I just needed somewhere near the airport to stay overnight and this hotel gave me that. I thought the price for a single night was a little bit expensive as this hotel was very basic, however it was clean and quiet. Internet is available but for a fee. Receptionists continued their own conversation before greeting me but we then relatively... More

Stayed overnight before an early-ish flight. Expectations were reasonably low. Check in was easy; and then I had to carry my luggage up the stairs to level 3. No probs - I pack light. Bed was comfortable and had an array of pillows - something I appreciate. Shower / toilet cubicle reminded me of a caravan set up and was... More

Whilst the location of this hotel is perfect for late night arrivals and early morning departures the photos are rather deceiving. The rooms are tiny with the hand basin next to the bed. The shower and toilet are then a step in cubicle, similar to what a caravan would have. I would only suggest staying here if you had the... More

Very handy to airport for an early flight. Thought the overnight price of $116 was a bit rich. Room was tidy and quiet. Friendly doorman. Shower cubicle was tiny but bed was comfortable. No lift so if you're frail don't get an upstairs room

Very convenient to airport when you have an early flight and is an easy walk to all terminals. Rooms are small but if you are there for the convenience to the airport it is ideal. I did not notice if there was an elevator so it might be wise to find out if you have any disability.

Very budget hotel, comfortable, sufficient space, small window, service available within limited hours and service was ok. Yeah it can be noisy as you are so close to the airport...but if you have no choice, its ok for one night

Clean rooms and comfortable beds, all for a very reasonable price. Staff have always been very kind and accommodating in my experience. Vending machines on premises, with McDonalds, as well as other cafes/restaurants (ie at the Park Royal) nearby. Breakfast is available if purchased, i do believe, though i cannot review that as i am not a morning eater. Brochures... More

This is a very basic hotel with minimal facilities. It's very cheap, so if you are looking for somewhere to catch some sleep prior to an early departure this works. It's walking distance to the terminal and comfortable enough for a nights stay b

We visited in winter and the weather was quite cold so we used the heater in the room. It was very loud in bursts and made it impossible to sleep properly. Lighting was also quite limited and gave you a feeling of being enclosed. Otherwise the room had the necessities you need and was quite comfortable.

I knew what to expect as I had stayed at similar properties at Sydney Airport and at Campbelltown, NSW. Same model of building and fit out. The building is a somewhat 15 min walk from the International terminal, closer though from the Qantas end, but a very long way from Terminal 4. I received a warm welcome on arrival, close... More
