Convenient Location
We have stayed here before and it was a similar experience. This is a no frills experience but it is very convenient to the terminals. The rooms are small but the bed is comfortable. There is tea and coffee facilities but the only other amenities are shampoo/conditioner and soap.we had time for breakfast and felt it was good value at $9. A range of cereals, porridge, fruit, yogurt, toast, pancakes and coffee. The staff were very polite and efficient. A no frills, convenient stay.
