We cleared customs at Blagnac Airport at around 22.30hrs and were enjoying a drink in the hotel bar by 23.00hrs. The shuttle 'on demand' bus, via a telephone link in the arrivals hall, was quick and efficient.
Check-in/out was seamless and conducted in a professional and friendly manner. This is a recently built hotel. The spotlessly clean and quiet room was very well appointed with quality furnishings; the WiFi reception was good.
There was a good breakfast choice. In addition to a wide ranging cold buffet a few hot items were also available ie eggs, bacon etc. However, it was not immediately apparent that hot food was on the menu due to lack of signage and the Ban Maries being sited away from the main food island. It was only when a subsequent guest arrived and went to the hot food counter that we, and other guests, realised that these hot items were available.
This Holiday Inn Express is a quality operation. It is new, fresh, friendly and just by the airport with easy access to the local and regional Autoroute network.
Overall, a brief but enjoyable stop-over that was excellent value for money.
NB Although the main purpose of our visit was to go on and stay with family we firstly went on a tour of the Airbus manufacturing plant. For those interested in aviation, Airbus operate several tours. We chose the A380 tour which was a most interesting, informative and pleasant experience. Tours start at €14 per person and are conducted in either French or English see www.taxiway.fr
