Nice enough room but absolutely terrible pillows. The air-conditioner made a constant whine which meant I couldn't use it overnight - luckily the weather was mild. A bit of traffic noise, but that might also be because I'm not used to it. (Amazing how much traffic goes through Emerald!) But the rooms are nice and the bathroom and shower was...

From the staff to the owners and the rooms,this motel is the best. I was stranded in Emerald due to flight and train cancellations after flooding in Carnarvon Gorge. It was my worst holiday ever but got a little ray of sunshine from the friendly and so helpful staff here. They went above and beyond what they had to for...

All our party felt this motel was very overpriced, not value for money at all! The pillows were terrible, the sofa bed no better than a camp stretcher and there was no wifi as advertised. There was no staff there all weekend to consult when needed. One of the reasons we booked this motel was the pool and spa because...

A small but comprehensive evening meal menu. Was able to also take advantage of their 2 for 1 main meal deal ( by using a shopper docket from the local supermarket) Meals range from $17 to $28. Excellent friendly staff. Good small selection of wine. Very tasty food. Would recommend to anyone, who is after a little class.

Not a bad spot at all, easy to find. Good rooms, comfortable beds, modern rooms that are nice and big, awesome shower and bathroom facilities. Awesome pool but not very big. Was here on a work trip with a big group of us and they accommodated is pretty well.

I had an unexpected stay courtesy of the airline when my flight back to Brisbane was cancelled. The motel kept the kitchen open and handled the sudden influx of tired passengers cheerfully. Good (if expensive ) dinner and clean, comfortable room with good bed and shower. Breakfast was a buffet with an excellent frittata/ omelette.

Stayed here overnight in what they called a upstairs $99 room....which is code for dirty. Cockroaches in the bathroom, ants all through the room even in my bed and dirty cutlery and glasses....clearly housekeeping just assumed they were clean but they were not. Restaurant was nice except you could see in the kitchen and see the chefs sniffing food and...

I stay here on business fairly regularly and the room is comfortable enough and the service is good on Check in etc... The food in the Restaurant is OK not anything special but just OK. The Pork Belly I had was a little overcooked but the rest of the food was OK.
