Reviewed 30 December 2013

We stayed 4 nights over Christmas so it was a lot quieter then usual (which was perfect for us!). I think its a great motel and would definitely stay again. The ensuite rooms are a decent size and have been redecorated so are clean and modern. There is lots of storage space to keep your gear. The pillows, doona and linen are some of the best we have ever experienced in Australian accommodation - especially that of a motel! Yes net is a bit frustrating as you can only connect with the cord. Personally I wouldnt pick a shared bathroom style room as these are above the pub so I think it would be quite noisey. Undercover parking was also nice. The staff in the reception and the gaming areas were very lovely. Location is a nice 2 minute walk to the Manly/Wynum Esplanade and also the train station is a 10min walk. I was really worried that it was part of pub and it would be horrid but we didnt hear any noise from there at all. Highly recommend it.

This place is great! Only $120 a night for a modern, clean, large room. Free internet (granted you do need a cable; they provide one but it's a bit short).

Premises are clean, it's attached to a bit of a leagues club that has a fantastic beer garden. Pub isn't too bad and there's a bottle shop on site!

Restaurant is awesome, great food, get in before 6pm and you get 20% off!

Dead close to Moreton Bay with a decent walking track.

All in all fantastic value if you're looking for a cheaper place than in the CBD. I was travelling as a single however I would have no hesitation whatsoever bringing my kids here.

Manager was a bit surly, but apparently the 'accommodation girl' was on holidays when I was there.

Thank you so much for your feedback, it is much appreciated. We have completed several upgrades to the Hotel including bed linen/pillows, the Fig Restaurant and the Beer Garden, so we are glad you liked all the changes. You will also be happy to know we are in the process of installing WIFI across the premises. We hope to see you next time along with the kids, who can enjoy the xbox games room and ourdoor play area.

We stayed at a motel unit at this hotel whilst attending a nearby function. The rooms are quite average and need some attention. On entering the room you need to pull the wardrobe door towards you to insert the key holder into the power unit to activate power for the rooms – very poorly designed particularly when entering at night.
The bed is a small double bed which was quite comfortable with low level pillows. We were told there were two additional pillows in the cupboard but only found one – reception is not manned after hours.
There is a flat screen TV with a reasonable size frig. Coffee/tea is provided together with two pieces of bred for toasting, and some cereal.
The room has double doors which open up onto a small balcony designed to sit out side or for smokers.
Bathroom is very small with the hand basin only being half size (no plug in basin). There is no wifi in the unit we stayed in nor was there a telephone in the room. Bedside tables were provided but without any bedside lamps so if one partner needed to get up in the dark they had to navigate in the dark or put the overhead lights on. The cover from the smoke detector was missing.
The property is located about 45 minute drive from Brisbane airport and it is a short walk to the waters edge. There are not many restaurants/shops near the property but quite a large shopping centre within 15 min driving distance.
The units are adjacent to a large suburban motel but we were not disturbed by the patrons leaving late at night- very quiet and peaceful.
A short drive down to the foreshore and turn right there is a lovely seafood cafe that does a great selection of breakfasts at a very reasonable price

We hope you enjoyed your stay at our Hotel and plan to return soon in the future. We are very sorry you were not satisfied with the quality of the room you stayed in. You will be happy to know we have recently upgraded all of our rooms with new linen and pillows, giving a fresh and classic look. We are also in the process of installing WIFI across the entire complex. And don't forget next time to try the Fig Restaurant and Bar, located on the Hotels premises, which has a brand new menu. We look forward to you returning to stay again at our Hotel. Thanks.

We stayed for just the one night and it was ok. The room had everything we needed, fridge, TV, Aircon, Double bed and Shower/toilet. It is neat and tidy but a little run down. It's close to everything in Wynnum including just a stroll to the the Bay. Check in though was a little bit of a joke. As I walked in to the reception there was a man on the phone just around the corner. He came out after I made a bit of noise asked for my my name while still on his call, handed the key and then continued on with his conversation? No signing of credit card details or info on where the room was. The following morning at around 7am there were workers making quite a racket outside our room with leaf blowers, hedge trimmers ECT. Very annoying for that time of the morning. Overall I'd have to say if you can find another place to stay then do.

Positives were that the rooms were kept tidy and prices were very good.

Room Tip: Do not get a room with the share bathroom.
