Facilities, comfort and very quiet convivial surroundings
Expensive drinks and food
Every thing went to plan so would def use u again thanks
Location within walking distance of EMA terminal Large car park Helpful stagg Good food
The aircon in my room (018) was really struggling. Although set at lowest temperature (16 degrees) it could only cool the room to 22 degress even when flat out! Needs attention.
Proximity to the airport and availability of meals late at night.
Location. Staff, friendly and efficient
Room standard disappointing for price charged, having stayed previously, the increase in price is not matched in the room. Refreshments could be inproved in the room.
Everything we dined in the restaurant the food was superb the service excellent one of the best dining experience we have had we will be back and we would have no hesitation in recommending the Thistle
Overall everything was very good
Had to request a different room at 11pm due to noise issues. Bed very incomfortable. Very hot in the room. I will not return
had booked with you because you had air conditioning in the rooms. Then to find you cook in your room .Due to the fact that you cant lower the temperature below 16 ...great for winter.
when I booked i said I had mobility issuea and a lift was required. On arrival this hotel has no lift and when I said I couldn't manage stairs I was given a downstairs room and to quote the receptionist "a bus ride away",pity there was no buses! the food was rubbish
Location Food Staff
Location, nice hotel, lovely staff.
Interconnecting room, noise and foot traffic.
Getting to use a pool as part of the stay
Location, value for money and that you changed the date for me.
That the bill incorrect and at first the person the dealt with it seemed a little rude. However she did sort it out and was lovely in the end
staff really helpful and friendly. Great value for money. Very convenient. Overall better than my expectations.
Staff did provide a ground floor room as we have a disabled daughter and 2x travel cots for our children. Late check out of 12pm. Wifi reception good.
The room had tired decor/furnishing/carpets and cramped and the bathroom very dirty and outdated. Very noisy from other hotel users. Not 4* quality or the usual thistle hotel standard. 5-10 min walk from arrivals so not at the airport. Hard to find and get to in the dark. not well light, no paths. difficult to maneuver luggage, and our disability buggy/wheelchair in the early hours of the morning in the rain. Room expensive for what you get. Tea coffee facilities hidden away in a cupboard so only found on leaving hotel.
Friendly and helpful staff food was good also in restaurant
Car parking cost, which we were not told about until checking out.
Food was good, location was good
No lifts Room service Bar staff Bathroom grubby
The restaurant needs modernising / layout changing.it was ok for breakfast but not for an evening meal,it lacked character/ atmosphere. They had also ran out of menus.
Location. Short walk to Airport. Excellent room.
Had to pay £2 to get out of car park after registering and dropping off luggage before returning hire car
