Booked this hotel purely on price and glad I didn't pay more. The receptionist was friendly and helpful. Yes rooms adequate however wasn't aware it's across road from railway along with airplane noise..double blazing wouldn't go astray. Small issue with shower, hubby used it and told me water temperature would jump from warm to hot and warned me to be... More

1 room, 1 night, 3 people. For: nice managers. Great position to airport and Portside terminal. Light Continental breakfast included. Against: very basic and expensive room. Stuffy, noisy and possibly the worst bed I've ever slept in ... including Asia where bed are notoriously hard.

I booked on line and had to call them to arrange the key, as we arrived after reception closed, they organised my key with easy to access upon a quick call from their phone. Breakfast was ample, room was clean and everyone was very friendly and helpful.

the room was clean, tidy and well equipped. Bath fine. Best was the advice from receptiondesk to come into town via city cat, which is 20 minutes walk, but the cheapest way to have a nice trip to southbank and Brisbane city centre

I booked these rooms on the internet and after adding another room and making several adjustments the manager phoned me with a no cost upgrade. I appreciated the personal approach, which I wasn't expecting with an internet booking. The managers were warm and genuinely friendly people, the parking was right outside our rooms on the ground floor, so convenient for... More

The owners were brilliant, quick to respond to requests and very helpful with local knowledge. Local fish and chip shop and Bowling Club within walking distance for meals. Breakfast was great value, unfortunately the Resturant was closed for other meals. Train directly across the road.

We had a single night stay followed up by an early morning flight. We were warmly greeted at reception and found our room ok, unfortunately we had to make do with a flight of stairs whilst juggling 2 infants and 5 pieces of luggage - not the most convenient but I guess we were located the furthest from the other...

I used this motel as an overnight accommodation for the Airport. Found the staff very friendly and the room clean. It was rather old and dark but comfortable. The down side was we had an adjoining room so we could hear every word as clear as day from the people next door. I suggest that you ask for a room... More

All we wanted was a simple, clean room near Brisbane airport for our one night stay. We got that and so much more! Kristine and Greg, the managers, were friendly, kind, and helpful. We were surprised, by the breakfast offerings, which while modest, were so much nicer than breakfast offerings we have experienced at other chain motels at which we... More
