The hotel was so clean and pleasant to stay in.

Posted Feb 12, 2017
Pros: Everything but especially the price it was so affordable for us as we find it hard to do things like this due to financial constraints.
Cons: Nothing its was perfect!
Location: The location was great within walking distance to the wharf to catch the Cat and to portside and Eat street Markets.
We had a lovely relaxing stay, the room was so beautiful and clean, the staff/owners were amazing :-)

Central location

This accommodation was excellent value for money, I would have expected to pay more , great location, very comfortable. I have payed considerably more for a 4 star hotel in Manley which was less comfortable !

Friendly Motel situated close to airport

Posted Feb 11, 2017
Pros: Handy location - very friendly and helpful staff
Cons: the room furnishings could be refreshed / updated, particularly chairs / table and carpet
Location: Handy for airport and City, CAT service (river shuttle) is regular & cheap. Good selection of eateries nearby including the Friday/Saturday Eat Street
Handy for airport and cruise Terminal and Brisbane City CAT, also good road access. Good restaurants close by with varied selection and fair prices. Hotel staff were all extremely friendly, and would share their knowledge, as well as ask about our experience. Nothing appeared to be too much trouble - slight down grading as rooms are a bit worn, although kept very clean, overall, we felt this was excellent.

Very nice hotel.

Posted Feb 6, 2017
Pros: Great receptionist.
Cons: Nothing
Location: Take the CityCat to city centre. Cheap and enjoyable.
Lady at reception was really welcoming and helpful. She gave us some advice about transportation in Brisbane which was very useful. She is a great host! Our plans had changed and we arrived at the hotel in early morning before check in time but we were allowed to leave our car. She even was prepared to get room ready for us ASAP. Room was clean and well equipped. Mini bar had a good selection of items. Bed was comfortable. Hotel next to main road but it was VERY QUITE in the room, no noise what so ever from the street. If you do not want to drive to city centre bus stop and CityCat Wharf about 5 min walk from the hotel. Journey time to city about 30 min. There are couple of restaurants around and shops around hotel. All in all it is a great place to stay.

Good for airport departure.

A convenient place for overnighting when flying out of Brisbane Airport, with the new Portside cafe precinct across the road. With the ferry service into the CBD handy as well. The room was okay and quiet, the motel is a bit dated but a comfortable bed. They have a shuttle service which starts at 0600, but we decided to catch a cab earlier to avoid the rush at international check in and security.

Central to the port.

Posted Nov 15, 2016 on Lastminute
Pros: Ideal to prepare for any cruise. Free shuttle to either cruise port.
We were offered a free shuttle bus to the port though we could easily have walked. New footpaths along the road to the port.
