Excellent, very close to the airport. Comfortable beds, clean, good value. Will certainly use again. Remember the hotel is owned by the airport and managed by Holiday Inn therefore remember to add £7.50 per night parking charge to your cost if applicable. Decent breakfast English and continental. Dinner very reasonable and good quality.

When I reported the issue I was told it was throughout the hotel as the boilers stopped working. I was very understanding as these boilers are on 24/7 365 days a...

Overall a nice hotel, room good and baby crib very good too. Breakfast was very nice with lots of choice: Only thing I didn't like was: after paying around £100 for the room for one night I also had to pay an extra £7.50 to park in the hotel car park!?!? I feel this should have been included in the...
