We used the hotel for an overnight stay prior to a morning flight.
Obviously being close to the airport you are going to get aircraft noise and a rather full and noisy hotel.
My husband uses the “Intercontinental Chain” of hotels through work and often stays in one of the range, because of this we were upgraded to a Premium room, however if this was there Premium room I dread to think what the standard rooms are like. Compact and just wide enough to fit in two beds, the room was adequate, but not like other HI we have stayed in, also the part of the hotel block and floor we were on did not have a lift. So you had to cart your luggage upstairs yourself, I found this quite annoying for a chain as large as HI to not even offer when you check in to arrange to have your bags taken to your room, as it seemed the other rooms in the hotel had lift access. Thankfully we were only on the 1st Floor, and I think there were another 3 above ours.
The facilities were standard, but clean even though compact, and you did get the standard shower bits.
Did not take breakfast as we had an early flight, and went out for a meal to the Honey Bee which is about 5 min walk left out of the entrance to the hotel with a much quieter ambiance than the hotel open plan dining area which seemed to be full of loud children running around.
The hotel is good for being fairly close to the airport, but I think in future we will be doing an on airport hotel as the noise seemed even louder in this one and it was off airport! Serves its purpose though if the other hotels are full and you want something a little lower priced.
