Average motel. Reception staff weren't very friendly or helpful. No shuttle service to motel - says a 500 metre walk (longest 500m I have ever walked) - not a fun walk in the rain. No lift so had to lug our suitcases up the stairs, man on reception didn't offer any help. I had to go down twice to ask for info on what to do in the morning as we were checking out before reception opened. Then again as there was construction going on directly above our room and we had to get up at 3.30am & also to find out about food as none of this was explained on our arrival.

Very basic room. Top bunk bed wasn't made up so we had make it ourselves. Toilet & shower very crammed. Air Con only had a heat cycle so we opened the window to let some cool air in but all we could smell was plane fuel so had to close it. Wouldn't like to stay there in summer.

Overall average stay, get what you pay for. Good for a stopover but wouldn't want to spend more than 1 night there. Eat before you go or take food with you.

We stayed here in June before an early flight out the following day. Yes it is not luxurious and there are no services but we were more than happy. The staff were friendly and really helpful and the room while very small was fine for overnight.
I would not want to spend any time in the room - but for us checking in at 10pm and out at 9:30m it was perfect. I have stayed in the far more luxurious Park Royal but it is twice the price. For the location of the hotel I think it is a great price - you can walk there from the airport so no extra costs of taxis and it is right next to Macca's if you are so inclined or the airport food outlets for breakfast.
We found the bed comfortable and the bunk bed above for our son perfect - better than the Park Royal as my husband and I have to squeeze into a double there - whereas we had a queen at the Ibis. We did not hear any road noise or heating noise. The bathroom is a wet room and towels are provided.
My only gripe would be is that we had to make the bunk bed ourselves.
I would definitely stay here again if we were needing an overnight airport bed. Just know that this is budget, small and with no frills accommodation option.
