Id found this Hotel online about a month ago, but the prices were out of our league, but was lucky enough to get a deal on this occasion. Even though I had seen all the photos online, as we approached the Hotel, it really is something. I love architecture, old and new and this is striking. Fantastic clean lines. Great car parking and plenty of disabled parking, two of my party are disabled.
Although the Hotel doesnt advertise specially "accessible" rooms, the bathroom facilities with walk in showers and handrails and large rooms made this totally suitable for my companions.
Staff were extremely friendly and helpful on our arrival. Our rooms, we chose the next up from standard, to ensure views of the airfield, were beautifully appointed, very stylish and just an understated luxuriousness to them, beige leather finish to a desk and seat, how unusual.
The view over the airfield is very interesting, big picture windows, lovely blinds and very efficient sound proofing, you dont easily hear the planes landing and taking off.
Our budget didnt allow for us to dine at the Hotel but we enjoyed a drink in the bar as we arrived. I looked into the dining room and it looks gorgeous,
The public area design is as the photos all show, architecturally beautiful. One of the loveliest hotels I have stayed in...shame I have to share the secret. I hope very much to return.
