Stayed here with friends. Well priced, good clean rooms and friendly staff. Very welcoming. Beer prices cheaper than pub. Short stroll to restaurants and shopping. Steak house and pub across road. Highly recommend if visiting Gladstone

We stayed for one night each end of a trip to Heron Island. Very clean rooms with all we needed. The new Proprietors were friendly and helpful. Wifi easy to access and free. We walked to the ferry and supermarket very close with many different eateries also close. Would definitely stay again

Managers were great offered advice where to eat for dinner and had charge backs in place at the local yacht club which was an easy walk. Motel was comfortable and offered value. Would definitely stay again

We stayed at this hotel for one night in December 2015 as part of our 3 week holiday to Australia. We were on our way to Heron Island the next day. The hotel is overpriced, stunk of cleaning products and was still dirty, we couldn't wait to leave. There is nothing in Rockhampton, in fact we didn't feel particularly safe... More

Please accept my apology for this incident, I have worked in Hotels/Motels for over 25 years and this is the first time I have ever not booked a taxi for a guest.

We were only in Gladstone for one night so choose to stay in a modest cheaper hotel. A big mistake. The room was clean and spacious however highly overpriced for the basic nature of the room. On arrival we asked the hotel manager to book an early transfer (5.30am) to the airport. He ensured us that he would do that... More

Room was clean & reasonably large, close to a wide range of dining options or the Valley shopping centre. Quick tip- save money & book on line I could get a room online for $99 (+$5.50 credit card cost) but a walkin costs $120.

This hotel has large reasonably clean rooms and a great location in the centre of Gladstone walking distance to woolworths, the main street and bars and hatch club (all within about 1km)...or just a cheap taxi fare. The staff are really helpful and friendly and they had a charge back for meals to the queens hotel bar and grill directly... More

Very exhausted after a full day travelling. The name of the motel inspired us!! The price was quoted at $190 but receptionist offered a discount to $140 it was close to a tavern & husband said if it was clean to take so we could go & have a well earned drink. On initial inspection it didn't look too bad... More
