Thank you for your review. Glad you appreciated our breakfast. We don't cook everything all together then keep it hot, too much experience of Motorway meals to subject our guests to that sort of food! Everything is cooked individually just in time to suit our guests and the portions are generous. Hope to see you again.

Stayed here for 5 nights for visiting the NEC (Crufts). Comfortable, clean and convenient! Perfect facilities and environment for me. Christine and Lionel always gave me warm-hearted service and support. I really appreciate them. With their advice I could do fruitful business and enjoy Midlands. I should stay here again in near future. Thank you!
