Not many options in Moura and the room I had was dated, pretty small and need attention. The food is very good the restaurant was busy and I can see why, good choice and the facilities are very good as well. They do have donga/cabin style accommodation that may be more updated.

On advice from a local we went to this pub and were surprised from the menu selections. Not what we expected from a pub. I have dined in many restaurants and this was on the top with presentation and service. I had the King pork rib and my friend the steak cooked as per instruction. Thanks to the staff

Rooms are very average, but are reasonably clean although for the rate they charged i have stayed at alot nicer places for less. I have found on the few times i have stayed that the food is very average . Not much value for money at this place :(

The loud fifo's aside this place is nice and neat. Good amenities, good service and clean rooms. Call ahead if you are planning a last minute booking, ask about the amount of company bookings they have - there is nothing worse than the stomping in steel caps of intoxicated lads late in the evening. Would stay again.

I stayed in the cabins. They have a good layout and very functional, with a nice verandah out the front. The food is delicious and well worth a meal. Unfortunately my cabin "shook" when the AC kicked in or someone moved around on the verandah or in the next room. The room needed a better vaccume and it stank a...

It'll do for a night, but you won't get worse value than any sort of accommodation in close proximity to a mine. For the cost, it's very run down, but the staff are nice and the rooms are air conditioned.

I stayed here over night on a long drive from Bris. I was initially interested at the price online at $111 for the night including a cooked breakie. There was an option for a cabin or motel room. The room was clean, bikkies were great in the room! Staff were very warm and welcoming and from what I gathered the...

There's not much choice in Moura - just 2 motels, but a new motel is being built close by. Be prepared this motel is priced for the mining industry so low value. Not much that would recommend the CnC - check in is matter of fact, rooms are small and stained sheets! The restaurant at breakfast time should be condemned...

This is a copy of an E-Mail I sent to the Hotel management. Hi, Here is our view of the Coal n Cattle in Moura and I have attached your customer forms. We booked via the net for a Queen bed, private cabin with en-suite. On arrival and after a 10 minute wait at reception I was given a key...

“If you have to stay - get a room at the back, away from the road and the motel. The motel residents will start early - be prepared for vehicles starting from 04:30”
