That's what I wanted - somewhere quiet, with friendly and helpful staff, in a clean and well set out room. I will be back on my next visit. Breakfast was very good too and delivered on time for me to make my flight out. Also the free shuttle is so handy. Thanks.

It would be very hard to say anything negative about the cleanliness or quality of this accommodation. Everything was in great condition and very clean. I found the room a little small and did not like the outlook. The area is not great but if you're there because of its proximity to the airport, you couldn't get a cleaner hotel... More

Great place to stay, as you walk into the room it was very clean, fresh and stylish. There is a tavern next door for meals and you can order room service if required. (note: cook breakfasts do not commence until after 6.30 so if you need to be on your way before that only a continental is on offer) The... More

Pick up from airport was smooth, staff friendly and convenient location. Clean and well maintained room. Did not notice any noise from airport or from the road. Hotel and service station next door to fill up the body and car!

Very close to the airport, not exactly cheap for a motel, but clean. The big rooms include a kitchenette. Nice furniture. Recommended to everyone that have an early morning departure or a late evening arrival!

Very convenient location close to the airport. The motel was exceptionally clean managed by friendly staff. Great airport shuttle service which was free of charge. A bistro at the hotel next door was very convenient along with the BWS bottle shop at the front of the Hotel.

Very friendly staff, great service. I only stayed while in transit, and chose it as was rated excellent for airport layovers which I can concur with. The pub next door serves good solid meals or for something different you can order pizza from the organic pizza place nearby.
