You get what you pay for and this hotel is a prime example. Nothing at all wrong with the hotel, just none of the usual bells and whistles we usually expect at any hotel. I had a room on the ground floor. The room was very small but I expected that. Double bed underneath a single top bunk. The bed...

Thank you for the review . We agree that our rooms are compact, and being a budget hotel our services and amenities are limited . It was nice to read that you found the bed comfortable and the walk to the terminal easy with signposts along the way . We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future...

This hotel was fine for a place to sleep before an early flight. It's by far the cheapest airport hotel option but seems overpriced for what you get. The rooms are a bit strange, I felt like I was in a small boat cabin, and the bathroom sink is in the bedroom rather than the bathroom. The shower goes everywhere...

Hi, Thank you for your review . We agree that we are by far the least expensive of the hotels at the airport, some of their rates being more than double than ours . Our rooms are indeed compact, designed for 1 night stays and will not appeal to all . Though we were pleased to read that you found...

This place was awful. The room smelt of sewage, it was noisy all night long, and the window didn't shut properly. I'd rather travel into the city next time and stay in a hostel than stay here Suggest avoiding.

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay with us . It was indeed disappointing to read of the room smelling of sewage or that the window would not close properly . We apologise for the inconvenience this caused . If only our reception staff had come to know of this problem they would have undoubtedly remedied the situation...

A nice little older hotel looks to be renovated. Good for a quick over night stay or between flights and close to the airport. Although my taxi driver who parks at the airport wasn't sure how to get to it. We just followed the signs its only about 600m away from the terminals. But you can't see it straight away...

Hi, Thanks very much for the review regarding your recent stay . There is indeed clear signage indicating the way to the hotel from the airport terminals, and it's good to know that you found your way easily enough .

My wife and I stayed here one night in-between flights. I was concerned beforehand that the hotel would be hard to find, but the signs were ample and my concerns were unfounded. About 10 minutes walk. We were fortunate that it had rained earlier and stopped, as part of the route is not covered. Our was immaculately clean, cleaner even...

Well this is what it is... a budget hotel (expensive in absolute terms at AUS$129 a night, but much cheaper than other hotels close to the airport) within easy walking distance to the airport. Fly very early in the morning and you will be happy to have this IBIS as a base (unless you want to pay a lot more)!...

This is very much budget, but does the job if you have an early flight. Bathroom is pretty ridiculous and looks like a toilet from a ferry and for soon reason the sink is in the room rather than the bathroom. Be warned the wifi is not free and ridiculously priced so just walk over to the terminal - it's...
