In 2012 I used this hotel as an overnight in between flights and thought it absolutely perfect. There was an affordable, regular bus service from the airport straight to it and back, it has an excellent restaurant (a real bonus) and a gym, with a decent pool.
In 2013 however it has cancelled its regular, affordable shuttle bus service and this has been replaced by a taxi. It is half the price of an airport taxi, per person, but still twice the price of the shuttle bus and has to be booked in advance in either direction.
It irked me before that the WiFi wasn't free in the hotel and after paying £16 for a taxi from the airport, having discovered after an hour of waiting that the shuttle bus no longer existed, I was further annoyed to find that it wasn't even working.
The restaurant remains fantastic. The menu is enticing and it does deliver. Beautiful mussels this time.
The rooms are economical, modern and fit for purpose.
