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

Huge clean rooms and well away from traffic noise. One of the better motels in Rockhampton and very good value for money. Location is not close to town but it has a restaurant with attached pub and liquor store next door. Buffet breakfast for $5. A very good Motel.

Of all the motels we've stayed in over the years, this is the only one that has had a bath in the bathroom. The room itself had heaps of space which is rare...it had a walk-in robe area which was also large and had a vanity area which was perfect for my daughter to do her hair and make-up for... More

Stayed here for a night whilst passing through on the Bruce Hwy. Was clean and well maintained. Staff were very friendly and we had a good night sleep in the comfy bed. Would recommend if passing through.
