An excellant, friendly and clean motel - you certainly can't go wrong.

Fiona and Glenn will make you feel more than welcome at this great motel, where I recently had a pleasant stay.

It's located in Browns Plains near the Logan Motorway which leads onto the Pacific Motorway to the Gold Coast and can therefore act as a good base for exploring the area.

The rooms are all non-smoking and well furbished and vary from a standard room (which is still very good) up to a Spa Suite. I was extremely happy with my bathroom with decent size towels and appropriate toiletries. It was all spotless and very well maintained. The room came with kettle facilities and a toaster as well as a full sized fridge for the all important beer! The bed was very decent and gave good nights sleep.

The full breakfast options available are a reasonable price and good way to start the day. The motel also operates a restaurant in the evening as well as a small bar. The steak I had was excellent and again a fair price.

The only thing you do need to know is that the motel is on quite a major trunk road, with noisy traffic starting from 5am which might be a problem if you are a light sleeper. That said it only bothered me on one of my five nights.

All in all one of the best motels I have stayed in and I will certainly go back if I'm in the area. If only all motels could reach this standard.
