“CLEAN TIDY ACCOMMODATION WITH FRIENDLY STAFF”
Reviewed April 21, 2009

We booked for our one night stay on the basis of what other reviewers said. We found what others said was correct, i.e. clean, tidy accommodation with friendly staff.

My visit to the Emerald Maraboon Motor Inn this month was my 3rd stay there, as a business traveller, in the last 4 years. It has never failed to impress and I look forward to staying there again.

I tried to book via the new 'Online Booking system', however it was unavailable so I booked via telephone, as I had done in the past. This property is often very busy (as are most places in Emerald due to the mining boom) so it is advisable to book early.

The property has a fine dining restaurant as well as a pub with several bars, a poker machine room, a betting shop, a bottle shop, a swimming pool and a bistro on the premises. On this occasion we ate at the bistro, feeling like a simpler style meal. In the past I have eaten at the fine dining restaurant and it has been excellent.

The rooms are comfortable, I prefer the single storey rooms rather than the rooms in the double storey block, and fortunately was assigned one of these rooms. It was quiet and had a mini bar stocked with soft drinks only. There is a bottle shop in the complex, so it was no problem to go there to buy a bottle of beer to take back to the room. There is also a supermarket a short walk away, across the road.

This hotel offers wireless internet access for AU$7 per day, I took up this option and it worked well.

We did not have breakfast at the hotel, as we had an early flight out to Brisbane. Check out was friendly and efficient. In summary, I highly recommend this hotel and look forward to staying here again.

  • Liked — Friendly, with a wide range of on-site facilities
