It took a bit of research in the internet to find a good place to stay in Rockhampton as most reviews of other places left quite some mixed feelings. We decided to shoot for Rocky Resort and made the right choice. It was simply meant as a stop-over for us on the way further south towards Brisbane and we were super happy considering the value for money, friendliness of the staff and cleanliness of the room. The location is perfect for a "pit-stop", right at Bruce Highway so there is zero deviation and it's just convenient. Would definitely book it again.

I can't rate this motel highly enough. The service, friendliness of all staff has made for a most delightful stay. I would highly recommend this motel to anyone wanting to stay for a night or a week. Thanks to Don & Julie for a very pleasant experience

After hearing how hard it is to find somewhere decent to stay in Rocky I didn't have high expectations. I was pleasantly surprised by this motor inn. It was quite a small 2 bedroom but all we needed for our two night stay. Was clean & tidy. Had a kitchenette but weren't allowed to use it for legal reasons apparently which we thought a bit strange. The service was great. I didn't expect our room to be cleaned as often you have to stay 3 nights but on our return from being out our beds were all made and rubbish removed. The restaurant had won best steak for 2012 so we had to try it and while it was quite pricey it was worth it- very nice. The dessert tasting plate was AMAZING. We expected a little taste of each dessert but we got a full serve of each dessert and they were soooo good. Like something from a first class dining restaurant. Well worth ordering.
Pros: clean, tidy, really good service, great food. Very close to fabulous botanical gardens.
Cons: a bit small, view out the back window to the cemetery.
Yes we would stay here again

These apartments are quite new and the one we had featured a TV in both bedrooms as well the lounge. Although there is a basic kitchen there are no dishes or utensils besides tea/coffee making. The bathroom is adequate but doesn't have an exhaust fan or a heater for the cold Winter mornings. The location is convenient being very near the information centre on the southern approach to the city.

Wow! The old dude at the hotel receptionist must get an award for the most unfriendly in Australia. Very rude and unhelpful, I got a lecture about smoking after my credit card was swiped - I thought I had checked in to a No Smoking Bootcamp. The rooms are small with no cooking facilities so this is not resort style accomodation in spite of the name.
On the plus side the food was quite OK, if quite a bit more expensive than what one would expect for a hotel of this average quality.

Room Tip: Try another hotel.
