We wanted a place to stay convenient to the airport and downtown for two nights, so we could explore Brisbane without a car. This location worked well. We used the airport shuttle and bus and train, which were all efficient. The motel itself was nothing special, somewhat run down. There is a lift for baggage, but no elevator. There are... More

Hi, We are glad to hear that you found the location convenient to the airport and the city. Most of our guests are similar to yourself and want to make the most of their limited time between flights to explore what Brisbane has to offer. The buses and trains at our front door make this easy to do. We will... More

I had booked this hotel for an overnight stay on my way to a family funeral. Arrangements were changed and I had to cancel my booking. The staff member/manager was very understanding and assisted me professionally and with understanding. If the service when staying here is as good as the compassion shown, then this motel is strongly recommended.

Hi Jackie W Thank you for making a note about your experience on Trip Advisor. This was going above and beyond given your recent loss and I am sure you had a lot more important things on your mind than to jump onto Trip Advisor to write this review. It was really a no brainer in terms of cancelling you... More

My wife and I recently stayed at this motel, after staying in some real quality places over the previous two weeks we were not expecting much. It proved to be beyond our expectations, it was clean, quiet and the bed was very comfortable. The check-in was fast and the owner arranged a shuttle to the airport (at a very good... More

The owners are very nice and helpful. Location was easily accessible from the airport. We took the city bus from the stop right across the street from the hotel into Brisbane to walk around. The hotel was clean and comfortable, and quiet.

We're rather picky in our old age, and I was prepared to be critical of this motel. However, it proved to be fine when we had to lay over in Brisbane for 24 hours on a Sunday.

Literally booked in the morning and stayed that night. Very impressed with the motel, the owners are certainly thinking about how best to make an airport motel into a good experience! Small touches mean a lot for the tired traveller. Bed comfy, needed the blanket out of the wardrobe though! Sandgate road is busy during rush hour but pleasantly surprised... More

We stayed here on an overnight where we wanted quiet, comfort, parking and airport transfer. Great on all counts. The hosts are super-helpful, the parking cheap, the transfer seamless, the rooms well soundproofed and the beds comfortable. Can't go wrong.
