Terrible - avoid.
This review refers to my most recent stay for which the text I wrote didn’t save. I booked a deluxe room expecting the same amazing room as my first stay. Wrong. It was postage stamp sized with a noisy air con unit the size of a fridge freezer in it. The condensation bucket was full with a load of mosquitos flying around it - I tipped it away and killed the mosquitoes. The bathroom was even smaller than you get in an average caravan with a shower that leaked and turned the bathroom floor into a paddling pool. The worst bit was returning after seeing a friend. The entry system didn’t work and nobody answered the call button. After standing there continuously trying, another couple arrived and had the same issue. Tried calling the number and got an Indian call centre who had no concept of the time of day and accused us of not having checked in. No staff available to let us in either but someone was on their way. To make matters worse, I had forgotten to take my Parkinson’s Disease medication and it was in my room!! Pathetic service - nobody available to complain to and over an hour spent in the cold at 2am. Eventually another guest came and let us in. Checked out in the morning and nobody to complain to. Absolutely will never EVER use OYO hotels again.

Nice hotel but we were placed in the loft space, was so hot. A fan that blew warm air, a window that was A4 size that wouldn’t fully open. 2 tea bags, 1 coffee and 1 milk so no refreshments. Got there at 3pm no food, local pub stop serving food so had a 20 min drive to get something to eat.

Worst stay ever
Arrived to this ‘deluxe’ room, with no windows, and a skylight that had no blind, which was directly above the bed. This meant it let in light, and a lot of noise from the A38 which is next to the hotel, but no view whatsoever. The room smelt damp on our arrival, so we turned on the air conditioning, which was so loud you couldn’t hear the TV over it. The entire place feels very poorly built, and we heard a lot from the other guests along the stairs outside of our room. The bathroom felt like a caravan bathroom. When I enquired as to whether this was actually a deluxe room, the manager informed me that it is classed as a deluxe room, but in his opinion it needed to be changed, but had no control over what was stated as a deluxe room. He mentioned that he would have offered a change of room, but it was a full house. He offered no other kind of remuneration. We had visited the restaurant in the hotel the year previously, finding that the restaurant was very nicely appointed, we imagined that the hotel would have been lovely, despite the poor reviews here. I was wrong. I have never said this about a hotel before but we would never stay here again.

Okay but could be better
Hotel was completely dead when we arrived although it was very nicely renovated. Has a large car park although you must remember to put in your car reg at reception, not sure why charges are in place here, I can see why this might confuse some customers. The restaurant and bar were not available, from previous reviews it has been this way for some time which seems a loss to the business and customers, it looked great in there! Would have been nice for advice where we could go to eat or a mini fridge in rooms to keep our own food. Room was basic but clean and comfortable. Unfortunately due to the location next to the motorway we could hear traffic even through the double glazed windows which along with the constantly running toilet made sleep difficult. Unfortunately we lost our room card, no one at reception to help so had to call a number left there. The manager seemed reluctant to come help and came across a bit standoffish which made me uncomfortable, but he came to reception. He did not seem very friendly but did provide us with a new card. From my impressions the reception is never manned. Overall I would say this place is okay to stay for a night or 2 but has the potential to be good roadside hotel and a great place to eat, but seems there are a few things holding it back- mainly the lack of friendly staff, a place to eat and an upgrade to the windows for noise control
