We stayed there for 1 night. It is a lovely located motel out of the city. After a day's driving, we relaxed with a drink overlooking their garden & pool As we were required to commit to dinner immediately on check-in, we chose to eat at the the nearby pub (good food). The complimentary breakfast provided was well received -... More

As a motel it's perfectly acceptable. Staff really good, positioned on the main highway. The wifi here is good, rooms clean. Food was big on portions, average on taste. Nothing particularly to fault it on or to give high praise for. It's a well run motel, good for a nights rest or two to break up a long journey on... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful garden with the pool. It's been quite a few years since we stayed in Rockhampton and as the reviews were mostly positive we decided to stay in this Motel. We like the motel facilities and friendly staff but were a bit disappointed with the room because it wasn't as clean and comfortable as... More

I have stayed at this motel twice. Both times for family events. It was so good. The kids love the pool. The air-conditioning is great and quiet. The rooms are clean. Staff are fantastic and couldn't be more helpful. I consider the price very economical. When ever I go to Rocky it's now the only place I stay.

We have again stayed here again and cannot speak too highly of Comfort, Cleanliness, Ambience, Staff & Meals (what more is there to comment on). I notice there was a review about the second row of rooms that do not look over the pool. It is a completely different outlook over natural bushland that we find very relaxing for a... More

Booked a room in April 2013 for a stay in September. We were informed that due to the motel being extremely busy there were no rooms left around the central pool area. The room was out the back of the complex as far as you could go from reception so it seemed like it was all that was left. Room... More

Each year we come to Rockhampton for business and after staying at dodgy places in Rocky this is by far the best motel in town. Not only are the rooms current, spacious and clean but the rooms are surrounded by beautiful well-kept gardens and feature a swimming pool, outside eating area, conference centre and restaurant.
