“Big rooms, lovely and clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

Was a great place to stop, the owners are very friendly, easy access to parking and very spacious. No restaurant however the rsl delivers pub meals and they were lovely. A short distance from the centre of mareeba and within walking distance

After experiencing other local accommodation in Mareeba in the past, this is a great place to stay. Comfortable rooms, very large parking bays and very nice people. They went out of their way for me and I had a very enjoyable stay. I would recommend to all.

Nice and neat & clean but a little out dated and over priced. The service was a bit bland and the business did not seem interested in servicing their customers. At $135 per night I was expecting pay TV, breakfast included and an attached restaurant but found it lacking on every count.

Jackaroo motel in mareeba was a very un-expected super nice place to stay.
For the size of the town it was way tidier than I expected, with huge room , hot modern shower, comfortable bed and very little road noise for being on a main road.
Ordered my meal from the RSL , which is promptly delivered to the door and billed back to the room. It was a very large meal and served hot and delicious.
Overall a great place to stay, with the lady in reception friendly and very helpful.

Definately recommended!

Had a one night stopover here for work and was quite impressed to find such quality in a small town so far from the normal tourist areas. Greeted by a very friendly gentleman whose name escapes me, and he quipped that l could have a party in my room it was so big! He wasn't wrong either, l couldn't believe the space l had in that room. Good value, clean and tidy, and comfortable. Recommended
