I was arriving late at night for just an overnight stay. Ordinarily I would stay on the CBD but I wanted to be closer to Eagle Farm. The motel staff rang me the day before, explained how to get the key and the room was comfortable, quiet and convenient. Check out was simple and very friendly.

Nice, clean and convenient. Friendly staff. Beds were comfy. Nice hot shower. Ideal for night before cruising. Shared a family room with 4 other ladies. Ok for one night but a bit cramped if stayed any longer.

Have stayed at this motel a number of times as it is close to the clients I visit. The front facing rooms (to the road) can be noisy but I prefer this motel as it is close to the cruise terminal with a number of restaurants and to Racecourse Road with restaurants and supermarkets. The ferry cat is close by... More

Convenient for the airport and fine for a one night stay before catching an early morning flight. The family room was pleasantly spacious with the two twin beds being in their own separate room to the main bedroom. Free wifi worked well.The room looked over the car park to the rear of the motel so we were not disturbed by... More

Guests arriving after 9 PM must contact the property in advance using the information contained in the confirmation email received after booking." I thought I would arrive before 9PM, so i did not contact... More

We chose this hotel because it is close to the airport but what a find it is. The rooms are nice, very clean and comfy (king size beds) and the owners are extremely helpful. Although on a main road it was very quiet. The real find was some really great restaurants about a 3 minute walk away.

We were after a hotel close to the airport for an overnight stay. This motel was close, clean and very comfortable. The managers went out of their way to help us with our late check in after a wedding. The bed was extremely comfortable

Handy location and easily accessible by airport shuttle bus. Can be a little noisy as it's situated on a major road, but the double glazing does help. The room was a good size, but the sharp step to the bathroom caught me out several times result in a stubbed toe that I could have done without. My front desk service... More
