On arrival at the airport we tried to get a taxi to the hotel from the rank. They wouldn't take us and told us ' hotel shuttle'. We rang the hotel who said to get a taxi from the rank it was the same price. Luckily another couple had the same problem and when they rang the hotel it was agreed that they would send a shuttle because there were now 5 of us.
The hotel itself is situated about 8 minutes from the airport in an industrial estate.
On arrival the receptionist was very efficient and polite and ordered our transfer for the next morning.
Our room was a family room. It was ideal because our son is 16 and it was actually two rooms with an adjoining door. Much better than the usual sofa bed next to yours.
We went downstairs to the bar. It was a small bar but for a hotel near an airport and part of an international chain it was reasonably priced €4.50 for a 500ml glass of Stella.
We were going to eat in the restaurant but unfortunately it was closed by the time we got downstairs. However the receptionist gave us details of a food delivery company which I thought was a good touch.
The beds were comfy and well equipped.
Our only problem was our shower needed repairing, but that was easily rectified for us because we had two showers. less
