“Great for an early flight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

This hotel is nothing flash, but the room was clean and the bed comfortable. Fine fr a night prior to early departure.
PS, if you are arriving late, make sure you grab something to eat prior to checking in, as there are only vending machines in the hotel.

We found the Ibis to be very convenient for our needs with our early morning international flight,the room was very suitable for the 2 of us,the traffic noise was not heard despite being by the highway.

Basic. A place to sleep if catching an early flight. No coffee or tea making facilities in room, when catching a 6.00am plane a cup of coffee can help! No soap for shower - unpack your toiletries from your case!

i have stayed in formula 1 before and was of a very high standard in sydney and canberra,was a bit unlucky had a very quiet room however had a bad smell either the heater/airconditioner or wet mouldy carpet smell....everything else was great however the bad smell put a dampner on the stay....

Very clean rooms a bit cramed. Would be useful to have a kettel to boil water or a microwave at least in the dining area. Centrally located for air travellers. Lack of food outlets other than Mackers is a problem. Contact details of resturants who will deliver food will be very useful. Bar fridge in the room was very useful.

Excellent place to stay before or after a long flight as we just walked from the international terminal after flying in from Paris and arriving late evening. Then could do the 4 hours drive to country Vic in good condition the following morning.

For basic accomodation this was ok, however lack of tea &coffee making facilities as well as a small fridge was missed. Any similar room i stay in when i am away for work has these facilities available.
