Very welcoming.Rooms are spacious and very clean. Bed was comfortable and even had a heater for the cold night. Also offer meals at night with a nice menu to choose from that comes with a choice of deserts.

The size of the family room was adequate for 2 adults and a child. Lots of space for bags and room to move about. Bedding and cleanliness is on par with most well functioning motels across Australia. Facade of property is quaint, reminiscent of 50's or 60's style houses. Property is well maintained and neat, the greenery that envelopes it... More

Perfect location with a short walk to the town. There is a small selection of restaurants. The room was a good size for two people, it was clean and had all the essentials including a kettle and a TV. The staff were friendly on arrival. I would stay here again. Well priced.

First time staying here, was met with very friendly hospitality and were very helpful with what I had requested. The room was tidy and breakfast was lovely. Hope to stay here again, as its location is near the hospital. Negative point is guests that arrive around 11pm. They were quite loud.

Atherton Hinterland is a short walk into the town centre. The rooms and bathrooms seem to be newly renovated and are quite nice. They actually have shampoo, conditioner, real soap and quality towels - all of which seem to be in short supply in Australian hotels these days. I found the reception staff to be excellent and wanting to help.... More

This is a retired couple run establishment that is a bit tired inside and out but clean and comfortable nonetheless. Near the centre of town with nice gardens I would stay here again but only for a couple of nights.

Nothing special or fancy but it was a decent accomodation. It was clean and everything was provided. Good value for the money. We had a good night of sleep travelling through. Location is also good. The bats flying over in the evening you get for free ;)

Arrived to a booked room with friends in another room adjacent, easy to find, good price at $125 for a family room which slept 4 with ease. Microwave, toaster, cutlery, hair dryer, bar fridge and a complement of coffee and teas as usual, just take your own milk if you don't like long life milk. Clean and tidy rooms with... More

We took a budget room which was a bit tired and in need of a bit of a make over BUT it was Very clean, cheap and comfy. The staff were very helpful and gave us cutlery and a toaster so we could make our own breakfast each day. The bed was comfortable and the room was plenty big enough.

Room is tucked around behind main part of motel in a quiet garden setting, but still only a 1 minute walk to reception. Our family stayed for 2 nights and the room was more than comfortable for 4 adults and 2 children. The bedrooms are spacious as is the bathroom. Well equiped kitchen and good size tv.
