Some places we stay at when you first walk in have an odour, musty or mouldy. Here was so clean and fresh with no perfumes to mask any odours. The room was comfortable and the bed was to my partners liking. The bathroom was small but that's how it was done when the motel was built. The fridge couldn't keep... More

My car had a major Breakdown close to Maryborough, so with the facilities and repair places I chose this town to be towed to..lol. I chose this place as with at least 3 nights to stay without a car it was very convenient within walking distance of complete town amenities. The room was clean and well set out pleasant furnishings,... More

We booked a hotel down the road but they over booked and last second we were accommodated here. The staff were helpful, had good suggestions, the rooms were clean and fair sized for price. They provided complimentary beverages and made you feel at home. Would stay again

Nice rooms, helpful staff and quiet location. I stayed for business and the room had everything that I needed. They also gave me a breakfast pack so that I could do an early departure. An older style restaurant, but presented nice and clean and well located.

We were made to feel very welcome and greeted very nicely on arrival. Offered great advice and made sure to see if what we may need. good value. Would recommend this place. A bit far from rainbow beach (over an hour), but likely good for Harvey bay. Just some small things were missing from the room, like coffee cups. Instant... More
