We were given a room in the annex. It was so small with a bed pushed up against the wall. No bedside cabinets or lights. Lino on the floor, no rugs. It felt damp and was very, very basic. The continental breakfast was appalling with stale looking pastries, all just so unappetising.

You'd think it was good value for money BUT you have to accept appalling food and customer service. Car parking was a nightmare - they moved the car, had no idea where it or the keys were. When traced they took an hour before they would deliver us to it and it was miles away. Took two and half hour... More

Comfortable overnight stay before an early morning flight. Easy parking, good sized clean room, with comfortable bed, helpful reception staff, pleasant garden. Efficient shuttle to and from airport, good value for money.

we have stayed in De Salis hotel for one night before embarking our flight. Outside...not too bad and 4 stars on the board - WOW! Parking was tricky as there were cars abandoned everywhere, on the grass and in the flower beds! Inside we were greeted by some totally obscure wall paintings 'perfected' by someone who was obviously on some... More
