Just off the highway we found a beautifully kept motel - clean and spacious. Friendly staff who couldn't do enough for us. Breakfast was lovely prior to heading off for the day too. If you are heading to Brisbane from Sydney (or the other way) this is certainly a great place to stop. There are several places to eat at...

Well located close to highway but not noisy. Short walk to town shops and river front. Excellent customer service. Comfortable and clean beds and bathroom. Blockout curtains are great. Unfortunately, bathroom and toilet doors were squeeky. Aircon is limited to 21 degrees which is ok for main room but too hot for kids' daytime naps in second bedroom in family...

Thank you very much for your review. We are glad that you found our beds comfortable and enjoyed the short walk to our town centre. Did you happen to mention that there were doors that squeeked? Management would have taken care of that immediately. The Aircon is limited to industry standards, I'm surprised that other motels have it cooler than...

On our way up to Queensland we booked a room in this Motel. Clean and well organized and also easy accessible with just 200 metres off the M1. Good size room with all the necessary need for a comfortable stay. You can also have the breakfast with some extra payment.
