      As it was a last minute booking I was not expecting much just a box standard room somewhere to sleep but I was more than pleasantly surprised, deco in the room was lovely, hotel was very close to the town, friendly staff and delicious breakfast. I alredy tried to re book for New Year - unfortunately the hotel is fully booked.

      It is in the way of the Airlink Bus which make it easier to get into or from the airport. The room is modern and furnished to high standard.

      The room is small and kind of noisy. You can hear people in next room and corridor. The hotel is around 25 mins from the city and there are some road work in the way to there which make walking kind of hard specially if you have a pram to push.

      The staff were very helpful...our DVD wouldn't play in the room and we were switched to another room which was actually superior. Originally only booked for one night but, liked it so much we stayed for two!

      The location of our room was on th e ground floor by the front door and it was a little noisy later in the evenings as people came back from evening out. However, it didn't last too long.

      Its interior is modern; toiletries were first rate; bus to airpor leaves form stop next to the hotel

      Rooms are tiny and brekfast is expenisive; most importantly with all its virtues it is still far away from being worth of its cost which are over the top. Unless you have some one else paying your bills I suggest to look for better and cheaper hotels near the city center.

    • Family with children

      The rooms were lovely, well-furnished, and very comfortable.

      The restaurant (which was in the sister hotel right across the street, in and of itself not a problem) was poorly staffed when we went for dinner. The number and experience level of the wait staff was severely inadequate to serve the number of guests who were attempting to eat dinner - made worse by bad scheduling of dinner breaks for the staff at the height of the dinner rush. Of course, staff have a right to breaks - but don't schedule them for peak times!

      This hotel was excellent with very helpful staff. Lovely breakfasts. The room was of a high standard with a super bathroom. Very close to the City Centre with free parking on site.
