Didn't realise location was so close to M1 junction, once refurbished all rooms will be good, our first room was to hot and claustrophobic (not refurbed) but moved to a refurbished room which was very good.

I’m afraid to say this but if the hotel is going to charge £23 for a sirloin steak please do not serve up a piece of meat that was disgraceful. You should be sacking your butcher.
