“Avoid if at all possible”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

I stay in numerous hotels, but I feel like I have stepped back into my backpacking days. I feel like this is some dodgy pension that is charging exorbitant prices. I've paid $197 for the night & it isn't worth it. The room itself is clean & they have worked with what they have, but the red is horrendous. I stayed in room 608 & the lift only goes to level 5, so a walk up the stairs is necessary....no offer of help from staff just 'unfortunately you are on level 6, which means carrying your bag up there.' Great.
I was holding a work function here, to find the room was terrible. We were in Duthies Room. Down a dodgy looking hallway, the room dividers didn't close properly, so thankfully nobody was in next door. As soon as the sun set & about 5 mins into our presentation all these moths started flying about. Our guests (mostly women) were not impressed. Trying to maintain dignity & attention whilst the participants are trying to swat away the large moths wasn't easy. Some of our guests asked 'Why are you using this dump?' And these people are locals. They have given me suggestions for other places for next year.

When back into my room about 9pm, it sounded like there was a vacuum cleaner being used on the floor below. On top of that, what sounded like an industrial fan, keep cutting in and out. These happened numerous times during the night.

If you like cold air con, you will love this place. Even when you have the setting to 'heat' & turn it up as high as it would go you still freeze. I turned them both off & the room was still cold. Great in summer I'm sure.

The redeeming feature is the staff, they were very nice and friendly. It's not their fault the place has been left to run down.

I stayed there for 2 nights and found the rooms to be very comfortable and clean with the staff very helpful. Had breakfast included which was very good. I would recommend this hotel if staying in Rockhampton.

I've stayed here 2 nights on 2 separate occasions. Both times I thought the service was excellent and welcoming. I found the rooms to be well decorated and maintained however we did have to change rooms due to a faulty air con unit. The bistro/dining meals were enjoyable & also good value. The one criticism I have is that the adjacent parking is totally inadequate. There are not enough spaces and therefore the only option was to park in the adjacent bottle-shop car park. Although there is a 24 hour surveillance by the reception staff, it still felt unsafe going to/from the car after dark.

Room Tip: Check in early so you can grab a good parking spot

Stayed here overnight and found it to be great value for money. I was traveling with my Dad and the staff went out of there way to find an extension cord for his sleep apnea machine thank-you. Our overnight room rate was very reasonable and included a hearty breakfast. I would definitely stay here again.

Very friendly staff, lack of parking an issue, a bit of reassurance with police station across road. First room had a noisey a/c was moved into another room, couldn't locate remote for TV and both lamps globes blown. Little issues that easily rectified. Can tell it's an old joint, food good and tasty had everything we needed. Would stay again of visiting rocky again

I have previously reviewed the Leichhardt and after having stayed here for 3 nights in Sept '13, thought I should write again. The hotel really hasn't changed much, however, I did encounter some issues with the showers and the beds. The showers are temperamental at best and the drain in the bath does not empty very quickly, leaving pools of water in the bath whilst showering. I have actually stayed here several times since my last review and have noticed this in many of the rooms.

I also noticed a couple of the beds of late are getting a bit old and resemble a hammock i.e., high on each side and rather low in the middle. That being said, the cleanliness of the rooms and price is reasonable and the service of staff was professional.

I would still stay here if I return to Rockhampton, but the rooms do need a little attention to bring them back up to standard.

Room Tip: Try to get one away from the lifts, the bell when the lift arrives is loud and can be heard through...

Wanted to stay in the CBD and this looked as good as any of the others.
An older hotel that has been renovated not too recently. The room was clean and quiet even though it was on the street front. Very hard to park in the carpark so parked on the street where there was plenty of room.
Okay for an overnight stay.
