Willingham stay
I picked the Porterhouse due to its location for work the next day. Check in was fine and to have a little kitchen on hand was a lovely touch and help yourself to what you might like if you wanted to use it (I only used the kettle to make a drink) The wifi was not working at all during my stay which was really annoying as I needed it for work and the french doors in the kitchen kept blowing open and the heating would not come on so it was cold. It is right on the side of the road by traffic lights so for me personally the road noise was too much and the lack of internet and being cold meant I didn't enjoy my stay there as much as I could have. The place is clean, the kitchen great and there is pub food which I didn't try, and if you are used to road noise it could be great for others, just not right for me I'm afraid.
