Just off the M6 A great stop over for business travel No motorway noise can be heard. Beds are comfortable For dinner and evening entertainment head over the road to Star City where there is a wide choice of food and entertainment to pass the evening.

Stayed here for business. The room was spacious and comfortable with a large powerful shower, big screen TV and good wifi. The restaurant has a poor, expensive menu so i went across the road to Star City and found several eateries to choose from. The breakfast, although free (is anything free?), was very poor. The egg was like rubber and... More

There was sufficient free parking, check in was smooth and the room was a decent size with a nice big modern tv. The breakfast was decent as well. The only thing i could mention is the rooms decor perhaps needed... More

Location was hard to get into due to the road layout, but got there in the end. Room very clean and spacious. Choice of pillows hard or soft. Check in and out quick and easy. Good help yourself breakfast, but the bar menu in the evening limited to choice.
