Guest reviews

  • Single

    Close to pub where I like to eat. Central to where I wanted to go

    Bad to get out of with a vehicle. Hard to reverse out of, unless there is a spare parking bay.

  • Family with children

    It was very clean

    I hind sight it was probably a little too far away from the sea terminal, so the hitch on the morning to catch the reef encounter trip for the day was certainly a heathy walk!

  • Family with children

    Great rooms great friendly helpful front desk people very handy to great local eateries and car rental and airport and easy walk down esplanade

  • Single

    Good value for the amount paid. A 15 minute easy walk to main area of town. The man at the front desk was very hospitable and helpful.

  • Group of friends

    Very friendly reception staff, nice and ready to help; room is clean and comfortable, blue walls and king size bed,

    just a little bit far to city on foot for around 25 mins

  • Family with children

    Not much. The bed was quite comfortable, the television had good channel selection..

    The hotel manager was lazy, unfriendlyand unhelpful . I had to lug my toddler, pusher, all our luggage etc.. up and down the stairs as we were on the 2nd floor and there was no ramp/ lift. The 'kitchen' was a microwave, fridge in the door way and single plug in hot plate. The room was only cleaned once in 6 days and guests are expected to take their own garbage to the bin downstairs. It was right on the main , busy highway. Some guests were not the most desirable of characters. Basically an overpriced motel..

  • Family with children


    Deck around the pool was very slippery when wet

  • Family with children

    Not much ,basic but did a job.

    Rooms were dated and in need of an refurbishment.

  • Single

    I asked to check in early, and the staff accomodated this for me, which was very much appreciated.

    It was a little noisy as you could hear people through the walls, and a bit of road noise.

  • Older travelers

    Room facilities were excellent enjoyed our stay in unit

  • Older travelers

    The rooms were clean and tidy and value for money. It is situated within walking distance to the beach and restaurants. The staff were great and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for a wonderful stay. I will recommend to friends and would not hesitate to stay again.

  • Family with children

    Clean rooms with plenty of room.

    Not that its a complaint however this hotel is next door to a back packers so at times can get noisy. I stayed upstairs and the hot water service lasts only about five (5) minutes before going cold. Have to wait another five (5) to ten (10) minutes before hot water is back on.

  • Family with children

    close to city and waterfront nice for budget travelling tourist its all helps we will stay again

  • Older travelers

    A room being available at such short notice which enabled us to be able to spend time our Brisbane friends who were also staying at the motel . We have booked in again for two nights at the end of August. With thanks, Barb and Brian

  • Group of friends

    The hotel was very specious, with large bathroom, comfortable beds, excellent air conditioning, and what I loved most was how clean the apartment was, specially the towels and bed witch smell really nice and made me feel like if I was home. Thanks chaparral!!

    The location was ok, within 10 to 15 min walk to the city, so no too far but a sometimes tiring if you want to go out for a late dinner or night, however getting a taxi there was not so expensive.
