It had been close to 10 years since my last stay at the Black Marlin, and it was a pleasant surprise to find Sue & Col back at the helm. The newly furbished rooms are great. Sue does great meals, tasty and filling! Cut lunches for us workers also hit the spot. Hope we can get some more work down... More

We stayed at Black Marlin for 1 night on a driving holiday. Innisfail is in beautiful part of Queensland. A shock when we first saw Motel but rooms very clean & beds comfortable. The owner extremely helpful. Recommended a very good restaurant nearby. Would stay there again.

As you can imagine travelling with small children is a nightmare, new places/ sensory overload etc, but the Manager Sue made both my children and I feel like a member of the family. She cooked us...

I must congratulate Susan and husband (Owners) on all of the above. I was welcomed as soon as I arrived and was relieved to walk into - my appealing, comfortable, modern... More

I was recently in Innisfail on business and stayed at the Black Marlin Motel. Upon check in the staff were extremely friendly and also steered me in the right direction for some fantastic local seafood. The room was newly furnished and very clean and comfortable. An absolutely fantastic motel to stay in and so close to everything.

Innisfail is not blessed with many hotels and motels so if you are looking for a decent place to stay get there early or you will be left will lots of places where you would not want to stay. The Black Marlin is one of those. It is located in a somewhat commercial area. The manager was not on site... More
