If only I could give "0"! Not only was our room a junkie fortress with dirty stained carpet, sticky bed side tables, a peeling couch, marked walls like a crime scene and stinky like an ash tray- at 7 months pregnant I do not enjoy walking out to my car to find it smashed and broken in too at 7am...

The best thing about this hotel was its location. It's located beside the pretty Nerang River and central to day trip locations on the Gold Coast hinterland. While the rooms were adequately furnished they were dated and stained with either mould or general scuffs and wear and tear marks. The bedding and towels were however clean and pressed. The toiletries... More

Although we just stayed for the night we really enjoyed our stay at this motel. It's not fancy but it's comfortable, clean, friendly and the location was right. The bed was comfortable, shower was hot, the staff were really helpfull. Would definitely recommend this motel, especially when considering the price.

I stayed here with a few girlfriends the night before my wedding and the night of my wedding with my new husband. The rooms were clean and we had lovely river views from our rooms. The girls at receptions were lovely and very helpful. It's not a 5 star resort but for the price you pay (very reasonable) you can't... More

Room photo online was not what we were given. Rooms need to be badly updated. Room we stayed in was very dirty, hadn't been cleaned at all. Furniture was sticky due to lack of cleaning and polishing. Wouldn't stay again next time we come down to Nerang. Restaurant was excellent. Food delicious, very clean and up to date.

We stayed here on a Saturday night as we were having trouble finding reasonably priced accommodation for one night!! We were very disappointed! The room was dark and smelly, and there was a hideous smell coming up through the drains in the bathroom! There was blood splattered on the bathroom window and a dead insect on the sheets! We had...

At the budget end of the market and deservedly so, but within that bracket it represents good value. The rooms are decidedly basic but adequate. Initially we were worried that noise and behaviour from the main pub would be a problem, not least as the Hinterland Hotel is a major live music venue in the area, but in fact it... More

Our door didnt lock, the staff tried to repair but no luck. We were moved to the room next door and given $25 in vouchers to use for drinks,... More
