We booked a hotel down the road but they over booked and last second we were accommodated here. The staff were helpful, had good suggestions, the rooms were clean and fair sized for price. They provided complimentary beverages and made you feel at home. Would stay again

Nice rooms, helpful staff and quiet location. I stayed for business and the room had everything that I needed. They also gave me a breakfast pack so that I could do an early departure. An older style restaurant, but presented nice and clean and well located.

We were made to feel very welcome and greeted very nicely on arrival. Offered great advice and made sure to see if what we may need. good value. Would recommend this place. A bit far from rainbow beach (over an hour), but likely good for Harvey bay. Just some small things were missing from the room, like coffee cups. Instant... More

Great value and friendly service. The location is perfect for the traveller with a bunch of dining options located across the street and McDonalds on the corner for a coffee if you need to get away early.

Stayed here for one night on a long QLD road trip. I had been driving for 10hours so was looking forward to a good sleep. Unfortunately the road the hotel is located on is very busy, Trucks start before sunrise. Beyond that the room was clean and neat + the bed was comfortable.

A terrific value for money motel. The service is 5 star, efficient and friendly, the rooms are comfortable and very clean and the motel is really close to the CBD so you can walk everywhere and explore the place if you have a few hours to spare. Angie the manager pointed us into the direction of a gorgeous little cafe... More
