Great hotel

Good location for T5, easy free public transport, staff on the desk friendly and helpful. A little tired around the edges, but reasonable for one night. Restaurant ok but over priced. The one big draw back is the lack of soundproofing between rooms, you can hear other guests conversations even when they are speaking at a moderate level, so take your ear plugs.

Nottingham GB
The hotel was far more expensive than what I needed, the person who did the booking for me clearly was not listening when I said all I needed was a room and easy access to airport. I didn't need hardly any of the facilities.

The toilet didn't flush.

Staff were very helpful and arranged taxi.
