    We had flight delays and car issues. The staff were fantastic and helped us out beyond the call of duty. Nothing seemed to be a problem for them. The rooms may be small but the staffs hearts are huge!!

    Clean but very small and in need of a bathroom update as felt like you were in a caravan. Ok for 1 night but would be very claustrophobic for anymore. Friendly staff. Convenient location. Easy to find from airport.
