Have stayed here a few times. Price ok but the breakfast is good value. Used to be $5 now $10 but still better than maccs. Rooms clean a bit dated but good size. Would recommond if you are travelling though

I have stayed here several times and the hotel is very good. This time I didn't stay as a guest but I had dinner at the restaurant and as usual the food is good. Order food and drinks at the bar first. Prices are fair.

Good value, clean room and friendly staff. Even though it's on the main road it wasn't a drama driving out in the morning. Coming from the North it is well situated on the south side of the city and you don't have to fight the traffic to continue your journey. bathroom is clean and towels huge and fluffy. BWS next...

This is the best in value for money in Rockhampton. I first discovered in 1997 and have stayed many times since. Have not been here for about 8 years. The rooms have been upgraded. My bathroom was original but still OK. Big quiet rooms. Great value. $10 hot breakfast is a bonus. Friendly staff. Just book now.

We were in Rockhampton for our granddaughter's formal in February and it just happened to be the weekend that cyclone Marcia also paid a visit. The motel has new owners and we found them very friendly and helpful. They came around during the cyclone bringing torches and offering to make us sandwiches when the power went out. They couldn't do... More

The food in the restaurant was great . The best meal and value on my trip . The bed was really hard. I think you should be able to leave the aircon on when leaving a room but not here as you have to pull the plug out of the wall as it has your key welded to it. The... More
