I arrived at the airport at 19.30 and needed to be back at the airport at 17.00 the following day. Travelling alone, with a general transport strike, what on earth can you do at the airport with 20 hours to kill? Well, if you like keeping fit and relaxing, stay at the Holiday Inn! The shuttle bus took me to the hotel and because I had eaten earlier I went straight to my room without dinner in the restaurant. The room was a good size, clean and comfortable and Oh joy, there was a kettle and tea and coffee, so I was happy. I do admit to eating the crisps from the mini-bar!
The next day, I spent the morning in the gym, swimming pool and sauna, relaxing in my room and finally leaving around 14.30. The delightful front of house staff had offered me a late check-out when I explained my situation. The only mistake was that I ate a rather revolting salad at the airport whereas I should have eaten at the hotel restaurant before I left.
So, to recap - I did not eat at the hotel at all so cannot comment on the food/room service but the front-of-house staff were excellent and the gym facilities super.
