Comfortable hotel close to the airport, for transit passengers, as I am when I use it, but still far enough away, even when you can see the planes. Staff are friendly and efficient and always there to assist.
The shuttle service to and from the hotel every 30mins, makes waiting at either the airport or the hotel easy and drivers are all friendly.
The bar and restaurant are a talking point of their own, what with bar stools made of air craft tyres piled up. There are air craft bits on crates all adding to the vibe.
I will be back.
