The lighting in the room wasnt the best when trying to get ready......

putting make up on in a steamy bathroom or under a bathroom wasnt the best .

Super Stop for Star City!

A great hotel at a great price, ideally located for Fort Shopping and Star City.

Good service from an above average budget hotel

The staff greeted me well and were friendly and very helpful.

The room was clean and tidy, there was a few scratches on the wall (108) by the chair and table that if sorted would really make it an excellent for me. However for the price overall I was pleased and felt rested.

Friendly helpful staff. Second time stayed here.

Easy From M6 Junction 5? Not if you are Southbound!

Chose hotel for proximity to M6 and NEC for Horse of The Year Show.

Checked website directions to hotel 2 or 3 times on map and had already thought that it didn't look as outlined in hotel directions. This was the case, coming southbound THERE IS NO EXIT - NO JUNCTION 5. A 6 and a 4A but NO 5. Saw hotel sign from motorway but no way to get to it, complicated by the fact that the 4A junction is the branch of the M42. Difficult decisions on a wet dark night,,surrounded by traffic driving at motorway speeds, when you don't know the area. As I had researched the hotel/NEC we drove to NEC junction, turned around and retraced up M6 Northbound to junction 5. and found hotel. Girl on reception had no idea what we were talking about and wasn't interested.. It was fine for our return journey to NEC following day. Going North on Saturday morning, thanks to smart phones, accessed M6 via A38. We were able to sort ourselves out, many others would not and the information on the hotel website is misleading, or id there are other directions I certainly couldn't find them.

Overnight stay

We arrived at the hotel (after having to travel an extra half an hour because of the silly spaghetti junction, but I won't go into that!) to a friendly receptionist.

The hotel was nice and clean and the room smelled lovely upon entering. Slightly cold but cranked up the heating to max which sort of did the trick.

A quick break

Stayed with my husband whilst visiting my grandparents before the birth of our first child.

The room smelt strongly of smoke, although we didn't request to be moved it was offered but just wanted to highlight the fact to staff. We were then greeted with an apology and the offer of breakfast free of charge as compensation. I had to ask for a third pillow to support my substantial bump & the staff were more than happy to accommodate this. Unfortunately the disappointing aspects (although trivial) were the lack of hot chocolate, only 2 tea bags and no complimentary biscuits in our room, sure I've had these when I've stayed before & they're always a little welcome basic bonus in most 'travel inn' style places.
