    Well this hotel is adequate, plenty of hot water, comfortable bed and a good breakfast - would I stay there again, no. Its pretty dire, dull, grimm outlook just not very heartwarming. But if on a business trip and the location suits then its fine.

    Hotel is next to the airport, but only complex bus service. Rooms with TV and AC. Dinner available, but more imbiss style. Breakfast buffet with egg bacon beans yogurth toast and jam.Very friendly staff.

    If you are looking for a short-stay basic hotel with clean rooms, very comfortable beds,good hot showers and great serve-yourself breakfast, then this is it. The one downside was a £6.00 per night charge for the car park.
