the midlands! .. anywhere near Lichfield/Tammy? ( i have mates there)

Guess anywhere within a 2-3 hour drive would be nice then ;-)

brill, find out dates/travel etc and then im sure one of us can come up with some cheap travel as well... unless you drive?

you had me worried there, i had to re read the passage.:thumbsup:

I've stayed in the one near Reading:

Pros:
Friendly Staff
Nice room
Flat screen tv
Free tea/coffee/internet

Cons:
Mediocre breakfast
Middle of nowhere
Swimming pool was cold

There is a golf course, but that might be a pro or a con depending on whether or not you play!

Hi we have stayed at the Warrington one many times, and altho it is on an office estate near the motorway, the hotel and grounds are lovely and it near to Chester, Cheshire Oaks, Liverpool and Manchester so loads to do nearby - esp Chester Zoo for the kids :-)

Also been to Daventry and Reading ones and again hotels are well away from shops etc but in great areas for sightseeing and decent towns for activities - and both have fantastic grounds and are lovely to stay in.

Enjoy your holiday - I am very jealous as I love these hotels :-) !!
