“Good Motel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

Very good hotel close to airport and Portside function centre and restaurants. Comfortable room, everything worked including air con and TV remote and great shower! Staff are very friendly and courteous. A very late checkout was offered and was no issue at all. There was also a free shuttle bus ride to the airport.

Stayed January 2017, travelled with friends

We have stayed at the Kingsford Smith Hotel over four times now and always enjoy our experience. Mark and Rose always greet us in a friendly manner and its so nice to have such a lovely welcome after what can be a long drive. The hotel is 10 mins away from the airport and very easy to find and also easy to get back onto the motorway when heading home. The rooms are comfortable and very clean and the aircon is marvellous too. What I like about this hotel is the customer friendly service and I think its great that once checking out that you are offered free water to take with you on your journey. We get the City Cat from Bretts Wharf a short 5 minute walk away up the river enjoying the scenery as we go. Because we always enjoy our stay all our other family members use this hotel too. Thank you Rose and Mark.

Room was quite generous in size and the bathroom was clean and spacious. The Motel is a short walk to the cruise terminal which suited us. The bed was very comfortable and pillows good. It also is in close proximity to the Hamilton Hotel and other restaurants.

Room Tip: We had a room on the 2nd floor, on the car park side it was quiet.

Clean, modern motel. Very helpful staff. And close to a variety of restaurants, both at Portside Wharf area (about 2 blocks away) and breakfast about ½ block away. And easy access to airport if returning rental car. They also have shuttle to airport and cruise termiinal.
