Recently stayed for two nights over a weekend. A big family group booked several rooms. Found the rooms nice and clean with comfortable beds. We used the function room for get-togethers - this was just great! The staff/managers we found very friendly and helpful. We used the Pagoda Restaurant for both takeaways and dine in - great food. Thanks.

The last time I had stayed here was in 1977 with my parents. In 2013, I decided to finally take my family there. Albeit, we had other opportunities but I was out voted. Arrival is friendly and cordial and the room was clean. Although the motel itself is old it certainly isn't in disrepair. We decided to avail ourselves to... More

We were recommended to this place but would not recommend to anyone else. We are unsure if there are any decent motels in the town. We were told after the fact that the caravan park has lovely self contained cabins we could have used. We will not be staying here agian in fact unsure if we will bother staying in... More

We enjoyed a two night stay here in late September 2012, and were extremely happy with our visit. Our room was clean, comfortable, good value for money, and offered a lovely view from the patio outside the sliding door. The room was certainly large enough that we had plenty of space and never felt cramped. We were very impressed by... More

This motel was clean and comfortable Three and a half stars. The gardens and outlook from the units are worth enjoying. Staff are friendly and the adjoining chinese restaurant is good value with excellent food. A good central position to explore the Atherton Tablelands.

After reading the good reviews this motel had we stayed here one night on our way through the Tablelands. The rooms might be alright for just a couple but for 4 people it was very tight for space. The cutlery in the kitchen was virtually non existent to the extent we had to borrow some from the dining room even... More

It is a 3.5 star hotel. Good service. Thin walls and a bit out of town but that allows it quietness and some views. Breakfast was simple and hearty. The owners obviously care for their guests. Nice sitting area outside of the room.

For a family of 4 we were disappointed with the room. We were crammed in one room with the kitchen, double bed, single bed and a bunk bed all squashed together. The bunk beds were terrible mattresses as they were super soft so you could feel the springs underneath. Woke up with a sore back from the bad posture all... More
