It is an older type of motel, but it was clean and tidy. It was on the flight path, but the noise level wasn't bad. Good central location to the airport, supermarkets and shopping malls. The bedroom was of good size with a wardrobe and dressing table. However, the wardrobe was stuffed with extra blankets and pillows, not much room...

Room was clean, tidy, well equipped & comfortable. Pool for quests located close by but could not hear the noise. Parking was a bit of a tight squeeze but manageable as the complex was full when we stayed. Close to Rainbows End for the family. Supermarkets & a small shopping centre within walking distance. Airport is close so expect noise...

The accommodation definitely needs a re-vamp (which I think must be in the process as they were painting new rooms while we were there). Quite old, bathroom is definitely old, kitchenette okay, beds were not very comfy at all and quite a small space. However on the up side, great location, in the middle of everything you want, Westfield just...

My family of 5 spent 2 nights here to check out some of the family attractions in the area. Grocery stores, fast food outlets, Westfield Mall and Rainbows end were all within walking distance which was a treat as we weren't too keen to drive too much on the rather busy motorways. Service was fine, restocked coffees etc fresh towels,...
