Unexpectedly great.

From the location, tucked under the M74 you wouldn't expect too much.

We checked in before going off to visit friends so we we know how to find it in the dark. We were given an upgrade to an ensuite and the room was excellent. Well equipped with TV, hairdryer, toiletries. Very comfortable bed with quality bedding. Despite being close to motorway it was not noisy. Breakfast next day was very good, plenty of choice,well cooked and the tea and coffee also good - better than some more expensive places. We were made very welcome and the lady in the cafe was cheerful and pleasant. It's a good place to break a long journey.

Lovely clean spacious room. Motorway very close but not much noise. We met several staff who were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was super.
