Stopped here only to use the toilets, but the car park was very odd - lots of large plastic barriers erected all over the place. No idea why, but it only served to make drivers confused about where to drive and the routes to follow....Strange.More

shocking services. queued to get in so kids had to get out of car and go into services while I sat in traffic. daughter then came out and we swapped so I went to use toilets. When I came back out she had moved about...100yards!! It took us about 2hours to get in and out of the car park and not stopping!! The signage was bad and cars were making there own lanes out causing carnage. No one directing the traffic and staff were standing laughing at the situation. It was an accident waiting to happen. AVOID THESE SERVICES UNLESS YOU HAVE A SPARE COUPLE OF HOURS TO WASTE.More

Absolutely terrible. Queues to get in and longer queue to get out! Very very slow so avoid at all costs! There doesn’t seem to be a reason why the queue is so bad!

ALL IN ALL THER WORST EXPERIANCE I HAVE EVER HAD IN A SERVICES.More

Called in today,the place was terrible,long queues to eat,next to nowhere inside to sit,and a place that looks like its not been looked after for at least 20 years All I could think was how I passed umpteen signs urging me to take a break...and informing me that tiredness kills but after visiting Gordano I think I will take my chances and just carry on driving..More

Payed £29 to stay here, in the parking area for more than 2 hours. Went to get a shower, wasn't expecting much, took my own cardboard for getting out the shower cubicle as I have seen what some motorway services are like. This was really...neglected. I don't expect much as I am only a truck driver, but I had to think twice about using it. It was cringe worthy. Does the manager not do any spot checks on the cleaners standards maybe?? Some welcome break service areas and facilities are good, but not here. They deserve an award at welcome break on the A14 near Kettering, Rothwell. Says secure parking but there are no personnel on patrol, only a few cctv cameras. Maybe they depend on the big companies paying these charges at services like Gordano, but it's not cheap when you are parking your own truck.More

Busy! Female toilets dreadful- most, if not all loo doors have no locks. Excellent quick service from the outside Good Breakfast stall: coffee and bacon baps good. Service at Waitrose friendly. This Welcome Break facility is outdated and in need of refurbishment whereas the franchised...outlets are good. Lack of managerial response to recent posts suggests either despondency or complacency. Or perhaps a pending takeover.More

A parking scheme that must have made some sense to someone at sometime; but not to me. Long food queues and poor food (KFC).

Super busy. Parking a nightmare with small spaces especially if you have a large car. Waitrose shop and some food options available

General service station grot. A lot of food options are closed at the moment and what is available is poor quality! Keep driving!
