We stayed here overnight as we had a flight to catch the next day. Easy booking service, nice modern rooms, very comfy bed and pillows and the shower was fabulous! Has a little kitchenette with coffee, tea, biscuits etc and some basics in the mini bar. There is a nice seated area out the back if you are a smoker... More

We needed to be close to the airport to travel on early the next day, and had dumped an RV close by to the hotel. They arranged a taxi to pick us up early for the flight out, and it proved to be a very convenient stop over. Got all you need in the room, and we got into the... More

Close and easy driving to get to airport from here. Googlemaps has this address WRONG and a bit across town, so print a real map and the phone number before you go. Jacuzzi not hot. Office closes at 7pm, but keys in a safe outside - you must CALL for the code to get your keys - would have been... More

Thank you for your reply we appreciate your feed back as we can then attempt to make changes so our guests will not have any challenges trying to find our Motel. Though Google maps from my experience has a slight margin of error when pin pointing street numbers to the property. And for the convenience of after hours arrivals we... More

We recently stayed here for one night prior to an overseas holiday. The location was perfect as close to the airport. It was also within walking distance to Brisbane’s Portside or Racecourse Road, Ascot were there are lots of cafes and supermarkets. The hotel had good facilities. Beds were comfortable and large. Continental breakfast was included which was handy. Our... More

We did a one night stopover before flying to Melbourne. The room was clean, tidy and pleasant and adequately slept 2 adults and 3 children. Close to the Brisbane airport and airport parking facilities. Also close to Racecourse Rd with its small selection of eateries and cafés. Train station across the road if you need public transport. The motel offered... More

We opened our door to the motel room only for our senses to be bombarded by cheap, overpowering air freshener. Either the shower or the toilet leaked, suspect it was the latter. Only redeeming features were a good hot shower and easy distance to the airport. Would have mentioned our issues to the staff but left early to catch a... More

WE are very sorry that the air freshener was not to your satisfaction unfortunately this is always judged by individual’s senses and each person has a different take on this. WE had our maintenance man look into the water leak you referred to and it appears that there was a small pinhole in the silicon in the shower that was... More

One night stop over after arriving in Brisbane late at night and travelling on the next day. Older property but renovated in recent years and very clean and fresh. Comfortable beds. Friendly and customer service orientated hosts. Would definitely stay again.

We used this motel as we had an early flight from Brisbane. It is close to the airport. The motel is clean and hosts are most helpful. It is opposite a train station but we had no noise problems. It has a pool, free Wi-Fi and complimentary continental breakfast. We would certainly stay again.

Room is comfortable and clean, however, I cannot believe how the price has increased within a year. We asked for an early check-in and I did not feel we were warmly welcomed considering we have stayed at this motel before.

We are very sorry you feel you were not welcomed in your request for an early check-in however there are times where regardless of if you are a person that comes once a year we can not accommodate such requests due to checkout times for the previous guests and any one requesting check-in before 10am we can't accommodate due to...

Will never return, the man at the reception was extremely rude & unorganized. Complimentary breakfast? If you're lucky enough the owners night just get out of bed to do their job!
