Facilities were clean. The room was very well presented. This place was very easy to locate and right on the northern edge on the highway so you can get up and leave straight away. Great place would stay here again. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was secure and I felt safe staying here.

I always stay here on my way through Rockhampton. The units are excellent value for money, clean, nicely furnished etc. Plus you can a meal in your room or at the restaurant after a long days drive. Staff are super friendly and helpful.

Only stayed one night in a family unit on our way home to Townsville and have marked it in my diary to be the place to stay when ever we travel by road to Brisbane. We were made very welcome on arrival and the room was one of the best we have stayed in. The location was easy to find with out a GPS and wish we had longer to enjoy the rest of the facilities.

My family and I had the most wonderful experience staying here at the True Blue Motor Inn in Rockhampton! We were made to feel welcome and our room was very comfortable. With access to free Wi-fi and cable tv, the whole family were kept entertained during our stay here at the motel.

The meals were excellent with generous portions! Diane and David were also very flexible in accommodating our "fussy" children's taste. They were quite helpful to recommend the sights of Rockhampton to us which we did all enjoy!

I would highly recommend the True Blue Motor Inn here in Rockhampton to anyone either passing through or planning a longer stay! I know that our family will stay here again next time we visit Rocky!! A huge thanks to David and Diane and the rest of their staff for taking care of our little family. I know our kids really enjoyed the "special" breakfasts you made! See you next time!

I had the pleasure of staying at the True Blue for four nights and was delighted with all aspects of my stay. From the welcome to departure the whole team made absolutely sure that my time there was thoroughly enjoyable - nothing was too much trouble.

The restaurant meals are superb and cooked exactly to your liking. The steak and fish are standouts, though the home made pea and ham was exceptional. I would have like to have stayed longer to try the rest of the menu! Breakfast is serviced in the restaurant and provide a wide selection of continental options as well as hearty cooked meals should you prefer something solid under the belt. The truth is that you don't need to go too far from your room to experience great Aussie tucker and hospitality in Rockhampton.

Rooms are well equipped with good TV's with all the digital stations as well as a range of Foxtel channels, and there is even free WiFi. The aspect is fantastic with lots of space and bush behind the motel and plenty of room for bigger vehicles. It's located on the northern end of town on the main highway so there is some road noise but nothing that was a distraction once in your room. It's a bit of a drive to get into the centre of Rockhampton but the reality is with a great feed, cold beer and lovely rooms at True Blue you really don't need to go anywhere else.

I'll certainly be heading in this direction when I next have the pleasure of visiting this delightful part of the country. Well done to the whole True Blue team, thanks for looking after me so well.

True Blue is our usual stop over for 1 night when travelling to and from Mackay - Bowen.
We are always welcomed by the office lady (Denise) who will help where and when needed. We have always had a room that fits all our needs - comfortable bed with extra pillows. The only thing we do miss is 2 plates, knives and folks as the rooms do have a microwave. We don't hear any highway traffic which is a big bonus when one needs a good nights sleep. Thanks Again and will see you next time in our travells.

Room Tip: We always ask for a room in the second block well back from the highway.
