Great place to stay when your so far away from home. I stayed 2 nights at this hotel which was close to all that is required whilst on holiday close to the city, shops & transport. Friendly staff, clean room, comftable beds & an excellent BBQ & pool area!

We have stayed here several times over past 12 months (Staff still do not seem to recogise us.) Every room seems to be different so check the room first. Some are great value and others are very mediocre. In some rooms, you need to be a contortionist to use the toilet (unless you are left handed).....We have had leaking taps,...

The rooms reflect the type of accommodation you would expect 40 years ago. Although this was very tired, the rooms were clean and staff were pleasant. It could be summed up as very basic. Electrical products were adequate. TV was aged and remote partially worked.

Walking distance to Sun Hotel, Coles, Bakery and other shops and eating places on Charters Towers Road. Early check in is a bonus particular if you arrive on early flight out of Brisbane. The rooms are very comfortable and pool area for families.

Clean, comfortable bed, good hot shower including water pressure, however no matter how hard we tried we ended up with a lake on the bathroom floor - no shower curtain or door. 5 minute drive from major sporting facilities - with very reasonable access to washing facilities on site. Pleasant office staff. Outside security lighting shone like a beacon into...

We stayed here just for the night and it was simple but very clean... My only complaint was that the pool was unusable (although there were children in it) it was green and if I had have seen that before settling in we would have moved on... On the whole it was perfect for us to lay out heads for...

Stayed for 3 nights, the price was great. Had trouble with wifi at first but the staff where great and fixed the problem. The shower was outstanding, had lots of room to move. The room was very clean, and if needing anything the staff would do anything to help.

Driving through was great for an overnighter. Clean and well priced. Would definitely recommend to anyone. Service was exceptional. Lovely fluffy towels and clean crispy linen. Room was a good size and bed was very comfortable.

This is a basic motel to crash after long drive, this was my second stay here. The only downside is the doors which are poorly fixed as well as curtains which are hard to keep in place. They will not replace towels unless asked, and very basic motel, there are no dinning options around, quite far away from CBD. But...
