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.

Staff unhelpful, and lazy. The smoke detector was missing, Filthy, the bathrooms had other peoples body hair stuck to the walls/tiles. Dogs barking in rooms adjacent, doors wouldn’t open and close properly the kids couldn’t get out of the bathroom at one stage. Mattress was old and sagging. Crockery was chipped and filthy. The fridge smelt so bad that we couldn’t even open it. This place is a nightmare. Steer clear.

Terrible experience. Will not stay again. Booked and paid direct at office 2 weeks prioras we were arriving late. Arrangements were made to collect key from key safe. We arrived around 9..00 pm to find our room had no towels at all. The office was closed but after many unanswered phone calls we received a reply via text message to say go collect a key to another room and shift. This room key was not in key safe. I contacted manager (?) again but received no reply. We were left to work it out for ourselves. We had to leave early next morning so no personal contact with staff or management as office does not open until 2 pm. Still have not heard from anyone. No care or concern. Very unprofessional. I would not recommend this motel at all.

The person at reception was more interested in what was happen on his phone then the check-in process. Just handed over the key, no direction on where the room was. While my room was clean it felt like a cave. Lighting was completely inadequate, the main light seem to be running on the smallest wattage bulb available. Traffic noise was a constant. Overall it was not a dreadful experience, but I’d look for an alternative motel next time.

Stayed with my family for a primary school 125 year celebration for 2 nights. Room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. When we arrived the reception was dark and the person behind the desk appeared to be sitting in the dark for some reason.but he processes our booking quickly and efficiently and we were off to our rooms. The lawn was overgrown across the entire grounds which made the place look untidy, but everything was well cleaned inside. The aircon in my room “112” was not very effective, but I was able to move my bed underneath it which made it acceptable. It was quite warm both days so without moving the bed the room would have been very hot. The strength of the shower head was awesome and the temperature made showering a pleasure. It is sad to see that the restaurant is gone as it used to be one of the best in Gladstone.

This motel is owned by a young couple who are doing a great job. They are on the property 24/7 and go out of there way to be helpful and make you feel welcome. The front rooms can be a little noisy with road traffic. They are close and walking to a great pub for excellent meals, and walking distance to a wide of shops in 2 centers. Give them a go as they are trying really hard and deserve support. I had an issue with taxis and they helped me out, very thoughtful and kind

Only two flat pillows and no blanket on the bed. Right on the main road and constant traffic and sirens. Sun blazes into the front and gets really hot in the room. No hand towels or conditioner. No bottled water. No cable TV The spa is cold We called to check in early and a woman said we could arrive at 1pm. We arrive at 1:45pm and were then told that the lady should not have told us that, could be the wife? and that we can’t check in until 2pm. This rooms are very agreed and are not represented as the images in the gallery.

Motel is in a convenient location. All facilities were very clean and well presented. Staff were very friendly and obliging. As i was travelling with family adjacent rooms were provided. There were no problems with room servicing. The undercover parking outside my room was appreciated when it was storming. It was the perfect venue for our family.

Stayed here for 7 nights over Christmas. Good location, close to shops and hotels. Advertised as serviced rooms but in 7 days, not once was our bed made. Most days, staff would come to the door and ask, do you need tea, coffee or take your rubbish for you. A vacuum, bathroom clean, bed making, maybe clean sheets after a few days would have been nice. Obviously, this what they class as serviced rooms. Have stayed in cheaper accomodation in Gladstone and servicing and breakfast were included. More staff would improve this establishment.
