3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

We booked this hotel as had an early flight next morning. It is so convenient for flights and trains and makes early starts more bearable! The hotel is clearly well sound-proofed too, as no real noise disturbance. Overall the room was good and value for money (we paid in advance on a 'no cancellation' basis) BUT the fact that it was laid out for four people meant the main bed was pushed to the wall, to leave space for the 2 fold-out beds. This arrangement was okay for 2 nimble adults, but if 4 adults had the room it would be a challenge to move around (or exit in an emergency).

Room Tip: Try for a room that isn't over furnished!

We checked in late Sunday 27th and paid £100.90 including breakfast which was a very good buffet.We were quoted £99 room only for further nights and advised the rate could go up or down depending on occupancy !.There was a problem with the toilet not flushing in room 401 which we pointed out in the morning on checking out.On checking our bank statement night of 30th found the hotel had charged us twice.We was told on visiting the hotel on the day of our return flight 31st it is the norm to charge a pre authorisation on a credit card and return up to ten working days after.

I stayed here whist between flights and enjoyed my stay. It has a nice bar and good sized rooms. I had a quick bite to eat here and that was good too - try the club sandwich! I was also surprised at how quiet the hotel was as the area is a bit hectic at time. Worth a stay.

We stayed overnight before a flight.

2 adults, 1 baby.

Reception was very clean, check in was quick and efficient. You do only get 10 minutes free drop off time in front of the hotel (there isn't any parking) and after that it is charged at £1 per 10mins!! We parked in the long stay car park which is approx. a 5 min walk from hotel.

Room was clean and adequate for an overnight stay, travel cot provided was of a good standard. Only thing I disliked was that the toilet was separate to the bathroom and was very small.

We ate in the restaurant had sandwiches and soup was nice but pricey, kids menu has a good selection but you have to order all 3 courses not just 1 thing which is expensive when they aren't going to eat it all.

Buffet breakfast was good both English and Continental on offer.

Check out was quick and it was a 1 minute walk to the airport.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the airport but despite this I didn't hear a single plane.
