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

Just want to share my thoughts on the black marlin motel. It's not always easy to find somewhere to stay late in your travels, I found the black marlin and I'm so glad I did as I was welcomed with a beautiful room, clean, cozy and a comfy bed. What more could you ask for, the owners are very helpful... More

Great service, Caring staff, great clean and pretty rooms. They really looked after me, gave me great food references, and even went to extreme help to find a lost item. Close to many shops and food places.

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
