The only thing I found positive about this hotel was the free parking and I think this was because the barrier was faulty. Very well past its sell by date, rooms very old fashioned, basic and small. The bar on a night was on par with top London prices - why? Even last minute this wasn't cheap was expecting much... More

The hotel looked good on first impression. but then it went down hill. On checking in the lady on the desk told me the wrong room number, and wrote it on the card. So I had... More

We booked this at the last minute and when we arrived were given a free upgrade the young man on reception was very polite he checked us in quickly but still had time to tell us everything about the hotel.

Me and my young son stayed here before our 5 am flight to avoid all the roadworks in the early hours. Hotel was lovely, reception was friendly telling us where to park for longer stay. probably 5 to 10 mins walk to the terminal which was fine. Made our early flight a lot more relaxed to have stayed overnight. Would... More

This was a great hotel for staying the night before a flight. Very ideally placed for walking to the airport. Parking safe, rooms ideal for one night. Would stay here again prior to travel. Would recommend................................

Nothing was too much or a problem. Upgraded to a larger room at no extra cost. It was an absolute pleasure to stay at this hotel. Great position for the... More
