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.

One of the best hotels ive stayed at

Everything was just right. Plenty of space in the lounge. The chairs were comfy. The bed was good. They even made up my daughters portacot with a pillow and sheets and blanket as well as a little towel and soap (such a lovely gesture). The staff were lovely. They brought a highchair to our room and picked it up when we were finished. Breakfast was good. Nice selection. All in all a comfortable stay before we headed off to raro.

Disappointing service

We had stayed here before the night before a flight and found it convenient. However this time it was disappointing and we would not stay here again, for two reasons. We arrived at night to park our car at the hotel before an overseas flight. We were told where to park - way round the back of the hotel - but then after we parked, it turned out we couldn't get back into the hotel as the staff member had not given us a key card. We had to walk all the way round in the dark and cold, dragging our suitcases, with a five year old, and we got wet and muddy before our flight- and pressed for time. Then, on the night we returned from our holiday, we arrived to check in late at night. We had requested a king bed with a rollaway on our booking, and we were told this had not been prepared. The staff said they could do it then for us but we were so shattered we just wanted to go to seep and took a room with two doubles. Disappointing service and would not stay here again.

This is a great hotel, and close to the airport

Hotel staff were friendly, efficient and approachable at all times and the room was both very comfortable and clean. Facilities like the gym were excellent.
