I've been waiting for nearly 6 months for the hotel to install a hand dryer that works in the gents bathroom adjacent to the restaurant and pool and I have made numerous complaints to the staff that this is a health hazard. If you want to dry your hands you have to use toilet tissue from the stalls. This is... More

I travel here twice a year and enjoy the people who work in the hotel. Once engaged they are open and friendly. The rooms are always tidy and the aircon works well. It can be frustrating waiting for staff to notice that you want something especially at the restaurant, although this is a separate business. The Internet provider is also... More

If the room I had (spacious, kitchenette, quiet, aircon OK) was at the Airways I would be a very happy camper. The restaurant is average - but is very popular.
