Stayed for 2 night during a recent conference. Everything as expected, vey clean, very efficient staff, good bedroom, comfortable bed & good shower. Breakfast offered good choice & 5th floor bar gives great views of the airport and decent range of drinks. Ideal for a business stay.

Attentive staff who were friendly but not too much.The meal was a Groupon 2 course. Starter we chose whitebait and also a chicken ceasar salad followed by roast lamb and roast chicken. Crispy roast potato and parsnip made it stand out from the usual.

Stayed 2 separate nights before and after our flights. The hotel was a perfect location for the airport; about 5 minutes walk. The hotel is located next to a retail park and McDonald's so very handy for fast food and last minute purchases.

Very convenient for airport, McDonalds close by. Nice, new build. Reception friendly on arrival. So far, hotel nice.

Room was spacious with quality amenities. Comfortable bed,great bathroom. Soundproofed rooms meant good nights sleep. Food in the restaurant was all good. Staff all very friendly and helpful.
