Stayed here over a weekend as the kick off point for a long business trip in the US, (over for the UK). It is conveniently located near enough to the airport and on the way to my first meeting.
The team are very welcoming and couldn't do enough for me during my stay. Jonathan on front desk was always on hand to assist with a query or indeed give directions to the local beach - it was warm and sunny on Sunday afternoon so it was an obvious place for me to go. The cleaning team do a great job too.
My room was large with plenty of space around the fixtures and everything worked.
Breakfast was good with cereal, pastries, eggs, bacon and so on, but for me the "make your own waffle stand" was a hoot. I had one on both mornings with breakfast syrup of course - don't get these machines in UK hotels. Coffee and juice are available 24/7. The car park is huge and parking is free. There is an Italian restaurant, Bella's, across the road. This is a good place to eat but I did find it a bit Jekyll and Hyde across the two days I ate there. See my review of that elsewhere on Tripadvisor folks.
This hotel is exactly what I wanted on the first leg of my trip. It had everything I wanted, was close to the airport, was clean and tidy.
