Only 5 minutes from airport. Room was of very good size ( better than hotel in Mallorca ), a comfortable kingsize bed, a sofa, 40inch tv & a modern bathroom ( includes toiletries ). There were tea & coffee making facilities & a breakfast bag provided. The room even overlooked a pleasant lawned area. Absolutely no noise. Booking in &... More

Easy to find and only a couple minutes from the airport. Met at the gate and after the normal paperwork we were shown to an annexe about 50 yards from main building. Very clean comfortable room with TV and Coffee/Tea making facilities, and modern bathroom, Small breakfast bag supplied free, which was much appreciated. No aircraft noise noticeable during our...

I usual book hotels with parking, but the prices lately are silly!! I found Acorns on the internet and Im so glad I did. On arrival we were welcomed by the gentleman who takes you too the airport. We were given a family room of two bedrooms which was great as it felt like having a suite. The rooms have... More

It was easy enough to find - and very close to the airport. Room was fine - clean and basic but everything you needed. Breakfast bag was good as our flight was early. You did hear people coming and going but we had the window open as it was a hot night - so that wasn't surprising. Didn't really notice... More

This was our third stay at Acorns. Great accomodaction and service and so handy for the airport. However, this year I don't think our room had been cleaned. The carpet was coveted in bits and the bathroom was decidedly hairy! Come on Acorns, you're great value for money but cleanliness comes first.

The lady that normally turns over the rooms was on holiday for the first part of August, unfortunately her replacement was not really up to scratch. Needless to say we will not be using her again, as we have had 2 comments like this for the period when she was away. We sincerely apologise for this, and we know where... More

Stayed here for one night before flying out to Budapest and leaving our hire car at airport, so did not need the shuttle bus. If you look for 'Old Farm' it is very easy to find. Managed to park right outside the front door! No problem paying in cash. It must mean they are able to keep costs to a... More

Very quiet considering right next to airport. Only noise was from some girls who were laughing loudly who may have been on their way to a hen weekend (or week) abroad but at... More

A great little place, home from home! We stopped over for one night before we flew out. Very spacious rooms, lovely bed which is a real treat, huge TV, everything you need including a small packed breakfast. Surprisingly quiet bearing in mind it is within sight of the airport. Very pretty surroundings with good security. Would have left the car... More

We were extremely disappointed in this guest house. After reading previous reviews and looking at website; we didn't expect five star accommodation but we did expect it to be clean. The carpets were not vacuumed, urine on the toilet seat when we arrived. Did not get a chance to report this as the man who checked us in disappeared soon... More

I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay, i was a little shocked by the comments, usually people are quite complementary on our cleanliness and quality of furnishings etc. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, we can only base things on the comments that we generally receive across the board, and they are normally quite good.

We stayed here in two rooms as a party of 5 for before an early morning flight arriving the night before at around 10pm. We had to pay in cash which is unusual. We had a comfortable bed, large TV and bathroom ok. Staff friendly enough. 'Breakfast' pack was an apple, juice carton and snack bar but ok as a... More
