We arrived without a prior reservation and were welcomed by friendly owner and checked-in easily. Had a swim in the pool to cool down after riding all day. Room had chocolates on arrival and tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge in the room. Good location for a walk into town. Small bathroom and overall somewhat tired, but we... More

We have been blown away by the incredibly understanding, most gracious hosts that Col and Sue are here at the Black Marlin Motel. Let me tell you our story as to how we ended up at this little gem... After arriving at a motel en route to Innisfail (which advertised and told us they were pet friendly) we were swiftly... More

After a long trip, it was a nice surprise. Rooms are small but well fitted out. The hotel is off the main road so quiet, but close enough to walk to dinner. Owners were really helpful and the place is kept clean and tidy,

We've stayed overnight twice now and were pleasantly surprised by the rooms. The outside appearance doesn't indicate what you find inside. The rooms are really clean and nicely furnished. The towels are snow-white, large and soft and they give you REAL milk when you arrive. Even though close to the highway it is quiet, and is close to Innisfail's shops... More

We stayed at the BMM for a one night stop over as my husband had business in the area and i had a workshop to attend. Although the room was small, it was nicely appointed with two large bench tops, plenty of storage and good sized fridge. I found the bed a bit firm for my liking, but my husband... More

I arrived at the Black Marlin after a late-evening drive from Cairns after a flight. It's just a stone's throw from the highway on the way into Innisfail. I was pleased to find a room available. The welcome was genuine and warm - and included a jug of fresh milk (much better than the alternatives). The room was well-appointed and... More

Stayed one night earlier this week and was pleasantly surprised with the motel. From the outside it looks like a the old country motel of the 1960's. We received a warm and friendly welcome on arrival and was advised of the best places for a meal. The room was very clean and tidy and also well furnished and finished. The... More

The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. The rooms were clean and inviting. The hotel itself was within walking distance to the centre of town. Very affordable and value for money. Would highly recommend.

Absolutely recommend this motel. Very welcoming, clean, and accomodating. Last minute overnight booking as we were travelling and very tired. The owners even assisted us to park our trailers. Most friendly people we have come across this trip.
