We stayed one night in the family room because of its close proximity to the airport. The hotel was very easy to find. The room was basic but clean and comfortable and a good size for 2 adults and 2 children. There was a mini kitchenette in the room which could be handy for those staying longer. Breakfast was basic... More

We stayed one night with our 3 children after a late evening arrival into Brisbane from NZ. Late check in was easy to arrange, the room was clean and comfortable and the complimentary breakfast (for 2 people) was very nice. Good option if you are coming or going from Brisbane Airport.

We stayed overnight before an early flight out of Brisbane Airport. We did not have breakfast which I believe is complementary as we had to leave too early. Nice and handy to airport and cruise terminal - we will be staying again if we ever have early flights etc.

Room was fine and breakfast included but a bit overpriced compared to similar motels at which we stayed. The location is a bit remote from facilities if you did not have your own transport. Staff very friendly and amenable.

Room is good equipped, bathroom is very nice. A friendly and supporting staff. Included breakfast is called "light, but It contains everything needed. We stayed just one night, just for a stop over. Would choose again.

Stayed here for one night as we had an early flight, the lady at reception, Christine, was first class. We checked In very early and were given an upgrade. Christine was full of useful info about the hotel, neighbourhood and best way to get to the airport. Not the biggest of hotels. Clean fresh and very comfy bed, what more... More

Thank you for your feed back We are very busy with lots of people like yourself as being so close to the airport we are a convenient stop over. The close proximity to restaurants, shopping etc. Though still a very quiet location , not on busy main roads is the the big winner for us with our regulars. More

We used this motel because after a 30 hour journey from the uk we just wanted to get some sleep when we arrived. It is only 10 mins in a taxi ride from the airport about $25 but just across the road from the motel is the train station with excellent links to the city for a family ticket 2+2... More

Location is very close to the airport. Train directly across the road, that runs regularly. It does stop at 8 pm. On a busy road, traffic was much lighter in the evening. Building is definitely older looking than the pictures. Room was clean, as was bathroom and towels. When I checked in (around 3 -3:30 pm) the door was open... More

Thank-you Koby for your review. Yes our location is excellent so close to all public transport. And the train stopping of an evening is great as limits noise .

These would have to be 2 of the rudest people. They make out to be friendly but offer no assistance or help at all.
