Hotel was under 10 minutes walk from the airport. Set in a bit of a hollow there was very little aircraft noise. Large car park that usually costs 5 per night but we booked this hotel with car parking for 8 nights that we thought was good value. The room was very modern and fresh looking the bed was large and comfortable. The hotel was a cut above the most airport hotels we have stayed at. However when we returned to pick our car up the car park and surrounding grassed areas had about 50 more cars on them than there were car parking spaces it was chaos.
The Sherwood Restaurant
As we expected the food was not cheap in a hotel this close to an airport, however the food was first class and well worth the money. Service was good my only grumble was that one of the dishes we had was one price on the menu and was dearer on the bill. It could have been a genuine mistake but it may be something to be aware of. All in all it was a lovely meal in pleasant surroundings. The same food at the same price is served in the bar as served in the restaurant but the restaurant is much nicer.
