The pictures are of the buffet breakfast.
Dinner took just over an hour for Surf and Turf ordered Medium rare... it came well done.
The cook responisble for both of the above, was getting messy sitting at the bar drinking "double shot of whiskey with 5 ice cubes", telling bar staff that the other bar staff are better because they know what he likes.
However, that night, another chef did an awesome job with the duck!

My daughter arrived in Emerald to visit a Niece who is studying at the Emerald Agricultural College. We arrived about 5pm, had a very easy check in, they told us about the restaurant which we didnt use but it look lovely and we will proberly use it next time as it looked lovely.
We were only there for 1 night but will be back, as the Ag College is very close. The room was a Spa room and was only $4 more than a normal room. The bed was very comfortable and my daughter wanted to take the sheets home. The pillows were very plump and the couch very comfortable.
The rooms are all set around the pool area, we did not have a view of the pool but the layout was still very nice.
The staff was very nice and answered every question we had.
Our only complaint was that there was a piece of used soap left in the bathroom and many of the light switches were faulty but still worked fine.
We will be visiting Emerald again several times in the next 2 years and intend to stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: The spa room was only $4 more than a normal room.

We stayed for one night and while the rooms were clean and comfortable there were a couple os issues.
First the pay TV was not working which meant I couldn't watch the football on the Sunday we were there. Pay TV is a selling point for motels so this was a minus. I can understand that the hosts couldn't get this issue fixed (for another three days I was told) but I still had to pay the standard tariff without the service. The host didn't advise me there was no ay TV when I checked in.
Also the restaurant was closed because of a private function although room service was available. Again, I can understand their need to make a buck but it was at the expense of limited service for me.
Also, the motel is a long way from town. They do advertise on their site that they have a courtesy bus but there was no mention of it when we checked in. We had a pizza delivered.
A reasonable motel but maybe they could try a bit harder to show that they value your patronage.
