Have stayed here many times. Basic accommodation which does the job when you have to catch a red-eye flight out next morning. Close to walk to from the airport but will probably want to use a trolley for bags. Comfy bed. Shower was crap. Like trying to wash under a mist of water. Had to keep the window shut due... More

Location was close and easy to get to and from. The rooms were tiny and the bathroom similar to a caravan. That being said being 7 minutes walk from International Departures and only costing $140 I think it was worth being cramped in. It can be noisy, with guests coming and going at all hours but I didn't sleep much... More

Stayed here on an overnight transfer in flights. Signs to hotel were clear but may be difficult to walk this distance if carrying a lot of luggage or if raining/windy. Not worth renting a car from airport as the rental carpark is halfway to the hotel. Hotel staff friendly and helpful. Our room had all expected basic provisions. We were... More

The staff were lovely but wouldn't stay here again. The room was old and like a shoebox. Hard to even fit our suitcases in the room (3 Of us,) The bunk bed was not even made up ready for the third person. We were too tired after a long flight to make it so shared single beds. Breakfast average. no... More

Whilst I realise this is your Budget level Hotel we found the noise level from other customers unacceptable,not because they were yelling but because the sound of people talking around entrance area and in stairwells just carried so much it was several hours before we could get sleep.Other than this very important thing it was good value

convenient location with walking distance from airport terminal buildings. Rooms were clean well equipped and the bed very comfortable. The shower cubicle needs some work to prevent water escaping from the shower area - a curtain would help. We didn't have the breakfast so cannot comment on that

Simple functional rooms, excellent position (waking distance to airport), plenty of parking and a great value breakfast. Top value! (PS-If your driving using a GPS, double check that the location of the Hotel is correct before leaving. I had to drop a pin on mine to get accurate directions).
