We stayed here the night before a flight. The hotel served its purpose in that we had a bed to sleep for the night. The staff were friendly when we arrived however the atmosphere in the common area felt a little run down. We had a non-smoking room however it still smelt like smoke. The shower head was really short...

This is not the Ritz. But neither is it the hellhole you might expect from some reviewers. I have stayed here several times, either side of transAtlantic flights. A huge plus is the car parking deal which saves you money over airport parking and gives you effectively a free night's stay. The staff are friendly, and go the extra mile....

We have stayed at this hotel several times and found it reasonable. The rooms vary in price and we always paid a bit extra for a superior room. The hotel is used by a large % of business/workmen and caters for this type of business. The bar and restaurant are reasonable and there is room service available. The staff are...

First off let's start with positives..the staff were pleasant and polite, particularly in the restaurant. My room appeared reasonably clean but I didn't dare check the mattress just in case, sometimes ignorance is bliss. Location was convenient for me and easy to get to. On the outside the hotel looks like a run down council block, I quite like brutalist...

Let me start with The good points of this establishment, there is one brilliant receptionist called Chris who is a credit to the hotel he didn't check us in but he was extremely helpful cheery and full of enthusiasm. The only other good point is the bar staff all the bar staff deliver extremely good customer service and remember who...

Like the sister hotel in the city centre this one is ready for a proper refurbishment but for a cheap stay close to the airport it did the trick. The shower worked the toilet flushed intermittently the bed was ok. You got what you paid for and there was plenty of parking. If you're looking for quality and prestige look...

Have stayed here numerous times but the latest was a great disappointment. Not only did the corridor stink of weed but also the advertised 24 hour room service menu apparently finishes at 11pm. Is it that hard to make a sandwich?
