Travel

Our venue, the Quality Hotel, is very easy to get to from most of the country.

Public Transport

Nearest railway station: Stoke-on-Trent.

On the West Coast Mainline between London (1.5hrs) and Manchester (40 mins), Stoke-on-Trent is easy to reach by train.  There are also direct trains to a variety of other stations, including Crewe, Derby, Birmingham, Milton Keynes, Coventry, Oxford, Reading, Bournmouth, Bristol and Exeter.  You can plan your journey and buy tickets in advance from the National Rail website.

From the Station

The hotel itself is a 1.5 mile walk from the station, and usually takes perhaps 15-30 minutes depending on your walking speed. Alternatively you can grab a taxi for the 10 minute journey to the hotel, which generally costs about £5 - come out of the main station entrance and turn left to find the taxi rank.

Stoke-on-Trent is in the Midlands, just off the M6 where it meets the A50 dual carriage way which connects it to the M1, making it easy to reach by road from, well, pretty much everywhere. 

Parking

That there is a carpark at the hotel which is free for residents, from which there is step-free access into the hotel.

IMPORTANT: If using the car park you MUST make sure you register your car registration at reception as soon as you arrive, or a ticket will be automatically issued for your car which neither we, nor the hotel, can cancel or reimburse.
