    Close to the airport. We stayed only one night due to early flight and it was ok.

    From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was excellent - the room was well thought out and everything was there. The restuarant was excellent and very chic. The shuttle service was wonderful, it allowed us to leave our car at the hotel, which worked out to be cheaper than using the airport facilities. So no complaints from us and we would recommend the Holiday Inn to everyone....THANK You!!!

    We arrived very late, 2 hours delayed, at 1 30 am, due to strikes in Greece and uk. The staff had everything ready for us after we called for a cab; walked in the door and they handed me the room key. Since the airline lost our baggage as well, they gave us free internet for use to help us track and make the calls/emails necessary to find the bags. They also gave us a few hours extra (until 2 pm the next day) to check out, allowing us time to retrieve our bags from the airport, come back to shower. Best of all, a lovely continental breakfast was included in the price. This airport is literally walking distance from the airport (1/2 mile). Very convenient, clean, friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend this hotel.

    The hotel was comfortable and convenient to the airport. The airport shuttle was great. The best part was the high quality, delicious food served in the restaurant. Surprisingly good for a hotel of this type.

    The hotel is right on a highway and there is some traffic noise. The room was warmer than I would have liked and the thermostat didn't seem to work well. There was a trace of red mold in the shower. But, for convenience and for it's other good qualities, I'd definitely stay there again.

    The hotel catered for our travelling needs. The family room that we booked serviced as a comfortable stopover on route from south spain to calais ferry.

  • Group of friends

    Everything was very new and clean. The rooms were extremely comfortable. There was a convenient shuttle service that started at 0545. Some breakfast items were out before that time allowing a quick bite before heading to the airport.

    The tv was very difficult to use and there was no information in the room about internet, food or other amenities that you would find in most hotels. While the staff was very nice, they were unable to resolve our issue trying to order movies in our room. They did not offer us another room since we were only staying there one night.

    The restaurant served an excellent meal.

    The restaurant while serving an excellent meal did not serve anything else. The Spanish eat there main meal at lunch and a littler meal in the evening. As I was in Spain I expected the restaurant to be serving lighter food in the evening but was only given the choice between several three course meals. The mold in the bathroom was uncalled for. Ten Euros for WiFi was also uncalled for. The temperature in my room cycled between 65 and 75 all night, first I awoke searching for the blanket, then an hour later I awoke sweating like a pig, back and forth all night.

    Ideal location for Bilbao airport with good facilities in local town only 2 mins away. Easy access from motorway...

    The navy curtains made it so depressing but the rest of the decor was fine...

    Location & cleanliness. Buffet breakfast was good.

    We had booked a cot for a baby and had this confirmed by email. When we arrived they had made up a sofa for a child. It took an hour to get the cot as there was only one member of staff on duty who was running the reception, the bar and dealing with housekeeping problems. Not enough staff on duty. Also only a vending machine for food, with very poor selection of meals. No facility to have food delivery e.g. pizza and no bars /restaurants near to go for food.

    Primary reason for staying was proximity to airport due to early morning flight. Airport service (shuttle, etc.) was very good.

    Not a lot to do in the immediate area ... restaurant was mediocre after spending several days in San Sebastian with a lot more restaurant options.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    Very close to the airport, we were flying to gran canaria & we used the hotel the night before departure & on returning, great value for our family 2 adults & 2 children as breakfasts were included. We eat in the hotel restaurant on returning food was great & well priced though the service wasnt so good.

    Room was hot & there was no way to bring the temp down. If you have kids dont let flick through the channel as they will get a glimpse of the porn channel.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    Good price, close to airport and airport shuttle. Nicely decored room, very clean. Great restaurant down stairs.

    Not hardly any English movie stations. Bbc, cnn etcwere there. Just add a movie station and it would be 100%

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Good location for the airport and good value.

    Transfer to airport should have been every 15 minutes but was very erratic, we waited 50 minutes on one occasion
