This hotel was an obvious choice on Expedia as a great deal in one of their sales. We chose it on this grounds and because of Tripadvisor reviews. I think we got what we paid for.
Like many others who have stayed, this hotel does feel quite dated. The lobby is a bit strange and the hotel is surrounded by the Sheraton and a busy road. The corridors are all painted in a rather old-fashioned way and they feel a bit like a student hall of residence. The balcony that runs alongside the rooms from one end of the hotel to the other making it ideal for children to run up and down. There is no double-glazing.
The rooms are reasonably well furnished. although the bathrooms need updating - especially the shower/bath: the drainage is slow so the shower quickly begins to feel like a bath!
The housekeeping was a bit slipshod too, with a lack of attention to detail.
But these negatives were balanced with the good location, the generous breakfast (but the breakfast room is a bit small and I wouldn't want to stay when it was full as the line for breakfast could be long) and the value and ease of parking a car.
We payed £76 + tax, which seemed fair for what we got. But I would have been disappointed to have been asked to pay more.
One other thing to note: there seem to be occasions when the area is on the flightpath to the airport.
