Stayed at this hotel ready for an early morning flight with easyjet back to Manchester. It's a typical Holiday Inn express, nothing fancy. Room was fine, although the extra bed for our daughter was a bit uncomfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful, the hotel was clean.

The location of this hotel is fine, the staff were fine, the breakfast was pretty good. However, some of the other guests were far from fine..........we were kept awake by a number of them roaming around the corridors at 2am knocking on each other's doors and generally being extremely noisy.
