This was one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in! From the outside and from the advertising it looks very nice however, the room I was given was awful. Room1 it was Red not a very conducive colour to sleep in. The chairs in the room were stained and the carpet filthy. The bathroom floor was sticky and... More

cigarette smell in the room and the owners made noise until 1am (looks like they live in one of the rooms?). Some cars had been visited on the parking, windows broken. Would not recommend even if it's cheaper than the others.

This hotel has a great prize compared to similar ones on the area. That's it's only good point really . Room was spacious but decoration and furniture are due for an update. Bed was comfortable for a night .Very basic facilities. I didn't book my shuttle to the airport until I was there and it was fully booked so I... More

Friendly staff. Whatever you do - do not accept the room above the bar. It's a disaster. VERY noisy. You hear every sound below. Could hear staff clattering around all night long. Also though only a couple of miles or so from the parking or airport it is on a small winding road.

Stayed here 22 October before an early flight next morning. Room was at back of hotel and extremely spacious for 2 although decor needed attention. Room was very clean. Bathroom needed attention as was tired and grubby in places. There was hair on floor and in bath but sink and toilet spotless and towels smelled lovely and fresh. Although really... More

We stayed here both before our flight to krakow for one night and when we got back for one night as our flight landed too late for us to make it back home. We literally chose this hotel because we booked the short break at the last minute and all the others surrounding were full - although on the website... More

Booked into this hotel as I had a late night flight back to the UK. I was very unimpressed with the cleanliness of this hotel that I am actually swinging between a 1 and a 2 star. I would like to make the following hygiene points- *When I walked in it had clearly been used as a smoking room. The... More

Stayed here for short overnight as we had early flight in morning to Italy. Clean, tidy and friendly staff. Had a meal and a couple of drinks which was very nice and inexpensive. Used the shuttle bus to airport which cost £12 and was ready to go when we were. Would definitely return for an overnight stay. Free wifi was... More

I booked this at late notice as I had an early flight from Stansted and thought might be good to stay at a local hotel rather than a chain. Also said it had a good regular transfer. Check in was by a truculent rude guy, terrible hand painted murals in reception and bar area - whole place looked out of... More
