Our stay at the Airport Palms Motel was one of the best experiences of our holiday. Having access to a vehicle for pick up and drop was totally unexpected and without a charge for this service. The room was exceptional, a very clean and well equipped room. Liz and her husband were so accommodating and a pleasure to deal with...much appreciated!

Hotel's Favourite
I stay at this Motel complex for several reasons, Friendly Management and Housekeeping staff nothing is a bother, Clean and a high standard of housekeeping, Well appointed and very close to the airport 5mins, shuttle service provided here for those that need to be dropped off or picked up, close to Russley golf course 5mins, and heaps cafes all excellent dining within walking distance to some and shopping, gift shops, beauty therapists, hairdressers and retail. I also like the security of the premises and there is great carparking for each motel, and excellent residential surrounding. Ill be back again and recommend highly.

Clean, tidy room. Friendly and helpful hosts. Let down by no air conditioning in room. Had a stand fan which blew hot air around. Room was extremely hot and couldnt sleep due to that. Very tired and washed out the next day. Wont stay again during summer.

Hi Shaga001 Thank you for your review. We appreciate your feedback. We are pleased to hear that you found your room clean and enjoyed our friendly hospitality. We are sorry that you found your room too hot for you during your stay. We have had a couple of exceptionally hot days this week - up around 29 degrees and agree that on the few days a year that we have these high tempaeratures, it would be great to have air conditioning. We look forward to seeing you again and if you visit during our cooler days we can promise you a lovely warm cosy room.

Cannot rate Graham and Sharlene high enough. Our room was so comfortable, they looked after me so well taking me to and from all my laser eye treatment appointments as well as providing excellent recommendations for places to eat. Thanks for making our stay so easy and relaxing.
