First time stay at this hotel as I live fairly close to the airport but a very early flight made staying over the night before the sensible option.
Just a couple of minutes walk under cover from the train station, the reception area was quite busy on arrival but I was checked in after about 5 minutes wait. The receptionist was friendly and welcoming (and even followed me to the lift area when she realised she'd forgotten to tell me the hotel were supporting Earth Hour that evening).
I had one of the Scandinavian rooms, on the carpark side of the hotel but heard no noise from the carpark or road. Room was spacious and clean and no obvious signs of wear and tear as mentioned in some reviews, aside from an old easy chair that could do with some seat padding! There were proper sized mugs on the tea tray and plenty of hangers in the closet. I used my own hairdryer but the one in the room looked a decent one. Also available in the room was a iron/ironing board and trouser press.
Best of all was the very comfy bed with really nice feeling linen - it was a shame to have to be getting up so early!
The bathroom was also very clean, with some decent toiletries.
It was too early for breakfast when I checked out (4:45am) but a complimentary 'grab and go' was available in the lobby, with hot drinks, cereal bars and fruit. It took about ten minutes walk to T1 check in from the hotel.
Overall, a very good impression from a first stay and I would definitely consider staying here again, maybe arriving earlier next time to try out the pool and facilities.
