Let's not forget, this hotel offers a nights accommodation plus parking convenience to the airport. Not luxurious but more than acceptable

We'd booked a room before our flight the next day and got parking for 2 weeks with it. Overall it was fairly cheap (88) and the room was great (good size with bunk beds and hydro bath). However, the parking was terrible (reception just said 'park where you can') and it took us 3 drive rounds and about 15 mins to eventually find somewhere we could dump our car. There were no markings and it looked like cars had just been abandoned - on return they were just dumped on the grass beside the road. We didn't feel confident that our car was safe at all or that, if the cars around us were all removed, our car would be left in the middle of a road. The transport to the airport worked (as in we got there) but it was a shambles - we didn't know where it was or who was picking us up, the driver looked depressed and angry and the bus looked like it had been stolen from a scrapyard. Basically an average priced room in a place with a lot of surrounding land so you could leave your car at your own risk. I'll pay another 60 for Bewleys and feel more confident next time.

Our triple room at the rear of the hotel was clean, comfortable, quiet and well decorated. The bathroom was modern and functional. The transfer service worked perfectly, and the staff were helpful and friendly. We stayed on a Saturday night, and the reception area of the hotel was noisy well into the night, but our room was away from the noise. I would stay again without hesitation.
