We booked this hotel to stay in the night we arrived from the U.S. We arrived on an overnight flight at 7 am and by the time we got our rental car and arrived at the hotel, it was almost 9 am. We were informed that we could not check in until 2:00 pm. They curtly informed us that if we paid 10 pounds extra, we could check in at noon. This being an airport hotel with people leaving for flights early, we practically begged them to let us check in when the room was ready, and they said the housekeepers would call them when the rooms were ready, but never lifted a finger to call and ask them to get a room ready soon. We waited until 11:45 am (3 hours) and they finally let us check in for the extra 10 pounds. Oh, and parking a car is also an extra 10 pounds per night. Want internet? Only an extra 10 pounds per night. The room was clean, and the bathroom was exceptionally nice for a hotel of this price. The beds were horribly uncomfortable. The one thing included for free was the breakfast, which was adequate at best. Watery food service eggs and undercooked English bacon and runny baked beans along with some bread items and cereals and pastries were the fare. I will not be staying at this hotel again. As a matter of fact we had pre-paid for a room here on our last night, but instead, left on an earlier flight and lost our money rather than stay here another night.
