Perfect for our overnight stay and early flight out as it’s only 5 min to airport. Could not use the available shuttle service as our flight was too early. Room was spot on and had everything we required but bed was a little soft.

Close to the airport and an easy late check-in. The rooms were large clean and modern and perfect for our family of 5. The owner is very accommodating and friendly. The Airport Palms Motel is highly recommended for families.

Hi. The fridge has a small in-built freezer at the top of the fridge. More suitable for packs of frozen vegetables etc. I would "estimate" the size to be 450 wide x 250 high x 350 deep. Regards.

Get the airport shuttle The folks who run the shuttle also manage the hotel. They are great people. Do not use a cab. They are expensive
