Stayed overnight in a motel room, prior to an early-morning flight. Reception was excellent, the room was the best motel room we've seen in 50 years of staying in hotels, B&B's in Australia, NZ, UK, Europe, Canada & USA. No frills, just clean, everything we wanted, continental breakfast was precisely as advertised - & we enjoyed the tiny gecko liquid... More

We stayed at Colonial Village in Taigum to get some sleep before a very early morning international flight. The receptionist, Emma, was very friendly and courteous and checked us in promptly and without fuss. She advised us that we could use the key drop box to return our keys when reception was unattended and happily advised us about local public... More

We found a lot of cockroaches in our room. We managed to store a big one under a glass to show them. the duty manager refunded our money as we couldn't stay there because of this reason. The duty manager was understanding and this wasn't a good experience for us. There is a good cafe on site.

A very well run establishment with super clean rooms. My motel room had a kitchenette which came in handy for a quick dinner when the local restaurants of choice were closed on Monday night. Being good corporate citizens, they installed water saving showerheads during the drought, so the shower pressure is not extra strong, but sufficient and eco-friendly. The free... More

Paid $89- for a nights accommodation and continental breakfast. The only complaint was a ball of hair (looked like someone had cleaned out their hairbrush) in the corner of the room under a table, other than that the accommodation was good, service friendly and the breakfast was very welcome. Would certainly stay here again.

I stayed in a 1 bedroom 'kitchenette room for $99 a night. On first impression the room smelt quite musty and the decor is from the 1980's. The kitchenette consisted of 2 small hot plate, a very old microwave and a small bar fridge. More importantly, the room was not sound insulated. So it was an unwelcomed 0600 alarm clock... More

My wife and I stayed here so that we could attend a concert at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre (on the same road about 5 minutes away). The Colonial Village is definitely not 5 star, but our room was spotlessly clean and the price was pleasingly cheap. Continental breakfast was included in the price, and was served in the cafe rather... More

We have stayed in this hotel for 2 weeks and payed an average price of $65 per night. For the price the hotel was OK, as a simple breakfast was also included. On the good side it was clean and green, and had a small swimming pool, had enough parking spots and staff were very friendly and polite. There are... More

The accommodation was very neat and well maintained, the pool and facilities were excellent and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back. WiFi was only available in the cafe, but this is a small inconvenience.

We used this motel for a stop-over between flights. It's a 'bargain' rate motel but a 15 minute taxi ride from the airport (about $20 each way). the receptionist was pleasant and helpful. The room was small but adequate and reasonably clean and fresh. The wi-fi was free but only worked in the cafe area downstairs. Allocated parking adjacent to... More
