Stayed here with my girlfriend and it was excellent. Was working from the HOTEL WIFI which was surprisingly good. Seems clean, rooms are spacious and it was a comfortable stay. It's a bit more on the expensive side but it's worth it.

Stopped here a couple of times and will definitely be stopping here again. The spacious family room overlooked the airport which was amazing especially at night. The beds were really comfy and the breakfast fills you up for the day.
