Stayed for a night before catching a very early flight the next day. Host was brilliant, she gave us lots of tips on how to save money whilst we were travelling, she took a good interest in us and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. The room and bathroom were very clean and spacious.

We wanted a room close to the airport to catch a flight early the next morning. We were welcomed by a warm host with whom we happily discussed for quite some time before taking the room. She gave us all sorts of tips with regards to our whole trip, from where to book a van for cheap to what time...

Within a 5 minute taxi of the airport, very convenient location. The front desk is very helpful with getting taxis for early morning departures. The grounds are well kept. The rooms are dated but clean.

We arrived after the reception was open (11pm) so we had arranged for them to leave a key for us. As we were traveling all day from Cairns (on a trip from UK) we didn't have access to emails or UK phone. So were unaware that our card hadn't worked and they couldn't take the money. Totally understandable! What wasn't...

If there is staff other than the owner I couldn't see any evidence of it. The entire page is tired and past its prime. It is uncomfortable and unwelcoming The owner gave me a hard time about how early I wanted to get to the airport, kept trying to shorten how early the taxi weeks arrive. Got snippy when I...

Two nights in the Aviators Lodge for the V8's racing and although its on the other side of Adelaide airport perimeter, its only 15-20 minutes into the city. Very friendly staff that put me in a modern upgraded room on a very hot weekend in town with temperatures in the high 30's. Thankfully great air con and a pool as...

The list of things against staying here is long, first you open your door to a smell of old dirty carpet, the room is tiny, the bathroom outdated, the furnishings old and tired as is the decor, then you decide to go to the "restaurant" and order a meal which is at restaurant price but turns out to be a...

Yes its location is good and the owners are nice but it ends there. Very tired and needs some loving care. Don't take me wrong it is clean but old and needs some paint and love. The beds are rock hard. Only continental breakfast to your room @ $14.95. Meals are very basic in the restaurant and around $30 for...

Due to an airline issue I was forced to stay overnight. This facility located 5 minutes from Airport Terminal. For purely a place to sleep this property was adequate. Found some cockroaches in the spare pillows stored in the linen cupboard. The main issue was the "Key Security Fee" being $200.00. Not even a 5 star Hotel requires this (Usually...
