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.

A warm welcome greeted us on our arrival after a long road trip to stop here overnight. Very friendly and informative. Rooms clean & spacious with plenty of refreshments. Pretty quiet but with easy access to a variety of different food choices. Would recommend & probably stay again if in the area

Basic room, some items in the rooms could do with updating. Eg Room 41 dvd player. Room 33 aircon and dvd player. Good beds/pillows. Free internet but very slow at times. Excellent food from restaurant. Good service from the front desk people. Would stay there again.

This was the second night of a bike ride on a long weekend. I booked this place because of the reviews on trip advisor. I should have done more research as it wasn't really what I wanted. I wanted a cheap room centrally located. Although I new the price when I booked it, I should have looked at the location... More

Great place very clean, great young ladies at office. Hard to choose between the tavern and restaurant so we had drinks at tavern and dinner at the restaurant both were great. Restaurant food and service was exceptional and all of this in the same complex. Would definitely recommend very well managed.

Spacious clean rooms. We had a family room right near the pool. Lots of driveway for kids to scooter and a nice pool. Great food at the adjoining tavern. 5 minute walk to a small shopping centre and a few take away places for convenience.

Within walking distance of town and restaurants, important when you don't have a car ( flew in). The staff were extra helpful and the room we were given was well set up for all the work we had to do, table space and power outlets. Definitely staying there again

Emerald Maraboon Motel was a perfect option for a one night stay for business. The room was very clean and well appointed, and the onsite restaurant was convenient with good food. I didn't use the WIFI, but was provided with the password for in room use.

We stayed over the long weekend where we booked at short notice. We enjoyed a lovely friendly reception upon check in and a good private stay. We stayed in a huge ajoining room ideal for family. Great location, great restaurant, nice and clean and comfortable. Very quiet. Nice to stay somewhere with a lovely friendly team. Thank you :)
