We came off the plane (which had been delayed for 5 hrs) made the short walk to the bus terminal and the free Aviator shuttle bus was waiting for us. Elliot then assisted us with our bags to Reception and then to our room 😉

Top place to bunk down after a big flight or drive. The staff were fantastic and helped out with everything we needed. The rooms are comfortable and we’ll equiped. They also have a great restaurant with some really good quality food - loved the buffet breakfast is the morning!! Would definitely stay again.
