I think people are confused about this hotel - there are two City Lodges - one is literally attached to the airport which we tried to get in to but it was full so they referred us to this one which is about 10 mins drive by taxi (or you can get a shuttle from the airport). We found the rooms to be comfortable - nice soft pillows!!! Shower was great - had good pressure and decent sized cubicle. Coffee and tea in the room but no fridge, water or anything else. Breakfast was not the best I have had but it certainly was perfectly adequate with a good range of continental and cooked stuff.
The only downsides I would say about this hotel is that when next door room people shower, it is quite noisy in your room - but I would only use this hotel as a stopover or for business so usually you would be awake pretty early anyway. the other thing that annoyed me was that room service were knocking on our door at about 8am to clean the room - we couldn't find a Do not Disturb sign in the room and after a very late night, did not appreciate being woken unnecessarily.
Rates are very reasonable compared to other hotels so close to the airport.
