I rang up this motel months ago to book a room for my sons wedding, I had read comments on hotels.com, about the noise, so when I rang up, I mentioned what I had read, so the manager told me he would put me in one of the quiet rooms down the back, which I appreciated. When I arrived I... More

Stayed 5 nights. Room was clean and was of reasonable size. Contained all necessities for a short stay of several nights, crockery, fridge & microwave. The room was a little musty but bearable. Staff were friendly and helpful. Close to main Ipswich shopping centre. General room noise suppression was good. Pricing was realistic.

Impressed with the value for money. Was a bit noisy as is close to busy road. Very clean and tidy and safe off street parking. Has free wifi and is within walking distance of a supermarket. Would definitely stay here again.

A work related overnight stop, very helpful owners, nothing was too much trouble. Very clean and a good location. This is not a 5 star resort but for the price it is perfect. Great Thai place just over the road. I would stay here again :)

My wife and I stayed here for 8 days and found the motel very accommodating. Our hosts Gloria and Vince were great. The rooms were very clean and had everything that you wanted from tea,coffee, good and reliable aircon and shower and clean towels each day. We will be staying there again when in Ipswich.

We have stayed 3 years now here at Central Motel to attend the V8 Supercars at QLD Raceway. The owners give good honest friendly service and value for money. The rooms are clean and sizeable for motel rooms. Can't go wrong.
