We have stayed at this motel several times over the past 4 years, mainly because it is so convenient to get to the airport and to long stay airport parking facilities. It is also close to restaurants at Portside/cruise connections and the Hamilton pub for meals. However, the motel is badly in need of a refurb. Carpets are very worn... More

Stayed 2 nights in March 2014. No problems booking in or leaving early to catch a flight in the morning. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was dated but clean. Having only one access to the free wifi per room was annoying as both myself and my wife carry our own iPad. A second log on was available at extra... More

This hotel was a short ride to the airport and the taxi cost was about 30 dollars. The beds were comfortable and the bath was bigger than expected. It had a good sized shower with good water pressure. I had to do the after hours check in. Had no problem getting into the room, but you needed a password for... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights. All the facilities were better than described, and it's location was perfect to the airport and transport to the city. But the best was the staff. They went above and beyond. They even called us within 5 mins of us leaving to let us know my girlfriend had left her sunglasses behind!... More

We stayed in a family unit for two nights in late November. There were four of us, and the unit gave us plenty of room. On arrival we were checked in by a friendly gentleman who also gave us information on the local area and where to eat. When we got up to our room on the first floor, we... More

but once inside this proves to be a very nice hotel. Clean, large rooms with equally spotless and roomy bathroom. Great shower and good toiletries and biscuits and coffee making apparatus. There was a hair dryer and TV and A/C. There is wi-fi and a computer to use at the front desk. The staff was very friendly and there are... More

This motel is some five or so Kms from the airport although this did not trouble us as we arrived by car for a three night stay.The reception was business like but not particularly helpful. The room was a bit of a letdown. As a good hotel room it ticked all the right boxes. As a motel room it failed... More

I booked a room at this motel more than a week prior to our arrival on 14 December 2013. Even though the "Vacancy" sign was still up, when we arrived in the early evening, my husband and I, along with our adult son, were given Room 104 which was totally unsuitable. There were three adults and we each had a... More

We made a corporate booking through a booking website indicating we had children. Upon arrival reception staff made inappropriate jokes regarding charging whatever they wanted as they had company credit card details. When another colleague arrived with children the reception staff stood just outside raising their voice about not being told about children staying the night. They were rude and... More
