Stay before going in holiday fantastic facilities staff are very helpful and accommodating would recommend full English buffet everything available all hot as well look forward to our stay in Sept but unfortunately we fly to early to have the breakfast

I’m not sure what I expected when I booked a hotel right next the M1 Motorway but this was not it. The road noise is terrible and constant. I’m a heavy sleeper but it kept me awake until approximately 1 a.m. and then woke me again at 4 a.m. Keep in mind that this was a Saturday night/Sunday morning so probably quieter than midweek too. The room I was in - 305, is not air conditioned so I needed the window(s) open which increased the noise considerably. There is a small sign in the room which indicates that free earplugs are available from reception so they do acknowledge how noisy it is. On top of the road noise was a intermittent ‘pump’ type noise like a Saniflow or macerator type of thing which sounded regularly. The toilet flush squeaked, the shower dribbled noisily into the plastic cubicle. All in all, my ears took a battering from start to finish. Only one of the windows opened and I had to call the front desk to ask how this worked. The windows are roof light/Velux type. There is a panel on the wall with electric switches labelled Velux. This did not work as was confirmed by reception. The shower is of the type one sees from time to time in hotels which have been converted from houses (not that this one has). A self contained plastic unit which houses the shower, light and extractor in one. These are perfectly acceptable except for when they are so old that the plastic is cracking and crazing and is a sort of creamy off white. As mentioned earlier, the shower head dribbled profusely when in use, drumming onto the plastic shower base and making an awful din. There was a long dark hair on the outside of the toilet bowl and some suspicious white staining on the carpet - see photographs. Good points:- The free wi-fi works well and is fast enough to stream Netflix (10Mb down, 5Mb up was the average I achieved) Some of the public areas have been refurbished. Reception has had an update as has the adjacent restaurant and breakfast room. The food was perfectly acceptable too although the staff were what I can only describe as a little sombre. I wouldn’t stay here again mainly because of the noise and out dated room.

We stayed at this hotel as a stopover the staff were friendly on arrival plenty parking spaces as well the rooms were spacious and bathrooms were clean and it was quiet for a nice relaxing stay I would recommend this hotel

We stayed as a family of 4 in late July. It was everything we expected when paying £60 for one night. The rooms were clean and spacious, the bathroom was a little tired and in need of updating but for the budget apt. The staff were helpful and polite and we would defiantly stay again.

Stayed here for one night last week and we had a lovely time. Hotel was clean, modern and the staff on reception we're very helpful. Our room was very big and although noisy this is to be expected as we knew where the hotel was based before booking so not the hotels fault. Would recommend and stay again.

Stayed here for 1 night for a gig at Nottingham Trent university. Lovely reception modern decor and modern bar area polite staff on reception too. Rooms a bit small and too full and a little dated ! Skirting boards were filth with what looked like some sort of liquid has been spilt down them, comfy bed although the scatter cushions smelt a bit rusty and not had a change of cover in a while. All around not a bad stay for the cost of £90 a night but would have liked the room s little cleaner and more towels as only 2 provided in a double room isn't a lott ! Parking is free but very busy small car park on a first come first served basis. Close to what we needed and plenty of takeaways chip shops nearby if you didn't want to eat at the over priced restaurant.

Ideally situated as it is near to junction 25 of the M1. Although the motorway was close there was no noise. Rooms were clean and comfortable if a bit basic. Breakfast in the grill next door was fine, but the menu was limited. Price was reasonable otherwise nothing special.

I was very happy with my stay (still there in room 121) until i tried to get a bar of chocolate from the machine in the lobby. Machine didn't work and receptionist told me the machine has nothing to do with them and Ive lost my money. Not good enough im afraid.

My partner and stayed for one night and as it was my partners birthday they were kind enough to upgrade us and decorated the room with balloons and a banner! A very kind touch! The room was spacious and the bath was massive! We had a great nights sleep! A big thank you to the team from both of us!

...and thought it looked a bit dated from the outside. Inside it had clearly been refreshed recently and was presented quite nicely. Friendly reception staff and they pointed us to the room upstairs. Clean, tidy and about all you could need. Also had a business meeting here in one of their conference rooms on the first floor. Only downside was that the public toilets were downstairs from the first floor. Reasonable prices, nice hotel. Nothing out of the ordinary but perfectly acceptable.
