The owners have gone to a lot of effort to make the rooms modern and clean!! The personally touches of fresh milk and Rocky Road chocolates added our experience. Top that off with great service and its a great place to stay!!

New bed linen and big soft fluffy towels. The rooms are fresh and clean. Plus the best ever homemade chocolates as a welcome gift in the room on arrival. I have stayed at the Black Marlin before, but now that the owners Sue and Col are back they have made it so much better. They give it that wonderful friendly... More

We stayed at the Black Marlin for 3 nights in September. After 28 hours on the Sunlander train, we were looking forward to a bit of comfort. We walked from the train station not knowing what to expect as it was our first time staying at a motel in Innisfail. I emailed Sue the week before to confirm our booking... More

After a long day on the train and no sleep the night before it was with great pleasure when I opened the door of my room. Everything was spotless and very easy on the eye. I loved the little touches especially a filled kettle and the chocolates. I made my booking at the last minute and Sue was very friendly... More

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

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.
