Stayed here two nights. Bed was very comfortable. There was a pool but wasn't cleaned while we were there and it was full of debris. Had to go for new password for internet every day which we thought was strange. Very friendly people. Would stay again

Thank you for your review. We are surprised by your comments about the pool as we do clean it everyday. The only thing I can say it has been excessively windy and the leaves from our trees are falling excessively. I have talked to our ground keeper about this and we will try to keep the pool free of leaves,...

Thank you for your review. We advertise that the restaurant is open 7 days a week for breakfast and 6 days a week for evening meals (except public holidays). We do have a bed and breakfast package but definitely do not have a bed and meal package. It is always explained to you on arrival the restaurant times and they...

We have stayed in this motel nearly a dozen times over the years and will continue to return. It is a fabulous location on the river with particularly friendly and helpful staff. Janel was wonderful. We had to have our car windscreen replaced on the morning of our departure and asked if it was possible for a later checkout as...

Driving thru Rocky & too tired to continue our trip we decided to find somewhere for the night. Thinking we would be out of luck as it was a public holiday we were surprised that we could get a lovely room and have such wonderful friendly service! Clean, modern room with comfortable bed was just what we needed. Will definitely...

We originally planned just an overnight stay here but we enjoyed our stay so much we extended for two more days. The rooms have just been renovated and so are very pleasant. Also nice and quiet with a handy and pleasant restaurant. The owners and staff were very helpful and happily arranged a new room for us changing the king...

Motel98 is in a fantastic position, walking distance to great eateries, shopping and right on the river. This is not 5 star accommodation, but is excellent for a clean, comfortable, affordable stay. We needed to be in Rockhampton for the weekend and loved our stay and would definitely return.

This motel is right beside the river, only a short walk from the CBD and other nearby Hotels and eating places. However, the Motel also has it's own restaurant, which looks out over the river, has indoor or outdoor seating, and serves wonderful food. The location (off the main highway through down) means that it is nice and quiet.

I can highly recommend this central motel in Rockhampton. Right from entering, the very helpful and friendly Mum and daughter team made us feel extremely welcome, helping us find out about Rodeo at nearby Great Western Hotel (go if you can). The room was immaculate, spacious and very clean. Modern and bright, we could not fault our nights sleep there....
