Great little hotel, close to cruise ship terminal, airport & walking distance to Eat Street Markets. Room & beds were comfortable. We would definitely stay there again. I'm pretty sure they offer a free shuttle bus as well!

A lovely hotel located close to the cruise terminal and short distance to airport. Excellent service of the staff. Our room was spacious and clean. Free shuttle drop off to airport was handy and helpful. Will come back when next visit Brisbane.

Lovely staff/owners made for a pleasant check in to a really clean room. I booked a triple room but had a fold out single bed which I think was crammed into a double room. Queen bed was very comfy. Clean bathroom. Just very small and had to dodge 2 chairs and single bed. Close to warf restaurants. I think good... More

I can't rate this hotel highly enough. The rooms are large, clean, very comfortable, amazingly quiet and so close to the airport. We stayed here early in June so we could transit early the next day to the international airport which is just 6klm away. The hosts were remarkably helpful with upgrading our room so that I could have a... More

Extremely comfortable new beds with pillow top mattresses, new pillows and quilts make for a very cosy night at this motel. There is also a very roomy shuttle bus to transport guests to the airport free of charge. It fitted 4 adults, 4 bags and 6 surfboards easily.
