Quick overnight visit to Emerald where I stayed the night at the Maraboon. Rooms were very, very clean together with friendly staff. Had dinner at Cap, next door which was great. However wouldn't go back for breakfast....food was cold and wasn't worth $21.00.

We stayed here 3 nights for work. Very spacious complex with plenty of room for parking. The tavern is only a few steps away for a good meal and drinks. Other take away restaurants within walking distance. Good service from the hotel staff. Rooms very big enough and clean.

The room was clean and comfortable, and each room has designated parking spacious enough for 4WD, which is useful considering the majority of occupants are miners. One thing for visitors to be aware of is that there will be some noise between 4am to 6am as the miners head off to work; something that is unavoidable in a town like... More

Welcoming and friendly staff, motor inn is centrally located with great attention to space for parking and walking around. The rooms are likewise modern, spacious, well equipped, a comfortable bed and private outside seating area. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, even down to getting some fresh milk for coffee! Would definitely stay again and recommend.

We stayed 2 nights in a lovely room with a comfy bed, lounge area and very clean bathroom area. We dined at the restaurant both nights and the food was divine. The service was amazing, the staff were friendly and we also had lunch at the tavern which is attached to the hotel. The food there was just as good... More

My highlight was walking out to my car to find a staff member cleaning my windscreen after travelling all day - It was covered in bugs and bird poo and the cleaned it for no charge. It is the little things like this that make my day! Room always clean and tidy and well presented - With a comfy bed.

Stayed 1 one night while visiting someone in hospital. All ground-level rooms, parking at the door, very clean rooms, all quiet (no road noise). They have an adjacent tavern for bistro-style food and their own fancier restaurant. We chose the restaurant and the crispy-skin atlantic salmon was superb. I know this will sound trivial, but I noted that the quality... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Good size rooms with very comfortable bed. Have stayed here several times. Can definitely recommend the Capricornia Restaurant right next door for dinner but breakfast was overrated and expensive.
