This motel is some five or so Kms from the airport although this did not trouble us as we arrived by car for a three night stay.The reception was business like but not particularly helpful. The room was a bit of a letdown. As a good hotel room it ticked all the right boxes. As a motel room it failed badly. There were none of the facilities one might expect such as a microwave, toaster, sink etc. The room was spacious and the shower was efficient. There was no comfortable armchair so not a room to linger in.
There is a joke of a swimming pool. I had a look at it a couple of times but it had a suction pump circling it. I checked with reception who said that the pump could always be removed if anyone asked.
We mainly booked the Kingsford Smith for the location. It is within walking distance of the River and close to one of the stops for the City Cat service into the city.
I was incidentally somewhat taken aback to find that I could have paid significantly less for our room had we turned up on the night rather than pay Expedia in full months earlier.
I cannot imagine a poor review will make the slightest difference to this motel/hotel. It is kept very busy with overnight stayers on their way to or from the airport.
