I am a regular stayer here. It's one of the nicest hotels close to the airport with friendly staff, great selection of food and drinks. Wonderful facilities. It's a place where I can wine, dine, work and relax all under one roof. I'll be back again for sure

We were heading back to Australia then home to Canada and needed a hotel for an early flight. We picked the Commodore and glad that we did . My wife used the pool and found it refreshing. The rooms were large and very clean. Staff were friendly and eager to help. The restaurant was excellent as well!

Picked this hotel because of ease of access to airport. Probably others that are just as good and not as pricey. Okay food at restaurant and good shuttle service to airport so no big complaints but nothing sticks as special either.

The staff are always amazing, location is perfect and so easy to rent a car from the Hotel. Being picked up from the airport takes the hassle out of getting to the Hotel and again the staff friendliness is exceptional
