We landed in Brisbane. No hotel booked as we thought that there would be hotels in or immediately around the airport, and seeing as we were heading straight out the next day we didn't feel there would be any problems. So we arrive around around half seven in the evening. The information points were closed but they did provide a list of accommodation near by but not on site. The only hotel on site is the Novotel. This was fully booked! We looked at the list provided and compared it to trip advisor, the options didn't look good! Whilst on trip advisor, I saw the airport Ascot hotel, much better reviews. The thing with random looking is that you don't really know the location, anyway at the point of getting desperate we phoned the ascot, yippee they had a room.
Taxi ride was required, it turned out to be about 10/15 mins from airport, about $30 in taxi fare.
We had a warm welcome from Sally, the room was spacious, clean and well presented. Sally was full of recommendations of where to go for food - we opted for a couple of cans of beer from her little bar and headed to bed. Great night sleep. If you wanted to be really picky, just outside there is a busy road, sometimes you can hear the traffic but nothing major by any means.
Sally recommended a place for breakfast just up the street which was fantastic. The hotel held our bags whilst we went to get breakfast.
Also arranged at the hotel was a taxi to the airport.
You'll not be disappointed staying here. Also point to note all the other hotels/ motels listed for the airport were on ascot's road, do yourself a favour, forget them and stay here.
