“No towels and expensive trip to the airport”
Reviewed December 1, 2011

Hotel room standard was good and while close to the airport was suprised by $26 metered cab fare arround 5.30 am to get to domestic terminal.

No towels or bathmats were provided in the room and as we checked in late at night ther was nobody or number to contact anyone to get any.

I have stayed at the Formula 1 a few times and find it very convenient when catching flights. It is easy to get to andnot far from BAP. After a long trip to Brisbane we enjoyed a coffee and meal out of the refridgerators. We also found it easy to get in after a late fight in from Sydney

Only stay if money is the deciding factor. The air con was nessessary but too noisey to sleep with. Take ear plugs. Try an airport B & B instead, if the buget is a problem. On the plus side the Airport is very close for a taxi ride. Left before having the supplied continental breakfast as the self serve counter opened at 0700 and our flight was 0600.

I found this Hotel felt like a prison...the room was so small that we had trouble fitting our bags in...no lift meant we had to carry our bags up flights of stairs. I have never stayed in a room without a balcony....it was very clostraphobic. No tea or coffee making in room. Some food in machines but no sauces or anything to put on them. No shops (food or drinks) anywhere near this Hotel. It really did end my beautiful overseas holiday badly...next time I will make sure I get a flight straight home!!!

This was a very unpleasant experience, the rooms are the size of a decent bathroom, you could hear noises from adjacent rooms, and their was an allnight party held by indigenous guests with broken bottles and rubbish strewn over the entrance and carpark area.

The hotel meets our needs well when we are travelling overseas as it is close to the airport, the rooms are always clean and comfortable. Entry after hours is easy and departure is just drop keyin a box. Breakfast is available if you wish.
