We stayed overnight to catch an early morning flight. It's only about a 10-min drive to the airport, and they provide a free shuttle on the hour. If you have a cruise, it's REALLY close to the port. Portside is only about a 5-min walk and you'll find a wide range of places to eat, an IGA grocery store, and...

We were met with very gracious hosts who couldn't do enough for us. Fresh milk for tea and coffee was given immediately. Our room was modernized, spacious, very clean and faced out the back on to lots of palm trees. Loved the louvered blinds. Free Wi-Fi and a mini bar fridge which is needed with the heat. The bed was...

Rooms are very spacious and clean. Bathroom/toilet was clean. Ample parking space for guests. Would be staying there again on out next trip and would definitely recommend...

Hosts were awesome! We found the rooms to be spacious, and clean - we stayed before and after our cruise. The aircon was brilliant and cooled the room in minutes! Mini bar was affordable and well stocked. Motel is close to Eat Street, Max Brenner and other restaurants & cafes - literally a five minute walk across the road. 10-15...

This motel is located very close to the cruise terminal which is why we booked it. Our room was nice and hosts were lovely amd welcoming. It is a short walk to the shops and restaurants at the cruise terminal, or you can wander in the other direction to local shops. Thanks for the icy cold water on checkout. A...

We needed somewhere close to the airport for an early flight but where we could park and visit the centre of Brisbane the day before. Mark and Rose's warm welcome despite us arriving very early was the best we've encountered so far and the provision of ice cold water was perfect. Mark's recommendation to eat at Byblos was inspired -...

We stayed one night before a cruise. We arrived early and were willing to leave our luggage but the owners went out of there way to get the room cleaned and offered us something to drink while we waited. The room was clean and comfortable and the location is excellent, with the airport, cruise terminal and restaurants close by. The...

Our travel agent booked us into this very clean motel which is close to cruise terminal, as we were setting off on a cruise the next morning. As I have two teenage children the owners were very friendly and very happy to assist with directions to restaurants, cafes, shops. Rooms where spacious and very clean and quiet. Excellent and very...
