The accommodation is very basic, but pet friendly. Room was clean and bathroom has recently been updated. Location is within walking distance of shops, restaurants and cinema. It's not the Ritz but for an overnighter with your pet (and it's the only pet friendly motel in Rockhampton) its adequate.

We stayed here peak season 2015/2016 with our VERY large Labrador. We were on the second floor and were very impressed with the clean standards of the motel considering it is pet friendly. There are dogs everywhere! I really liked that food can be delivered to the room at no extra cost after a long day of driving. 10/10

This is the filthiest accommodation I have ever stayed at. Towels have brown stains on them. Bathroom absolutely disgusting. Dust all over the floors. Walls damaged and unrepaired. Needs a check by health inspector. Overall, dingey, filthy and I will never stay there again.

We arrived at the motel at around 7.30pm and was told that there was a room available (we hadnt pre booked) the staff seemed very friendly and helpful so we had high hopes. The room had a strange smell to it but we got passed that, it was tired and needed an update and the workmanship on things that had...

This motel is gust north of the Rockhampton CBD. It is a five minute walk to the stock lands shopping centre. The rooms are clean and comfortable. It has its own restaurant and bar which is well stocked and the menu has a good selection of meals. It is also pet friendly and has off street parking.

We just needed a night out of the camper. Pulled into this pet friendly place only to be charged an extra $30 to accommodate the pooch, $135 in total we feel for the old sheets and dirty cups was a little over priced. Happy to head back to the camper

I would not recommend this place to anyone. We only stayed here because it was pet friendly and we had our dog with us. There were hundreds of ants crawling all over the bench. It was spooky. When we were laying in bed the cupboard door opened all by itself. I closed it only for it to open again a...

Staff were pleasant and accommodating. On arrival had issue with room, spoke to management and room was changed. I booked for daughter and I and got a family room (sleeps 4). Plenty of parking. Room was clean and comfortable. Brand new bathroom. Shower is wet room, but water sprays a little. Only downside, as had a room upstairs no undercover...

We had booked the motel to break up our trip from Townsville to Brisbane. The manager rang me to confirm my booking which I appreciated because I was late leaving Townsville. The restaurant was open when we got there and served us with delicious food. All staff were friendly, the room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom had recently been...

This was a last mintue decision to stay here after driving 10hrs. Reception was very friendly and welcoming. Upon arriving we quickly put the heater on as its quite cold in the room. The box aircon was rattly and even though it was on the hottest temp it would only blow slightly warm air and cuts out every 5 minutes....
