Only stayed 1 night before catching early flight. Service was great. The lady on reception who I think was the owner was so helpful & very pleasant. Room was good. Lovely big bed. Had a meal here as well which was very well priced & lovely to eat. They also provide free shuttle to airport. Would stay again.

We stayed 2 nights, the manager was helpful & friendly. Our room was clean, beds very hard & pillows like sandbags. No screen door at back and mossies galore. Was central to where we needed to be but no convenience shops close by. Lovely swimming pool. Was nice & quiet.

This motel is around ten minutes from Brisbane airport - ideal for an early morning flight. I decided to stay here last night (Monday 20/3) rather than chance peak hour traffic jams on the motorways up from the Gold Coast. The motel has a shuttle bus each morning if you want to avail yourself. I returned my hire car to...

We did an over night on our way back to NZ. Very clean basic motel. They have a restaurant, which was below average. Eat before you get there, as there is nothing else around. I probably would not stay there again

Close to Brisbane airport I stayed here as I needed a quick overnight before my next flight. It was very clean and spacious, the staff were very helpful as I was travelling on my own. My room was very large with a patio, they have coded security gates to the rooms which was comforting. They have a little restaurant and...

We stayed one night as we had an early flight out the next morning. Only a short drive to the airport, friendly staff, comfy room with an outdoor sitting area. The bed felt hard at first but it was really comfy. We didn't eat here but we had a hire car so went out to eat. There are little black...

We overnighted here prior to our flight. The Motel was clean and the bed comfortable. There is an on site café where the food is basic but plentiful and the beer is cold. Wine by the glass was not expensive. We would happily stay again.

I just stayed one night when flying in to Brisbane late. Easy to get to from the airport. Reception isn't open 24 hours but if you've prebooked they send you an email with the code for the safe so you can get access to your room key. All very easy. The room was reasonable. I thought it smelt ever so...

Being as it was our last night of our 2 weeks holiday, it was so nice to stay in such a beautiful and comfortable room. The manager there was such a delight to chat with. The restaurant was also a winner!
