Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rorry Maybe I'll try somewhere else next time...
I’ve stayed here a few times – usually I drive down from the NW in the evening so arrive late, stay over then leave next morning. After you’ve found it the first time it’s quick and easy to get to off the M4. I like the Executive rooms and think they’re worth the nominal extra cost.
However this time I had a room facing the back of the hotel and could hear a dull extractor fan type noise all night. There were also several sharp bangs (could be doors banging but sounded more forceful than that) during the night. It probably wouldn’t bother most people but I’m the sort of person who can’t sleep if I can hear a clock ticking, so I didn’t sleep well at all.
I was also a bit miffed to be charged for parking this time. I’ve never been asked to pay before – I always assumed it was included for overnight guests and at £12 it makes quite an impact on the overall cost. Bit annoying to find there’s a park & fly deal which gives 4 days parking for £11 – it would be nice if there was a rate which included parking for those on a brief overnight stay, perhaps as part of the Executive room package and / or for IHG members.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JimM006 Great Facility, A bit isolated
The facility and the staff were excellent. However, The location is unreachable except by car or taxi. Access from public transit is very difficult.
There is no easy access to any area restaurants or shops, but restaurants in the hotel are very good.
The airport shuttle is not provided by the hotel and is not free. This appears to be typical of all the facilities in the area.
