I was looking for a place near the airport for our last night as we had an early flight out the next day. This place was recommended to me by a friend saying that friends of his always stayed here when they came to Brisbane.
Jan and Greg were both very welcoming. The room (we were in room 2) was nicely furnished and decorated. Huge TV. The curtains are sunblock and keep the room nice and dark. The bed was comfortable and it was incredibly quiet!! Can't believe that Kingsford Smith Drive is a street away yet we heard nothing of the traffic noise. The motel is located in a back street.
There is a swimming pool and even a half tennis court.
Brett's Wharf is about 14 minutes walk away and we took the cat down to Southbank, got off and had a walk around for a little while then hopped back on again and returned, all for $5.60 each.
Racecourse Road is 5 mins walk away and there are quite a few restaurants to choose from.
It was about 6-7km to the domestic airport. If you are returning a hire car, there is a petrol station just down the road (ask Jan or Greg to explain exactly where), you can top up and then drive to the airport and the fuel gauge won't move a bit.
I am so glad our friend recommended this place, I can't imagine that any of the flasher joints could have been any better.
