Great Motel, extremely convenient to the airport and easy to locate. We arrived at 1am and the key was where we were advised it would be, the bedside lights were on in our room as a gentle welcome. The room was very clean, also the bathroom. There was a good selection of coffee/tea, iced water in the fridge. We particularly... More

Bill and Pat made us feel most welcome and were extremely helpful in advice as to where to eat dinner and light snacks. As we had no car we were sent across the road to have dinner and we're delighted with the choice, the food itself and the whole atmosphere. Being in such a pretty neighborhood we took a walk...

Great location for acces to the city centre, shops and airport. Could not fault the room for cleanliness and comfort, and loved the big spa. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Free WiFi was available but was very limited. Would happily stay there again.

Clean as a whistle and impeccably clean, it would be hard to find anything not up to scratch in this motel. Naturally this property has a very high occupancy rate and is frequently sold out so don't leave your reservation to the last moment. There is no restaurant but there are a couple of restaurants and cafe within 50 metres... More

The hotel owner was kind enough to pick us up from the airport (they are SO close). Super friendly, fantastic (and walkable) dinner recommendation, very clean accommodations and even made taxi reservations for us the next morning. They took the stress out of an otherwise stressful situation. Don't think twice about making a reservation.

This is our third stay here. I rented two units this time - one 1 bedroom and one 2 bedroom. Both were absolutely spotless, well appointed and well maintained. I have only two minor issues - no tissues were supplied and their shuttle service doesn't operate at 4:30 AM and the taxi cost me $16. There are two restaurants within... More

Just perfect as a base after arrival or before departure. There is everything you might need, even an iron and ironing board. The owners are very helpful. They helped us with tips where to eat and arranged for us the 3 am transfer to the airport.

Picked this place randomly using previous reviews. It was great. Clean, comfortable, and above all very good hosts. We arrived too late for the free transfer from airport but only a short cab ride away

Very modern, spacious room. Immaculately presented. Nice and quiet too. Super handy to the airport. The owner is very friendly and kept the office open until past their usual time, for our late check-in.

The motel is incredibly convenient for a place to stay when you have an early flight out the next day. Pat and Bill Shaw offered their shuttle service for the entire airport area (restaurants, etc.) and could not have been nicer and more helpful. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable.
