Our room was quiet until the refrigerated truck parked next door. It ran the motor all night. Not too far back into town past the university to pick up some takeaway for dinner. Rooms clean and the staff at reception was friendly and efficient. Pity the cooked breakfast arrived cold. Have stayed here several times before, and will give it... More

Great hospitality and advice from the owners. The room was spacious and clean. Very comfortable bed. Great parking for large vehicles. Recommend the back rooms, away from the highway. Will stay here again.

Very spacious and clean rooms with no road noise. Great hospitality. Stopped here on our way north so a good location for starting the next morning. Very comfortable and would definitely stay here again.

Very hard to get accommodation in Rockhampton during Beef Week. Because of a cancellation I managed to get a room here. Ten minutes out of town so no restaurants or Bars within walking distance.The rooms are large and clean but seem a bit tired. Meals at the attached restaurant are o.k.

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
