A lovely old building with smashing rooms - all needs catered for and wanted for nothing. Our room did smell a bit musty but not worthy of complaint - just of note. Also our aircon had a mind of it's own and we were hot all night - I did mention it the following day and they receptionist was very apologetic and told me off (in jest) for not calling her in the evening and letting her know - my fault entirely.

I have seen comment in other reviews concerning the train noise. Well, if you do book here you should do your research and know that the railway line is mere meters away. There is, in my humble opinion, no excuse for not knowing that and therefore do not complain. On the positive side - there was only one train late in the evening that we heard although my wife assures me there were others but their noise was drowned out by my snoring!

We had dinner at the pub across the road - friendly staff and food was OK but if you are looking for a great steak that Rockhampton is famous for you won't get it here.

Would certainly return - love the rooms. Thank you.

Dear Sharky12, Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We went straight away to check the aircon as they had recently been serviced, and found that the code from the remote had been accidentally changed so it was not communicating with the unit. It was an easy fix and we would have been more than happy to have had it fixed for you on the night or even changed the room for you. Please let us know next time you are coming, we very much look forward to welcoming you back

For not much more than the very basic motel we stayed in on our previous visit to Rockhampton, we got an enourmous, comfortable, luxury room. This history building is gorgeous, the bed was comfortable, the spa/shower is spacious but the room is so big that it doesn't intrude.
Breakfast was basic. A cooked breakfast would have been welcome even if for an extra charge, but not available.
Staff were friendly and helpful.
We had a room right at the back and I didn't hear any trains, though I'm sure there were some. I might request a room closer to the rail line next time. I love the sound of trains in the night. But if that's not your thing, ask for one at the back.
We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back will have less noise from the railway. Upstairs rooms have 2 flights of stairs.

Historic railroads building repurposed into a lovely historic hotel. Room was huge, very clean, comfortable king bed, spa bath, big lounge, well stocked minibar. Nice touches like bathrobes and hotel slippers, and foam ear plugs for sleepers who might get disturbed by noise from freight trains passing by

First up we had a car park facing room and it was very quiet. We only had one freight train go by (that were we aware of as we were still awake when it went by). If more went by during the night we didn’t notice and I’m a very light sleeper but didn’t need the ear plugs. So ask for a quiet room and use the earplugs if you think it will be a problem

The room is really quite luxurious and incredibly good value. My only query is where is the hair dryer? Maybe there was one but we searched everywhere and couldn’t find one.

The dining room looked very classy but we were keen to see the river so opted for breakfast out.

Thank you very much for your lovely feedback. We are overjoyed you enjoyed your stay with us and liked the property. The hairdryer is in the drawer that is located inside the cupboard. We tucked it away so as not to take from the old world charm, I wanted to tuck away the TV and fridge as well, just could not find a way and a hotel mini bar is my guilty pleasure. Thank you for your fantastic rating, we look forward to welcoming you back

We stayed one night and the room was decked out in old world furniture. Bed was a four poster and very comfortable. One word of caution it is a 10 minute walk into town and there is not a lot in the immediate vicinity. We walked into town to check out a few pubs and eating options. Caught an Uber back for less than $10. Breakfast is included - cereal toast yoghurt fresh fruit tea and coffee. Good value for money in a setting of days gone by.
