The motel was equiooed to a level comparable to much more expensive hotels, its location was ideal for the airport and close by bars and restaurants. The staff were unbelievably helpful and friendly and gave us early access to the room, following our early arrival in Brisbane

I stayed here a year ago and had a fantastic experience. Was a bit concerned when I called and heard it was under new management. I needn't have worried. Late check in, no problem. I called and asked for extra wine - it was there. The beds are still the best in this price range by a country mile. Looking... More

We chose this motel because we knew we'd be tired arriving from North America and it was close to the airport and had a pool for our kid. We got one of the rooms with a Queen plus a single -- not many motels had that arrangement. The room was quiet and good-sized and clean. The pool was perfect. The... More

We recently stayed at this motel and found it to be one of the best we have stayed at in Australia, the rooms were spacious and well appointed, the Motel was really conveniently located some 500 metres away from the Brisbane Cruise Ship passenger terminal, and only 15 minutes drive from Brisbane International and Domestic Airport Terminals. A few minutes... More

I'm really glad we booked this place. We arrived at midnight after a late flight. Check in was a breeze; we had earlier received an email with the code to the safe in reception. Inside the safe was an envelope with our room key, receipt, instructions. Straight up to a clean room, and straight to bed. Parking is immediately outside... More

We stayed here for a night prior to a morning departure from Brisbane and it proved a great choice. The rooms felt brand new and equipped with all the usual facilities. One nice touch was the provision of fresh milk for tea and coffee in our room. Although the motel is on the busy airport road the room was quiet... More
