Good 7.2 From 879 reviews

Very good 8.0
Very convenient location to the terminal stayed here as had early international flight next morning. Unfortunately not a lot of overhead cover from the terminal to the hotel and it was raining, so got a bit wet! Would stay again and recommend, clean and friendly staff.

Convenient and has all we need
It was so convenient to walk across from the airport to our beds when arriving back at 11.30pm.

Great hotel
It is a great place to stay if you are travelling from the airport. Very close to airport but yet not over the top price. I will recommend it highly. Just do not expect anything poshy.

Great place to stay for the night to catch an early morning flight.
Shaun, au1 night trip
Good 6.0
Ok for a quick rest before moving on.
Easy check in after late flight, 5-10 min walk from departures. Bed was comfortable, a/c worked well as I was not comfortable with window open on ground floor. There was a small fridge which would have been good to know as I checked website for this reason and they didn't state this in facilities. Very small bathroom but hot shower was appreciated. Room smelled badly of cigarette smoke.
