We are surprised to read a couple of negative reviews for this motel, as we have nothing but praise, and we, too, are frequent travellers.
The receptionist was friendly and helpful, the suite was sparklingly clean and very nicely decorated, besides being extremely well-equipped, and the bed was very comfortable. The bright and modern bathroom with unexpected extras, like a heated towel rail, was just lovely.
We ate in the restaurant/cafe and found the service friendly and efficient and the meals we had were delicious. It's cafe/bar ambience, rather than silver service, but it's very good and convenient.
The motel offers a free shuttle service to the nearby airport, and we had no trouble booking a shuttle for 4.00 am.
The only negative was that we could only stay one night.
