Stayed here (again) on business for 1 night, and booked, then cancelled then tried to rebook but the rates had gone up. Spoke to the hotel and they reinstated the booking at the old rate.
Arrived, found a space in the large car park and checked in. Cookie received (felt a BIT past it's best) and as it was a late change of booking got a standard room, free drink voucher, free breakfast voucher and free internet access code.
Within a couple of minutes of getting to my room, my free water, robe, slippers and upgraded toiletries were delivered to my room by a very polite lady from housekeeping.
Went to the bar and was disappointed to find no hand pumped beers (again) but had a quick drink and into Fratelli's restaurant. Had a VERY good Italian meal, the waitress was at the top of her game, attentive and pleasant, but not overbearing in any way. The food was superb, complimentary olives and bread, Bruschetta started and baked cod for main. Excellent, and not expensive.
A good night's sleep and down for a good cooked breakfast, with a wide range of hot and cold options, juices etc.
All in all a very good stay, this hotel might be a few pounds more then the newly opened budget hotels at the airport, but as the saying goes, you get what you pay for.
