“Have stayed before and will stay again”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

Dropped in for a night whilst travelling through town. I stayed in a motel room which is clean and comfortable and very well priced. All facilities and what you would expect from a $105 per night motel. Staff are friendly and the pub offers reasonably priced meals served with a smile. The rooms are very quiet and undercover parking is provided.

This is not 4 or 5 star accommodation, but it is well work a stay if you need a good night's sleep in comfortable surrounds.

Room Tip: All are as good as each other. Cabins are nice and can accommodate more people. I would stay in a...

As it was only an overnight stay we decided to get a motel unit instead of a cabin as it was cheaper. it was a nice comfortable unit which had the most comfortable bed. With no cooking facilities in the room we decided to have a meal in the hotel dining room. Something that was not a disappointment. The roast was a typical country hotel meal with lots of everything and very reasonably priced. The room had a funny smell but because there had been a lot of rain it could have been from that. Overall a suitable room for an overnight stay.

Thanks Ady60 for your review of our Hotel - we greatly appreciate it when guests take the time to comment. We are pleased you found your stay pleasant and enjoyed your meal in the dining room. The smell in your room was brought to the attention of the housekeepers immediately and we have reviewed smells from cleaning products and outside drains. We believe we have now rectified this issue.
Once again, thanks for your feedback and we look forward to welcoming you back to our Hotel.

While having to wait for removalists to arrive in Theodore the next day we decided to stop in and get a cabin for the night. Prices were better than reasonable and all the staff were friendly and helpful (even when i was being indecisive). The food was delicious and the menu had decent variety for all three meals of the day. Was disappointed that i didn't get to order breakfast in time (thinking of going back to do so) as i was too slack to read the menu. Noise wasn't an issue and if there was any the aircon drowned it out easily so we didn't hear a thing until morning when the cleaners decided to loudly talk outside for 20 min while we were sleeping. The room was a decent size with everything you would need for a decent stay, the beds were nice and firm but not too hard. The only thing i was thoroughly disappointed in was the free coffee, it was horrible. Overall it was a pleasant stay and I will be recommending it to everyone who has to stay in Theodore.

Thanks for your feedback Sohardtochooseaname - great name by the way! We appreciate all our guests' feedback and of course, especially like the positive comments. Following on from your feedback, we now try to ensure that all guests are aware of the time requirements for ordering breakfast and try to ensure that all you hear in the morning is birdsong on the riverbank, rather than our enthusiastic cleaners.
Your response led to quite a discussion on the coffee in the rooms - whether it was stale, the brand or was it just the town water. The jury is out on this one (town water vs rain water is an ongoing debate) but we do now ensure that complimentary tea and coffee are fresh. We'll have to tempt you next time with a coffee from our new automatic coffee machine in the Lounge Bar!
We look forward to welcoming you back to our Hotel.

We were travelling back from Mackay, we called ahead for a booking at Hotel Theodore, we were offered the choice of staying in the hotel, motel room or a two bedroom cabin quoting the price for each so there wasn't any surprises when we arrived. When we arrived nothing was a problem from the reception, the motel room to ordering our evening meal. The hotel, motel rooms and cabins have all been renovated, so everything was new, neat and extremely clean, it was a pleasure to stay. The price of the meals and accomodation was value for money. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anybody to check it out it will be well worth the visit. We will certainly be staying there as a halfway stopover from Toowoomba to Mackay and on the return trip.

Room Tip: all the motel rooms are ground floor level with undercover parking right outside your door. There is...

We were travelling through and decided last minute to stop at the hotel for the night. Very clean and modern facilities, you won't be disappointed (motel room) staff very friendly. Meal in the hotel was good and reasonably priced. This place has a lovely feel about it. The front of the hotel is very attractive with the well kept green lawns. My only complaint would be the shower head. The water wasn't coming out too well. Thanks for a good nights stay. Would stay again.

Stopped here on our way up to north qld. Called ahead from Miles and spoke to a lovely female staff member. She gave me a great description of different room types and we booked a motel room which is off to the side of the hotel. She asked me what time we would arrive and i told her around 8.30pm to which she told me the kitchen closed at 8.30pm and if we would like dinner to call ahead at about 8.00pm and they would make it and keep it warm until we arrived. On arrival we were given our room which was very new, modern, clean and comfortable. Motel room featured a queen bed and a single bed with a very nice and big bathroom and shower. Was very pleased with the room given the small size of Theodore. Reasonably priced at $105 per night also. It was a friday night and pub was pretty active with the locals, so i was glad i didn't get a hotel room above the bar as it may have been a bit noisy. Hotel room also has a shared bathroom FYI.

Only downside was the motel room had a very strong smell of cleaning products which overpowered us a bit and we had to air out the room. Room had a ceiling fan and air con so it wasn't difficult.

Overall was very happy with the room and would stay again.

Room Tip: Hotel room is above the sports bar and have shared bathrooms. Motel rooms are off to the side away...

Gorgeous old Queensland style hotel. The staff here are really friendly and the meals are good old traditional pub style, yummy and decent size. Rooms very clean and rates reasonable. Great place to stop after a long drive. Would go here again for sure.
