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

I've stayed here many times over the last few years, and everytime I do, there is a problem with the wifi. The problem is never the same, but for some reason, it just struggles. This is not hard to get right, and in this day and age, it's becoming an expectation... In this instance, Maraboon is below expetation. I will... More

Dear Snoozer, It's disappointing to hear that your internet didn't work on this occasion. It's a bit unfortunate that your blaming us for a possible problem from our upstream provider, a simple phone call to our reception office would of helped you out. If the internet was unavailable from our upstream provider which sounds like it is the issue in... More

Family friendly. Loved the idea of adjoining rooms. Spacious, clean, comfortable beds. Adjacent to shops, cinemas and the tavern. Delicious meals. Friendly service and very homely. Only wish we had stayed longer. Swimming pool was very clean. Staff were very efficient and kind.

Close to town and amenities, clean, well appointed and comfortable room with excellent air-con (quiet too), no noise from traffic and a pleasant little pool. Very friendly staff made me feel very welcome, and the free broadband was good once I figured out how to use it.
