Clean hotel but food not that great!

Pros: Spacious rooms Clean Polite service Gym
Cons: Quality of room service
Briefly stayed here before flying out the next day. Check in was easy and the room was spacious and clean. Windows are sound proof. There were only a couple of minor disappointing aspects of my stay. Room service took a long time (50 minutes) and the salmon/chips was very overpriced for a basic meal. The following morning, the breakfast wasn't that good either - coffee arrived cold and just a little below average. I travelled via the free bus to the international terminal. Despite being the only one on the bus, the driver dropped me nowhere near where I had to check in -- which is fine, but I thought just a little weird! Apart from that, everything else was fine including the well equipped gym!

We arrived late in the evening the staff where very helpful as the car park was full and we needed a parking space. We also had to head to the airport at 3.45am, in which they provided a drop off and where prompt with this. The motel was clean and quiet.

Hotel near the Airport

Pros: The distance to the airport was the main concern. The staff were certainly an asset for this hotel. It's expensive and therefore should be maintained
Cons: I think to overall look of the hotel when you get out of the lift - carpet cleaner or replaced and the same in the room as well as blinds in the rooms
While the staff were excellent we felt the hotel is looking a bit tired. Carpets stains in hallways and rooms, curtains looked well used. The bed was made of clean,crisp linen and the bed and pillows were comfortable. Breakfast had a good selection but we went towards the end of the time and had to wait for a refill fill of eggs and bacon but staff did this well and were happy to help all who asked for anything.
