Trevor and Lorraine greeted us with a smile and helped us get our bearings. Lorraine provided us with very valuable information about the amazing river transit system allowing us to explore Brisbane very affordably while we...

Staff couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating, but whoever owns this motel seriously needs to spend some money on it. I was in a room with a queen bed (comfortable) and king single (hard and uncomfortable) with stains on the carpet, a shower tap with the hot/cold piece missing and big rust marks over the bathroom door on the...

My husband and I flew into Brisbane after 26 hours travelling. We arrived at the hotel at 7am and we were exhausted. Our room wasn't ready, not a problem they let us sleep in another room until ours was ready. They even gave us a bottle of milk for a cup of tea. Then when we woke up they drove...

1st floor double room was clean and had plenty of space, the bathroom was a good size and had a hairdryer and toiletries were re-stocked every day. The bed was very comfortable and had plenty of extra pillows in the cupboard. Air conditioning was good as the outside temperatures were quite high. I needed to be close to the Airport...

Absolutely 1st class service, friendliness and helpful attitude by all staff. I felt like a VIP from the moment I walked into reception. 5 Star Hotel! Super quiet room. I was given fresh milk and cold bottle of water upon arrival, which was much appreciated!

This hotel has spacious rooms and is a couple of blocks from Bretts wharf where you can catch the City Cat. Lorraine made a wonderful hostess. There is a shuttle that takes people to the airport. Kettle tea and coffee are in the room and a fridge.
