Passed through Adlestrop today, didn't try it, but it seems a rather smart room...

Still think my audax hotel on the Highlands 1000 last year trumps that by a long way.  Heating and lighting plus a door and windows that shut.

Not as impressive as Phil W's hotel, but I stopped off at this one for a 20 minute nap on Thursday.



There were quite a few good quality Audax hotels in the route I took, including one with a thatched roof!

There was a lovely Audax hotel on the A38 that I used a couple of times.

I would have posted a photo of it, however it was completely demolished by a vehicle that left the road  :o

Yep, I scoped it out on the first night with a quick 1 hour kip then used it again on the third night for a longer sleep. The heater was a bonus though I knew it was an unlocked waiting room and an unmanned station.  You had about a 7 hour window between the last train at night and first train in the morning.   I slept pretty well in there, nice and warm, silent, and the midges couldn't get in.  There were a couple of other unmanned station waiting room options further back up, and not too far off route, if I got the dozies before Crianlarich.
