Nice accommodation, no problems. Breakfast wasn't very nice though. I don't recommenced the orange juice. They could work a bit on food quality. Has good parking, nice rooms, clean sheets, clean bathroom.

Good value for money at £95 a night the room was clean and the parking is excellent. Only one criticism was bizarrely not many plug sockets in the room. Also no restaurant for evening meals although there is a take away service and a vintage inn on the other side of the car park that does good pub grub. Very...

Standard high quality (at price point) property in an excellent location. Several pubs and bars local to the hotel so lots of choice for food and beverage. Noise from the airport and motorway is minimal, parking more than adequate. A safe choice for a good nights sleep away from the busy centre.

Overall an excellent 4 night stay in a comfortable and affordable hotel. The only slight issue was the lukewarm water in the shower and the fact that the water flooded the bathroom and the area outside of it. This was just a small blot on the record though as the bedroom itself , the location and the breakfast were wonderful...
