Booked a room for a work experience for our truck drivers. Was excellent. Location was easy to find and staff great. Would recommend going to toilet and buying water (if needed) before you go, as there is no toilet facility at the place.

Unfortunately it is a lease issue. We are in an old building which we can't alter therefore we can't add any facilities. I understand where you coming from but our hands are tied.
