Stayed here for a night before catching the flight out of Gold Coast. Should have just stayed here for the whole trip. The room was clean, comfortable, and roomy. The location was just outside of Gold Coast, which is convenient enough. The staff was friendly and accommodating as well.

Being sometimes hard to find great service in smaller Australian hotels, it was very pleasant to stay at this hotel. Right from the initial phone call Karen and Steve were most helpful and even arranged free transport to take me to the airport. Lovely refurbished room, great values for money. As a business traveler, I will most certainly be back.

Solo traveller doing a road trip. Booked a queen bed and it was quite roomy and luxurious for the $110 I paid. I liked that they had Foxtel/Austar so I could watch the cricket. Bed was great, shower was good and there is covered parking (although if it is bucketing with rain it doesn't help). If your stuck with where... More

We booked at last minute looking for an overnight stay on a conference visit. We were pleasantly surprised and the ratings were accurate. The room was spacious and tidy with plenty of places to plug in phones and pads to charge. WI FI was free and good. The bed was great and we slept very well. The high level of... More

We only stayed one night as it was convenient for catching a plane early the next morning. Reception check-in was great. The room was neat & tidy. Nothing flash but presentable. Being so close to the airport, plane noise was a little annoying but not too bad and it stops fairly early in the evening. Does start early in the... More

We accidently ended up here for a night and was pleasantly surprised. The room was clean, comfortable and well maintained. The owner Karen really made our stay - just a great lady that would bend over backwards to help you (she represents what Aussies are all about). Loved the brick walled rooms, great little tables out front to enjoy a... More

Just did an overnight stop here before catching a plane the next day. Lady owner was so lovely. Seemed like she really took pride in running the hotel. Everything was clean and super comphy beds. Small pool was so refreshing. Thanks for the great night sleep.

I would like to just mention the owners of this motel. On a night where the Airport was closed due to flash flooding and they were inundated with guests and weather, they extended to me probably the best customer service I have ever experienced outside of a 5 star hotel, and even then, they were better than most. They are... More

We stayed here twice over the last two weeks for two nights. We were picked up at the airport and taken back to the hotel, both times. Great rooms, new beds, but it is Karen that makes this place. She goes the second mile to make a stay here fantastic. The only knock I have against this place is the... More
