Stopped in here on our way through from Townsville to Brisbane. Found them through Google, called them and they were cheaper than anywhere else for our family of 5 by about $30. They offered racq membership discount. Very friendly, recommended great place to eat, even opened up the pool for us on arrival for the kids to swim! We will... More

The first time I have stayed here and have to say it is great value. It is handy to so many restaurants and takeaway places and was very friendly and quiet. I thought being on the main road in to Rockhampton it would have traffic noise but I did not experience any. The rooms are larger than your standard motel... More

We needed a budget place to stay for 2 nights after a very long drive to Rocky & back. We shared it with another couple of friends. It was clean tidy and staff were helpful and friendly. We didn't need anything fancy so it suited our needs but we were happy with the facilities the room had - tea coffee... More

We have stayed at The Golden Fountain multiple times, and each time the room has been clean. There has only been one time where the beds haven't been made up, but as soon as we told management, they nearly ran to come make the beds. There is no separation of bedrooms and kitchen, if you can call it that, as... More

My wife and I have been coming to Rockhampton for the past 8 years. We decided to stay here as a shotgun decision as we were driving past and for something different but we never will again. Judging by past reviews it seems the place must have changed in recent times. The manager was rude, no smile or welcome, barely... More

Overnight stay on the way north - room was spacious, clean and quiet, even though the motel is on the highway. Good undercover parking - everything was well organized and setup for the traveler, you get the impression the management cares... Nothing fancy but nothing missing - perfect for the purpose. I accidently left my expensive Tempur pillow behind and... More

Stayed here for one night in April 2014. John in reception was his usual pleasant, efficient self. I booked directly though the hotel's website. $95 for a single and paid directly through a link to Paypal. Stayed in room 17, which is near the back of the property away from the highway. I have previously stayed in several different rooms... More

This is the best motel we have stayed in.We just pulled in to see if there were any vacancies on our way up to Townsville, and were greeted warmly by the man at the counter. We booked a room and were given a small carton of fresh milk for coffee. The room was clean and tidy, it wasn't a 4... More

Almost art deco. 2 kids had own bed and one had rollaway trundle which was better than most trundles provided. We ate out from local takeway (thai was worst ever had) but you... More
