After staying here on and off for the last 8 years before going offshore I am pleased to say that some of the old issues are starting to change - but some remain the same
Being primarily used for offshore workers expect to see a lot of them about.
The staff on reception are generally very friendly and you never seem to need to wait long to be seen to.
The restaurant just off of reception has never been a strong point for me. Staff are very detached, slow and the place is fairly small. Food is fantastically overpriced for what it is.
By total contrast food from the restaurant at the rear of reception is the total opposite. Staff are friendly, bright and the food - while still fairly expensive - has always been of good quality.
Location is probably best for those using the heliports, airport and nearby business areas. There's not much else to do locally within walking distance. Fairly recently a large ASDA superstore has been built but it is still a good 10 min hike away.
Expect to be woken very early in the morning by airport noise and people leaving hotel / cleaners. Rooms are not soundproofed at all it seems, the huge gap under the door to the outside world won't help that much.
Rooms seem to be very hit or miss. Some are clean and comfortable, others seem to be straight from the 80's and with a mattress made from local granite. If you're lucky you might end up in one of the "vip rooms" to the right of reception - where rooms and standards are like a whole different hotel! I've only been lucky enough to stay there once, probably by accident.
Another positive is the courtesy buses to the heliport, but be there early they fill up fast.
Luckily my company has always picked up the tab to stay here, I doubt I would pay for it out of my own pocket.
