“Value for Money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Stayed here for a family trip. Room faced busy main street, so was noisy at night. Comfortable room and motel was in convenient location. Shower/bath was not very safe and difficult to shower properly due to location of shower head over bath. Bar fridge was tiny and freezer section was slightly broken.

The showers didn't have hot water - sad for a weary traveller.

The air conditioner was very old and very noisy. The neighbouring people sat on a seat directly out the front of our window and smoked and shouted into the night.

There was only one blanket for two beds, and it all felt a bit run down. Definitely not what I would expect for four stars.

I travel with work and stay in a lot of motels. My stay here was on 31.5.12. My guess is that there has been a change of hands since earlier reviews that were acceptable. English is obviously not their first language as communcation was poor and confusing. They seemed more concerned about getting the money up front than about service or quality. I ordered bangers and mash for dinner, which is delivered to your room. They obviously didn't have a clue as it was the worst I have eaten for such a basic meal. No biscuits and very little sugar in the room. When breakfast arrived there was only one slice of bread fortoast compared with the standard two everywhere else. The sheets had the appearance they had been slept in before and not washed. If its the only motel in Rockhampton with a vacancy, keep travellng to the next town.

Staff on check in had difficulty in understanding English which was frustrating.

The rooms were of reasonable size however the decor is 1970s. Bed was only reasonable. Air conditioning is a wall unit that was not on when we arrived and the room was 30 degrees and took 1 hour to cool down.

Car parking spot was outside the room and covered like a car port.

It was noticeable that Rockhampton motels were nearly all booked on this night however on my next trip I would not be looking to stay at this motel.
