The motel is spotless, and quiet, the staff are friendly, cheerful and accommodating. There is a shuttle service available, as well as short term parking (conditions may apply). The motels close proximity to... 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

We booked this motel to stay the night prior to our cruise departing. The 2 room family suite was extremely spacious and well maintained. It was no trouble for reception to heat up our dinner ( we'd brought it from home ) and deliver it to our room. We were able to leave our car on premises for a week... More

Fresh air is something you shouldn't be missing in a room. And if you can't even open up the window, especially when it smells like mould in the room, leaves usually a bitter taste to most guests. Communication regarding late check in was allright. They just leave the key for you in a safe. Hamilton restaurant strip close by. Not... More

Stayed at this hotel on origin night. The hotel is conveniently located close to Brisbane airport and the city. I found it a very friendly and cosy hotel with everything you need. Professionally run , & has its own airport shuttle bus. The staff were friendly and obliging. A very enjoyable stay.
