We booked a stay/parking package as we had an early flight. It is very convenient the car is parked close to hotel and it is a short walk to the terminal. We had a lovely room overlooking the airport but it was very quiet. The rooftop bar is a great place to sit watching the aeroplanes taking and landing.

Dear Skylark590,

Our location is perfect for park, stay and go and we offer a fantastic value for money package for car park and overnight stay.
I was glad to read that you thoroughly enjoyed your visit and we were able to accommodate your preference in our 1935 Rooftop restaurant by allocating a perfect table for plane spotting.
Regards, Rohit

Expected this to be cheap and cheerful airport hotel, quality and service was great and the top floor restaurant was fantastic food very reasonably priced - we had top rate Sunday roast that would have graced any fine dining restaurant

We went to a black tie dinner at Holiday Inn and stayed overnight. Food was excellent. The room was one of the best we have stayed Inn. The coffee machine was an added bonus. Bed was comfortable although the pillows were very hard.
Staff were very pleasant and helpful.
Breakfast was okay.

Stayed here on Saturday night as part of a friend's 40th birthday celebrations taking place at the hotel. Great service from all the staff who we met throughout our stay, from arrival right through to departure.

Although this is right next to the airport (we could see the planes from our window) we didn't hear a single plane throughout our stay, so the hotel must be soundproofed against it.

We will definitely stay here again, very impressed.
