We only overnighted here, but could not fault a thing! We stayed in the new boutique part, a smart fit out. The shuttle was waiting outside terminal & return shuttle prompt. We did not have breakfast so can't comment on that. Definitely will stay again.

Very close to airport for our late arrival and collection of campervan the next morning. The free shuttle service was a bonus as taxi are quite expensive. Family room was a good comfortable size for our family of 4.

Comfortable accommodation, good delivery service to airport and pick-up. Also appreciated being able to leave our vehicle at the motel for the three weeks that we were away. Friendly staff and rooms were well presented.
