The Emerald Maraboon Motor Inn has everything a traveller needs to keep them comfortable . Huge comfortable beds, lots of towels, wi-fi and tv and space. Having a car park immediately next to the room doesn't hurt either. The Capricorn restaurent was excellent if a little generous but as I am not a man I can not find that a... More

Overall it's a lovely property. Good shower, comfy bed. I had a twin room which suited me as a single traveller but would have been a little tight for two. I'd stay again. But it's too expensive for room service. My work budget doesn't stretch to $32 as the cheapest main. There is takeaway across the road. But that's not... More

Nothing good, nothing bad to say, its just a typical motor inn. Has that usual motor inn bathroom smell that takes over the entire room. There are quite a few motor inn's in town, if I was to come back would chose one closer in to the main area that sells alcohol.

The rooms were clean and tidy and very well fitted out to a high standard. We had adjoining rooms to accommodate two families and the set up was very convenient. The staff were friendly and very helpful.

We booked online for a family room (4 adults) and were very pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to interconnecting rooms upon our arrival and our room rate was even discounted, which was an added bonus. Our rooms were located on the ground level. The two rooms were very well appointed with crisp bed linen and fluffy towels, kettle, toaster, microwave,... More

Booked at Emerald Maraboon on the basis of other reviews on Trip Advisor. Found the place easily after arriving in Emerald, checked in quickly and efficiently and was directed to a large two story building. We were disappointed to be given a room on the upper level which was a bit of a hike with heavy suitcases after 3 long... More

Room was really well cleaned, carpet was new and thick, towels also felt new and thick. Furniture was better standard than usual hotel standard, and bed was made nicely with nice linen. Felt like a more expensive room and really well looked after. Also the breakfast buffet is open from 5am, so good for those business trips when you need... More

It is well located to the town centre. It is clean and tidy with a friendly staff. It was a pleasure to find this quality in a more isolated location like Emerald. I was there on business and it was well suited for this purpose.
