My wife and I booked online for one night prior to our flight to Fuerteventura and also for one night on the return from our holiday a week later. The easily found hotel was welcoming from the minute you walked through the doors. The reception staff could not do enough for you, nothing was too much bother and every querie... More

This hotel is minutes from the airport and is a gem for an overnight stay. The staff very very friendly and helpful. Rooms were functional, clean and comfortable. Free wifi throughout the hotel. Breakfast is included starting at 4am for continental and cooked after 6.30am. The on-site Restaurant was good with a selection to suit most tastes. Recommended.

Excellent pillows in the room. Good shower. Good sized TV in the room. Polite staff working at the hotel. Hotel is very clean throughout, in all the spaces we used. Good buffet breakfast, with a range of foods. It would great if there was bacon too.

I've stayed in a few Holiday Inn Expresses now and this is pretty much standard, except that the staff here were better than the others! It might just be because I was there on a quiet night and they were extra attentive, but everyone was impressively helpful and polite. I was there quite late and they were happy for me... More

We stayed her on Christmas Eve and Christmas night due to a house fire and our usual hotel being closed for the Christmas break. We were made to feel very welcome, and nothing was too much trouble for the friendly staff. We were given a glass of milk to leave out for Father Christmas and very well looked after. On... More

Good, clean, basic airport hotel. Reception staff friendly & informative. Room basic but has everything you need. Bonus was the breakfast included in the price - good choice of food & drink and available from 4am if getting an early flight. Hotel is about 10 mins walk away from the airport, an easy walk but not too many people around... More

room was basic but just what we needed a comfy bed and a hot shower before our early morning flight. Food on the other hand wasn't great for the price paid. Id recommend eating before coming to the hotel. Nothing was fresh tasted all microwaved. Staff was ok not overly friendly. I would use again for an early morning flight... More
