We arrived late in the afternoon and we required directions to the hotel. The receptionist helped us over the phone with these. The washing machine was out of order so the receptionist organised our laundry to be done on site . The staff were all very helpful.

A quiet spot just out of town (2 km) that is a motor inn. Rooms very much like a motel but no cooking facilities. Good restaurant on site with a surprisingly good menu. The food was good, better than the pubs in town, but probably about average standard. Good standard breakfast. Many of the rooms open on to a grassed... More

Excellent Motel. Spacious, good service and very comfortable. Room service breakfast was excellent even though it is expensive. I stayed 3 nights. It is a way out of the town of Emerald but I had a car. Very close to airport. The restaurant for dinner was poor, read my separate review.

We really enjoyed our stay in this clean and friendly motel. We stayed in the family room which was of a good size. The customer service was fantastic and we felt right at home. The kids enjoyed swimming in the pool, and the rooms were nice and quiet so we had a great night sleep. I would thoroughly recommend the... More

I stayed here in November 2013 and the service was outstanding, I stay on a lot of motels every year and this was my first time in emerald and this motel was recommended by a friend, and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone else. I will be back.

I stayed at Explorers Inn for three weeks in July / Aug 13 The room size was equivalent to that expected of a Major City Hotel. Room was clean & new modern construction & decor. I used the breakfast / dinner room service of which the restaurant food could only be described as exemplary . This is the only Hotel... More

We didn't expect it to be this nice... looks more like a hotel room than a motel. The free wifi didn't get to our room which was a shame, but the beds were comfortable. It's quite far out of town so only sleep here where you don't plan on going out.

Rooms are comfortable and are a standard model affair. Room also clean. Thick bath sheets are provided instead of towels which is a nice treat. Beads are very soft which is not my preference. Air-conditioner in the room has a damp smell when turned on. Rooms have a number of foxtel channels and also most digital free to air. Rooms... More

We made this our first stay on a return trip from Cairns to sydney. I would have to say that I was very happy with the size of the room and the cleanliness was first class! The bathroom was a little tired but was absolutely spotless. The bed was soooo comfortable, it was incredible. All the rooms in this smallish... More

Stayed here for one night on a work trip. Air con kept dying and not restarting, not great when it's so hot in emerald. Nothing special about this hotel, rooms fairly dark and dingy but clean and large. I'm sure there are nicer places to stay. It's just average for a mining town. Reception staff were nice.
