If you are an art-deco fan then this would be a delight for you, if not then you should still enjoy a stay here.
The rooms are fine, clean and large enough (but see the pulsing water comment in another review - in my case it pulsed cold). The restaurant is o.k. for this class of hotel but will not win any awards. Please, sausages should not be served burnt at a breakfast buffet.
The staff are very friendly (perhaps a little too so at time - "my darling" is not a standard greeting is it?) but seem to be fairly few in number and having to work very hard, which they do.
The hotel's proximity to the airfield is obviously a selling point but being out of town in an industrial estate is not.
A warning in the room that newspapers cannot be ordered at the weekend and menus still advertsiing their Christmas menu in May shows a lack of effort and attention to detail. How often does it change its menu?
Could do better possibly - but at the price you could do a lot worse.
