What a dive this hotel is, I would get a divorce immediately if my husband took me here for my honeymoon, but each to their own. The hotel is located on a highway on the outskirts of Rockhampton. It is nowhere near or central to anything except maybe the huge trucks roaring past your room.
We only stayed here because all the other hotels in Rocky were booked out, hence why did this hotel have rooms available. ?? We needed to have a day room to put our luggage in and for me to have a rest in whilst hubby worked for the day.
Our room was entered by a closed in corridor, which had black vertigo slashed blinds, so when you closed them for privacy the room was in total darkness, and you were trapped in the mine shaft, at midday you had to put all the lights on. The room was standard hotel size with a horrible, ghastly double bed with a floral outdated bedspread with pillows that felt like an elephant had sat on them.
The bathroom was small with chipped tiles with one wired window, which gave off a little light to brighten the prison cell. Tea and coffee facilities were available but I chose to get out quickly from the hovel and have coffee in town. If you happen to be a smoker, well you will not have a problem knowing this establishment is smoke free. There are signs posted on every door, in the corridors, around the pool, on your bed, table, reception, and even on the garbage bins. I guess the owners think people are illiterate.
If you do have to stay in Rocky then I suggest you try the Travel Lodge in town or the Coffee House Apartments, they are central and at least look reasonable. There is nothing much to do in this city, so if you are thinking of just visiting I suggest to forget it and go to Mackay instead.
