The room was quite small in comparison to similar motels in rocky and due to the cattle show their price was $40 dollars dearer than similar motels. TV did not work correctly and if you left the bathroom windo open to let in air any one in the carpark in the row behind the unit could see directly in . Not to good if your a woman.

Nice Hotel

Cons: WOTIF needs to ensure the maps are accurate.
Location: Located on the left as you enter Rockhampton. Despite being on the highway, the traffic is not noticeable.
Stayed with my 11-year-old son. The rooms are clean, modern and roomy with good wi-fi, nice hot shower, friendly and helpful staff.

Pros: The Motel itself was excellent very clean & well presented
Cons: when quoting for a standard room to state any features that may be different for the same price eg shower facility
Location: First into town so easy to find
Only problem booked room through wotiff & thought they were all standard rooms. I had just had a knee replacement & our room had a Spar Bath & there was great difficulty in lifting the bad leg. Friends stayed at the room next door & going in to them the next morning found them to just have a ordinary flat floored shower which would have been perfect

Disappointing Overnighter

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Wireless internet coverage. The fridge. The noisy cleaning staff. The small size of the TV....would have been ok 10 years ago.
Location: The location was handy being just on the southern approach to Rockhampton. Plenty of things to see / do not n Rockhampton, but we were just passing.
This motel advertises on the Wotif site that it has wireless internet and also has wireless promitely advertised on a shingle outside. Bad enough that it was too weak to effectively work in our unit, but when I mentioned this to the manager in the morning, his only comment was "...Yeah, we have trouble with it on that side of the motel. No apology even though they obviously knew about it. The fridge in the room was noisy, but not as bad as the cleaning staff who were shouting to each other and clanging about. I'm 58 and have stayed in a lot of motels and these cleaners were by far the noisiest cleaners that I have ever experienced. (Heard!). The reception tried to charge me for the room in the morning. I had to show them the Wotif email to convince them that it had already been paid.
