    Great hosts - picked me up free of charge from the airport, even though my flight got in at 9.30pm. Room while basic was clean, tidy, warm. Great shower, tv, comfortable and central. Close to airport.

    Hi Thank you for your question. Sorry we don't provide a free shuttle service but there are commercial shuttle operators and taxis from the airport to our place. We are only 8mins from the airport.
