The stay was good. Nice room and clean. Service was good and helpful. But... What was an absolute let-down was breakfast. Expecting a buffet like in Rydges CBD (and it says buffet on the description) that was not so. Was basically ordering from the normal limited breakfast menu. It took long to arrive, the orange juice never made it... Anyway it ruined the stay for me as I was looking forward to a buffet. Never mind that it cost more pre-ordering the breakfast than it was actually worth! So either get room with no breakfast or go to Rydges in town or another hotel.

Very happy over all. Would’ve liked the restaurant menu to have had more variety. Room, staff and service were wonderful and pleasant. Had a very lovely relaxing stay. Thank you.

Superb location - rise and shine, all set to step downstairs and catch your early morning flight! No airport transfers and stress! Only one problem for us - the pillows! Commented following morning and were advised that we should have requested a softer pillow which they keep in store. Suggested both be offered in all rooms.

It was very quiet in the room even though it's right at the airport. From the room to checking in luggage was 2 minutes walk.
