“There was a bath!!”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

Of all the motels we've stayed in over the years, this is the only one that has had a bath in the bathroom. The room itself had heaps of space which is rare...it had a walk-in robe area which was also large and had a vanity area which was perfect for my daughter to do her hair and make-up for competition. The bathroom was very big and had a large bath.The was a $5pp buffet breakfast which was perfect when ur watching dollars while travelling. Staff and housekeepers were very helpful. We will be staying again :)

Great rooms and in house dinner and breakfast was really convenient

Overnighting on a business trip to Rockhampton, I had a very pleasant stay. The girl on reception couldn't have been more helpful and the dinner menu was very good.

Friendly place - highly recommend and much better than most other hotels I have used in Rocky. I will be back!

Room Tip: All rooms have large shaded carparking spaces. maybe the corner rooms are a bit bigger, but my room...

Stayed here for a night whilst passing through on the Bruce Hwy. Was clean and well maintained. Staff were very friendly and we had a good night sleep in the comfy bed. Would recommend if passing through.

Stayed here number of times and meals were great, big rooms with spacious on suite. Good sized TV and good hot showers. Has public bar, counter meals, free pool table and very well set up. Didn't try pool area but looks good with BBQ facility. Never seen such big car spaces. Have spas in rooms but don't work, would be good to have sign saying not available, took some time to work that out. TIP They cater for hospital patients so ask for room with shower as bath / spa is not easy access if you have mobility problems. In all one of the better places that we have stayed on Rocky's south side. Bar has pokies. Price is slightly higher but rooms are big. Cheers Ian

Room Tip: Ask for room with shower if you have mobility issues as bathtub / shower is quite deep

The Sun Palms hotel motel in Rockhampton is a good place to stay. The rooms are a good size and are clean and quiet! There are tea / coffee making facilities as well as a microwave for re-heating meals and snacks. The motel is also attached to a pub that offers good value, good quality, counter meals and ice cold beer - a must have after a long day on the road. If you prefer there is also a dining room, separate from the hotel.
It is conveniently located on the highway on the south side of town.

Problem with the account-they dont reply to the e.mails sent requarding this,charges to my bank card on the date I never stayed.!!? Paid the moring we left, and when we returned to NZ found the bank statement had been debited twice, once the day we left and again a few days later-when we had left the area. Three e-mails later and stil no response?? Quite disappointed, and feel we have been over charged and with no reason as to why. Key was returned as we left and we left the room clean and tidy. (No damage of any reason to charge again) and without explaination.

My 2 year old daughter and myself were only passing through and stayed the one night. It was a VERY pleasant experience and I couldn’t have been more happy with the service I received upon arrival even though we had no booking. The food from the restaurant served to us in our room was delicious with more than enough on the plate. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to stay for breakfast, much to my disappointment after the meal we had the night before as we had to be on the road again as early as possible. The room was lovely, spacious and clean. There was ample cupboard and shelving space. It was great to relax in the bath tub after a day on the highway and really suited for me having a small child. Because the rooms are set back off the main road there was no noise and the comfortable bed made it very easy to sleep. The undercover parking spaces are a decent size with the grounds well maintained and tidy. Thank you for having us, we will definitely visit you again some time in the future and let other people know where to stay when in Rockhampton.
