Well located for All Terminals
We used this hotel mainly for the parking deal and because there is a bar on site for a drink before bed. The bar area is very comfortable and staff friendly. The parking was a great deal and we got a spot inside which was a bonus on the way back as the weather was dreadful. The are only two things we found less good about this hotel, one the bed was quite small for a double and two the shuttle bus is not great value at £3 each - it does go round the other hotels a bit and went to the south terminal first. On the way home we got a taxi for £10 so not much more for two people. There are quite a few hotels around like most airports but we had a comfortable stay and the staff were very polite and professional.
