Our flight from Coolangatta was cancelled and we needed a reasonably cheap room for the night. The manager Karen was lovely and helpful. Room was small and basic but for a small family room for AUD$190 we were very happy and comfortable. Had a great sleep and Karen organised a taxi for us for 5am so that was a great... More

I was very impressed by the size & comfort of the room. Modern plus the staff were very helpful in suggesting dining options for dinner. Location was convenient to the M1 & ideal stop-over on our trip home from Queensland.

Not the first time i have stayed here and wont be the last . Friendly greeting on arrival and very well laid out clean rooms . Far enough of the motorway to not hear noise , but close enough to get back on driving thru to Cairns
