I enjoyed this hotel. The staff were friendly and very helpful and gave me a quiet room down the back of the block. The facilities were clean and well kept and the meals delicious, they even made a special order for me on request. The room was always serviced and neat when I arrived back from the day out.

We needed a place to stay in Rockhampton quickly as we had come up from Brisbane for a funeral. We stayed two nights, and chose True Blue because it was close to family. It looked a bit retro at first glance.......but turned out to be very clean, spacious and much better than expected for the price. We ate in the... More

When travelling from our home on the Atherton Tablelands down to NSW, we also make Rockhampton our first stop. For years, we have been staying at True Blue, as it's always so welcoming, clean, large under-cover area, and great meals can be supplied to the room. And as a bonus, this time we were given a Seniors discount. Highly recommended... More

Clean, spacious accommodation. Good value for money however if you don't have your own transport this motel may not be suitable for you. 1k walk along a busy highway (no footpath) to the nearest bus stop and $40 taxi ride from the airport! If you do have your own vehicle then I would highly recommend it.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay. The motel services the busy and expanding North Rockhampton business & industrial area, and is also an ideal stopover for those guests travelling between Brisbane & Townsville or Cairns. The True Blue Motel provides a full service to our guests with meals available 7 days. There is plenty of free parking for all... More

Accommodation in Rockhampton is expensive! and I felt Tru Blue was good value for our money. Travelling as a foursome we required a 2 bedroomed unit. Our needs were well met - 2 separate bedrooms each with an ensuite, with a very large kitchen/sitting area through a door connecting them. The rooms were very large, clean and comfortable, and would... More

Hi - thanks for the review. Yes our restaurant is spartan at the moment as we are just changing the theme. It has recently been repainted and new artworks installed. We are waiting on more and also new decor to come. We are hoping to showcase the 'True Blue' theme. Exciting! More

Good 3 to 4 star accommodation. Very large parking bays undercover which easily house large trailer plus a 4x4. There is a small patio with 'dog enclosure' at the rear of most units. Friendly management. We have stayed there before and will stay again.

I would thoroughly recommend this motel if you are travelling with a dog. Behind the back units there are individually enclosed and grassed areas which are excellent for housing a dog overnight, so it is not necessary for him to sleep in the car. There is also a grassy paddock behind the motel for pet walking. It makes such a... More

Clean Hotel, Friendly Staff and a good price. It's a run of the mill motor in but it's nice enough. It's not central to town and on the far side heading towards Mackay but if your passing through and need some sleep it's good.
