Ok for an overnight stay, just passing through. Clean and comfortable. Staff very pleasant and lots of knowledge of the area. Coffee amazing. We had breakfast in the restaurant very nice and also peaceful.

Tough porterhouse, raw potatoes but great veggies. Hard to believe it was an MSA graded steak. Wait staff didn’t seem at all concerned and eager to help rectify the experience. No wonder people turn to white meat.

Our Porterhouse is Award winning Oakey Black Angus Reserve grain Fed Beef, I am surprised that our staff did not offer you an alternative as this is what they should have done. All I can do is apologize that you did not enjoy your meal.

Very friendly smaller accomodation option located on the river in town. No view from rooms but rooms all look inwards on lawn and pol area. Restaurant overlooks the river. Short walk along river on Quay St to other eating options and town centre. Rooms are modernised, compact, clean and staff friendly. Kitchenette is microwave, kettle and cutlery/dishes but washing up is in small wash basin. Bed is kingsize.

Stayed last night. Had requested Ground Floor Room and Firm Bed. Yes, we had a comfortable night sleeping. Room clean, seemed spacious. Quiet for position. Complimentary continental breakfast handy and catered for my gluten free bread but confused by not understanding or offering use of toasting bread not used by gluten products. So if a really sensitive Coeliac Disease person would have trouble explaining. She’s learning I guess.

Thank you for your review. If you had let the waitress know we could have toasted the bread in the kitchen using a clean gluten free grill.

I highly recommend staying at Motel 98 on the river in Rockhampton. It was a lovely and relaxing experience with friendly, helpful staff and great food. Because it is close to the centre of town you have access to the theatre and art gallery as well as other restaurants but the best food is at Restaurant 98.

Room Tip: Bathroom is a bit small but very modern and clean
