“For an overnight stay ... not bad”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

This was our second stay at the Cattleman's and it appeared that it was being renovated, Our room was one of the renovated ones and was clean and spacious with a comfortable bed. The reception staff appeared to be a little flustered when we arrived, but eventually we were booked in. As I have seen mentioned elsewhere, it was a shame that there was no vanity in the bathroom but this did not matter greatly for an overnight stay. Car parking was outside the room but there were no tables and chairs as we had remembered from before, and not many in the pool area either. The thing we missed the most and in all of our travels had not come across, was that there was no bedside clock/radio ... a small thing but you really notice the lack of when it is not there.

Our room was one which appeared to have been recently updated and was very comfortable and clean, and there was no road noise to keep us awake. The food in the restaurant was delicious and very well presented. The only problem was the service, as the restaurant was full and we were told that a lot of the staff had been given the night off due to Father's day. There were only two waitresses and they were run off their feet.

Been quite a while since we last stayed here - the best feature being that the quality of the steaks has not changed - the best in Queensland!

Room makeovers have been tastefully done with the best shower water pressure - unfortunately floods bathroom.

Will definitely return.

The room was ok but wasn't cleaned during our stay. The restaurant was below average. Took over 2 hrs for our meal and cold and crappy meal I understand they were a little busy but there during the delay there was no waitresses for drinks orders or any apologises by the waitresses .

Nice looking place. Our 11yr old son enjoyed the pool. Covered parking right outside the unit which was great. Fairly basic accommodation but clean and comfortable. One thing I didn't like was that there is no vanity unit/basin in the shower/toilet room so had to use the kitchenette after every toilet visit. I agree with one other reviewer that filling the jug from the sink was a bit of a mish.
We ate from the restaurant and though the meals were nice, I feel they were a wee bit overpriced. Paid $125 per night (stayed 2) which was $10 more than we paid anywhere else that was similar or better accommodation.
Unfortunately their WiFi doesn't work very well because of the brick walls, which was a bummer as we have our own business and needed to check up on emails, etc, but the receptionist went out of her way trying to get it working for us.
Every staff member we encountered in reception were really friendly, helpful and nice and are definitely an asset to the place.
Bottom line, would be happy to stay again.

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