We stayed here (booking 2 rooms) as we were travelling as a family - with the family dog. The man checking us in was a bit grumpy as we were checking in late (7:30pm) but afterwards couldn't have been friendlier. The rooms were clean and well equipped - and the beds were amazing! We'd happily stay here again.

We had an enjoyable stay here for one night on our way back to Brisbane. We stayed in a family room which had a queen bed and a single bed. Fridge, microwave, TV etc. It was quite roomy and clean, comfortable bed, nice hot shower with dispenses for shampoo, conditioner, body lotion and shaving cream. Very reasonable prices. Disabled rooms...

We have been coming here for at least the last 10 years - previous owners (Donna & Darren) were amazing. Current owner is rude and unprofessional - verbally abused us in front of other guests. Definitely not returning to this motel.

Dated and a bit shabby but quite clean and comfortable. Air conditioned with a basic kitchenette in our room. Noise from other guests outside is a constant problem. It is a central location. The service was good. We stayed 3 nights for a family wedding nearby.

Great one night stay. The front desk was so welcoming and interested in where we were from and what we were up to. Very pleasant and nice experience! Would highly recommend and go there again. Didn't try the Indian restaurant but it smelled amazing!

Great location - walk everywhere. We stayed in Summer - was 40deg. Air conditioning was awesome. We stayed 2 nights. Was nice 7 quiet, even though place was quite full. The cleanest place you could imagine..room was immaculate. 70's styled interior, but in great condition & bathroom spotless. Bed good. Staff very helpful. will definitely stay again.

I got lucky when I picked this beauty. It is in the centre of town and a walk to everything. Great rooms with the bonus of a cheap continental breakfast.
