stayed here a few times, never disappointed. Very clean room, helpful service, comfortable bed, and the breakfast is simple but useful when travelling. I stayed here with my husband and left the car for 2 weeks. No waiting to be taken to airport for very early flight. On return only a few minutes wait to be collected and taken to... More

This is our second time using this guest house after a late flight from holiday. It's located so close to the airport, and they do a free shuttle bus transfer and on both occasions have been prompt at picking us up and dropping us back in the morning to get our coach home. The rooms are clean and comfortable with... More

We were very pleasantly surprised with the quality of the accommodation bearing in mind the star rating. Big room. Big TV. Big bed. Big shower. Small small price. Considering the place is across the road from the airport, it was very quiet. Will definitely book again. Small downer is the breakfast which is a traveller's meal of an apple, cereal... More

This is great place to stay at either before an early morning flight or after returning on a late evening flight. Its literally minutes away from the airport and you will either be picked up or dropped off by the hotel depending on whether you are arriving or departing. The standard and size of the room was brilliant. We did... More

We stayed here before an early flight from Bristol. The room was lovely. The carpet was nice and thick, the décor was modern and the tv was huge, also free wifi in the room.The bathroom was nice and clean. The breakfast pack was also good to take with us to eat on the way. I wish we had arrived earlier... More

Stayed here overnight in a lovely room, hidden from the road literally across the road from the airport. The room had everything you could want, (TV, Shower, kettle etc) which absolutely spotless & modern. Transfers were spot-on with warm and friendly staff which was an added bonus. Left our car in their safe hands in a gated secure area. We... More
