I'm aircrew so have stayed in many hotels around the world over the years and unfortunately this one was a disappointment. The room and general ambiance is that of a decent business hotel however my biggest complaint is over the ridiculous internet prices - £16 for 24 hours access in your room is a disgrace - I pay less than that for a month at home. By contrast many other hotels frequently offer free wifi to aircrew or are in a BT Openzone hotspot enabling me to keep in touch with the family and access the web for free. Sadly this one has neither facility. I gather there are terminals in the business centre available but frankly after getting up at 4am for work when I get back to my room I want to chill out and relax not sit in the business centre all night trying to skype/email home!
Very disappointing and overpriced food too - burger, paid extra for side salad, rather ungenerous portion of chips, no coleslaw or other niceties and so about £17 for a burger and green salad - who are they trying to kid?? Sadly I have the misfortune to be staying there for another 5 nights again this week - but I will be suggesting an alternative to my company...
If there was a decent pub to eat at within walking distance I would eat there like a shot!
