If the hotel management have been keeping an eye on comment made on Trip Advisor they have certainly paid attention. All the negative comments have been addressed and information and directions from Reception are 100%. There are instructions on the lights in the rooms, but they really aren't that complicated.
The room itself was very smart and well appointed with all the trimmings for a short stay. The restaurant was welcoming and staff very attentive but not hovering over you - just keeping an eye on you at a distance so when your glass needed topped up, it was done efficiently and effectively.
The walk from T5 is fairly short and certainly better than waiting on and then travelling on a coach transfer to another hotel.
We would thoroughly recommend this hotel if travelling to and from T5.
