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.

Stayed for a few nights on business. Rooms are clean and well presented and very friendly staff. Just lost out on the fifth star due to poor wifi. I needed to use the wifi for work, when it did work it was a very low strength signal. All in all a great stay and thankyou to the staff. Oh, and... More

Took a punt on this place, the travel agent wanted us to stay elsewhere. We were pleasantly surprised. A great little place with comfortable beds and quiet air conditioning as well as free wifi. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food in the on -site Capricornia Restaurant was amazing.

I was in the upstairs cheap rooms and they have a kitchenette, very good sitting chair for the TV. I got far more than I expected for the price. The motel is located behind the Tavern which have very good facilities.

The motel is in a quiet location a little way from the centre of Emerald. The welcome was very pleasant. We had prepaid the accommodation and, as a result in prices being lower when we arrived, we were given and upgrade to an executive room. This was a one bedroom apartment with a mice living area with separate bedroom. The... More
