Stayed here for 1 night before an early morning flight. The motel is one of the closer ones to Brisbane airport making it very handy. Arriving after dark it is a bit difficult to find as it's in an industrial area, however the rooms are quite modern for a motel & the staff rather friendly. Our room was clean, secure... More

Not what I was expecting. It is located in a light industrial and commercial area near the Brisbane airport. It is a little hard to find, especially at night. The hotel building is off the street behind another building and surrounded by large commercial buildings. There is a hotel sign and lobby building located on the street, but hard to... More

We stayed there because of a morning flight to Hong Kong and we were very disappointed. The bed was hard but the pillows were even harder. There was spiders and spider webs in the bathroom. It was over run by ants. I would suggest it needed to have the pest control done. Also at around 6.15am a backhoe was outside... More

Chose this Motel as it was close to the airport when we flew in, & only 50m from Apollo Motorhomes which we were picking up early the next morning. The shuttle bus is Drop Off back at airport only, you need to find your own way there. The staff were very friendly, however Reception smelt like Curry. All the accommodation... More

Last minute booking for a place near the airport. A bit over priced for the cleanliness and quality of the rooms. Massive pain having to lug your baggage upstairs. The free shuttle is handy but the grounds and everything are a bit run down and tacky

Comfortable spacious room (no bench space in bathroom to put toiletries). Would have been high quality in its day, but is starting to look a little dated (some renovations being performed), with cracked floor tiles and damaged light fittings in the bathroom. Wall mounted shampoo, conditioner & hand wash provided. No doona/bedcover only a top sheet with a bed runner... More

Great clean motel. Rooms roomy with fridge, microwave, tea and coffee. Personilised toiletries. Beds and pillows clean and comfy. Cafe with great food and great selection for breakfast and lunches. Close to airport and port for cruise. Staff helpful and friendly. Transfer bus available. Recommend to all my friends and family. Will return.

Whilst location was fairly close to airport there is nothing else around. Restaurant was overpriced and service was like something out of fawlty towers. Husband had finished his meal before mine even arrived, ordered a corona and had to call them back to open it. Other people around us sending food back. Had supposedly home cooked chicken curry, definitely out... More

This is in a very sketchy area and its gated...... Because it was booked that morning online she wouldn't cancel the reservation. The office smells. There was no wash cloths or hand towels. It is loud you can hear anyone outside. The drapes are splattered with something.... Dead bugs on the floor. Just don't go
