Thank you Darren for your review. It's always great to here from constant travellers like yourself. Being on the road a lot would be very stressful by itself , I can imagine you would like nothing more than a nice , clean , comfortable room to relax in after your day. We are proud that we could supply that for... More

The Black Marlin is very well located and exceptionally clean. Right in the middle of town so it was great to be able to walk to the Esplanade for dinner and to the shops for supplies, we stayed 2 days for the Marlin Coast Netball carnival. We will certainly stay again next year. The only slight draw back (didn't worry... More

A great place to stay. We were part of the Townsville to Cairns Bike ride which stopped overnight in Innisfail. Excellent value for money. Good clean rooms and friendly owners. We were able to wash the riders cycling clothes that were wet and filthy from the rain and highway grime without having to wait at a laundromat and without additional... More

We stayed for 1 night as we were in Innisfail for a Netball Carnival. The Owners were extremely welcoming and friendly. The rooms are recently refurbished and are furnished well. The room whilst compact had everything you need with a table and chairs, TV, mini fridge and storage/clothes rack. Good value for money and comfortable beds. Sue (Owner) even washed... More

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.

Recently my 3 small children and myself had the pleasure of staying at the Black Marlin for 2 nights whilst visiting friends in Innisfail. 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...
