          Hi! I am staying in September for a few days. We are doing a bit of a driving holiday this being our last stop. Would you recommend keeping the car until we need to fly home or drop off the day we arrive and get about using public transport? How much will a taxi be to the airport from the hotel? thanks!

          You need to call the hotel and find out if pets are permitted before you book
          Do you have airport shuttle? If not, how to get there from the airport? I believe the nearest station is Powell station but how far to walk from there and how? We have a couple of luggage but don't really want to spend on taxi unless necessary.
