in-law and two granddaughters for a meal, mainly due to the place having a play area. I regretfully have to say especially as I live locally that it was the worse set of meals I and my company have experienced in a long time and the service staff and manager just seem absolutely excepting...
