so this place is £50 a night including breakfast - so my hopes were not that high and they were met. This strikes me as somewhere that was once a really nice place 20 years ago but just isnt getting the income to keep it that way - its in need of some TLC which is a shame becasue the staff are great.
the staff are lovely and very helpful.
big new TV in the room
The airport doesnt seem to have any flights so no worry about the noise
it as a quiet hotel - (i think i only saw 1 other person!) - i guess in summer when there are more flights this would be different.
they have 'dog friendly rooms' - which was good as we travels with someone with a dog - they were happy for the dog in the bar as well (althoguh there was noone else, even staff in the bar)
lots of history - this place was once the RAF officers mess
its shabby - holes in the walls and furniture, everything looks tierd and in need of TLC
the glasses in the bathroom were filthy and there was some stains on the decor
the shower curtain STUNK - i dont think it had EVER been cleaned
the shower was the most pathetic dribble ever.
breakfast was served 7-9.30am - we came at 9am but breakfast had obviously been sitting there since 7am as it was dryed up and the tea was cold - the staff did get us a fresh pot of tea though so that was good - shame becasue i think 2 hours earlier it would have been nice breakfast. it was so quiet it seems silly doing a buffet - cooked to order would have been better and no doubt more cost effective.
if you are looking for somewhere to put your head down for a night before an early flight then this place would do the job, but if you are looking for anything more I'm afraid that until this place is renovated then dont expect too much, but do remember its only £50 so what do you expect!
