Moto - My stop of choice on a long car journey

AdvantagesWell thought out facilities for familes/babies.

DisadvantagesPrices. Some locations aren't as clean or well stocked as others.

"...stopped at a services (not Moto - Roadchef I think) and found the facilities to be very limited. However on my second journey I stopped at a Moto and I have to say from now on I will aim to stop at Moto services above all others. I was so impressed with the family/baby facilities. All motos should provide free baby food, nappies and baby wipes, steribottles, bibs, bowls, spoons, use of microwave and bottle warmer. Now obviously not everything ..." Read review

A refuge from the M1..Woolley Edge services

Advantagesyou know what to expect, somewhere to stop if you are tired

Disadvantagesexpensive food

"...them- if you use the Moto baby feeding station you can get free Organix baby food, a free sterile bottle, microwaveable bowls, bibs, papmers nappies and spoons.. If you have children you can get childrens ' meals and there is a childrens fenced play area for children up to the age of 9 where you can lock them into the enclosure and sit outside. Burger King Good food but at inflated price. I think this is unfair becasue it's a captive audience ..." Read review

Moto Services, Thurrock M25

AdvantagesNo other alternative!

DisadvantagesJust all round nasty

"It was lashing down with rain when we pulled in at these services en route to Cambridge with a hungry 3 year old in tow. So I will give the cleaners the benefit of the doubt, as the entrance to the place was filthy - muddy footprints, and hazardous wet floors. Anyway we headed straight for the "restaurant" and breakfast. £7.99 for a plate of wilting toast, a couple of greasy sausages, an egg, some beans and some bacon wasn't the worst part! On top ..."

M1 Toddington Moto services - Southbound

AdvantagesGreat facilities for babies and kids

DisadvantagesHigh prices

"Had the pleasure of stopping at the Toddington services on the Southbound M1 on 18th May, 2004. It was about 1pm and the car park was around half full so no problems parking. Nice touch at the entrance to the building was the Pet Station with bowls of water and dog biscuits for the canine guests. Only guide dogs are allowed into the building but there was a small grassed area at the side where dogs could stretch their legs and do what dogs do best. Firstly ..." Read review

Quick review of Moto Motorway Service Stations

"The problem with this service statiobn is where to park if you are in a large van . If you park in a car place you get clamped . if you park in a caravan place you get clamped , if you park in a HGV place geuss what you get clamped . The management don't want to know ,couldn't give a damm in fact . Ihasten to add I haven't been clamped but many friends and acciotes have . So if you drive anything other than a car AVOID like the plague . I personally will make a concious effort not to use any Moto services for this reason.

Quick review of Moto Motorway Service Stations

"I am horrified using services for the first time in ages that they charge after 2 hours of parking."Take a break,tiredness kills" says the government then takes money from the likes of Moto to rip people off whilst they try to be safe.A truck driver told me he had to pay £35 of his own money to sleep over night!Thesedrivers do important work,they can kill when driving if tired. Another example of caring UK.In Europe the rest areas are free,the cafes are clean, unlike the filthy Burger .king we used at Moto near Bristol,tables and floor soiled with food.The prices are expensive ,I advise others to go off the motorway for services to avoid extortionate prices both for fuel and food.

WHAT A RIP - OFF!!!

Advantagessell good things and are handy when on long drives

DisadvantagesRIP OFF

"Whichever Moto you turn to, to stop off at, you will always find their prices are absolutely disgraceful! Whether your buying a meal for your family, buying some sweets for the journey or just stopping for a drink they will always be really expensive. I'm srprised you don't have to pay them to wipe your own a**. Inside this particular service station I stopped off at we decided to eat at the Burger King as we had some kids with us. We went to ..."

Quick review of Moto Motorway Service Stations

"Used Winchester service area Northbound a few days ago - Moto have recently taken this over from RoadChef who seemed to run the site well in the past. This time it was appalling. Limited options as only 1 warm food outlet open while BurgerKing was being built. The meals (at 2.15pm) were dried up and dreadful. Chilli and curry both so stale they were crusted over, fried fish that was chocolate brown, rice that you could build a wall with. Everything on offer was similarly unappetising. Bad hygiene - handling food immediately after operating till and taking money, and miserable staff. FInally - charged 20p for sachet of HP sauce - not saying that it was available for free just yards away with the cutlery! AVOID!

M6 - Knutsford Services

AdvantagesYou can sleep in the car park

Disadvantagesexpensive, poor food, indifferent staff

"I should start by saying that this review relates only to Knutsford. For all I know, other sites may be better. I am of the view that motorway service stations have improved somewhat in recent years - though they still have a long way to go. However, I recently arrived at Knutsford at 8 a.m. one morning and had an experience very much akin to the bad old days. The first stop was the toilet. Not bad and basically clean. Then up to the restaurant ..." Read review

Visit to Turfhills service area Kinross

AdvantagesThe fuel part of the service was superb, with a smiling greeting

DisadvantagesThe food section wasbeing cleaned and it was as though we were interupting them

"As I travel a lot from Aberdeen to the midlands of England. Kinross is my first port of call, usually during the daytime. On Tuesday 23rd September I decided to travel overnight and still use the same places, on calling for fuel at 1.54 am I was met by a cheery good morning by a young man sweeping the forecourt, filled up then decided to have a coffee. that was my big mistake, 2 coffees one black just 1/2 a cup and topped up with water the other normal ..."

==Moto motorway Services - Complain with Poo.==

Advantagesnone

DisadvantagesDirty, pricey, smelly, old, Don't use.

"To the CEO of Moto Motorway Services. We recently visited the Moto Services Cardiff, where I was waiting for friends to catch up with us, as they had broken down and were awaiting the breakdown service, we went inside to be greeted by what seemed to be a very dated building dating back to my childhood (30 years ago), and it looked its age, the toilets were dirty, full of human waste, and the smell was overpowering, totally disgusting. The prices ..." Read review
