Room Tip: I would chose a room not to close to the road as you can hear the road trains all night

This is a nice motel I stayed at while dropping children off for boarding school. The staff were very friendly and professional and the room I booked had 2 rooms which was great. A little dated in the decor but comfortable enough. At the time I was there we had a corner room and the internet didn't work well out there, far from the main office so be warned to check this out if it's important to you. I had to sit in the office to get some work done and use Skype but the staff were courteous about this. Although I didn't eat there, the steak restaurant looked very nice and I'll give that a try next time.

We had a poor experience of a hotel in Charters Towers which resulted in us having to move late one evening in November 2012 into the Cattleman's. We were treated with total care, professionalism and understanding by the staff. Dinner was held for us so we could relax after our bad experience and nothing could be too much trouble for the Hotel Duty Manager. We were very grateful and slightly disappointed that we couldn't stay another night as our travels were taking us on to Cairns.

The motel room was of a good size, fitted out with a nice table and chairs as well as a lounge. The motel is reasonably close to town, about a 15 minute walk. There is a steak restaurant on site but we didn't eat there but seems to be very popular. The hotel was a good price for its star rating particularly given it is in a mining town. Parking available off street and directly outside your room.

I stayed her in Nov 2012 and earlier in 2012.
My recent trip was as good as the first. The motel is located close to town and easy to find.

The service is always brilliant - very friendly and able to assist with good local knowledge.

The room had a large comfortable bed and all the basic that I needed for a good night. I enjoyed a tasty meal from their restaurant although it took a lot longer than I expected. I noticed a well stocked bar and several stools for people to relax.

This is one of the better motels in town and good value.

What a shabby experience this was!! Never again would I stay at this motel. Just look at the furniture. The restaurant experience was similar, steaks tough, vegetables cold and uncooked and $35 a steak to tope it off. The room price $125.00. Can you believe it! The caretakers need a scrub up, covered in tattoos and piercings and rude at that!! Don't believe the photos on their web site. Plenty of other accommodation in Charters Towers.

Room Tip: Cabins in the caravan park are beautiful and the same price.
