This is a very nice hotel, I managed to get a room overlooking the airport and the runway. It is a quiet airport and didn't hear any of the planes during the night as very well soundproofed. The staff are lovely and friendly and the hotel is very clean and fresh. The bar and restaurant is on the 5th floor... More

Me and my partner stayed here for our 7 year anniversary. I am staff with the IHG group so my expectations were very high from the get go. From entering the hotel until we departed staff just couldn't do enough for us ! The lovely young lady on reception checked us in and out, and she was an absolute credit... More

We stayed here for one night as we were attending a wedding nearby. The staff did everything they could to let us check in early so we could change and were polite and helpful. The car park is safe. The room is spacious and very well designed with everything you need from ample sockets, mirrors, storage, tea/coffee making facilities, safe,... More

The bathroom was lovely. All basic facilities were provided. The room was allocated to meet our requirements which included that it should be on... More

Friendly helpful staff and super restaurant. We stayed in a superior room, fabulous; large bed, windows giving views of the airport and a huge bathroom. The only problem is the the restaurant which is directly above this room and when doing the soundproofing against aircraft noise (which is excellent by the way) they completely forgot about the hard floor in...

We visited this hotel as a last minute booking. We had an executive suite which was spacious and modern with safe and fridge and huge comfy bed! The staff were friendly and informative. There is a charge of £7.50 for parking but you can come and go as much as you want by getting your ticket stamped at reception. Although... More

Worst service ever and terrible attitude. Checked in, tired and wanted to sleep. Got to my room to have a bath and order some food. 10 minutes later and having to pay cash for the food and check exactly what money I was going to pay with and go through a 10 minute ordering process to order cheese and biscuits,...

A one-night stay here. Good modern hotel with an excellent restaurant. Helpful and well trained staff. The restaurant overlooks the main runway and hard-standing of the airport and is only 5 minutes walk away. The hotel staff managed to give my luggage away (when on deposit for a day trip) which was a nuisance. I eventually tracked my own bag... More
