Stayed for two nights for business. Very near the airport so it's perfect if the business meetings are near the airport. Hotel looks new. Rooms are big and nice and clean. Though the wardrobe in the bathroom takes some getting used too. Two small bottles of complimentary drinking water is not enough in the hot weather. Breakfast buffet is very...

Restaurant and bar - excellent value for money and great variety. It is an airport hotel and therefore does not have a great location....

The rooms are clean and huge though house keeping should...
