My wife and I stayed here for one night on a Groupon deal, which included b&b, 8 days parking, complimentary bottle of wine with dinner (which we forgot to redeem) and transport to and from the airport. After reading the reviews on here, I worried that the 50 quid deal was perhaps not such a good deal! We arrived mid afternoon and fortunately check in was without incident. Our room was ground floor and very small, with an ancient TV squashed into the corner. Remote control had no batteries but not really a problem as I could switch channels with my big toe whilst laying on the bed. The bathroom was compact but adequate for an overnight stay. Room was clean. We paid in advance for the evening dinner, £7.50 each for 3 courses, which was good value. Free coffee and tea was provided after though we only stumbled across this as we meandered our way into an adjoining room. The following morning, breakfast was OK, but check out was performed by a disinterested tattooed lad whose customer service skills would benefit from some extra training. I was impressed with the taxi shuttle service to the airport, which we shared with another couple. Upon our return after our holiday, the booking of our taxi went smoothly and I was relieved to find my car still parked and unscathed in the intensely packed hotel car park. On balance, the hotel was better than expected, but I would only stay here again if the deal was similar to that I had via Groupon.
