I booked this hotel through Secret Escapes as a last minute treat for my partner who loves planes and was celebrating his last college exam. I went online to try and book a table in the restaurant to find there were no spaces but wasn't bothered too much as it was a last minute booking and I knew the place had a bar area with food. I was called by the hotel to ask if I wanted to be put on the reserve list for a table in the restaurant which I thought was a lovely idea but said it was ok. I arrived at the hotel which is very nice from the outside and even nicer inside. The staff were very friendly and our room was lovely overlooking the runway. There was a bit of an issue with the hotels network system which meant we were left without wifi or TV in the room for a few hours. It wasn't a big issue to be fair.... My partner and I then went downstairs around 7pm to get some food in the bar to be told that there were no seats free and that we could either sit outside the bar in the seats placed throughout the hotel or order room service. We decided to sit in the seating area outside the bar and were told that someone would come take our order. We sat 20mins without anyone appearing so decided to go back to our room and order room service. I ordered a few things off the menu including mussels and got a call 5mins later to say that they'd run out so opted for pasta instead. The food arrived and tasted very nice but I would've liked it better in the bar with a drink. I noticed that there were people coming into the hotel that weren't residents heading to the bar and restaurant which isn't a problem but I do think the hotel could reserve some tables in the restaurant and bar specifically for their guests. I would definitely go back, not to stay but to maybe try the food in the restaurant.
