The good things were: (1) plenty of car parking space; (2) comfortable bed; (3) convenient for the M4 motorway; (4) cooked breakfast The bad things were: (1) tired decoration; (2) the shower control came off in my hand; (3) the shower was fixed to the wall, so it's necessary to contort oneself to rinse the soap off the less exposed...

I stayed here Monday to Friday for three weeks. For me it was a very basic hotel, dated but everything is in working order. There's a variety of breakfasts. There are a lot of workmen here as it's quite cheap and cheerful. Not the place in my opinion to take a partner. However, this hotel consistently was the cheapest around....

Basic but clean. The rooms are dated but functional, shower room very old fashioned but worked. Breakfast OK but nothing special. Room was on the front of the hotel so quite a lot of traffic noise. On the plus side, I ordered a single bed but got a double room for the price. Staff are friendly. Can't complain at the...

Stayed here as part of work and it was nice, cheap and cheerful. The daily breakfast was a good spread and filling with a lot to go around. Will stay here again if working in the area and need somewhere to stay.

This is my fourth attempt to write a honest review but the words I want to use to describe this hotel I can't so trying to be politically correct me and my son stayed in room 49 he got in the single bed but was woken up by things biting him so being honest the bed needs to be removed...

Probably one of the worst hotels I've ever seen! Uneven floors, trip hazards, fire doors propped open (hello health and safety???) signs of water leaks and missing polystyrene panels in hall ceilings. Albeit there was an en suite, this looked cobbled together and like a grubby and tired relic from the 1960's, as does the rest of the place. The...

The Elmhurst is convenient for my business appointments, but you wouldn't come for a holiday. It is typically a contractors' overnight stay place. The staff are pleasant enough and the rooms clean and functional. There is ample car parking and the hotel does offer evening meals, but only until 8:00pm. There is a nearby pub which offers good food, and...

“The road outside the hotel can get quite busy at peak times. It's not unbearably noisy, but a room at the back would presumably be quieter.”
