Hello Frank50L If, when booking you can indicate date and time of arrival we will be expecting you .. and if you could call the accommodation when you are leaving the airport to come into town we will be waiting at the entrance to our building for you .. we are used to the wait time from landing till exiting the airport to be no usually more than about 30-40 minutes and another 10 mins (at that time of night) to accommodation. Just indicate all this clearly on notes at time of bookings and we will be prepared thanks and regards Patrick / Manager
