Convenient. Airport pickup & town shuttleI've stayed there several times and find it convenient. They do airport pickups but not drop offs. There's an hourly shuttle bus to the town centre. The bus to Cooktown stops there on request. On my last visit over the New Year, the only 4 toilet blocks out of 6 on one floor were working. I hope ...
