Brilliant value great room clean lovely staff and breakfast well decorated good parking facilities internet not too bad just struggle for signal in some places but don't let that put you off overall brilliant experience

I always consider Best Western to be mid range but this was more like a travel lodge to me. Clinical room and not welcoming. The heating is primitive and is located under the TV shelf and it is really difficult to see the temperature. When we arrived it was cold and we thought that by putting the key card in the electric supply we would get heating but nothing happened and then found that the temperture was at 14c. The room has no reading lamps over the beds and there is only ONE plug socket in the room so could not charge my phone next to the bed. Very very disappointed and will not be staying here again. Management did apologies but at the end of the day its a cheap BW so you don't get much. On the other hand the breakfast was brilliant.

Hotel was clean and comfortable. It was extremely quiet resulting in two nights uninterrupted sleep. The Team was at all times courteous and accommodating. Breakfast was excellent particularly the full English which consisted of varied good quality produce.

A comfortable bedroom, quiet and peaceful, helpful reception staff, the food was very good, the hotel was a stopping of point on our journey, good value for money. Will stay the Best Western again in the future.

This was a very pleasant Hotel. The rooms were Clean and spacious. The staff were very helpful and the food was very good. We did not arrive until very late as the traffic was very heavy but we were greeted by a very nice member of staff who allocated our rooms very quickly.

Room was on the ground floor so it was quite noisy. I am a Best Western diamond card holder i was not offered a room upgrade, it was not even discussed, and i had to ask for a free paper which is an automatic entitlement only to be told that it may not have arrived by the time i wish to check out 9.00a.m. the bathroom needed updating the shower was awful fluctuation in temperature of the water and it was a very old type shower head,also a shower curtain not great. Poor quality beds a bit like Days Inn by comparison.

We only stayed one night but were very happy with both accommodation and breakfast. The staff were pleasant and helpful. We really couldn't fault the place other than to say that the coffee mugs at breakfast had silly handles which made them difficult to hold. If that was all that we noticed could have been better we can definitely say we were happy!

Thanks to Robin for making the arrangements and Helen and Mark for looking after our Christmas Party. Not forgetting the Night Porter who insisted I left the clearing up to him. DJ good too providing varied music throughout the night. All went smoothly and the team very helpful.

Right next to the M42, but a quiet location. Google maps shows the hotel as being about a mile up the road - near to a similar named hotel. Room was fine for a 1 night stay, good wifi connection, Breakfast provided a reasonable choice, from a self service menu. At the special prices being offered in December it offered very good value for money.

Excellent value for money. I Would definately come back and reccommend it to family and friends. The two rooms we booked were very clean. The breakfast was cooked to order and really tasty. Plenty to choose from
