Service stations under scrutiny

New research has revealed the best and worst service stations around the UK, where customers are most and least likely to find good food, clean toilets and a guaranteed parking space.

Northgate Vehicle Hire created a weighted ranking for every motorway refuelling point in the UK by analysing the facilities found there. This includes the number and variety of restaurants, free wi-fi, hotels, showers and parking.

In total, there are 112 service stations on motorways on the mainland of the UK and this includes those which have separate entities on each side of the motorway. They can differ.

Cobham services on the M25 comes in at first place with a score of 9/10. There are 13 restaurants including a Nandos and Pizza Express, a laundrette and 4,260 parking spaces.

Chester services also scored highly, along with Corley on the M6 and Cherwell Valley hidden away on the M40.

The award for the UK's worst service station goes to Todhills on the M6, which boasts just a BP garage and a small Wild Bean Café.

Overall, the M11 has the best selection of service stations, and the M23 came out as the worst with just a Pease Cottage on offer.
