Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We booked this place as we thought it was near the cruise terminal. Our mistake. Apparently the cruise terminal has relocated and appears to be on the other side of the airport. Never mind. The motel itself is nice and clean with good a/c and WiFi. Had a nice meal across the road at Gallopers and breakfast this morning at cafe 63 in the Hamilton area, about 12 minutes walk away. I would recommend if you’re looking for a budget stay close to the airport.

My stay at this hotel was disappointing. The Booking.com listing misled us with promises of a separate seating and dining area, but in reality, it was just two bedrooms, a kitchen with no bench space or cupboards for food and no cupboards or drawers to store our clothes. The parking situation was equally frustrating – despite being told there was parking, we found only a handful of spots available on a first-come, first-served basis which was fun with luggage in the rain. The listing also mentioned an in room washer & dryer- when asked upon checkin I was told it was a shared laundry downstairs. Overall, not the experience we were led to expect. When I questioned all of this upon check-in I was told it was the booking agents fault (booking.com) but in fact it was the accommodations listing that lead us astray. Be careful. For reference we booked the premium booking of 2 bedroom with kitchen at the residence located at 18 Lamington Terrace.

Dear Jessica, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience and I appreciate your time on the phone to discuss your feedback. I apologise again that your experience did not meet your expectations and rest assured, your feedback has been shared with the wider team, please note we never mentioned on booking.com site or other booking channels site we have a seperate seating or dining areas? also if you look at room photos or room description there is no mention of seperate seatings and dinning areas. In reference to parking its a limited parking facility and there a plenty of free and safe parking outside the building, also we have clearly mentioned washer & dryer downstairs and its a shared laundry facility. We certainly would value the chance to change your impression and hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back soon. Warm Regards,

Sent the following to Ascot with no response: Just a heads up. There needs to be a yellow warning strip of the level change into bathroom or a shallow ramp, or both. I tripped on it twice, the 2nd time slamming my lower arm into the door handle. My right shoulder muscles were painful for 4 days and even today i am visibly bruised from the back of my right hand up to elbow with weakness to shoulder. Main bruise is about 5 inches wide and almost halfway around my arm but a total of 4 bruises, just from hitting the door handle. However it saved me from faceplanting into the toilet. Thankfully no break to arm or collarbone. Extremely dangerous trip hazard for elderly or the vision impaired. Otherwise a good little unit, great beds. Would stay there again but pack my own reflective warning tape!!!

Thanks for your feedback! This is the first time we have come to learn about such issues. Please note that we do have two units that cater for guests with any disabilities. The bathrooms are larger, there is no change in level to the bathrooms and they are fully equipped with hand rails. If you do decide to visit us again please request such a unit and we will certainly allocate it you if they have not already been booked.

Free parking is non existent in residential units. Only 4 undercover parks If you have a mini it would still be difficult to park. Disability car park is a joke. Not staffed. Pick up box only. A rock would have been better to sleep on.

This manager Julie Jones is incredibly rude. She messaged me at 6am the week before staying with my family and said I needed to send her photos of my credit card and ID within 1 hour. I was getting my kids to school and didn't complete in her time frame so she cancelled our booking by text message.

Dear Aron, We are sorry that you have had a bad experience with our service. We pride our ourselves on our customer service and as you will read from other reviews our customers have also appreciated the amount of effort we place on this aspect of our business. In terms of your specific case, you will recall that we been calling you for past few days asking for your ID & CC details since the credit card you used to make the booking was a "fraud credit card" which was informed by our bank, this is the reason we tried to reach you to get the correct details and since you refused to provide your identification to confirm its your own credit card but we had no choice than to cancel your booking. Hope you now understand reason for the cancellation of your booking.

This place is a bit of a con, I booked 2 rooms via booking.Com… the pics of the building and the room you see on trip advisor and booking.Com are not really the hotel, it is a totally separate building! When we got to Brisbane, we realised it was a complete run down half way house where they gave us a room ! When we made a noise and complained & paid extra money did they move us to a building on a separate street which is the building with the fancy rooms in all the photos … So this place is a con … it is actually 2 different hotels owned by the same owner and he is first making you stay in a half way house … which there are no pics of in the website or booking.Com…. Only when you get there you realise it is all false advertising!!! What I don’t understand is why there are no reviews on this con !

Dear Rustom, We are sorry that you have had a bad experience with your stay. In terms of your specific case, we have clerkly mentioned on our booking channels including booking.com that we have 2 style of business operations and they're Budget Rooms with Shared Bathrooms facility and 1 or 2 Bedrooms Units with its own Ensuite and the exact photos of these rooms and units are posted on all the booking sites, including our website so therefore no false advertising as you falsely accusing us. You initially paid for Budget rooms with shared bathroom facility because you went for a "cheap option" without reading or perusing what booking you have made and later at the motel you paid extra for the Ensuite facility realising you have made a mistake by booking a cheeper Budget room option. Please note we pride our ourselves on our customer service and as you will read from other reviews our customers have also appreciated the amount of effort we place on this aspect of our business.

I felt like I landed on another planet at this place. I arrived just before 7:30pm and the woman at the front desk could not have been more lovely and helpful. Unfortunately my room (1) was quite musty and the smell really unpleasant, so I opened the window to air it out a bit, but then got cold so closed it. It was then that I realised that though the bed was nicely made, for some reason it was made without a blanket. I found the blanket in the cupboard, but the cupboard was so mouldy, I was afraid to touch the blanket. Luckily I just happened to be traveling with my hot water bottle, so I used that and one of the towels on the bed to keep me warm. The continental breakfast was a nice bonus, very clean and tidy but it was in the breakfast room that I realised that every single person there was male. They all seemed to kind of know each other as well, so I wondered if it was maybe a halfway house? I couldn't figure it out. Even so, they all seemed pleasant enough, though I felt a bit out of place. Like I was intruding on something and didn't belong there. In the end, though I'm quite simple in my needs, it was a bizarre experience that I don't think I need to re-live. Oh yes, I will mention that the shared toilets were spotless. And the building that they advertise is not the building I stayed in, so that also added to things not quite making sense. I had landed in the Twilight Zone!

Stayed here with my dad for a few nights while we explored Brisbane, and absolutely loved it! The location was super convenient, being right next to a train station that we could take into the city, and it was close enough to walk to Eat Street :) Instructions for contact-less checkin were also very clear so getting settled into the nicely made bed in our room late at night after our flight landed was such a relief. Staff were also very lovely, and breakfast was included ! Could not recommend more if looking for an easy, affordable home away from home.

I loved this hotel, no bells and whistles, just good old plain hospitality. Free continental breakfast, tea coffee, toast, cereals. Julie the manageress is very helpful and friendly. Near the airport, train station is 4 minutes walk away. or get the bus into town, 3 minutes to the bus stop. I stayed here for 6 nights, saw all of Brisbane at a fraction of the cost of one of the bigger hotels. Thanks Julie for a warm and friendly welcome
