I was a little worried when I booked this hotel as a 1 night stopover on our way to Heron Island as the reservations person assured me that $124 /night was the cost of their suite and we would get an excellent room, considering it was our honeymoon.
Well, when we arrived it was like stepping back into the '70's. However, the room was clean and had a small balcony overlooking some aluminium smelter (one of Gladstone's biggest exports)
We called reception to check if we had been given the correct room and she offered us an 'executive suite' which ended up being across the road in a small new motel style complex. Modern, but nothing to write home about.
We laughed it off and all in all this hotel is great if you are on your way to Heron Island, as most international visitors are. The beds were very comfortable - we had a fantastic nights sleep.
