  • The location is perfect as is a walking distance to the airport, the best Hotel I have stayed in.

    The staff at the front desk seemed uninterested and snobby, and a room that had a window that opened would have been good.

  • Good location and great airport hotel. Excellent staff, comfortable beds and continental buffet.

    The heating in the rooms was poor and the irons were not effective, the coffee was undrinkable and the hot food barely warm.

  • Near to airport, clean and good value, very friendly and helpful service from the moment of arrival. Comfy and large bed, early breakfasts.

    Unhelpful staff on reception and £800 for room only is unfair.

  • Good location for the airport and enjoyable Stay. Wonderful wedding venue and the bar is nice as is the lobby area. Staff on duty over the weekend excellent and the price is right & the rooms are comfortable.

    For the pricey nature of the place i would have expected complimentary breakfast and services available are greatly overpriced. No shower cap either is really annoying for the female traveller, the food in the restaurant is bad.
