            The food is very good and the attched Indian fusion restaurant provides some choice. Room was pleasant. Staff helpful and griendly.

            Noisy fire doors near to the room.

            I think your Hotel is awesome!! I found it to be a great place to stay with nice staff a clean room and great breakfast. £79 is expensive but I guess you get what you pay for. I would stay at The Ramada again for sure!

            Upgraded to amazing suite for really good price upon check in, staff were really helpful and suggested champagne and strawberries. Brilliant India restaurant next door.

            Needs work on exterior deco.

            it had a car park. it was within our budget and travelling range for our excursion.

            had a normal key as keycard was broken. clean towels were left in hallway and room not made even though we were out. floors were all creaking as if we were in an 19th century hotel. booked two, rooms which were away from each other and were not told. (travelling with two teenage boys). card machine didnt work on checkout so had to leave card details.

            We stayed in the hotel as we were visiting Alton Towers. It was easy to find and plenty of parking. Friendly reception staff. Clean and bright bathroom. Huge, very comfortable bed.

            The hotel rooms were dated and needed a freshen up. Although our family room was large and the bed was clean the room was disappointing. Really creaky floorboards, the extra bed that was added to our room had no support at all. The photos on the website are quite deceiving, we were expecting a modern bright hotel, this isn't the case. Breakfast was quite expensive, though children did eat free. The room had sash windows which had no safety stops on them, not ideal in a family room as the rooms are not air conditioned and the window needs to be open for fresh air.

            The hotel had a wedding reception on the Saturday and our bedroom was above where it was held and the disco was so loud we could not sleep till it finished at about midnight. We could only open the small window as the big ones were sealed shut because we overlooked the roof so it was warm in the room.

            booking was easy , location was convenient, price was right, staff at reception were excellent - very welcoming and efficient. I would recommend this hotel to others and I would use it again.

            The food was excellent

            The Layout of the hotel is bizarre, there are stairs everywhere, we booked 2 rooms and they were at opposite ends of the hotel which would be very difficult if we were travelling with kids instead of my mother in law.

            7.0

            Rooms were clean.

            Extra bed was not allowed in the room which was requested at booking. No soap in the bathrooms and the hotel was "out."

            The Indian Restaurant

            It was disappointing because it had an air of trying to do everything with the least possible effort and cost. There was no soap provided in the bathroom and on the first night there was just one sachet of shampoo and that was all. There was a tissue box - empty. I waited 40 minutes for dinner on the second night and when it came it was awful. The teapot from which we had to pour our own tea at breakfast was disgusting. There was one old toaster which took forever to toast the bread. There was just no service or attention to detail at all.

            We were staying overnight for my sons graduation we met him from work and he came to the hotel for a meal

            We have stayed in lots of different hotels this one was very basic in what it provided in the way of extras ie no toiletries biscuits or information in the room of what is on in the hotel also twice I went to the bar there was no one to serve and the tables had not been cleared either it was not busy the meal was not that good either just very basic thank you

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            The staff were friendly and very helpful. Their service was excellent. There was a large car park with plenty of space. The 'bar', 'foyer' and 'breakfast room' were good.

            The Hotel is in need of some refurbishment. The room we stayed in was fine except for a badly stained yellow carpet, which gave the appearance of being grotty, although it was clean. The attached 'Indian restaurant' was not attractive at all from the approach, the facade needs to be made more welcoming. For that reason we never used it.

            The hotel facilities were very modern and the whole hotel had a nice updated look.

            I do like to be able to sleep when I stay in a hotel and on Friday and Saturday nights the loud music from the function room kept me awake until the early hours. It was so loud I couldn't even hear the tv in my room. Also the toilet was dirty when I arrived and was not cleaned properly by the staff for the entire 3 days I stayed.

          • Single
            5.4

            Friendly staff and good food. Comfy bed and well laid out room.

            Hair conditioning products were available for use but there was no soap in the toilet to wash my hands. My room overlooked the busy road outside which was quite noisy at night and the windows didn't appear to block out the sound. Quite noisy corridors I.E. room doors clattering at all hours, creaky floorboards, walls were quite thin too so could hear other people's conversations in rooms nearby. Also they provide tea and coffee making facilities but the inside of the kettle put me off.

          • Older travelers
            6.0

            Convenience - proximity to place to be visited

            Room and hotel generally in need of refurbishment. Old steel window frames, stained old carpet and poorly fitting bedroom door.
