Pat is the manager and she does whatever is needed to make your stay enjoyable, the rooms are fresh and clean, the restaurant and bar are the best in town, rooms are air conditioned and very comfortable, stay here if visiting Emerald QLD

This hotel was great value for money. We stayed in the Deluxe Queen room and were not disappointed. Rooms were clean and spacious. We had dinner in the restaurant and the meals were fantastic and of good portion sizes. Staff at the hotel were helpful and I would come back here again.

I typically stay in 5 star places so was a bit worried before checking in. Was hopeful though about the name :) It was great though. I'm always scared about motel pillows. Have bad dreams thinking about all the scanky action that take place in beds in non-descript motels in remote areas such as this! No 5 star accreditation to... More
