A great little motel. Clean and tidy rooms. The owners are friendly and have great local knowledge. We stayed here before taking a tour of the waterfalls and tablelands. The restaurant is excellent. Compliments to the chef!

The Barrier Reef has existed for twenty plus years but I have never stayed in the motel till this visit. My room was clean, comfortable and cool. The staff was helpful and... More

I stayed at the Barrier Reef Motel for 3 nights whilst in Innisfail for work. The motel in on the highway on the outskirts of Innisfail, it's not really within walking distance of the city centre, well maybe 20 minutes or so if you are keen. The staff at the motel are simply superb, very welcoming and attentive. The rooms... More

I have stayed here a quite a few times over a 20 year period and it is honestly the best motel in Innisfail. During March I was staying there regularly and the staff were friendly and helpful. The meals were great and the steaks melt in the mouth stuff. They have nice takeaway espresso coffee which is very handy in... More

Stayed at the Barrier Reef Motel on the Easter Saturday. We had planned to spend the day at Paronella Park and wanted somewhere convenient to stay. We chose the Barrier Reef as it had a restaurant and pretty good reviews. Check in was very hospitable and helpful. We decided to drop bags and head out. The room was really your... More

What an awesome experience. The room was clean the bed was awesome. The highlight for us was the FOOD! The dinner in the restaurant was out of this world then breakfast this morning was an outstanding way to finish off our stay. We were lucky there was only one standard room left when we booked in. management is more than... More

We were suprised by the room at the Barrier Reef Motel. When you enter, you might think it's a workers place. The rooms are nice, clean and spacious. We stayed for 1 night. The friendly staff helped us planning our next days on the road in Queensland with helpfull tips.

I come on business every 3 months and I have to say that my stay here was a pleasant surprise. Check-in was great and the staff very friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable and the water pressure (which is extremely important) was great. Dinner was fantastic and the feel of the restaurant was relaxed and friendly. (Dinner was... More

I choose this motel several times each year when in Innisfail. The Restaurant serves great meals, that are also well priced. The rooms are practical, but still very comfortable. The hosts are helpful, and very friendly. Always perfectly clean.
