    Staff friendly and helpful. Room clean. Food palatable. Owners clearly endeavouring to provide an up to date hotel with a recently refurbished main hotel and new wing and could therefore be assessed with the proviso -"work still in progress" In view of my comment about W.I.P I have not made any recommendation re other travellers.

    Room far too cold.The hot air heating system was inadequate heating only part of the room and the bathroom had no heating provision at all.Our room(141) was in a new wing and the corridor also was not heated. As yet the hotel lacks a suitable ambience, It was something of a ghost hotel the only time we saw any other guests was at breakfast on the Sunday. The grounds were uncultivated and the car park full of non guest cars. Comments intended to be of help in your development of the hotel.

    The staff were very friendly and very good with assisting My evening meal was very tasty along with Breakfast and the service was wonderfull The location of the hotel is in a very nice place and for me seeing those planes at the back of my room was good it gave me thought that i was either in Egypt or Srilanka it was a lovely feeling for me Despite my didn't likes in the room the room was very clean with a fantastic shower

    First I have to say cost because most cheaper places include bed and breakfast at around £50 a night your breakfast was £10 in the town I could have got it for £4 My bed was not to my liking the quilt needs to be larger than the bed and the mattress was very uncomfortable to relax and sleep on, better pillows would also be more suitable Room in general had no feeling of warmth and comfort despite having the furniture and drink making facilities As i was there with a purpose to not be in the hotel most of the time it suited me the hotel is a little off the beaten track and some sort of information pack in the room and at reception giving some sort of indication on busses, taxi's what there is in the area would be good espically in the room to read while relaxing also what could be included is some history of the airport and hotel

    Size of the rooms & good water pressure in the shower.

    Hotel location could only be described as on an industrial estate with a aeroplane grave yard at the bottom of the totally over grown grounds. The whole of the outside area looked neglected verging on derelict.

    Superb

    The rooms are ver nice with balconies, the front reception staff were very professional and I enjoyed my stay.

    A little more clarity on the breakfast menu's and costs of each option, most hotels will just charge a flat rate for breakfast and you can eat what you like.

    The first problem was a kettle full of mould, followed by the Air Con unit in the room pouring water out and needing urgent attention. The final straw for me was we were out all day and returned to find our room had not been serviced. After discussing with the Manager! who was apologetic and got it fixed, the Service Desk Manager came to the room, apologised once again and gave us a bottle of wine. This hotel promotes itself as 4 star and whilst the rooms are reasonable, there was paint all over the bathroom floor and there is a lot of renovation work going on, it, making it a bit like a building site. Oh and it's not cheap either. What they got wrong was the 4 star service, these problems should not have occurred in the first place. Certainly I won't be staying there again.
