Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The room is very clean, fully air-conditioned, with in-room fridge. Kitchen and bathroom are clean and convenient, they also provide towel, which motels normally don't do. Sean the manager is very friendly and helpful.

Absolutely doAmazing place, so welcoming and comfortable. Room size was good, showers and toilets are spotless so was the room and as soon as you walked in you could smell how fresh it was. The owner and I think her son are an amazing team, so welcoming and inviting and such a breath of fresh air. Would recommend Kookaburra in over any 5 star hotel in Brisbane all day. Thanks guys for going above and beyond for your customers.

Very nice clean room. Great facilities and an awesome host! Would recommend to anyone needed to stay close to the Airport or a wee walk to Southbank. Close to cafes and the waterfront so plenty to do.

Less than 10 minutes walking from central station. Room size is good for one person, a sink inside room was a bonus, A very strong but quiet AC unit made room cooling down quickly. Very close to kitchen and bathroom, not busy all the time. Manager, Sean is a nice guy who manages the property very well. I enjoyed my stay, and would like to recommend to you.
