Only stayed one night, room was fine for what we needed (no foxtel but not a big issue for us), hotel quiet at night, good central location close to restaurants. Swimming pool in the carpark, so not great, but we hadn't intended using it anyway.

Stayed for one night only - no complaints, everything was perfect and as described. There was an incident in which I got locked in the bathroom due to a dodgy door handle, but we informed reception and the lady was very apologetic, and all was fine. WiFi was a bit spotty, but did not matter as we were only there... More

This establishment will need to lift its game. We arrived as a group for a weekend stay. First they could not find the bookings. Then when they did they could not find confirmation regarding breakfast. We were warned by a fellow guest that hopefully when we got our room we wouldn't walk into someone else's.... WRONG. Three of us all... More

Nice enough for a night or two. The room was clean and mid sized. The TV didn't work but we were only on a night stop. Plenty of cafes and restaurants on the same street and within walking distance. Free parking and friendly staff. Would stay again.

We have stayed here previously each year and can say that the restaurant food has improved dramatically with our compliments to the chef who was a lovely man and happy to say hello to us. Unfortunately the TV in our room did not work and finding or phoning the receptionist in the middle of the day was not easy and... More

Good location in the town. Near to all amenities including eating and drinking emporiums. Handy for supermarkets too. The rooms are light and bright and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. Situated in a good position for gaining access to and from Rockhampton. Free wifi access. Laundry for guests to use.

Hotel is located on the other side of "The Strand", separated by a bridge. The hotel is located in a street with a number of bas and restaurants. Clean, sufficiently large room with coffee and free WiFi. High value or money

This will be a nice modern looking establishment - soon. At the moment it is under renovation and the place is like a construction zone.No carpets in the hallways and the smell of glue is overwhelming.
