rooms where lovely with super comfy bed and pillows. a little disappointed with no entertainment in regards to movies for the room. would have been great to see a selection of car/bike related movies available for viewing. ie. Fast and Furious, Days of Thunder, Herbie, Le Mans, the Worlds Fastest Indian etc

Hi Jo, Thankyou for your review. Im pleased your enjoyed our bedding, we get by far the most positive comments on our bedding. Thanks for your tip re movies, will certainly take that on board.

3 out of 5
new, relatively clean, but bland and sterile. No warmth or softness. it may be all about car racing but it is very stark and not welcoming. The staff were great but it's a big cavern when you walk in. The eating area is like a canteen out of some war film. Some plants/greenery and a little softening of the starkness would be good. Rooms were comfortable and clean but not inviting.

Hi Sheepie, Thankyou for your review. Im sorry you felt that the facility lacked warmth. The design of the building is to be that of an urban, industrial chic aesthetic and majority of guests comment on how unique the facility is. Your comments on our FUEL Restaurant were quite blunt to say the least, I trust that despite this you enjoyed our variety of meals on offer. Warm regards, Samantha
