Nice place to stay

Pros: Pool, Gym , washing facilities, house keeping staff are lovely
Cons: Tv Channels
Location: Close to airport Near butterfly creek Close to some shops ( with a car)
We stayed here for 5 nights, the rooms were nicely decorated and the rooms were well equipped.... with the exception of the tv, hardly any channels to watch and this is a massive downfall if you have kids. The bed however was a bit more on the uncomfortable side for myself. however for my husband he loved it. The view from our room was not great, nor did we have any chairs to sit on. Facilities at the hotel are great, my kids loved the pool, gym was also pretty good. The restaurant was ok, a bit on the expensive side, they have the offer of kids eat free. After spending $70 on just 2 mains and that's with no drinks (we weren't offered any) we thought it was a bit cheaper to go out to other places to dine regardless of this offer. Housekeeping ladies are amazingly friendly and work hard to keep the place looking spic and span. One other negative is getting in and out of this place during peak hour is really not fun, so if you plan to go out and about leave after peak periods. This place is a good place to stay at, the hotel staff are friendly and always willing to help, it's clean and the grounds are nice to walk around and the upgrades look fantastic. We would stay here again.

Airport convenience

Overnight stay after a long flight with kids. Facilities adequate, kids eat free at restaurant, $6 yellow bus shuttle from airport. Excellent buffet breakfast and staff in restaurant (although service a bit slow). Would stay here again.
