The hotel is a little old, but the staff are friendly for an airport hotel and the rooms were quite comfortable. Our family stayed in interconnecting rooms and we had ample space for our needs with the hotel room's manager coming and welcoming our group personally on arrive. The food in the restaurant was nice – my pork curry was spicy (as requested) and tasty – and the service was good. The gym is in an older type building, but it is well equipped and staffed by a person who knows their stuff and the pool area is OK.
Forget the spa. The ladies seem more interested in talking to their friends and trying to get you to pay for “additional services” that are certainly not going to appear on the Ramada's spa menu than actually giving you a good massage and the atmosphere for the price is just not worth it.
It is not the best hotel I have ever stayed at in terms of the look and atmosphere by any means, but it is very close to the airport and the transfers from the hotel were quick and easy on the hotel bus service.
Would I stay there long term, no way, but for short term stays as an airport hotel when you have an 8am flght or a late arrival it does the job.
