The ideal home away from home Motel with brief excess to the arrival or departure checking. Very comfortable stay. Always stay at Ibis Melbourne or Brisbane when travelling interstate. Keep up the great work Colin

While I wouldn't want to stay a week here, for a late night stopover it is great value for money. Gentleman on the front desk at midnight was very helpful in getting our air con to work, a portacot was laid out ready for our daughter and all this a 5 minute walk to the terminal. Everything is basic and...

The ex-Formule 1 Hotel at the airport is in the perfect location for a stopover, or the last night before an early departure. In just a few minutes walk from the terminal you'll get there easily. When you walk in it feels a bit like a backpackers type hotel, but staff at the reception was very friendly. Breakfast is extra...

Reviewed 4 March 2014

We were only there for the night because we had a very early flight back to Sydney. It might actually be a good option, rather than extending your stay in a posh hotel for an extra night that you might not actually be staying at.

Thanks for the review received about your recent stay with us . We are indeed ideally suited for 1 nighters between flights in and out of Melbourne . Our locality is 2nd to none, making it very quick and easy for seasoned travellers . Kind Regards Don

We have stayed at the Ibis hotel at Birmingham airport and found it very convenient and the same could be said of the Melbourne Ibis. Small room but clean and comfortable and budget price. I don't want to pay more than budget price for accommodation when I am arriving at 11pm and leaving early the next morning but I do...
