We stayed here for 1 night on 19 Dec 2014 and liked the location (easy 10 minute walk from the terminal) and the general facilities and cleanliness. What was a letdown though was our experience with the lady manning the reception counter the following morning. She was clearly more interested in whatever she was doing on her computer and not...

Staff very helpful and agreeable, room clean and adequate. Only down side was noisy children in an adjacent room which is not under the control of the hotel. Ace location for airport walking distance.

This "Buget Hotel" was not a budget price! 111.05 pounds for just putting our heads down in the depressing Remand Centre style room. In fact they probably have a better one in there.We didn't have any breakfast or use any facilities other than what was in the room as we had arrived on a late flight, put out heads down... More

Got here around 11pm after a flight from London so I was pretty tired. Even so, the continuous drone in my room managed to keep me awake, even with earplugs. Still, I'd unpacked and had no energy to ask them to move me to another room, especially (for all I know) the sound could have been outside. Eventually (around 6am)... More

The cheapest hotel in easy reach of the airport, it's located an easy 5 - 10 minute walk from the terminal. I've stayed here a few times. It seems a little older than some of the other Ibis Budget hotels but the facilities are fine. There are fast food restaurants nearby and at the airport itself. Reception isn't 24 hrs,... More

Small rooms with tiny bathrooms but clean. Bed was comfortable enough. Easy walk to airport with plenty of signs. Having no elevator when have heavy suitcase and room on 3rd floor is a bit of drag but you get what you pay for. Would stay again.

Hotel is very well sign posted from international arrivals area ... easy to follow even at 1 am ! Was surprised that reception was still open ... we didn't expect that so late at night ... a nice touch. Good value ... very comfy bed ... smallish room but don't need much more for an overnight/in transit type stay. Would... More
