We chose this hotel as we had an overnight stopover between two flights and we wanted to stay somewhere close to the airport. This hotel is ok if you do not have any luggage with you as even though it is only 600m from the airport, dragging your heavy luggage all the way to the hotel can be very tiring.... More

The hotel is OK if all you are looking for is somewhere to spend one night near the terminal and your wallet is not very full. I stayed one night in January 2015 before an early morning flight. The room was small but clean and so was the bathroom with a shower. The terminal is close enough to walk if... More

The rooms are very basic but clean however there is no elevator. It was rather frustrating to have to drag my heavy suitcase to the third floor. It was great to be within ten minutes walk of the Qantas terminal for a short overnight stay.

Hi, Thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay, especially the fact that you found the rooms to be clean and our great locality so close to the airport terminals . We apologise for the frustration in having to climb the stairs, as the staff will always try to assign a ground floor room if they can . Sometimes,... More

The room is purely to sleep in for the night..no frills...and is only a few minutes walk to the terminal. That is what the advert lets you know in advance and its what you get. Clean and convenient for the flight.
