Hotel in Detail:The Willows Guest House has much to offer guests looking for airport accommodation with a difference. The building dates right back to 1650 and is of a thatch design, so typical of a country cottage and each and every bedroom has its own private entrance. Another benefit is that despite being so near the airport it is not actually under the flight path meaning less noise disturbance for guests. Another benefit is the complimentary wireless internet access available in all bedrooms. More value is added with the free parking while resident and free airport transfers (see blow for details). Guests enjoy the friendly atmosphere created at this hotel that has just 5 bedrooms, meaning a personal service for each guest.
