Recently I stayed at the
. The stay helped me see the nearby Redcliffe Botanical Gardens
. The motel itself seems designed for medical professionals to stay near the Redcliffe Hospital
- especially given its spacious tables and accompanying comfortable work chairs. It also assists tourists with clean and comfortable facilities for motoring stop-offs in Redcliffe or for staying in Redcliffe to visit patients, or, just to enjoy the stay and take a look around.
So, in my deluxe queen room
for 143 dollars a night on new years day I got a covered car space, split system air conditioning, toiletries, an ensuite, a huge television, comfy yet firm queen bed, tea and coffee making and a generous early check-in coincidentally at the same time another guest checked in early. Yet there was a plethora of other features I never needed to use such as free Wi-Fi, iron and ironing board and five room types including family rooms
. I saw that the motel had a chair that could move in the staircase to transport guests for medical purposes - most of the motel's rooms were upstairs but a few ground floor options were possible. Hence I started realising the motel's strong link to the hospital and how that was linked to excellent management of the motel. Although staying on new years day doesn't let me see the motel when it is really busy, the manager at work when I arrived was respectful and delivered an early check-in while I got my car off street to the motel's covered spaces. He then offered to help with my luggage. It's always going to leave a good impression when the management can help out like that - regardless of any medical aspects of the accommodation.
This motel can be a mystery to be unravelled - due to 'just popping up from time to time' when I read about Brisbane area accommodation - it was also built and established in what I estimate as the last five to ten years. Hopefully I 'unravel the mystery' yet leave enough surprises to help readers especially in Brisbane try a stay or recommend to friends from out of town. I think some people find it a bit different due to its location in Redcliffe Central - near Kippa-Ring
on Anzac Avenue, such as being directly across the road from the hospital - because its reviews from Google
are slightly above four stars yet not as high as they could be, but I could appreciate this accommodation and its many positives are well explained on its thorough website
. Looking at the signage on the website it states it's supposed to be a quiet place to stay which I found out was true, the noises of traffic and motel customers really reduces around ten in the evening. An unusual yet welcome feature is the food and drink vending machines near reception along with the more commonplace breakfast pack - while a very spacious Ampol Foodary
is across the road on Livermore Street for food, drink and petrol. is at the corner of Anzac Avenue and Livermore Street, but this motel requires a U-turn if driving from Kippa-Ring as Anzac Avenue is a large, divided main road, but from Redcliffe, Livermore Street is an easy left turn off Anzac Avenue.
I was relaxing so much here on a public holiday that I could barely think in terms of reviewing. However, management had indeed checked me in early in a patient and efficient manner, and, it was stated in their table top laminated book customary to most motels to leave a review positive or negative, in this case positive. This motel had a businesslike effect and a compact design. My impression is families are definitely welcome but there isn't a swimming pool on site. That seems in line with the motel's businesslike effect in such a convenient location. An example of this good location is for those who like fish and chips - Morgan's
is in the neighbouring suburb of Scarborough for Queensland's most publicised fresh seafood and fish and chips.
On that note, Redcliffe is an eclectic combination of attractions, yet tourism is very important to the area. Some attractions included Gayundah Shipwreck and Arboretum, Settlement Cove Lagoon
, Moreton Bay boating, BeeGees history
, sunsets over the water surrounded by beaches good for swimming and views of the Glasshouse Mountains especially from the Houghton Highway
along with an aerodrome for small flights over the spectacular Moreton Bay Region. The Redcliffe Peninsula has got a spacious feel to it when compared to Central Brisbane yet is still quite busy and attracts many visitors to its resorts, motels and bed and breakfasts. All Moreton Bay region
attractions are accessible from and staff do try to help out with requests for tours.
Redcliffe involved the seaside, history, fresh seafood and much fun - with the being an ideal base to explore the surrounding Moreton Bay region and its many attractions.
