Perfect location
Basic hotel but has everything you need if you need to be up earlier for your flight. It is a five minute walk to the airport and you can pay to leave your car there while on holidays.

Quick and easy transit hotel
We stayed here purely as we were in transit arriving at 11:30 pm and flying out at 6:30 am next day. Inexpensive and clean and a short safe walk from terminal. Well signed how to get there and McDonalds is 300 m away so can stop in and get early brekkie.

Basics only
In a time of great strangeness due to Covid-19, my stay at this hotel for one night was just bearable. The room was clean but very basic (the bathroom was very claustrophobic), service was very limited and McDonalds was the only source of sustenance.
