A very comfortable stay at Melbourne Airport

Airport hotels are not generally my favourite accommodation.

Most guests are only staying for one night and are often stressed; either about having missed a flight, having had one cancelled or catching one early in the morning.

So a nice, calm place to stay near an airport is a bonus. 

The Mantra Tullamarine Airport delivers both quiet, comfortable rooms and 24-hour meals (a restaurant open until 9pm, then overnight snacks delivered to the room).

It is a modern, well-equipped hotel located just four minutes from Melbourne Airport with an "on demand" shuttle bus service to the airport and long-term parking next door.

Pity the shuttle bus driver who picked me up gave confusing instructions as to where to catch the bus and was a leading candidate for the title of rudest person in Australia.

The morning shuttle back to the airport was a contrast, with a smiling, helpful driver on duty.

Mantra Tullamarine Hotel is certainly a comfortable and convenient choice whether you're beginning your trip, getting in late after a long-flight, or stopping over when visiting Melbourne. The beds are huge, and sleep-inducing.

Most of the floor-to-ceiling granite bathrooms include a spa bath and rooms have minibars (thanks for the crisps and peanuts, guys).

Hotel facilities include the on-site Woodlands Restaurant and Bar, a fully equipped gym, sauna and heated lap pool. A bit resort like.

My bed was extremely comfortable and rooms all feature wifi, a work desk, air-conditioning and Foxtel channels. 

There is also a conference and events centre for fly-in, fly-out meetings, corporate and social functions and training workshops.

Mantra Tullamarine also has a $100 day use rate (check in after 8am and out before 6pm), which could be really useful for anyone with a connection departing in the evening.
