Now this hotel is getting a badly needed refurb but my review is for now and not what may be in the future.
Reception efficient, bus driver and service great. Location to airport great and I suspect this would be the main/only reason most people use this hotel, simply an overnighter before early flight or late arrival.
Maccas is a 5 min walk away which is good, but current roadworks send you on a bit of an extra trek.
Now the room.. Too dear for what it is, and definitely charging because of the airport location. Old, people smoking somewhere which drifted into the room, a heater which was difficult to turn completely off on a warm night, no a/c, the most archaic tv ever..why not put flat screens in? They can go into the new rooms and would help these sad rooms a tad in the meantime.
Bathroom old, toilet in weird place but hot water and pressure was good. Bit smelly with oldness.
Orange bedspreads..yuk, pillows lumpy sad little things, saggy bed.
Restaurant for dinner was very busy, main meals very nice but no service after for sweets or coffee, simply forgotten. Our amusement was the couple who sent the steak back 4 times to try and get it to somewhere more than mooing..poor souls gave up in the end, as each time the steak came back cut from 2 initial nice looking fillets to basically cubes..
So would I stay here again? Not until the total refurb has been done, but somehow I suspect the price will skyrocket, as it's dear enough now for such a basic offering.
