“Extremely handy for the airport”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

We stayed there for a night before flying out early next morning. We found a great deal on line separately for hotel and car parking (ncp). The hotel is easy to get to and opposite the terminal for departures. Very friendly staff and comfy beds despite having 4people in one room. The rooms were clean and looked good, some simple cosmetics to make it look more modern, but not as good as travel lodge! The drinks at the bar were very expensive (£15 for a large red wine and a bottle of beer) would use it again :)

Stayed here for few hours as we had an early flight (had to check-in at 4 a.m), very convenient as literally across the road from departures. Our first room was dirty - mess on the floor and the bin was over flowing, we reported to reception and they moved us to another room - and gave us a voucher for a free drink at the bar (ie ONE free drink, although there were 2 of us in the room!). We ate at the airport (because we wanted Frankie & Benny's) but the hotel menu seemed to offer lots of choice and reasonable prices. Very comfy bed and no noise from the airport despite having a room which overlooked departures. However.....Before we went to bed we settled the bill so that we could just leave the next morning and not get held up, while the staff member was dealing with us she also answered the telephone and dealt with that call. We thought this was rude and she didn't even flinch when we said rather sarcastically "2 words....trip advisor". Not impressed by the service but probably would stay here purely for the convenience factor - if you were making anything more of the stay there are other hotels not that much further away i'm afraid.

This hotel is used by us when travelling on early morning flights to the USA. It is a very short walk (less than 100 yards) to the Airport Departures and a nice early breakfast is provided in the reataurant for people such as us. The standard of comfort, décor and space, is what you expect from Novotel, i.e. 3-4 star level. The staff are very helpful clearly being aware of the needs of people with lots of luggage (our trips are often for a month or more) and unsocial times of departure. The sound-proofing is good so one is not kept awake by the nearby take-offs and landings.

Room Tip: So far all rooms we've stayed in here have been fine.
See more room tips
Green Features: It seems to be moderately concerned about being 'green' - towel re-use, low energy bulbs etc.

Stayed here for the night after landing late one night. The hotel was having work done which was not explained to us at time of booking. Corridors leading to rooms are tired and smell strongly of chemicals. We stayed in room 518 which was extremely overpriced the standard of room. Wood chip wall paper covered in marks and scrapes which had been repaired many times. Fittings were all poor with paint and plaster peeling around them. Odd set up with the bathroom. Toilet in it's own tiny room with a door, next to it is the bathroom with a shower and sink which was average at best with a door and then there's another door closing that off from the actually bedroom. We planned to go to the gym in the morning however it was literally a box room with two bike machines and 3 other weight machines which to call that a gym is a joke to me, they may as well not have one at all. I think the security of this hotel is something that needs addressing also, my partner went in to the hotel first to drop our suitcase off and simply said we had a room booked later that day, she didn't ask any details to confirm our booking or room number, simply wrapped a tag around the case with a number on and that was it. Do not recommend and would not stay again. Ibis hotel next door was more modern and cheaper.

Early morning flight therefore, despite only living 20 miles away, trains don't run that early in the morning, and the cost of the hotel is less than airport parking. Excellent standard and comfort of rooms and only 4 minutes walk from the check in desks.Recommend that you eat at the hotel as we didn't, thinking that the airport outlets would be cheaper. They weren't and the food was of poor quality.

Hotel is literally arose the road from the airport, great as it means you can grab a few extra minutes asleep and still make the gate on time!
Hotel was very clean and the staff extremely pleasant and helpful on arrival and checkout. I didn't make use of any of the amenities as a late check in very early check out.

My room was facing the airport, no aircraft noise and it was quite spacious for a double bed room

We stayed here for a one night stopover while driving from the south to the north of England. The hotel is easy to find, and the family rooms were of a good size for 4 people, with a double bed and double pull out couch. The service was excellent. Parking is located across the road in the airport car parks, and you get a discount for staying at the hotel, although it is still a touch expensive for overnight parking.
