Hotel was ideal. Situated on airport with a few minute walk to departure. The room was clean and tidy. And breakfast the following morning was super. Staff very friendly, polite and helpful

Everything went very smoothly, we dropped the car off, took the shuttle bus to the airport and went straight to our room at The Hilton. Very hassle free - the bed in the hotel was so comfortable especially the pillow, had a very good nights sleep before our on onward journey.

Everything went really smoothly. Parking and check-in (with James) was easy. The room was good value and we had a nice meal in the bar. Unlike other providers, here you keep your keys. So your car stays where you park it, you can leave possessions in it and you don't have to worry about security. On your return simply climb in and drive away!
