I stayed here for a 3 day school sporting event with my teenaged daughter. Considering the age of the property it has been well maintained and I found it very clean. The daily cleaning service was a pleasant surprise. The deco is a bit long in the teeth but everything was functioning, clean and comfortable. The staff were very helpful... More

I spent 3 nights at the Bert Hinkler in a newly renovated room on a business trip. It was very comfortable and a quiet room with no highway noise. The staff were friendly. Pricing was high I thought but the other motels in town had no vacancies so I grabbed the room. I think it was good value for money.... More

Travelling for business and I cannot manage to sleep - at all. The walls are paper thin, the air-conditioner is insanely loud, I have an ants nest living in the bathroom and to top it off I paid $30 for a dinner that was not properly cooked. I am profoundly disappointed in the cleanliness of my room and the fact... More

Two motels seem to have been joined together. In days gone by they were both probably the best in town. The restaurant could pass for an 80's TV set, everything is original - location scouts take note. My room (#1) was pretty bleak and in dire need of refit.

We booked this motel sight unseen. Are regular visitors to Bundaberg and this would be the worse place we have stayed in. Difficult to find Reception (turned out we had to negotiate the path to the motel next door). Being a Saturday night there was no full breakfast offered for Sunday (despite the breakfast menu left in the room) and... More

We stopped in here on our way home. We pulled up at the Country Comfort motel next door and was told they both have the same owners. I have stayed at the Country Comfort before but as the Comfort Inn was $30 cheaper, we thought we would be fine. This is a very basic motel. No crockery or cutlery, and... More

I've stayed twice at this motel (not by choice) and have to say that although the room was comfortable I don't think it has had any upgrades since it was built in the 60's/70's. Very dated decor, TV and fridge are tiny. Bathroom is overdue for renovations by at least 20 years. Both times there I've been woken both late... More

We selected this motel when suddenly requiring two nights accommodation in an unfamiliar location. The tariff was attractive as were two recent reviews by Trip Adviser contributors. We anticipated a Friday midnight arrival after a long day trip. We were advised when the booking was made that office hours were 7 am to 7 pm. We were told to ring... More

This was my first stay at Bert Hinkler and I was not disappointed. The purpose of my stay was for business in the area and The Bert Hinkler came highly recommended from a colleague that frequently stays. I cant fault the facilities and the evening dinner in the restaurant had good food friendly and helpful staff.
