We stayed here in a Family room to break up a long trip. The Family room comfortably slept 5 of us. It had a separate bedroom with a double bed and then the lounge had the two singles and a sofa bed. We got room service from the Restaurant and it was tasty and affordable. Had room to park our... More

I stayed at this accomodation for 1 night during my stay in Rocky. I arrived with a friendly greeting from the office staff who let me check in early because of my flight (arrived about 10:30am). When I arrived to my room it was clean & the aircon on ready for my arrival. The room was spacious, neat & the... More

Could not fault the room, very clean. Bed is obviously not like home but it was still comfortable. Reception staff extremely friendly. Motel is in a prime location, just had to drive up the side street and straight through to my destination each day without traffic lights.

Always a great place to arrive at after a long drive from the Gold Coast. The restaurant is very handy to the room so that you don't have drive out again to find a meal. The rooms at the back are the quietest for getting away from the road noise.

Friendly staff, clean room but small. The restaurant food is way over priced ($33 for a steak, chips and vege) and nothing special. Location is ok with a park over the road and convenience store next door.

Rooms were moderate size, comfortable to stay a few nights. Bathroom was new and fresh looking, nice finishes. Highway noise was very minimal. The crowning glory is their restaurant- the steaks are unbelievable and you can slice through them with a butter knife (not exaggerating, it was that tender). Chef came out afterwards to check on the meals. Good selection... More
