The bathrooms are pretty scary and there were enough (human) pests around to make somebody want to chase themselves. – Lee
To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Roberts International Airport, or “Robertsfield”.
What to Expect
- A small international airport with limited flight service, filthy facilities and minimal shopping and dining options.
- Reviewers describe this airport as congested, dirty and rife with extortion attempts by airport staff. Once you get past the security checkpoints and into the boarding/waiting area, the atmosphere is much calmer.
- Exorbitant airport “departure” fee.
Where to Sleep
- As of January 2019, we have no reviews from travellers who have attempted to sleep in this airport. Write a review to help future travellers!
- For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.
In this guide we may refer to locations as “landside” and “airside”. Landside is the public area of the terminal located in the non-secure zone, before security. Airside is the secure area of the terminal that you must reach by going through security.
