Stopped at the True Blue on the way North, great hospitality and the rooms are spacious and clean. With seating at the back you can enjoy your morning coffee s in a serene setting with mountain views. Will stay again.

We were travelling through Rockhampton on our way north. We booked this the day before and found very little availability. I think there are a lot of out of town workers here on clean-up from the recent cyclone. In my opinion, a lower range property with a mid range price. Not very convenient to restaurants if you don't want to... More

Corporate Queen Suite $140 - we were desperate for a dog friendly accomodation whilst travelling through Rocky (I believe this is one of two). Owner / Staff were extremely friendly & very accomodating. We travelled with two cars and a van and were given rear accomodation where we could park all just along side the unit (our loaded ute did... More

We travelled with two large dogs- a golden retriever and a kelpie. The owners put us in a room at the back of the motel away from other guests so we could tie them up outside. There was space to take them for a bit of a walk. The owners were very friendly and personable. The lady owner made us... More

We have two precious sooky poddles who need to travel with us - even on business trips. Finding accomodation that caters for pets before we travel requires some nights of research. We found True Blue on various website. Fortunately on arrival we found it was a very clean spacious older motel just outside the hustle and bustle of Rokhampton on... More

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
