Just off junction 28 of the M1 and about a mile from the Mcarthur Glen Outlets, this hotel is classed as a 4 star. However the rooms are in need of modernisation with beds only being standard double size. Also you would expect there to be a lift. Breakfast is good, however dinner was underwhelming, and the service could have...

As it was such a good deal on Travelzoo we decided to use it as a base for our house hunt. We were slightly worried as there had been some ghastly reviews but were pleasantly surprised. The accommodation was clean and comfortable with tea and coffee, and toiletries in the room. You could eat in the restaurant by booking a...

We booked a two night stay here via the Travelzoo website. The price was more than reasonable. We were impressed with the decor and helpful reception staff. The food was first class and even though dinner was included in the price the quality and variety on the menu were excellent. We encountered a problem with billing which was promptly rectified...

We stayed as a couple for a Saturday/Sunday night as our boiler had broken down at home and we work locally. We were given a double room on the ground floor, fairly small with very tired furnishings but warm. Room fairly clean but somewhat grubby in the bathroom, the bath panel in particular, and no ventilation for the steam. We...
