Recently had an overnight stay here and we had a lovely room, very clean and the breakfast was adequate. The staff, particularly Sarah on reception, couldn't have been more helpful. She went out of her way to make sure everything was ok and all with a friendly smile.

Tricky to find in the dark on a small business park out of town (sat nav helps), but this location means you can park easily and securely, and no street noise. Also easy to get away on A5/ A49 in the morning, which is probably the chief reason for selecting this venue. Interior doors good at blocking noise from lobby...

Stopped here for one night. Beautiful big room, lovely comfy beds and toiletries in shower and bathroom, which made a change. Nothing was a problem for the staff, made me feel comfortable as travelling by myself.

We have stayed many times under various differing chain owners. This time stayed 2 nights but probably the last. For whilst rooms were clean it is now looking a little tired and needs a revamp. Breakfasts are a bit limited. Previous chains at least offered Bacon. As others have said, same fare every day for breakfast. It could do with...

Another IHG hotel that is a credit to the chain, although surprisingly it was tucked away on an industrial park which was the only thing that let it down. Clean hotel, great staff, good food and quick internet to enable me to work, at a great price, everything I needed.

Stayed here for a night after attending a wedding...room we had was lovely couldn't fault and amazing shower. Breakfast was a little disappointing as didn't have much choice. No bacon, beans, tomato...just sausage, scrambled eggs. But I would stay again if just for a night. Staff were great and nothing top much for them.
