Stayed here for four days on a work trip. The rooms are spotlessly clean, good showers with everything you would need. Breakfasts were also lovely with a choice of beans, eggs, sausages (no bacon). There was fruit, yoghurts, cheeses as well as pastries and small rolls. There was more than enough choice with juices, coffee and teas. The staff truly...

Wonderful receptionist on arrival. Checked us in quickly, professionally and made us feel very welcomed. Room was comfortable and clean. Couldn't ask for a better Manager, or bar and restaurant staff. Steaks were perfectly cooked and a good selection on the cheese board. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks Mark Charlie and Staff.

I stay regularly here, and at other brands. Rooms are excellent, modern, good shower. Staff very friendly. But sort your breakfast out. Rubber eggs, no bacon, instant coffee. You are way off the pace compared to other budget hotels.

Thanks for the great review. Great to hear you found our newly updated rooms to be clean. Our current breakfast is a continental with the addition of three hot items (beans, sausages and scrambled eggs) I do know the company is looking into how breakfast can be enhanced, so it will be even better when you come next time.

My wife and I stayed here last weekend. It is very convenient to Peterborough town centre by car, with it being just a few miles away. The room was fresh and very clean, with an extremely comfortable bed. We considered the breakfast buffet choice to be very good for what we had paid per night. The staff were very polite...

Housekeeping immaculate and friendly, helpful staff. Breakfast more than adequate although I didn't try the cooked option. Dinner poor and rather chaotic service, but much better than The Harvester next to the hotel - dreadful! Walk down to The Cuckoo pub (about 10 minutes away), it's much better. Overall though, it was perfect for what I needed, and would definitely...

We spent one night here. Received a warm welcome, drink and snack before going to our room. The room was clean and bed reasonably comfortable. However, the breakfast wasn't anything to write home about!

I liked this hotel - good facilities in the room and around the hotel. On arrival I was given the option of having an upstairs or downstairs room which, at the time, I quite liked, but once I got to my room it was quite cold. I think it would be better to pre-allocate a room for you and have...
