Apparently, Trip Advisor reviews are frequently individuals' matters of opinion, seemingly from those with a perceived grudge against the service provider.

They are not mandatory laws forcing closure of the offending institution.

It is a really awful hotel & I can't understand those who give it a good rating. I guess as long as they are getting customers through the door it will stay as it is. I stayed there because I needed somewhere for overnight before a flight & got a good deal on the hotel & parking, which I suppose is what brings people in. I wouldn't stay there again. The car park next door appears to have closed now.

Presumably it will carry on as long as its making money, and the only way that TA can close it down is by more and more people refusing to use the hotel after reading reviews and discussions on here. As it is still open, that obviously hasn't happened.

TA is not as powerful as many business owners seem to believe!

Living only an hour away,I have never had the fortune (or misfortune??) to stay here, but what strikes me as a one off here, is that except for a few people who enjoyed their stay, most reviewers seem to be singing off the same hymn sheet, however,as long as the paying punters come through the door, the owners would not be that fussed about Trip Adviser, possibly even happy it is getting free publicity???

Quite possible, dozydai. I have never used it either, nor am I likely to, but it does illustrate that either there aren't as many people using this site as many think, or that people just decide to stay there anyway, despite the negative comments!

Think the car parking is a draw also

That is why I stayed there, because I had a nights stay plus parking at the sky parks next door, & shuttle bus to the airport. Can't remember what I paid, but it seemed reasonable. I did read the reviews prior to going, some good, some bad ( not as many bad ones as there are now) & thought it would be ok just for one night. One of the bad points was that the contents of a previous occupants nasal passages were smeared down the inside of the curtain. Grim

I'll keep that in mind next time lol ! Although on my next trip I used the Holiday Inn, much better & their pick up service is quicker.
