We booked this property because there was an airport transfer bus. When we arrived we found this wasn't operating till after 8.00am and we had to make our own arrangements to get to the airport. Disappointing.

Hi Wendy, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. We apologise if the the Wotif website did not have our shuttle hours displayed clearly at the time you made your reservation.We do hope that you made use of the special agreed taxi rate that we have with Gold Band Taxis that we advised you of prior to your arrival. This is a special rate for our guests arriving after our complimentary shuttle finishes. We hope to see you again one day, and we would be very happy to collect you from the airport in our complimentary shuttle if your flight arrives during our shuttle operating hours.

Convenient location - local shops and airport. Made early departure easier, better than the sleeping people on chairs at airport.
