“We would not go back if they paid us!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2011

We frequently go to Rockhampton to visit an aged relative. We had previously stopped at the David Motel....since 1998. In February 2011 we booked in for 2 nights@ $108.00 a double, not cheap for a provincial city. We had a continental breakfast delivered & we asked for extra condiments, there being only 1 of each: marmalade, honey, vegemite, for 2 people. This simple request was refused. The manager told us we were "greedy." We took exception to his attitude & he told us to leave. We had to pack up. He suggested we go to the Ambassador down the road. Unbelieveable way to do business. He has lost us! He did credit our prepaid night to our credit card. Dreadful experience.

Dear Sir/Madam,
Please be advised that Darren & Ann Hunne have recently taken over The David Motor Inn and have re-furbished the restaurant (Now called Eclipse) and the rooms and service levelsand have fixed a lot of the problems the place had and are in the process of fixing it all.
We would be honored if you would give us the chance to re try our business as we are sure we will give you a more memorable stay.
Kind regards
Darren & Ann Hunne
