Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Batsworthgrump The Return of the Useless Wifi
Unfortunately the really poor wifi has returned again. I stopped staying here several months ago because of the useless wifi at that time. Having been assured that the whole system had been replaced with a much higher bandwidth I tried here again. My mistake. Internet access so slow it is worse than useless for a business hotel (and two different TVs wouldn't work properly in the room either).

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by scorguie Disaster...
The bedroom key lock system failed the previous day, which resulted in staff having to let us in to our rooms in each instance. as a result of this the hotel was very noising, and the air conditioning system was locked in cooling mode, which was not conducive to comfort with external temperatures below 10degc
HOWEVER the staff were fantastic and the hotel is clean tidy and in good location

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ts & M Great rooms, great price, great stay!
We've stayed at this hotel a couple of times now - for a short break and as a travel stop off. Each time the hotel has been really clean, rooms spacious and Air con works well. No horrible rooms / bathrooms here!
A major reason for choosing this hotel is that my dog is always made welcome and the staff are a pleasure - helpful and always pleasant.
Parking is excellent, breakfasts are great - plentiful and a good choice, especially since it's included in the room rate.
A real 'find'!

From the outside this hotel looks like a factory, but its a large contrast from when you walk through the doors...it would give the two local premier inns a run for their money in modernisation and space.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MMGF Staff always great, but a new mattress needed.
Usual HIE quality and value for money, but the bedroom would benefit from some attention to furnishings.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Troy87 Overnight
We have used this hotel a number of times as an overnight stop on the way south. We normally don't stop on the return journey but are considering this option. From our previous stays the food has improved but the breakfast could have bit more variety. It is adequate but it's the only minor gripe.
Hotel and staff are excellent.

Visiting family in the area Preston South was the ideal location with its close proximity to three motorways. The staff were most helpful with my requests and it was not possible to find fault with the excellent breakfast range.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sinbad52 Oasis on the M6
We pulled in to this oasis of a hotel after a 6 hour drive from the North East of Scotland to very warm, friendly and cheerful welcome from the Reservation Staff. They were expecting us and it took no time at all to check in. The hotel is very clean, bright, fresh, spacious and easy to find just of the slipway at J29 on the M6. Our room was very clean, comfortable and ideal for our weekend stay. The evening menu is a wee bit limited, but we had no complaints about the quantity or quality of food provided by efficient and smiling staff. We will certainly be stopping here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TravellingCatMan Lovely modern hotel
GREAT staff on reception and in restaurant/bar.
Clean and smart nearly new hotel with planty of parking and nicely equipped rooms.
Minor issues are that their are bulbs that need replacing in room 26 and it could do with coat hooks near the door and hooks behind the bathroom door for dressing gowns etc.
As the hotel is so new may I suggest the manangement company take up an issue with the builders - in that the frame around the fire exit door in the restaurant is looking extremely shoddy and much older than it actually is.
You should get the builders to fix it under whatever guarantee scheme you may have.

Was very impressed to see gluten free bread and cereal available , in addition to the cooked full English breakfast. Very surprised to see a dinner menu as well. A cut above most HIExpress in the USA.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cmac great hotel
Great hotel, very clean and tidy, very helpful and attentive staff. Good choice of breakfast items. Made booking via web whilst travelling then phoned hotel to ask for interconnecting rooms. This had been arranged by the time I arrived. All very easy to do. Only fault is the mattress which I have similarly commented on at other HI hotels. Fine probably for one person but for two, when one person turns over, it sends the other one flying! Not enough springs. They are of substandard quality and really let down what is otherwise a great hotel.

This hotel is ideally placed to visit the surrounding area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Charles Of Manorbier. Great stay, BUT!
Almost everything was excellent at this hotel, staff, facilities, cleanliness, services, and easy access to the motorway network.
However I was disappointed that the rooms allowed quite a high level of noise ingress from the corridors and upstairs room. I personally did not find the pillow comfortable but that is down to personal choice, my son found them acceptable.
What was very disappointing was the cooked breakfast, it was definitely NOT a full English, only scrambled egg, beans and sausages, on the menu, no tomatoes either tinned or fresh and in particular NO BACON, mushrooms or hash browns. That said, what was available was of good quality especially the sausages.There was of course a good varied continental menu
Overall a pleasant stay, drinks prices were reasonable at the bar and I would definitely recommend this hotel to others.
