This is a perfectly nice Holiday Inn hotel. Brilliantly positioned for the airport. However, what lifts it to the exceptional level are the staff. They were uniformly polite, helpful and fun. We really cannot fault it

Restaurant full so had not very impressive meal in the bar. Good views from the top across the airport. Good service from...

Staff were very friendly and the Hotel is such a good location for the Airport. Great restaurant and coffee shop. The only downside was that...
