We arrived way too early after embarking a cruise, and were met by sympathetic Dave and Denise. We were given a cup of tea and a seat outside in the shade, while our room was made available! We were lucky to get the triple bedded room, but felt that perhaps two beds would have been more comfortable within the space.... More

Really enjoyed our stay. The room was comfortable, and obviously recently remodeled. The staff was fantastic and went way above anything expected to help us at every turn. We would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for convenience, comfort and excellent service!

Exactly what was required. Close to the airport and hire car companies. We were able to check in and drop off our luggage well before check in time. Clean, tidy and easy access. Id recommend this hotel for anyone.

This hotel is located in a great little neighborhood within walking distance of many good little restaurants. Also available are grocery store, pharmacy/drug store and other services.

Had a great stay here before flying off on holiday. Great location that is near the airport and also Portside restaurants, with friendly staff and clean comfy rooms, just what we needed. Will definitely stay here again.

Very clean. Fluffy towels, comfy beds. Everything in the room you need. Hairdryer, large mirrors, kettle, tv, safe, milk in fridge. Reasonably quiet, bathroom a bit small & parking tight. Breakfast finishes at 8.30am.

This is a very small drive in motel. Certainly tricked by the Best Western sign. However small and basic, the staff were wonderful and made up for the let down. The rooms are sparse but clean. Location is close to airport but too far from city center. Overnighting for an early morning flight is the only reason to stay here.

We stayed at this motel due to its location near the airport for 2 one night stays. Its location was great with lots of amenities and shops close at hand. One huge bonus for the motel is the railway station across the road. Travel into central Brisbane would have been so easy if we were staying longer. The managers of... More
