Disappointing start at being confronted with parking charge from miserable reception staff. Room was ok, nice size, fairly clean comfortable bed and ok tv. Bathroom had a shower but no bath which would've been fine if the shower had given more than a dribble of water which was disappointing. Hotel was next to Harvester pub which was where evening meals...

We stayed here prior to boarding a flight from gatwick. Hotel excellent and staff very affiliated and welcoming. There is a harvester on site, staff are very grubby, unhelpful. Stay in the holiday inn for food and wine much more civilised and welcoming. We added purple parking to our hotel and for three weeks all included was less than a...

I stayed here for 2 nights as I needed a hotel close to the office and the hotels I normally stay in were fully booked. I have stayed in another hotel belonging to the same chain a few years ago and the experience was almost identical. It's not fancy but it is functional, the staff were well trained and courteous,...

For the price we paid not that impressed! It was clean, not much choice for breakfast & very much like a travel lodge so over priced I think, plus you have to pay a further £7 for parking! Wouldn't stay again!

We have previously stayed in this hotel and gave a positive review, once again we asked for a quite room and got the opposite, room 305 was close to the road at a level that picked up the traffic noise. Quite why extra noise protection isn't put into rooms like this I will never know. We told the people on...

The hotel offers the usual HIEx experience. Clean rooms, a small bar area, free breakfast - all done well and exceeding expectations. Staff are generally courteous and helpful. We opted to leave our car here for a few days while we travel to see family on the continent. This was reasonably easy to facilitate by 'booking' my car in using...

Though only an overnight stay everything including the central heating was in order. I should thank the Manager Prashant for keeping the place organised and the breakfast was ample in quantity and all the time being topped up.
