This is a ‘Very Good’ hotel, but I have decided to give the full 5 stars since we didn’t actually come across any issues and felt the value for money was excellent.
We booked a sleep park and fly package (we couldn’t find a premier inn cheap enough and has forgotten to book airport parking) A room on Saturday evening, parking at the hotel for a week, and taxi transfers to the airport and back - £116, completely faultless, and far far cheaper than booking airport parking and a nearly hotel, particularly on a Saturday evening. Hotel has ample parking round the back. This whole process was so efficient, form filled out at reception for the time the taxi was to be booked for, kept up to date via text message and taxi waiting outside at the exact time requested.
The hotel is 4*, and deserves just that, it is set in some really nice gardens just off a main road, but quiet enough to enjoy the ambiance.
The staff were helpful and friendly but didn’t doing anything outstanding - again, good enough for us.
The room was spacious with some nice extras, docking station, coffee machine etc. A large TV with good range of channels, hairdryer, ironing board, iron, all the usual stuff. Bathroom had a shower but no bath, and the room looked out into the nice gardens. The bed was extremely comfortable, one of the best we’ve slept in this year. The room was spotlessly clean too.
Negatives - few and minor
- A wedding was ongoing at the same time we were there, and as others have said in their reviews, it’s SO SO LOUD. People out in the gardens ALL NIGHT and still noisy in the reception area at 4am when we went to get in the taxi. This was a wedding reception so this can be forgiven, but perhaps the guests should not be allowed outside at such hours making so much noise.
- No Air Con. It wasn’t a particularly warm night, but the room was absolutely boiling, we had the window open which helped slightly, but it was too loud. There was a fan in the wardrobe which we thought would save us, but after turning it on I thought I was sat under an aeroplane engine it was so loud, even on the lowest setting - so that went back in the wardrobe.
Overall, a great stay - may come back less
