Good facilities, Handy for the airport
Posted Sep 2, 2015
With an early flight and Sabina Gocken an unknown quantity,we decided to stay close to the airport for a night. Check-in was efficient and friendly and room (double+roll-away) just what we had asked for. Whilst designated as non-smoking, though, it had clearly accommodated smokers in the past, with a strong residual whiff in the air. O.K. for one night or I would have asked to move. Air conditioning seemed to struggle a bit and it was not a hot day by local standards. Nice shower. Snack lunch in lobby floor restaurant was bland but reasonable value for this sort of place. Afternoon by the pool pleasant and fairly quiet (the highway noise is omnipresent but unobtrusive) although they enforce the requirement to wear a blue rubber smurf hat if you want a dip. Highlight was dinner on the roof-top restaurant's terrace. Above average food at average price with a good view across to the Princes Islands.The commercial/industrial nature of the area means you'll see nothing in the way of historic landmarks but there's plenty to watch. Prompt efficient check-out at 6.30 a.m. and taxi arrived 2 minutes after it was summoned.Not a destination in itself but convenient enough that I'd use it again.
