6/10 Good

Not as good as expected.
A/C was broken so only blew cold air so needed to have a heater sent to room as colder inside than outside. (Winter conditions nearly, guess in summer it would be fine) Other peoples pubic hair and dried wee stains on/under toilet lid noticed when lifting it for 1st time. guess from a previous guest. No upgrade with gold card as all rooms closed down we were told. Nice and friendly staff though but not sure if I would Ever stay again.

Quiet and restful stay
Would recommend both the Hotel and Restaurant. Very helpful and friendly staff. Initiated service rather than being asked. Plenty of space in the room and quiet. Being super critical the room could do with a freshen up. Airport transfers went well. Overall a great stay and would return.

Airport hotel with a difference
With an airport hotel there is an expectation that they will be functional but have no character this hotel is an exception. We were very pleasantly surprised to find how good this hotel was. The rooms were nice and spacious with some nice little touches. The restaurant and bar area were nice and lively, might have had something to do with it being St Patrick's day as they had a live singer/guitar player. We had lunch and dinner there which was excellent, although the continental breakfast did not have a great selection.This is the best airport hotel I have stayed in ever.

10/10 Exceptional

The hotel and rooms were clean and it was a beautiful property. The bed was very comfortable and the restaurant was excellent. It appeared that locals even came here to eat. A quality property, we liked it so well that we spent another night here on our return. Shyla at the front desk was very helpful and they even had free shuttles to/from the airport! We highly recommend the Commodore!
