We stayed here on the last night of our holiday before taking a very early flight back to Auckland. Our first impressions were very good, the staff were efficient and friendly. There is a shopping centre literally across the road, very convenient. Our room was modern, clean and had everything we expected for the price and type of accommodation. The highlight for me was the amazing pool on the roof, I could see planes landing, trains, cars and even a cruse ship…all from the pool.
The restaurant was very good and busy, which is always a good sign, with a selection of local food (like Moreton Bay Bugs) and outstanding service (thanks Rhys).
We did have a view, not on the airport side but could see the Brisbane CBD and the Gateway bridges. I would consider this an Airport motel, it’s not as close as the Auckland Novotel is to Auckland airport (where you can walk), but it is a 5 minute drive and close enough to see planes landing.
If one is after more luxury and views, they should head down the coast to Surfers Paradise. Our check out was easy and the shuttle was great, I don’t know why others have complained. It was fast, the driver friendly, on time and good value for money, taking people to both the domestic and international terminals…would have cost more in a taxi.
So five stars for me this time, excellent.
