2/10 Poor

Terrible service. There was no soap provided in the bathroom. Staff unfriendly and unhelpful.

4/10 Fair

Never again
Overpriced motel-style accommodation without a restaurant. The shower was mouldy and soap and shampoo are minimal. Not recommended.

6/10 Good

Pretty run down
Photos online make it look fantastic but must have been taken years ago. Place is old and run down. Also there isn’t any restaurant? Won’t ever stay there again.
Broken door
In very poor condition
Broken power point
Someone had covered the smoke detector?

4/10 Fair

Overall I felt dissatisfied, the photos advertising the hotel don’t quite match what I saw. A lot of road noise as it’s near a rail crossing. Staff were friendly but were hard to understand. Room overall needed a good clean but sheets and bed were good. Nice and close to the airport.

6/10 Good

Acceptable at price for 1 night stay.
Was OK for the purpose - overnight only for early morning flight. Pool looked clean. Bed was OK. No towels in room, ceiling fan hadn't been cleaned for years; access to room awkward, going down stairs at 4AM was dangerous due to poor lighting.
