This is a beautifully kept property. Our room had a separate lounge - great for corporate travellers... Good value for money and the manager is very personable The restaurant is excellent - fine food, service and decor.

Right on one of the main roads so easy to find. Watched the Highlanders have a win in the semifinals of the... More

Fantastic help at reception even when we arrived about 5 mins before they were due to go home. Came over to our room made sure both cots were set up and we had everything we needed. Everything was just a breeze, facilities were good for what we needed.

We were traveling on business and needed a large comfortable Motel for one night before continuing further out west, so the large desk and comfortable lounge chairs made life very pleasant. A very clean and well kept Motel with a very helpful resident/owner to assist us.

An over night top as we drove from Rockhampton to Cloncurry, this was the perfect overnight stay. The rooms were very well appointed and the staff very helpful. Next time we pass through Emerald (or stay longer) we'll be heading straight to the Maraboon.

We really enjoyed our stay. Rooms are priced great. Very clean and very helpful people. I would stay here again any time. The restaurant at the Tavern in front of the motor inn is great for meals and entertainment. Access is great as you only have to walk through the motor inn and your at the Tavern.

I recently stayed at the Maraboon whilst travelling for business. The reception staff were friendly and informative, I was allocated to room 24. The location is quite which is great for a good nights sleep, although if you have a heavy case as I did - lugging it up two flights of stairs is not ideal. There is a small... More
