Very accommodating were the staff especially when checking in early. Thank you !
Sheets were clean. Bed comfortable.
Not good value . Carpet not clean. Room hot on arrival and air-conditioning took 3 hours to cool the room.
We liked the convenience to the airport. The efficiency and friendliness of the management. The motel was modern, clean and comfortable.
Very neat and tidy, and convenient to everything we needed.
Bathroom - had to step up on step into shower over bath - thought very dangerous in today's terms.
The location was handy to Holt Street where we were to catch a launch to Tangalooma. The motel was quiet as advertised. Brekky was good and lady in office was pleasant and helpful. Parking was also handy.
Easy access to city and airport with good choice of restaurants 10 mins walk away
My room was comfortable and very clean. The hosts were helpful.
The evening meal was something I had to go out for. As a lone female the dark walk to the port was a worry.
The staff here are horrible - this this my second stay and both times they are have been extremely unhelpful, unfriendly and rude. I had given them a second chance but will not stay there again
Stayed there repeatedly a number of years ago, found it always convenient, comfortable and friendly; nothing has changed!
The Staff is very friendly and do everything for you. The Rooms are nicely furnished. The Motel is very clean. Air-condition/Heather is very quit. The Hotel has some rooms towards a busy road, but with double glassing you hardly can hear the traffic. At night the road is quit. There is only a 5 minutes walk to the Shops & Restaurant at the Wharf. It is a very short drive to the Airport and easy to navigate. The Motel has also a Bus driving to the Airport but not from the Airport. We would stay there again at any time. I am sure we will be back.
There is absolutely nothing we didn't like
I was transitting through Brisbane. My onward flight didn't leave until late afternoon so I aske if I could ahve a later check out to 12 noon, or even 11 am would have helped me. I was informed as the motel was fully booked that ould not be possible because rooms had to be cleaned, etc. Surely one hour wouldn't have hurt as all the rooms couldn't be cleaned at once. I was disappointed with this attitude and it spoilt what was otherwise a good stay.
The ease of making the booking. And the owner was very nice and extremely accommodating.
It was a little too low key and a little too far away for me. I should have booked something closer to the airport. I would have been happier.
The personal service from John and Mattie was exceptional, especially given my circumstances (very late arrival, early check-out)
Nowt, it wer grand!
service was friendly and location was convenient to the airport as we flew out the next morning.
Friendly staff Easy access to the airport
I consider the motel to be over priced when I recently stayed in a much fresher 2 bedroom apartment right in the city for $20 less per night.
