It is on one of the main roads which has twin lanes so traffic can be noisy. Good location aside from this as it is walking distance the the shopping centre and some local dining venues. Rooms clean and bed comfortable. Restaurant is not open to dine in but you can order room service. Tried to do this by ringing... More

I had to alter the booking a couple of times & the reception were always willing & helpful. Customer service wins me over every time. The room was small and a little dated though it was clean & the beds were comfortable. It is located back from the road so the noise levels are not an issue. The a/c probably... More

We have stayed here on and off over the past few years. Met the new managers last time we were here and they told us of the vision they had for the place. Well we have been here a few days now in a lovely , well appointed, clean and modern room. Sparkling pool so much nicer than I have... More

We have stayed at the David Motel several times as we have family who are close to the David. We have never had anything but praise for the service and the staff. The David is always clean tidy and all the staff willing to help in any way they can. The Breakfasts and meals are always 100% . We are... More

We recently stayed at The David Motel on our way to Cairns. The advertised restaurant wasn't open for dinner and when we queried it was told there were plenty of places close to get dinner, we didn't even ask about breakfast. The staff were wonderful especially the housekeeper. Our room was clean and the bed very comfortable. A microwave is... More

We were needing accommodation at very short notice as our vehicle was towed to Rockhampton, my family had an extremely pleasant stay and the staff were fabulous. Not only did they quickly arrange a very nice room but they offered to give us a lift to our car which was being fitted with a new gearbox the next day! Now... More

I stayed here for the first time with a friend and initially I was really impressed. The rooms were neat and tidy (the bathroom was a little grotty though), the grounds were nicely kept and every single staff member was wonderful bar the female manager - we simply asked for a new bath towel and was scolded and threatened that...

Upon arriving with my husband a 3 year old when we entered the room The room smelt like nil odour trying to cover up the cigarette smoke and the air con was so noisy it was like sleeping in a refrigerator truck, so not worth the $130.00 we ended up cancelling our return trip and booked in else where.

As first time stayers, we would certainly return and will recommend The David to anyone requiring a bed for a night or two in Rocky. The staff were friendly and obliging, being extremely helpful to us in our hour of need. Our room was very clean, was serviced daily with fresh towels, tea, coffee etc., the bed was comfy. From...

Accommodation in Rockhampton is all a little inflated in price, and $108 per night is not bad for the city, even if that seems a bit pricey compared to what you would get in other cities. We pulled in at about 10pm when we needed a room for the night whilst passing through, (a lot of other hotels/motels were full),... More
