Heart attack

While staying here I suffered a heart attack. The staff were extremely helpful. They stored my luggage while I was in hospital and the manager even phoned my wife to see how I was. The room was perhaps a little tired but clean and excellent value. Will stay again for sure....

Cheap & cheerful, excellent value for money

Hasnt been face-lifted for a few years, but clean, comfortable, free wifi, and incredibly quiet considering you could walk to the end of the runway in about 60 seconds - the rooms are quadruple glazed! A friendly bar & modestly priced and varied restaurant complete a near perfect bargain hunter`s hotel....
