The motel is on the edge of town in a lovely quiet spot. The room was perfectly cleaned and located right next to the pool area with a big door and outdoor patio on which to enjoy the view. The owners are lovely, friendly and very helpful. The free continental breakfast, already in the fridge is a great little bonus.

We stayed because of the good reviews and were disappointed. We stayed on a Sunday night and the restaurant was closed, there was a coffee machine but he did not know how to use it. The room was OK however the shower was too small and the WiFi did not work. On browsing through the information booklet the last page...

This is my eighth stay over the past two years and it is always a delight. Hosts Michael and Jodie provide excellent friendly service and the onsite restaurant is an added bonus. Beds are comfy, rooms are clean and well provided for, shampoos etc as well as complimentary basics, cereal, bread, water, juice and more. I wish the other towns...

Great place to say whether on business or leisure. I regularly stay here when travelling to Rockhampton on business, and nothing is too much trouble for the super-friendly owners & staff! You certainly get well looked after when you stay here!

A family-run motel, well organised, clean and comfortable, made this a good choice for an overnight stop between Townsville and Brisbane. The small restaurant attached served nice homely meals, adding to the convenience of staying here. Lovely garden surrounds.

this motel is a hidden gem, and worth the drive 2 minutes up the road from Glenmore. The owners are the friendliest and most helpful I have come across. The onsite café provides wonderful home cooked, generous meals. The rooms are clean and neat, with good provisions - little things like an ironing board with a cover properly fitted and...

I was working close by, but choosing this motel was a great all-round decision as well. The staff were very friendly and helpful and really went out of their way to make my stay enjoyable. The meals were an added bonus - well prepared and delicious, with a good range of wine by the glass. I would definitely recommend it,...

We had stayed here some time ago and remembered how spacious and quiet this motel was so it was an easy decision to return again. A change of management in the intervening period hasn't changed the relaxed atmosphere to be experienced at this motel. While it is some distance from Rockhampton's CBD, it suits us as it is located on...

Clean rooms, beautiful peaceful outlook overlooking gardens and pool. Downsides... long way from shops, definitely not walking distance, no cafe/coffee shop facilities during the day, cooked breakfast not the best, bacon more boiled then fried.
