Check-in and Check-out times

Many international flights arrive into Australia in the early morning. For most hotels, check-in time is 3.00pm and check-out time is 11.00am.  Should you wish to guarantee check-in before 3.00pm you will need to pre-book, and pay for the previous night. If you wish to guarantee a late checkout you will need to book for the next night. These additional nights can be booked at the time of making your reservation. If required please indicate this on your registration form.
