Cleanliness of toilets was rated as satisfactory by 89% of visitors, while friendliness and helpfulness of staff scored 94%.

Visitors were least satisfied with the value for money of the food and drink they bought, at just 69%.

Transport Focus chief executive Anthony Smith said: “As the country emerges out of lockdown and people take to the roads for staycations this summer, motorway services will provide a vital opportunity for drivers to take a break on their journey.

“Motorway services provide customers with a great experience with friendly and helpful staff, but there is still room for improvement when it comes to the value for money of the food and drink on offer.”
