Having to travel 5 hours for a funeral, it was lovely to have such a calming place to stay. We needed a wheel-chair friendly room. The owner was fantastic, went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Not many motels offer disabled access. Really happy with the tariff. Clean and tidy....will definitely stay there again

The motel has new managers who are totally revamping the property. The previous people did let things get a bit rundown but things are already underway to make the rooms modern and comfortable again. I've been told it will be ready for my family Christmas holiday

Despite a very pleasant and helpful owner this motel (nothing like a resort) is average and relatively expensive. Spacious and comfortable but badly in need of a makeover. At $123 a night I paid more than I do for a 4 1/2 star hotel including parking in central Brisbane. The restaurant was closed and we had to drive into town...

Pros: Service, cleanliness, comfort and availability. The staff were very helpful with good local advice and friendly. The room was comfortable and clean. Was looking forward to eating at the restaurant as we have been there before and the meal was delicious, but were told it was closed. But we still had a lovely meal at the local country club...

Room 7 is considered a disability room by the owners. Perhaps they could give more thought as to what is required to make disabled and elderly people comfortable and safe in this room. There are grab rails in the bathroom, and the doors have been widened, but more is needed to make this room a 'disability room'. The most serious...

The couple who run this motel are just lovly! Happy for a good chat, plus the husband ran out with my dress I had. Accidently left on the back of the door!

The room was very basic , yet the price was quite high. The restaurant attached to the hotel was advertising lobster and after ordering it we were very disappointed - most of the dish was cheese - we had to drive everywhere, there was nothing within walking distance.

This motel is very clean and inexpensive, however desperately needs a make ohver as the tacky central American theme does not suit the area. The garden area out the back is great and inviting but the driveway needs a good weeding.
