Stayed in Emerald for business you get your room nothing fancy obviously being a Motel in Emerald the rooms and clean and bathrooms not too bad either. The restaurant is 'okay' I think they're trying to make it something which it's not with very strict dress codes and very expensive menu items. The only highlight for the stay was the... More

If you're fussy about how your steak is cooked then the Western Gateway take the worry out of that. Beautiful cuts of meat are simply seared and served on a hot volcanic stone that you can finish cooking just the way you like it. All served with a choice of salad, steamed veges, chips and a variety of sauces so... More

It was during the Australia Day 2013 Queensland & NSW floods. We were travelling from Townsville when the Bruce HWY was cut by flood waters. So we had to drive back to the north and out to the west to get around. We found the staff very receptive to our needs and gave us an upgrade room with an hour’s... More

What should have been a simple business trip turned into a nightmare so bad I spent part of the night finding an alternate - and was glad I did. Staying "in" the hotel meant in dodgy apartments across the road - with no heating, broken window blinds and construction immediately outside the doors at 6am (we only discovered this when... More
