Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. The evolution to the large SUV's has had an impact on parking, however, as you correctly pointed out we have ample off-street spare car parking spaces if and when this becomes an issue.

Convenient in Rocky

Cons: Entry. Was a bit pokey in corner of complex
Convenient on northern side of Rockhampton as we were travelling south and arriving late. the room was quite large and very clean with everything a family might need.

Nice motel that`s close to most needs.

Pros: Comfy beds. Large TV.
Cons: Wash basin and mirror needed in bathroom. Shower recess has slippery floor
We had planned to eat at the motel restaurant. But when we a got to the door it was closed. Staff had forgotten to tell us that the cook was off sick. Other guests were aware of the closure. We were not impressed. Breakfast was offered to compensate for this error.
