I was looking to book an overnight room for my daughter who is currently travelling. She was landing at Brisbane on a late night flight from Fiji and then travelling to Bali the following day. As I am in the UK, it is not easy to do but after a lot of researching and reading reviews, I chose Kingsford Smith...

This would have to of been our 6 stay at this lovely motel and they certainly didn't disappoint. The rooms are always clean and comfortable accessible to airport, cruise terminal and restaurants. The management are always professional and very pleasant to deal with via email/phone and in person, would totally recommend this establishment.

Our first time ever and thanks to the staff we were treated like family. Our breakfast was delivered on time and was hot. Upgraded to a room further away from the noise of the civil works. Close to some great bars and good food.

Only stayed one night, flying out overseas and need to sleep before flying, the owners couldn't have been more obliging, the room was okay, but I would go back again just for the service. The shuttle to the airport topped off a great visit. Highly recommend

I have never stayed in a Motel in Brisbane, (and I have stayed in a lot), that had such helpful, friendly service. The Motel was easy to get to, the room was very nice and location was good but really it was the service that won me over. They went above and beyond to look after me and were so...

We had quite a time getting here - in part because the GPS took a fairly circuitous route and partly because of the road structure in the area but once we got in we were very pleased with what we saw. Room was very clean and well laid out with a nice touch - a table for two in front...

Enjoyed the closeness to the Dock area. Food availability was great. Saw the cruise ship dock there for a short delivery and pick up. Motel room comfortable. Airconditioned. Service great too. Owners very polite and helpful. Late check in facilities.

We stayed for 1 night prior to flying to Melbourne. We were made to feel welcome from the first 'hello'. We had easy access to parking, the room was very clean and comfortable with a great layout for luggage and had all the little welcoming things - like - tea and coffee and product in the bathroom etc. It is...
