Last minute!

Was a last minute stay due to a flight cancellation. Room smelt like a mouldy bathroom but cleared once we turned the aircon on. Nice although shuttle to the airport should be free, its literally a 2 minute drive.

A bit overpriced

For what the room was, I found it to be a bit overpriced. Furnishings were a bit cheap. Bathroom and room was cleaned very well though. The restaurant served a perfectly cooked and very well presented meal. Roof top pool was amazing. Also the little Asian woman who was running the buffet breakfast was quite rude to me.

Not as close to the hotel as I’d thought but nice.

Pros: Rooms and amenities
Cons: Wi fi
Location: Near a large DFO shopping centre which I didn’t get to. Has a pool which I also didn’t get to.
2.3 k from the arrivals lounge so we had to get a taxi - I believe there is a shuttle or pick up service if you get there earlier than we did. But they were lovely when we got there. Breakfast was good, wifi not so great for the free one. Rooms clean and spacious.

Convienient location

Found reception staff very friendly and helpful. Was worried that we would hear aeroplanes at night but it was probably the quietest hotel a I've ever stayed in. Only downside was the meals from room service were not very good.

Great hotel close to both terminals.

Pros: Closeness to airport and has cheap shuttle to and from both terminals.
Location: Close to airport. Shops and tavern in walking distance
Great hotel to stay at. Close to air port and Skygate shopping complex and DFO. If you don’t want to eat at the hotel, the tavern in Skygate has reasonably priced food.
