This is the second Ramada Encore that we've stayed in and like Premier Inn etc., the rooms are the same so you know what to expect before you arrive. They are of a good size with an en suite shower room, TV and tea and coffee making facilities.
This stay was a Groupon voucher which included accommodation, breakfast and a bottle of wine, so a good deal. Unfortunately, it appeared that not all the staff had been briefed on what was included in the voucher and how to process it. Our room was allocated, but no other information was forthcoming and we had to ask about the routine for breakfast. As the wine wasn't already in our room, we had to ask at reception about it and were eventually given a voucher to take to the bar. It's easy to be critical, but on this occasion the staff at reception did leave a lot to be desired - perhaps more communication and training from management would have helped.
The location is by the M1, but we didn't notice any noise during the night, although this might be a different story in the Summer if you have a window open. However, you get what you pay for and this is still very good value for money and I would definitely recommend it.
