This is the best in value for money in Rockhampton. I first discovered in 1997 and have stayed many times since. Have not been here for about 8 years. The rooms have been upgraded. My bathroom was original but still OK. Big quiet rooms. Great value. $10 hot breakfast is a bonus. Friendly staff. Just book now.

They couldn't do...

Huge clean rooms and well away from traffic noise. One of the better motels in Rockhampton and very good value for money. Location is not close to town but it has a restaurant with attached pub and liquor store next door. Buffet breakfast for $5. A very good Motel.

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.
