Loved the easy access to airport. Good clean room. Downside was uninterested, bordering on rude reception staff. Chaotic dinner service at restaurant. Recommend staying if you have early flights.

It was a really spacious room with the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept in. The access to the airport through an internal lift made this great for our check- out for an early flight. We will be back!!

Great for someone flying out from the airport. Surprisingly quiet. Receptionist was brilliant, polite, pleasant and helpful. Our adult son who had to use the divan bed reported that it was uncomfortable. The kingsize bed used by my wife and me was comfortable but i like a thin pillow and the pillows were all too thick for me. It would be desirable to have both thick and thin pillows to meet all tastes. I forgot to mention it to the receptionist but the cupboard door over the fridge did not shut properly thus not turning off the light in the cupboard. Just needs an adjustment to the hinges. I had to use a bag to jam it closed.
