We booked here to stay for one night after our flight was scheduled to arrive shortly after midnight. The reception was aware of this and they have an easy to follow procedure for finding the key.

Great room and big bathroom and spar bath. We had a big bedroom with TV and the kids had the twin bed room across the hall. Close to the airport and a local shopping centre. We were there over Easter and our hosts made sure we could find an open restaurant.

The staff was super friendly, Free unlimited wifi, and free laundry. And the room was super clean and nice. And free airport transfer. And it's only 5 minutes by car to the airport, you can walk but it will take 30 min walk.

We rocked up expecting a basic room but were pleasantly surprised by how new and well equipped the room was. The staff were very helpful and suggested a lovely cafe down the road for a delicious brunch before we set off on our travels. Excellent stopover stay!
