We came from Adelaide and stayed overnight prior to departing on a cruise. The rooms are good and quiet. There were roadworks going on nearby but we didn't hear any noise. It was only a short walk to the terminal but because the footpaths were in bad condition due to the roadworks the manager happily drove us with our luggage...

We overnighted here after arriving late in the afternoon. Lorraine in reception was so welcoming, friendly and helpful with directions to restaurant area which is within walking distance. Room was right on the main road, but totally sound proof and we had an excellent night's sleep in the comfortable bed. Highly recommended!

We checked in at 1.30am and the procedure was easy and hitch-free by reception phone to a call centre. The staff member there took us through the check-in procedure and waited whilst we accessed our key. It was all...

We stayed overnight at this Motel before an international flight. The location is convenient to the airport, and the free shuttle on our our return to the airport next morning was appreciated.
