I did not check out these reviews before we booked at this hotel for the night in late July 2004 - if I had, we wouldn't have stayed there!!
Thankfully our experience was not as bad as some others reported here. However, the hotel is in need of a re-vamp - it's all a bit dated and tired. We paid a last minute rate of about 60 pounds, which was supposedly about 125 pounds saving off the usual rate. But I would not pay more than 60 for a room here - that's all it is worth.
The room and bathroom are small but were clean. Tea and coffee making facilities were a bonus. We too did not eat in the hotel - preferring to save our cash (if not our figures) by eating at nearby McDonalds.
For the right price and provided your expectations are not too high - this place is okay for a bed for the night at what it is - an AIRPORT hotel.
