This place is prefect for couples or small families staying overnight with Pets. The rooms are cheap but clean and have everything you need. I also enjoyed both their dinner and breakfast which was also cheap and yummy (especially as a counter/pub meal can be hard to get when

This is by far the WORST motel in Rockhampton. I agree with previous reviews, the service was appalling. I was treated very rudely from the moment of arrival to when I left. This motel IS NOT pet friendly. They advertise it to be pet friendly and then whack you with a fee for

Fallon Cappler, You were never treated rudely even when you phoned making threats. The reasons for the charges which you did authorise when you singed the check in form were explained to you and we also sent you phones of the damage and a copy of the receipt for the replacement microwave. I also told you I would test the microwave and it it damaged my heat pack I would refund the cost of the microwave to you. I did test it and it was fine except of the damage and the terrible burnt smell which is why we had to replace it. We also videoed the test if you would like a copy. It clearly states in reception that if you allow your pets on the bed there will be a $50.00 cleaning fee this is because our cleaners need to completely strip and wash all the bedding so the cost involved in the extra time, water, electricity and cleaning products involved to do this has to be paid for.In your case there was pet hair all over both beds in the room. As for the run down and dingy this is something we expect from guest that have done the wrong thing are are held accountable for it. If you felt that the microwave was dangerous and with the damage and bad smell you had caused WHY DIDN'T you speak to us when you were in reception when you checked out. YOU LEFT and said nothing.

Budget accommodation, nice & clean & presented, quite small especially if there were 3 people staying - as it was set up for. Small kitchen with microwave & fridge, usual cutlery & crockery available. Television on wall. No clock on bedside tables which was little annoying,
