Located close to Portside, Eat Street, Racecourse Road and Cirque de soliel (when performing). We had a front room overlooking Kingsford Smith Drive and there was no traffic noise in the room. Very friendly and helpful hosts. We booked directly with the motel at their web site and this worked well - we were expected and checked in quickly. Great... More

Wonderful hosts Betty, Tony make you feel very welcome, and Oscar the dog at the foyer, deserves a special mention. He was a hit with the grand children. Very comfortable clean rooms with all the amenities. Great location being about a 10 min walk to Portside hosting a range of eateries

Well placed for the airport and places to eat as well as access to the city, either by bus or the City Cat. A short walk to Portside with it's shops and variety of eating places. Alternatively it is a block away from Racecourse road with even more choic. Very friendly, helpful staff. Would definitely stay again.

I needed a place close to the airport for an early morning flight. The front desk closes at 9 pm and if you arrive late they have a safe with your room key. I arrived just before closing, barely. Wifi needs a password and I remembered to ask for it otherwise? I had an issue with my room but at... More

We booked it because of Cirque Du Soleil, but also great for anybody using the passenger cruise terminal. The managers were so friendly at reception that we knew we were going to be in for a great stay. The location close to restaurants and river ferry terminals is great and we had a great and relaxing day in Brisbane by... More

This is the perfect place to stay the night before catching a plane from Brisbane airport. Short walk to Portside Wharf for dinner; 10 minutes by taxi from the airport. Very helpful and friendly staff who accommodate our car on site while we are away. The rooms are very comfortable and have everything one could want for a short stay.... More
