A great hotel. Nice rooms (we had a junior suite with 15 days parking included - £159). Had excellent room service and the bar area is nice and quiet. The shuttle bus runs frequently or on request. On arrival back at the airport, there is a courtesy phone in arrivals for the hotel - they advised us to go to... More

We enjoyed our stay. There were a few minor mistakes: Expedia didn't tell them we wanted a twin room and the shower was playing up. Other than that, it was very good. The hotel staff were excellent, from reception to the cleaners: In particular our waiter Tom was very affable and professional. A lovely break. Keep up the good work.

Ended up with a junior suite for this price including airport transfers. Hotel was excellent, the concierge picked us up within 5 minutes of calling from the courtesy phone at the airport and dropped us directly... More

The hotel has plenty of onsite parking and it costs £5/night for guests. There are various park'n'fly options available for those wanting... More

I've stayed here once and would come back if I need to stay in the area. As it's a new hotel, everything was nice, the rooms were super and swimming pool ideal (15m). No noise from the airport. Breakfast was pleasant.
