Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Liz80 brilliant for families.
We stayed here to visit local attractions wit our young daughters aged 4 and 1. The staff were fantastic with the girls and it was a family friendly experience. Will def stay again and would def recommend, especially for families. Brilliant value and lovely rooms.

Having just got off my 3rd plane from Adelaide, I was driven here by company driver and deposited at reception with the hope of storing my luggage whilst I went to the office for the day in Rugeley.
The check in staff offered me a room to use for a shower (darn Cathay Pacific have stopped on arrival lounge access) which was brilliant. After shower and pressing my shirt, off to work.
On return, I had been moved to second floor with a road view.
Room was good, I didn't really like the bed - I'm pretty fussy with beds, bathroom was good - didn't like the way the door closed as I jammed my fingers twice in this stay.
Biggest disappointment was the food (breakfast was ok). I had a curry and nan the first night there. The curry, well I didn't eat it as it was horrid - like it came from a can or something and the nan, it was so hard it was inedible. I complained to the waitress but her care factor was pretty low. I dined elsewhere for the next 4 nights and the 2 nights in my following stay.
Beer on tap is reasonably priced and in general the staff are friendly and will have a chat with you whilst sitting at the bar - this is good when travelling international by yourself.
Second biggest disappointment was no in-house laundry - for overnight guests this is OK, but for someone staying longer periods, it is a pain in the butt. There is no official laundry or dry cleaner at the hotel either, but the brilliant front desk staff managed to get a couple of shirts washed and pressed as well as some jeans I had spilled wine on whilst flying. The nearest coin laundry is Litchfield, you can leave clothes overnight for laundry.
Overall, not a bad place to stay and I will use it as my choice of hotels when in the area for business from now on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by msjrichards13 Great couple of nights
Had a really good couple of nights sleep here on business.
Arrived to my bonus points/free drinks offer, and checked in prior to the allowed check in time. no complaints.
Hotel was clean, breakfast was good. Very good all round.
