“Pleasant surprise”
Reviewed 14 February 2012

I had an overnight in Brisbane and found this motel on the internet. It's in a pretty nondescript but quiet and safe neighborhood, and is not impressive from the outside, but the service was very friendly and the rooms very comfortable, well laid out, and immaculately clean. Very good bed and bed linens, plenty of water pressure and hot water, nice HD TV. The internet is rather expensive, and you cannot leave the electricity on in the room when you leave because it is key activated. That means no AC and you can't charge batteries while you are gone. A taxi to and from the airport is about $26 each way. Recommended.

Thank you for your nice comments about the cleanliness etc which I have passed on to the cleaning staff. We are an energy efficient Motel trying to help prevent global warming and this is why we have the power saving tags to stop air conditioning running in an empty room. There is a power socket in the room that runs all the time so that batteries can be pluged in to charge while you are gone.
We also have harvested rainwater tanks that supply the toilets and the laundries in the Motel.

Brand new motel with small but functional rooms. I only needed a place to stay for one night while I waited for a connecting flight from Brisbane airport so it was more than adequate for my needs. Only AUS$20 for a taxi From Brisbane airport to the motel. I did have an issue with my room once checked in but the staff were extremely helpful and apologetic and organised a new room which happened to be superior to the one I had originally booked.

Thank you for your comments. I am pleased that the staff were helpful and apologetic and were able to upgrade you. We have had a few initial new building problems which hopefully are now all sorted out.

Given that the motel is virtually new, it was hard to fault the rooms, fittings, fixtures etc. though be aware that the rooms are quite small. Service was great and very friendly staff. Location good too, short walk to lots of restaurants and hotels. Only other fault I could find is the price - $150 per night probably a bit steep for the size of the room.

We stayed here for a couple of nights on our return trip from Heron Island. This is a nice, new, quiet motel. Very clean. Only problem being room service was sourced from elsewhere and entailed a long wait. It would have been nice to have milk left for us on the 2nd day. Free parking on site, lift to rooms.
