Having spent the night of the 9th October at this hotel, my first impressions on arrival were overall positive. The entrance was hardly lit and suggested at first glance that it was closed. Once inside, the reception was found around the corner and the place opened out into a pleasant check in area with a bar and restaurant nearby.
The lifts looked a bit dated and slightly worn whilst the corridor leading to our room was showing signs of wear and tear from years of use. The room was smart though and the HD television was a bonus. WIFI was available free of charge for two hours but if you wanted it for longer, it was a substantial fee to pay thereafter. I would criticise the location of the hotel as every twenty minutes a low flying plane would pass over and shake the room. The colossal roar of the engines was not appreciated either. There are double glazing windows which eases the noise slightly but on a warm night, it got a bit awkward.
The restaurant was located in the hotel dining room and it was fantastic. The menu was very reasonably priced and the food was great too. Having been in a tour group which descended on the waitress all at once, the waiting time was a slight issue but well handled on reflection. The staff serving were all Anglophones so ordering in English was not a problem.
The bar area was pleasant and the drinks were reasonable as well. Breakfast the next morning was self service and was a mixed continental and fried breakfast. It was well received by all.
I would recommend this hotel for those on a transfer to a plane. It is not recommended for city travel since it is miles away from the centre and prone to major traffic issues around five in the evening. I would criticise the value of the wifi and question the decor of the corridors leading to the room but otherwise it's a good place to rest for a stopover.
