We stayed one night at the Glenmore Palms recently, having seen a billboard on the road south from Cairns. Very friendly and helpful gent behind the desk, great room, clean and tidy. Met my criteria with a very comfortable bed and a really good shower. We didn't eat at the motel restaurant but the menu looked good. In the morning... More

Being an older motel in the area, I found this motel to be great value for money. The room was extremely clean and well maintained. On opening the door the room smelt clean and inviting. The room was roomy and the bathroom very large. We had a very comfortable stay here and I would highly recommend it. The owner (I... More

Otherwise, nothing special. I've stayed here 3 or 4 times now as I come up only to go to CQU. The price is a bit high for what you get as the rooms are gloomy and dated. It actually feels a bit like a cabin from a campground - especially the bathroom. TV selection is awesome though and the WiFi... More

Anyone who's expierenced that long drive from Brisbane up to The Whitsundays even with two of you sharing know that its a long drive. We decided this year we would book at least one overnight stop each way. We chose the Glenmore Palms Motel in Rockhampton to allow us a good overnight break from driving straight through, getting too old... More

Guy at the reception desk was welcoming and friendly. Room was over priced $120 per night considering the mattress was a hard a rock and the pillows were waffer thin. Not a comfortable night at all. Upon leaving in the morning reception desk locked up even though it states 24 hour reception. No one to tell about the crap nights... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We Would stay again. The room was clean and had everything we need for an overnight stay. The showers were very hot and the bed was comfortable.

Handy motel in a convenient location on the North side of Rocky (between Caltex servo and Maccas on highway). Clean rooms, great restaurant and great food. Very friendly staff - couldn't be more helpful. Variety of takeaway shops nearby. I would definitely stay there again!

You are better trying to find a motel on the north side of Rockhampton these days, and this place is an average place. The staff are helpful but you need to go into the nearby shopping centre to get a decent coffe and realistically priced breakfast. Otherwise the rooms are clean and sufficient.

I stayed only one night on the 18th of May as I had a business meeting at Central Queensland University. The motel ideally situated as it is only a short walk away. As other reviewers have stated it is surrounded by facilities such as McDonalds, IGA and a variety of takeaway cafes. Reception staff were only too happy help. The... More

When we got into our room the first thing we saw was a dead cockroach on the floor. The toilet was not cleaned, the furniture and bedding was so out dated and old. The food at the resteraunt is poor quality and has a funny smell to it.. Overall our stay was uncomfortable and we will never ever be going... More
