My wife and I stayed here so we could just get up and go straight to the airport the next day. The staff were great especially Darren who Just about every firm in the world would want him working for them. You can't fake enthusiasm like his. My only disappointment was the hidden £4.00 fee for parking which wasn't mentioned...

On one level this is a pretty utilitarian place. However the staff are so friendly and personable that a prosaic stay before an early flight was a real pleasure. Food excellent too. Very reasonable price, and can sort parking for you too. Kids loved wifi access too.

Used prior to an early morning flight. Easy to find, friendly check in. Room quiet even though on main road, clean and comfortable but basic. Bathroom and shower fine. Breakfast quite disgusting - cheap and nasty not worth bothering.

Lots of airport hotels to chose from at ema but I'd recommend this one on price and lovely service. Well dressed, polite and smiling staff make a long business stay bearable! Book with confidence. Good location on bus route for terminal but you could throw a cricket ball from here. Noisy? No.

This is a thank you to the lovely staff who looked after us while we waited for the RAC with our sick car. They were helpful and kind. So next time we go on holiday we may stay here so we do not have such a drive home. The food was good and it all looked very clean.
