We iniiially thought this was just a good basic motel although with a nice pool. However, there were hair bands under the benches, so obviously the vacuuming wasnt so flash. We then found food in the microwave, so they obviously do not clean the microwave after each guest. Not that impressed.

My partner and colleague have recently driven down to Rockhampton to give our neighbours a hand after Cyclone Marcia. I, of course, did all the calling around to make sure there was power for the boys to come back to an air-conditioned room for a comfortable sleep after a hard days work. When I called I was told that the... More

We stopped in Rock Hampton for the night before hitting the Capricorn highway. Its what you would expect from an old Motel, smelt old although was clean. The bed was tiny and our feet hung over the edge, maybe OK for 2 little people, I ended up sleeping on the single that was in the room and had a good... More

Although booked early in to the Fitzroy they pushed us out to this their sister motel. We were a little stuck as there was no way we could find an alternative with no access to the internet and not knowing the area. We had booked when still in England and had no information with us on other motels in the... More

At $95 it was a very expensive $40 room .Outdated wouldn't even come close to describe the condition of this motel .I would not stay there again,even if I had to drive an extra 200 klms. Had a surprise in the morning with a truck driver being able to look into my room thru the bathroom window without any curtains

You get what you pay for, or in my case, less.... Counter staff ok. After a really long day on the road had hoped for a cleaner place to sleep. Curtains didnt fully cover windows so privacy was a problem on the ground floor. Lots of noise from levels above my room, lots of road noise. Chains on the doors... More
