“Cheap & Cheerful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

My Mum and I stayed here as a cheaper airport alternative when we had an early morning flight to catch. Same set-up as airport Formule1 (Ibis Budget), but a lot cheaper. It took as less than 15mins to get to the airport carpark. The area is not pretty, but the room was spotlessly clean, the bed comfortable and security good. Breakfast at $7 (cereal, toast and atrocious coffee!) was handy, and again cheaper than anything at the airport. Staff were friendly and polite. Definately ok for a one-nighter before a flight...

Room Tip: We had downstairs room facing the back, and it was quiet enough. We requested these rooms at check...

Okay for a night stay to catch the Spirit of Tasmania ferry the next day, we needed such a place for the reason being somewhere non fancy to sleep. One thing was the toilet seat lid needed replacing .

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We stayed here after a late flight and left early the next morning. The room was clean and the "bathroom" was a novelty. The shower was like a caravan shower/toilet with the basin and mirror in the room. Good way to keep the cost of accommodation low but I wouldn't want to stay for a long period of time. Great value for money if you aren't staying long and its nice a close to the airport if you're driving.

Where do I start...would have been nice to have been told that there were renovations going on, and that the entire ground floor would be out of service. Overwhelming smell of fresh paint, or maybe it was glue, but very strong. Timber laminate floor, and the bed was on casters that couldn't be locked, so trying to sit up in bed and read before going to sleep was impossible without the bed sliding all over the room.
