We wanted a quiet location where we could catch up on sleep. We are backpackers travelling up the east coast and had been on the road all night. This place was perfect! The motel was very quiet, the a/c was superb and the bed was very comfy. We were also able to check in an hour early which made a...

This place was not very tidy. There were cockroaches in the shower. The place looked liked it hadnt been vacuumed. No electrical appliances were near a power point. The toilet didnt flush properly. There was no heating available. The bed felt like you were sleeping on rocks. The lady wasnt very pleasant when I called to make the booking and...

Ammee, Sorry you found your stay so unpleasant. I'm unable to find your reservation in our system to work out which room you stayed in. Could be under another name? In the 2 weeks since your review I have cleaned every room and could not find a problem with any of the toilets? The rooms are vacuumed after every use....

This motel like so many others, have beds which are well and truly beyond serviceable life. I have travelled in some very poor countries, staying at some quite dodgy accommodation, with anything from boards as mattresses to old style horse hair ones. I expected that. But I do not expect this in Australia. Well, actually I do because it seems...

My son and I stayed just 1 night. Found the motel to be very old fashioned and basic. Very overpriced for what you get. Very noisy with traffic traveling up and down the highway. Probably wouldn't stay here again.

Staff very friendly and helpful at check-in. Rooms reasonably clean, bed linen and towels clean, bed comfortable, no heating, one blanket not enough had to use the two towels as extra blanket. Shopping center within walking distance. good location, easy to find, and almost on the Rockhampton bypass, made it easy to get out of town.

Stayed here last night as a last minute decision based on prices on wotif. Rang and booked a room at 8:00pm. Arrived at 10:00pm and despite us being a late checkin the man who checked us in was very polite and accommodating. I had forgot to mention we had a trailer and their car park is quite tight. He came...
