We stayed here on a Saturday to catch an early Sunday flight. At arrival we were welcomed by friendly staff who booked our taxi for the next morning and gave us some directions to the closest place to eat. Being a Saturday means that the restaurant was closed. As this is not a very touristic area we had to walk...

When I turned up after a long flight, I was met by incredibly rude staff who I can only assume were the owners of the motel. Made to feel like a inconvinience and completely unwelcome. If I hadn't been left there by the taxi I would have jumped straight back in and found somewhere else to stay. The only good...

Stayed overnight at short notice, manager looked after us well providing good information on local eateries. Room was clean and well maintained, shower was excellent. A large shopping centre is located in walking distance. Thoroughly recommend it for a stay. Has good off street parking too.

Close and cheap taxi ride from the airport. No thrills room but clean and tidy with a comfortable bed ONE MAJOR thing wrong was the day before they took $200 out of our bank account. Way more than we paid for the room. Never had this before, even when we've stayed in 5* they've only taken $100 at the time...

No bells and whistles but if you're not too fussy and just looking for a room with a comfortable bed that's close to the airport then this does the job. They serve typical pub classic dinners that are reasonably priced, wouldn't bother with breakfast though. I was particularly impressed by the reception staff, very polite, helpful and accommodating.

Stayed for a night before catching a very early flight the next day. Host was brilliant, she gave us lots of tips on how to save money whilst we were travelling, she took a good interest in us and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. The room and bathroom were very clean and spacious.

We wanted a room close to the airport to catch a flight early the next morning. We were welcomed by a warm host with whom we happily discussed for quite some time before taking the room. She gave us all sorts of tips with regards to our whole trip, from where to book a van for cheap to what time...

Within a 5 minute taxi of the airport, very convenient location. The front desk is very helpful with getting taxis for early morning departures. The grounds are well kept. The rooms are dated but clean.

We arrived after the reception was open (11pm) so we had arranged for them to leave a key for us. As we were traveling all day from Cairns (on a trip from UK) we didn't have access to emails or UK phone. So were unaware that our card hadn't worked and they couldn't take the money. Totally understandable! What wasn't...
