This motel offered a good accommodation for anyone wanting to stay relatively close to the airport. It's a bit hidden away, and the staff was very friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. The restaurant leaves much to be desired for anyone not wanting Indian food. We both ordered the fish and chips, which tasted like Morton's frozen filets and...

From my first phonemail to this motel, I was impressed with the 'lady at the end of the line'. She was courteous and helpful and I was given the impression that this was a family owned business where they were prepared to go all out to serve their clients. Today I met 'The Voice', Christine, the manager of this establishment....

Stayed here for 3 nights on a business trip. The room itself was quite clean and i managed to gain the trust of the ants in the bathroom after i let them have their way with my toothbrush. I tracked them back to the toilet sistern and informed management before i left so hopefully they have been relocated from room...

We selected this Motel because of it's proximity to the airport (and because it was 4 star? And because I thought it was a hotel, and not a motel). As our car pulled up to the place, my husband immediately started kicking up a fuss and declared he would not set a foot inside. I had however already paid in...

Stayed here one night to catch a morning flight. Rooms are very basic, but clean. It's close to the airport. They offer airport transfers with drop off only on set times. Waited for the bus 10 min early and no one even showed up 10 mins after their set departure time. Rang all the contact numbers but no answer from...

Stayed here for 1 night before an early morning flight. The motel is one of the closer ones to Brisbane airport making it very handy. Arriving after dark it is a bit difficult to find as it's in an industrial area, however the rooms are quite modern for a motel & the staff rather friendly. Our room was clean, secure...

Not what I was expecting. It is located in a light industrial and commercial area near the Brisbane airport. It is a little hard to find, especially at night. The hotel building is off the street behind another building and surrounded by large commercial buildings. There is a hotel sign and lobby building located on the street, but hard to...

We stayed there because of a morning flight to Hong Kong and we were very disappointed. The bed was hard but the pillows were even harder. There was spiders and spider webs in the bathroom. It was over run by ants. I would suggest it needed to have the pest control done. Also at around 6.15am a backhoe was outside...

Chose this Motel as it was close to the airport when we flew in, & only 50m from Apollo Motorhomes which we were picking up early the next morning. The shuttle bus is Drop Off back at airport only, you need to find your own way there. The staff were very friendly, however Reception smelt like Curry. All the accommodation...
