      The staff was very pleasant. We were provided van service to the airport to drop off our rental car and also van service to the airport to catch an early flight. The breakfast was ready at an early hour, tasty and well prepared.

      I didn't like my stay at the Puffin Inn. There was possible drug dealing going on in the room above ours. Lots of young voices of people coming and going into the wee hours with lots of noise. Other guests also heard these noises. There should either be a patrol or an onsite security to regularly monitor the grounds and the persons staying in the rooms This needs to be taken care of for the safety of your guests.

      Near airport, price not too high, helpful staff, WiFi, breakfast

      The window in my room #1208 would not lock (mechanism not adjusted properly) thus I could not reduce the jet noises as a crack opening remained. Get maintenance on it. Otherwise good experience.

      Very close to the airport

      I only stayed one night. Got in late and left early. Did not utilize any of the services just slept and went.

      I tried to print my boarding pass at the business center but the computer was sooooo slow and eventually had to leave for my meeting. Did not get the boarding pass printed.

      It worked well for us close to airport and the shuttle pick up was quick

      It was a fair way into city central but the public bus was fine just outside door. If they run a shuttle this would work in there favour

      spacious rooms, nice staff, great shuttle service, close to airport

      both beds in my room had a well-worn depression in the mattress, but it was possible to sleep on the other side. Mattresses are thick, so that helps.
