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.

Staff are so helpful, the meals delicious, the room spacious - great value for money. Little niceties in the room made the stay even better. Undercover parking was a bonus and the outside seating to enjoy the afternoon sun was great.

Decided to pull in because I was tired from driving. Fabulous location, didn't have to drive through rocky to get there as it's right at the beginning.

True Blue Motel has always been a place we've stopped over en route from north to south over many years. It's rooms are basic but comfortable and spotlessly clean, My only suggestion would be to have ceiling fans installed.

From the first welcome at the reception desk, through to the great spacious room and excellent dinner in the restaurant, our short one night stay was ideal.

We stayed 1 night on our way up the east coast, it was a convenient break between Hervey Bay and Airlie Beach. The room was clean and staff were welcoming.

I read with dismay your review stating that the restaurant wasn't going to open because it was quiet.

I have spoken with the staff on duty and... More
