Stayed here on a deal including parking with airparks. Be warned airparks is a long way out.
Arrived and used the the auto check in as the reception staff where busy. Would recommend using this as its a lot quicker.
Rooms are ok and clean but would say Premier inn are better and comfier beds. But you do get a free safe to use. Rooms are quiet even though next to the airport.
Had a few drinks in the bar and decided to eat in there too. Food was fairly good. Burgers where very good. After spending the evening in there with food and drinks and a early flight in the morning I went to pay the bill. This was the main disappointment of the hotel! My card was refused, we had witnessed this at a few tables sat near us. Tried another card same again! The bar manager was very apologetic, it starts to worry you then. We where travelling the next day and did not want cards blocking!
The bar manager with apologies took me to the restaurant to use there machine and then left me with the manager there. Tried again, refused again. Tried the second card and same again but along with a smug remark from the manager "huh! refused too" with a shrug of his shoulders. So very annoying after spending nearly £100 on food and drink.
My partner used her card, same account and guess what it worked, but once again a smug shrug of the shoulders from the manager, handing back the card and saying nothing. Not even a thank you!
Good location. Not to bad a room for our short stay. Maybe we might use again if certain attitudes change as that can spoil a visit.
