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.

Turned up only to discover the 'family room' we booked for 2A & 3C on the internet did not exist.(Agent's fault, not the motel) Got the key and walked in to a tiny room with 2 beds... Near disaster avoided thanks to management offering an extra room. (at no extra charge) Perfect place if you need a clean, quiet and... More

this motel has a lovely setting - loved the sound of the running water in creek; comfortable bed; fast free wi-fi, value for money; bathroom dated but clean. I found area quiet for traffic. Didn't sample the home cooking.

We had the happy experience of staying in the 2 bedroom apartment for two nights October 2014. Very clean, spacious, full kitchen, good size fridge, tv, everything good more than what we needed. Sheets, pillows and mattress so comfy - thick towels, hot showers. The apartment is high set so be prepared for stairs. Good aircon which is reversible -... More
