Basic accommodation. Single beds, TV. Share bathrooms - used by truckers and next to a truck depot - wasnt noisy on my stay. Rooms at back of bar.....food and drink on offer but nothing else nearby. Late check in available. Easy drive ( I actually walked 40 minutes) to airport. 15 minute walk to public transport.

Good location for airport. Clean motel, friendly staff, very helpful. All the faciilities you need for a nights stay, plus food and bar. Obviously aimed at lorry drivers. Nonetheless, as a lone car traveller, I was made welcome and made to feel comfortable. Would use again if I am in the area.
