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.

Excellent service and attention - with a smile from Sue Nicely decorated rooms, thick towels, very clean and quiet. I was there for one week for work. A pleasure to stay and will again if I am in Innisfail.

Only a 1 night stay but wasn't arriving until after midnight and the owners had everything sorted for me after a phone call 2 days earlier. Room was spotless and the beds was comfortable. The towels were some of the best i have had and i tend to spend about 50 nights a year in hotels. It might be old... More

Just a small family-run motel. All rooms had parking at their front door - no stairs to drag luggage up. The room was the most attractive hotel/motel room I have stayed in on this holiday. We were provided with a jug of fresh milk for tea and coffee. Good air conditioner and comfortable pillows and bed. A small package of... More

A big thank you to Sue and her staff for accomodating our family in a time of need. The motel is comfortable, clean and central to all amentities (shopping complex, takeaways, fuel station, laundromat) Sue was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Thank you on behalf of Grant, Tracey and Ainsley Dowdeswell.

The best motel I have ever stayed at. Very clean and spacious rooms. The friendliest management and within walking distance to all shops and ffacilities. Free WiFi is available plus a pet friendly motel. Will definitely be staying here again when visiting Innisfail. 5 / 5 Stars
