    The room is not sound proof enough as the town clock could be heard on the hour and there was wind whispering all night. The bath could do with some serious upgrading

    Parking not safe and pillows not fresh

    Parking is not safe because hotel is near a mall and everybody can cross the parking. Room was very small but warm. Internet wifi is good. Doors and walls are very thin and you hear all noises on the hall and other rooms. Breakfast was good english breakfast buffet, but without mushrooms and no fresh fruits.Pillows were not fresh

    The postcode on Expedia is completely wrong and even with the postcode it’s impossible to find and not at signposted. Expedia states it’s 4 minutes from the airport. It’s 20 minutes without traffic. I booked a double and was given a twin. Parking on the hotel carpark for less than 12 hours was £10. When I questioned this cost I got a snotty reply from the chap behind the desk who informed the pubic car park was cheaper. In future I’ll just pay the extra for the premier inn
