I just stayed one night when flying in to Brisbane late. Easy to get to from the airport. Reception isn't open 24 hours but if you've prebooked they send you an email with the code for the safe so you can get access to your room key. All very easy. The room was reasonable. I thought it smelt ever so... More

Being as it was our last night of our 2 weeks holiday, it was so nice to stay in such a beautiful and comfortable room. The manager there was such a delight to chat with. The restaurant was also a winner!

Clean, spacious motel with all modern facilities, tea and coffee provided, fridge, toaster, good parking, nice friendly host. We chose this motel because it is within walking distance from our rental car drop off station, and the motel provides airport shuttle the next morning (shuttle service only in the morning). The shuttle left for the airport on the dot, very... More

We stayed here the last night of our Qld holiday. Spotlessly clean accommodation, courteous staff and even a "restaurant" on site, perfect I thought. The food in the restaurant is very basic, but it was sufficient. Courtesy coach to the airport was the main attraction.

This motel offered a good accommodation for anyone wanting to stay relatively close to the airport. It's a bit hidden away, and the staff was very friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. The restaurant leaves much to be desired for anyone not wanting Indian food. We both ordered the fish and chips, which tasted like Morton's frozen filets and... More

From my first phonemail to this motel, I was impressed with the 'lady at the end of the line'. She was courteous and helpful and I was given the impression that this was a family owned business where they were prepared to go all out to serve their clients. Today I met 'The Voice', Christine, the manager of this establishment.... More

We selected this Motel because of it's proximity to the airport (and because it was 4 star? And because I thought it was a hotel, and not a motel). As our car pulled up to the place, my husband immediately started kicking up a fuss and declared he would not set a foot inside. I had however already paid in... More

Stayed here one night to catch a morning flight. Rooms are very basic, but clean. It's close to the airport. They offer airport transfers with drop off only on set times.

Stayed here for 1 night before an early morning flight. The motel is one of the closer ones to Brisbane airport making it very handy. Arriving after dark it is a bit difficult to find as it's in an industrial area, however the rooms are quite modern for a motel & the staff rather friendly. Our room was clean, secure... More
