Fairly dated exterior and lack of shiny signs mean that you could easily bypass this motel. While not in the luxury class, rooms were spacious and clean, carpets were new and beds were comfortable. Décor is a bit dated in style, but everything worked satisfactorily. TV and air conditioner are modern efficient units. Tarriff was very reasonable. Location is ideal... More

In crontrary to most of the reviews here I found my stay really good, my partner and I really only stayed in the room of a night and were out and about south bank since we were so close all of the other time. Thank you for a lovely stay we will definitely be back next year!

This motel has a tidy old kitchen, the bathroom is old but tidy. The bed was firm and good the TV very small, the couch was comfortable enough. Beware check out is at 10am, I'm normal used to 11am checkouts and I didn't read the fine print until 10am on the day of depature. Because of medical appointments in town... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The motel is a 30 year old building with individually owned units. Unfortunately some of the unit owners are reluctant to refurbish their units and this can have a detrimental effect on the motel as a whole. To be fair, when you booked the accommodation you did book for 6... More

Dear All, I would NOT recommend this Motel to anyone. Its noisy, old (1970's decor), the shower does not work properly (I scalded myself), I had to fix the TV up myself, the room was smelly, I nearly broke my foot walking into the bathroom with an unmarked raised step. It was very very noisy, traffic, late night parties next... More

Maybe if you had left the kitchen in the manner you found it, there would have been no need to charge the cleaning fee. On signing the registration form at check in, you are giving us the right to charge for incidentals that may occur - extra cleaning charges, use of phone etc. I find the rest of your comments...

Simple accommodation, neat and tidy. Owners very helpful. Would stay there again. I walked to both brisbane and the RNA show grounds during my stay, although public transport by ferry, bus and taxi available nearby.

I enjoyed my few days here & found my unit a very generous size & spotlessly clean with a well appointed kitchen, large bedroom/living room area and a generous sized bathroom.Handy location to South Bank and CBD so even though I didnt have a car it was only a cheap taxi ride away from several places I wanted to visit....

reading the reviews I can see where you would get the unfriendly owners from. They seem very uninterested and they do come off unpleasant. Location is easy to find. rooms are low range but what you pay for I guess. lots of room is the only plus.

Close to the Gabba at a good price. Would recommend it to others looking for a place to stay while watching the footy at the Gabba. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Good parking was included.

Only read these reviews after having a not so great experience at this motel. Cant really comment on the owners as the last couple of reviews have both positive and negative as I didn't have much contact with them just checking in and out.
