The rooms are clean, and bathroom facilities in them very good. The bar area is very worn and shoddy, and expect to queue at reception. There are better options, but...

This is a place clearly aimed to serve airport visitors. Well organised, a little basic, shuttle service (bit expensive), VERY early breakfast available. I stayed there when I was in transit and would make such a choice again. If you have more time between flights, you might pop out for a day in London. There is a good and frequent...

Stayed overnight for an early morning flight. Room adequate wifi awful! So many comments already about wifi but nothing has been done about it. These days it's as bad as having no heating or water. The very poor wifi should rule this hotel out immediately . Other hotels can provide adequate wifi why not this one
