I accidentally booked a room too small for the family. The staff went out of their way to find something suitable at a price we could afford. Many thanks. We stayed in the two room unit and can definitely recommend it. Everything you need including free wifi.

Stayed here with 4 adults and two kids in portacots. Managed to fit in nicely. Two bedroom apartment was very clean and had everything you could want. The only negatives were access to the unit as you have to go around the back of a section of the hotel and its a bit of a hike with lots of baggage.... More

My partner & I were looking for a last minute motel to stay in Atherton. We found the Atherton Hinterland motel online & phoned approx 30 mins before arrival which was around 5.30pm on a Monday evening. The rooms were very clean in a cute rainforest cotttage-style setting. Just what we needed to refresh & recoup after spending four freezing... More

Very pleasant room overlooking creek in a peaceful rainforest setting. Undercover parking and outdoor seating a bonus. Very much appreciated home-style dinner to room. Walking distance to supermarket and town centre.

Friendly couple own and run the motel. Pleasant garden setting at the back, fronts onto a street, but is a quiet town, so quiet at night. Rooms are better quality than most. Ours had a queen bed, newly-renovated bathroom, and green view through back window. Delightful weekend stay.

Stayed here a few times. Rooms are very clean & the place friendly. Having to have your dinner order in by 6.30 can be a little hard if you're working business hours and arrive late. My concern is getting one of the old rooms. Never again! Clean but ridiculously dated & tired. It's like two different motels. Just hope you... More

I liked the position of the Atherton Hinterland Motel. It was really quite close to the centre of town, but was nestled in beside a creek in the rainforest. This meant that we could hear the creek through an open window, and were not conscious of any traffic. The room was quite adequate, although I think some of the other... More

Quick trip to the Tablelands. Stayed here on short notice. Owner friendly and check in straightforward. Room tidy with all you need, fridge and microwave. Breakfast was awesome, kudos to the cook , the poached eggs were perfection. Definitely on my booking list when next traveling north.

I spent one night in the motel, arrived at 7.00 pm and was told that meals had already closed. There was no mention of rules for breakfast. Went to town for a meal. Returned and settled into the room which was cold and damp; the weather was cold and damp, but all the windows to the room had been left... More
