          The place is clean and the people are friendly and helpful. It is not "conveniently located" if you want to go to the Reef Fleet Terminal or to restaurants. Somewhat on the outskirts of town. Good for the budget conscious.

          Basic little motel. Rooms clean and comfortable though no milk for tea or coffee was disappointing and reception closes early so no staff able to assist. Nice pool and BBQ area. 10 minute walk to centre of town. Couldn't get wifi up. Cheap and cheerful.

          You can easily call a cab or have it prearranged. The shuttles don't run that early.
          what time is the airport shuttle offered? Our flight does not arrive till 8:30 pm. Can we be picked up then at the airport and be checked in? Thanks

          Not sure but they do have there own bus that takes you down town and back and being that the airport is literally 2 mins away I would be very much surprised if they didnt have a shuttle , Great place to stay.
