We have stayed here on several occasions on nights prior to cruising from Brisbane. Nice and close to the port, lovely,well appointed rooms, and reasonable priced. There are several places to eat nearby, as well as the Eat Street Markets within walking distance.

This motel is situated in close proximity to the Airport, Roma Street Station and only a 5 minute stroll to the Cruiseship Terminal at the Portside Wharf which has all sorts of dining establishments as the motel does not have dining facilities. The rooms are very comfortable and clean and do not lack in size. They also serve a full... More

We were staying at the Kingsford Smith Motel prior to going on a cruise. We arrived around 6.00pm and Bette welcomed us with open arms. She was very helpful with advice about where to eat and our room was very comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble and I would highly recommend them :)

I visited brisbane for 5 night and stayed here as I was on a low budget. But let me tell you it is great value! I was blown away by the service and the room. Upon arrival I was greeted warmly and got shown where my room was. When I entered my room I was blown away by how clean... More

Although this motel does not have a dining room it is close to a very good resturant and take-away and within walking distance to a small shopping complex where food and other items are available. The Management serves an excellent breakfast - good value and great presentation. The beds are very good and the rooms are spacious and clean. Double... More

Port Parking is just across the road and a great, secure, cheap place to park your car if you're flying out of the country for a while. The hotel is priced right, is clean, quiet and has great staff who are very helpful and professional. I would definitely recommend.

This is an older property but in great proximity to the airport. The rooms are small but clean with a selection of drinks and snacks in the room. Breakfast is offered if needed. Although on a major street, the rooms are very quiet and we had a good night's sleep before our morning flight. The location is perfect, just a... More

My husband and I were attending a funeral and then flying overseas the next morning. I rang ahead a couple of days earlier to ask if it were possible to have our room ready early so we could get ready for the funeral. We were driving from the Sunshine Coast. Bette was wonderfully friendly and assured me that this would... More
