Wow what a surprise, as a regular motel guest in regional Australia this ranks as one of the best I've stayed in. From reception staff to facilities and room, great!! Even have a gym and a pool on site. Meal was good and price okay.

Having a comfortable place to stay when away from home is provides a settling feeling. We were not surprised with the friendly and welcoming service as we have stayed previously. Looking forward to returning when next in Emerald.

We had a fantastic stay at the tavern The reception was very helpful and the rooms were very quiet and comfortable top stay in Emerald and great price. The food was very country and large be careful ordering an entree you won't finish your mains.

The room was clean, the reception was courteous & helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The restaurant was very good. I wanted for nothing. The motel is well positioned for my business in Emerald & my needs are well catered for.

Made very welcome by the proprietor and staff excellent facilities walking distance to most of towns restaurants shops and other facilities, also a good array of facilities within the complex. Would recommend a definite stay when passing through Emerald or stop over.

Nice room with better coffee, biscuits and toiletries than most in rural areas. Clean and spacious. Nice and quiet. Bed and pillows a tad hard. We travel and stay in motels a lot and found it a little bit expensive for a country town compared to city accommodation. Close to Maraboon Tavern.
