Olde world charm is s bit faded, but the room was clean and comfortable. Wooden dressers, old fashioned bed frames with modern mattresses and air conditioning. Despite council works outside it was also very quiet. Dinner (steak and chips ) in the steakhouse was a little ordinary but breakfast very nice in the Parker room.

A great place, central CBD, food is excellent, staff are freindly,choose the Motel rooms or stay in the old hotel fully refurbished, excellent choice if your travelling for business. I have stayed extensively in Rockhampton, this is so far ahead for all round, location, food and accommodation, the best part is the low prices.

One of my favourite venues for a cold beveridge and a good pub meal with friends and wasn't dissapointed when I visited the Criterion again whilst in Rocky with colleagues for business. The staff are friendly and service is excellent and meals very tasty and reasonably priced.

We stayed in a motel unit which suited us perfectly. It was spacious well appointed including a spa bath, a comfy bed and in theme with the hotel yet modern at the same time. It also had a balcony with river views and a gated carpark. There is no cooking permitted (so no toaster) though there is tea and coffee... More

Stayed here with 3 friends during a roadtrip up the east coast. Reasonably happy with it. It was clean and comfortable, which was the main things we were looking for. They did not have the promised 4th pullout bed, this wasn't a big problem for us, but if it bothers you, make sure you clearly book ahead. Building had a... More

As other reviews have stated, yes it is outdated and needs cosmetic repairs. But seriously, are you buying the property or staying there. I found the condition to be a touch of authenticity. After all, his is a historical building. I did take a suggestion by a reviewer to stay away from rooms near the entertainment on weekends. Other than... More

This is a great pub, friendly staff, heaps of memorabilia (pictures) on the walls. Good food cold beers and it's only a short walk over the bridge to caravan park. This pub also has rooms up stairs and is less than a minute walk to the main street of rockhampton.

One of the oldest buildings in Rockhampton, this hotel oozes character from all directions. We got a corner room, very spacious and with river views, opening on to a veranda (shared), with 15 foot high ceiling and old marble fireplace. Magical place to stay at a great price. Food and drink available, only thing to watch is the live entertainment... More

We stayed here for 2 nights because my husband wanted to stay in an old hotel. It is circa 1880 so definitely old and had lots of character. Our room was very large with a queen bed & 2 singles. The bathroom was very small hardly enough room to get around the door into the toilet and the door wouldn't... More
