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.

Right next to the main road from Toowoomba to Brisbane. Friendly reception. Small double room with the minimum required. No plug for the basin but was supplied when requested. This is definitely an overnight stop if you do not have time to continue on to either major centres to the east or west.

We stayed at this motel during a recent trip to attend a sporting event that was being held in Laidley. Rooms were quite a good size with both a queen and single bed to cater for a couple and child. Both hot breakfast and continental breakfast was available for purchase at reasonable prices as well as evening meals if you required them. There was also a Laundry Service offered by the managers of the motel, where they both wash and dry a load for you for a minimum cost. We did take advantage of this, as it was very helpful as we had been away for a few days and dirty clothes had accumulated and it was good to be able to have this service performed while we were at our sporting event and nice clean clothes waiting for us in our room on our return. This motel also offered a pool that was very refreshing.

Although this is an old motel everything was spotless and the managers were very friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious with huge portions being served.
The bed was comfy and plenty of hot water.
Unfortunately there is nothing in Hatton Vale so it's only really good as an overnight stay.

We stayed one night at this motel, it was midway between visiting two different groups of family/friends, convenient location. However the room (#5) was not so good. In general it was clean though smelled stale. A power board was installed instead of proper wired power points which is unsafe. We did not sleep much as we were kept awake by what we think was either mice or rats gnawing on an internal wall. We had a cuppa on arrival, cups were rinsed and left on the bench for the morning. One cup had mouse/rat poo in it so we didn't have a morning cuppa. Some grout in the bathroom was missing, grout that was there was black with mould. Surprisingly we didn't hear much road noise (probably drowned out by the mouse/rat gnawing). Overall the place is run down. There is a sign advertising the site is up for lease, the new person has a lot of work to do to get this motel to an acceptable standard in terms of health and safety for its clients. Will not stay here again.

The male owner was unfriendly upon arrival, the room smelled musty. It was very old, outdated, and dusty. I felt like I was sleeping in someone’s shed. I was extremely tired from a long drive and slept for a couple of hours before leaving. Not worth $110 p/n. Instead of a power point there was a power board put into the wall which did not look safe. The fridge was very noisy. I would not recommend staying here.

We booked in for 1 night only and thank god we didn't need to stay more. Rooms smelt mouldy and the pool was green. We had kids with us and booked because of the so called pool. I would not pay more than $70 per night and would expect way more for the $120 asked. There was only one small roll of toilet paper the lamps didn't work the air cond vents have not been cleaned... The list goes on. Very disappointing after a great holiday in QLD. Keep driving past this place.

On the 7 September 2013 my wife and I booked this hotel because of a family wedding nearby at Laidley in May 2014. It seemed well rated for the type of accomodation we required. I gave my credit card details, contact details and booked for three days from the Thursday to the Saturday (Wedding Day) as we were coming from interstate. When we booked I called by telephone as we did not have access to the internet at the time. When we later returned home I contacted the motel to verify all had been booked properly and asked for an email confirmation. That email did not arrive and I contacted again and I was assured a confirmation was forthcoming and that we had a booking. That email did not arrive either and with the passage of time I thought, 'well the man assured me it was booked', so I thought all was well. WELL!! today 29/4/2014 my wife called the motel to double check and we were told we had a booking but it was only for one day. This was completely incorrect. The female person I spoke with said they were completely booked out and there was nothing they could do and she could only advise the manager. I asked if she could make any suggestions for other accomodation in the area and she said 'No, it's booked out everywhere. As the wedding is at Laidley we will now have to search for something a bit further out. THE LESSON IN THIS: Book and persist with a confirmation. Next time I will wait to use the internet so I can get that confirmation. VERY BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE.

This was a great motel to spend three nights at for a recent wedding, Australian/ Asian dinners moderately priced, tariff of $118 was god value and Queen beds were clean and comfortable.
WIFI was provided free of charge.
BBQ available all on two acres, at night we watched about 20 kangaroos feeding
Staff were extremely helpful
Had a swim in pool which was refreshing
Enjoyed a beet at local golf club 400 meters away
Would be first choice when passing that way again

I have just spent 2 nights in this over priced place and found it to be unhealthy.....mouldy shower curtains, mould on ceiling......no phone as advertised no nibblies as advertised. I had stayed in this Motel several times in the past when it was under different management and couldn't fault it but now I will NEVER again use this facility. I have taken photo's as proof of the state of this room.

Rooms very clean and cool. Breakfast was great. We were going to go to McDonalds but decided to order breakfast instead. It was great. Bacon cooked to perfection and a very generous serving as well. Owners lovely to deal with and the cat - was beautiful.
