    It was very convenient, as my flight was at 6:10 a.m. They even offered a takeaway breakfast, which was great. I also used the shuttle, which was perfect!

    Excellent location for arriving late after a transatlantic flight. A lot of the car hire offices are actually next door which makes it doubly convenient.
