Couldn't possibly make Rocky from Brissy as I left too late in the day. Bororen looked like a decent 5 1/2 hr effort so I could get a good rest as I still had a big drive the next day. Booking was easy and pleasant. Beds were very comfortable with clean sheets. Had a great sleep even though it is...

For what it is, a highway / roadside stop. Was impressed by the cleanliness and the quality of the rooms. Cost includes free continental breakfast. Smoke free rooms and good, secure off road parking. I'd easily recommend this place. Decent pub grub available and importantly the beers are icy cold

Geoff and Karen are very accommodating and friendly hosts. Karen's home cooked evening meal was delicious. My steak was cooked how I asked, and the mushroom sauce was lovely. Lovely fresh salad and chips to accompany. The unit was clean although a little rusty in the bathroom, but still clean. Internet available.This place is worth a stopover. There is a...

We spend one night in this little village at the A1. The motel ist located right at the highway and the tracks. However, it was not very noisy. The owners were very friendly, helpful and could provide dinner on demand. The room was clean and sufficient. Perfect to stay a night on traveling

This motel is worth the stay, Karen the manager is friendly and nothing is too much trouble at all. Karen cooked us a meal, it was huge and really tasty, good home cooking. The rooms are clean and tidy, the whole motel is clean and tidy. We will always stay here on our trips.

We travel up and down the coast regularly. We actually started to stay here by default as the usual accommodation we used was booked out. They gave us Karen and Geoff's number and we are so glad they did. We have not stayed anywhere else on our journey's south since that day. Karen and Geoff are doing an excellent job...

“The motel is on the Bruce Highway so noise is an inherent problem. The Bruce Highway currently has many, many roadworks from Gin Gin to Rockhampton, so room position makes little difference. Trucks travel at night to avoid lengthy delays. This is beyond the control of management.”
