We booked online through Expedia (they offer a discount) and were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The receptionist was so friendly and helpful, we only stayed for one night after the CMC festival but we had access to the free airport shuttle. Our room was super clean and fresh, aircon was amazing! And the bathroom was super spacious. A nice...

Very handy location; close to city, airport, cruise terminal etc... (free shuttle service available too.) Unfortunately there is a significant amount of loud road works so sleep wasn't of the peaceful kind; not the motel's fault; however customers who would be concerned by this should enquire via local council if/when the road works are completed. Free wifi. Very friendly front...

My husband and I had a rare night away from the kids for his birthday. We stayed in an Executive Double Spa room, it was lovely! So quiet, comfy king bed, very clean, it had a minibar and Foxtel and the staff were incredible! They offered us some complimentary drinks and late check out so we could really enjoy our...

Easy to access, nice staff on check in. Comfortable rooms, easy to access airport for an early start. Pity the council road workers didn't get the memo that people need to sleep. Not the motel's fault, but be aware at the moment there are road works, and the motel backs on to it. if you have an early morning maybe...

We searched out a location that was easy walking distance to where we would be catching a cruise ship, and this Motel was perfect! Trevor and Lorraine greeted us with a smile and helped us get our bearings. Lorraine provided us with very valuable information about the amazing river transit system allowing us to explore Brisbane very affordably while we...

Staff couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating, but whoever owns this motel seriously needs to spend some money on it. I was in a room with a queen bed (comfortable) and king single (hard and uncomfortable) with stains on the carpet, a shower tap with the hot/cold piece missing and big rust marks over the bathroom door on the...

My husband and I flew into Brisbane after 26 hours travelling. We arrived at the hotel at 7am and we were exhausted. Our room wasn't ready, not a problem they let us sleep in another room until ours was ready. They even gave us a bottle of milk for a cup of tea. Then when we woke up they drove...

1st floor double room was clean and had plenty of space, the bathroom was a good size and had a hairdryer and toiletries were re-stocked every day. The bed was very comfortable and had plenty of extra pillows in the cupboard. Air conditioning was good as the outside temperatures were quite high. I needed to be close to the Airport...
