My husband and I booked a double room on 14th May for an overnight stay before our flight to Africa the next day. When we arrived, there was only one available parking space in the car park and it was next to the exit. We watched lots of people having difficulty finding spaces and people who's vehicles were jammed in due to the building workers on site who had parked their vans inappropriately. Part of the car park had been taken over by portacabins being used by the builders who were part of the refurbishment team. There were no disabled parking spaces that we could see within the hotel grounds which would have been helpful as my husband has had two knee replacements and carries a blue disabled parking badge so we had to carry all our luggage from the furthest part of the car park to the front of the hotel. The check-in was fine but the room was small, not a problem for one night but when we looked out the window in the morning there was scaffolding at the side of our window and it was easy for the workmen to see in. The bed which was supposed to be a double was actually two single beds together (they offered us a smoking room at check-in which we refused because it had single beds), and I spent all night trying to keep away from the centre of the bed in case I fell between them. We had dinner in the restaurant and ours was nice although overpriced for what we got but there were lots of meals being sent back to the kitchen and some of the waiters seemed a little out of their depth. The hotel is a mess at the moment and the prices should reflect this but they don't. We would have had a better meal, and a good night's sleep at the Premiere Inn for less than half the price. I wouldn't recommend this hotel, in It's present state, to anyone other than for business. It's only good point at the present time is the covered walkway to Terminal 2 and the service in the viewing bar. would have been nice to know about the refurbishment before we booked!!!!!!!!
