First of all I have to confess that I am not a big fan of airport hotels, I find them a conveyor belt of humanitism that lack the personal touch of other hotels. This hotel is no better and no worse than other airport hotels!
After a poor check in, because TWO of my credit cards were declined, we were pleased to be allocated a room on the grond floor which ,means only half a dozen steps. To access other rooms, you need to climb several steep steps, and there is no lift in the hotel, which I would think should be a pre-requisite for an airport hotel.
The room was quite small, and even though it was described as a "double" it was in fact two singles pushed together. This combined with the settee, meant that there was no room for any bedside cabinets....a minor inconvenience. The view from the room was over parklands and quite nice. I'm not sure if the walls are paper thin, or if it was the adjoining door, but we could hear everything from the room next door, even the sound of a suitcase zipping up (I think/hope it was a suitcase!) This woke us up at about 05:30.
Breakfast provided a good selection, but the cooked food was only warm at best. We were however quite late for breakfast, despite the 05:30 wake up call!
We did not use the health facilities nor the airport transfer.
Our choice of this hotel is based on an excellent pub, the Honey Bee just 5 minutes up the road, the menu is wide and varied and the food is excellent!
