“Perfect for our needs at a reasonable price.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2011

We needed accommodation as we were vistiting Brisbane and attending a wedding at nearby Sirromet Winery, Mount Cotton. Cleveland Motor Inn provided all that we needed and was clean and comfortable. Travelling with 2 small children it was great to have the extra bed and kitchen facilities in the room. This is a classic motor inn set up, but semi updated with modern bed linen and renovated bathroom (great shower head!). Porta cot and bedding provided no problems.

Short walk to supermarket for supplies, short walk to great thai restaurant nearby. Fast food outlets only minutes away. 10 minutes drive to Sirromet Winery which with 2 sleeping children tired out from a wedding was fantastic! Located more in commercial area so not near the beach, but perfect for our needs. Nice drive and playgrounds/parks along the foreshore between Cleveland, Victoria Point and Redlands Bay.

Dealings whilst making booking and with checkin in where very professional. Management pleased to answer my (many) questions via email. I would consider using again if having to stay in the area.

We have stayed at this motel on several occassions now, it surely is comfortable accommodation, we stay in a Superior Queen Room, reasonable rates and free parking. One may find the decor a little dated, but the rooms are airey and spotlessly clean, there is an inviting pool and many choices of restaurants etc close by...one will need a car...although walking is effortless as there are no hills and an attractive pathway takes you into Cleveland Central and the station in around 5 minutes or so.
Book early if your planning a weekend stay, Liz will tell you weekends tend to be quite busy as Cleveland is a pleasant weekend away from the bustle of Brisbane City, and of course Cleveland is the main ferry terminal for a day trip to Strabroke Island...
We highly recommend this motel, tucked away in Cleveland on Brisbane's beautiful Bayside

Room Tip: Superior rooms have some nice added features...

We stayed here for 4 days in March / April. We just loved this place. It was welcoming and the rooms were well furnished and clean. We overlooked the pool area which was a little oasis and the landscaping was well looked after with its own resident koala in a nearby tree. The proprietors, Iain and Liz went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. Its location was perfect for visits up and down the coastline and the ferry to Stradbroke Island. It was also close to good restaurants. We would stay here again should we return to the area.

Travelled from Adelaide to visit family in Thornlands. Noted not a lot of accommodation choices in this area but found this best suited our needs. Over the ensuing week we found the staff were friendly and accommodating, particularly Iain who was always seemed to be scurrying about but willing to assit when needed. Loved the full on shower, but was wary of not sliping on the smooth tiled shower recess. Thought it strange they would also use a glass soap dish within the shower. For saftey I would think a bath mat and plastic soap holder might warrant some consideration. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. There was a nice pool area, table and chairs outside our rooms, and the location was great. Close to shops, and restaurants and other facilities. Purely on personal points and preferences the room given the furnishings was smaller than I would prefer and somewhat dated. Having plates and cutlery was handy but washing up in the small bathroom sink became tiresome over the week. We did not use the airconditioning as it was too noisy when sleeping. Being large in stature getting a comfortable chair is always a challenge when travelling but thats more my problem and not the accommodations. Overall however, the negatives are not of such a nature that would preclude me from recommending staying at the Cleavland Motor Inn. It is reasonably priced with Liz and Iain doing a fine job looking after their guests. I look forward to a return visit.

Enjoyed our short stay. Motel in a wonderful location, so close to shops and Raby Bay restaurants. Rooms were very clean and lovely bedding. Very friendly place.
But
Gardens and the pot plants, have seen better days, needs a good weed and clean around the pool area, was a little aged and very ugly, which was such a shame when your room is looking over that area...very poor state in the outdoor maintenance

Thank you for your review Chanel23 and you're absolutely right: the pot plants and weeds round the pool area were not at the time up to standard (ie mostly dead and aged (just like me)). This has of course been rectified and my wife has given me a good talking to so it won't happen again!

We take a pride in the cleanliness and welcome we give to our guests and thank you for your feedback.

We arrived by train and managed to walk up with our bags to Cleveland Motor Inn, about 10mins from station. We were glad not to have our bags for the rest of our trips but everything was in walking distance which suited us brilliantly. I cooled off in the pool shortly after arrival and drip dryed on one of the seats outside our room in the sun. We stayed four nights and were very satisfied with the accommodation and service provided. Thank you so much.

I stayed at this motel on the 7th November 2008. I caught the train from the city to the Cleveland station - a short walk to the nearby shopping centre and I caught a taxi for the $5 ride to the motel (too hot to walk!!) There seemed to be a reasonable number of take-away food places and restaurants nearby (walking distance).

My single room which overlooked the pool area consisted of a comfy queen size bed and a single bed, a table and chairs and a small kitchen area with microwave & tea making facilities. The room had an ironing board and iron (which had seen better days but did the job!). Although the motel was full, it was generally very quiet, with only minor disturbances when people were checking out in the morning. No noticeable noise from the nearby main road and train line.

The room and the bathroom were both spotless; no bath, just a shower, but more than adequate. There was also an airconditioner and ceiling fan, which are absolutely essential in Brisbane in November.

Checkin was fairly slow, but that was only because the owner was a quick-witted scots bloke who loved to have a good yak.

At $107 aussie dollars for the night, it was excellent value.

  • Liked — Quiet, clean, comfortable
  • Disliked — Little bit out of the way as I didn't have a car.
