The restaurant was closed (don't know if open at all) I was disappointed as chose for convenience, and then was told no room service or breakfast, as chef sick. After long trip I was tired. Lady at reception was nice and helpful. The room did not feel clean as should be and bathroom had mould and dirt. Was disappointed.

For the price we weren't expecting much and as an older property some renovations should be done. In saying that, our room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The shower was good with the hot water almost instant. A microwave oven would be handy and you have to ask at reception for a toaster which we have done nowhere... More

This is a very average 3 star motel in a city that has much better on offer for the price we paid. It was clean and the bed was comfortable but that's about all I can say about it. No negatives really except tiled floor (prefer carpet) and pretty awful giant print of an elephant (see picture on their website).... More

After traveling from cairns through the night with our 1 & 2 year children we arrived in rockhamton at 9:30am and came straight to the motel. They went out of their way to service our room quickly and we were in at 10am even though our checkin was at 2pm. Rooms were great just what we needed and very clean.... More

Recently I've been staying in a lot of motels in regional Qld. This one is a complete standout for all the right reasons. Good size and very clean rooms. The staff are super friendly. Free wifi is great, locations is great just across the road from a Woolworths and other shops. Was really refreshing to find a place that was... More

I was not at all impressed with the owner/manager Ann she was rude and made me feel an inch tall. Terrible over priced food. They were doing loud work in the yard banging noises at 6am. They have no idea how to run a business and I highly recommend you stay else where. There are much nicer hotels for cheaper... More

I stayed 2 nights. Friendly, helpful service. Lovely pool area. Clean room with nice extras. Value for money and would certainly stay again. The table and chairs outside each room are a nice touch. It's not brand new but it has been redecorated tastefully. The only criticism would be the over enthusiastic use of room deodoriser by the cleaning staff.

The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel was ideally located for were we needed to be, it was clean, the aircon worked well, yes the room could do with an update but the bed was comfy. Even with road works outside in the main road, we slept well.

If you need a place to stay and nowhere else is vacant then stay one night. Cleanliness is terrible. Dust an inch thick on the lamp shower screen surround full of grime. Inside of shower had previous person bits in it. Sorry but not nice at all.
