I have stayed here for years, mainly as an airport hotel or short Brissie trip. It's handy to the airport and the CBD, I like that you can book direct and not via all these third party websites. When I booked my elderly parents there the hosts picked them up from the shops at Hamilton wharf! that's service.

Such a lovely hotel. The hosts are lovely people. Thank you to Lorraine and Trevor for the hospitality. They even went out of their way to hold my bag whilst I roamed town after I checked out. Will be returning.

Lorraine greeted us like long lost friends, checked us in with a minimum of fuss, made sure that we knew where to go for dinner with a number of really great suggestions! The room was fantastic, a comfy king size bed, a big armchair to lay in (my wife loved it) and best of all double glazed windows! The motel...

As we were unable to continue to our home destination on the same day, we needed a place relatively close to the Airport and this Motel offered a free shuttle back to the Domestic terminal the next morning. Motel is about to be given a face-lift as is quite dated but comfortable. Great beds - we had the best sleep!....

We stayed in 3 different motels in the Gold Coast/Brisbane area and they are mostly very similar but this one stood out for the reasons listed below. -It has a lift! You won't believe how rare this feature is in motels. Much appreciated if you have heavy luggage or mobility issues. -Windows have double pane glass with rubber edges which...

Good quite rooms. Bed was comfortable. Excellent position for cruising or the airport. We flew into Brisbane and had a comfortable night before getting a free transfer to the cruise boat. They were very helpful.

Staff were friendly and extremely helpful. The wifi was unlimited and of a good speed. The room was big, clean and neat with mini bar, helpful local information, and a large bathroom. I was only staying overnight between flights so I spent most of my time in the room sleeping. As a motel close to the airport there aren't many...
