Locals recommend this motel as one of the best to stay at in town. Check in was smooth and friendly. I had room 36. It consisted of a separate bedroom with a good king size bed and a lounge area. It is a bit tired in décor but I found it comfortable, clean and suited the purpose. The newer air-conditioner...

Very clean rooms. Good parking located directly outside rooms. A little old fashioned decor. Located close to town. Offers a restaurant also, we did not choose to eat at this as it was steakhouse. Would stay again when driving through.

Nice and clean but lacks microwave in each room . Reverse cycle Aircon's are nice and quiet with a pool which is clean are all important features of a hotel/motel based in charters towers. Full size fridge and freezer are a nice bonus.

Spent a night on business with my wife as we did around 3 years ago. The Cattleman's remains very good value for money - nice clean comfortable room, cold beer and the best steaks around. Highly recommend for comfort, staff friendliness and of course- the steaks.

I had booked a night at the Cattleman as we have stayed here before on business. This time I was towing a trailer and the lady on reception advised me they had a number of break ins over the school holidays and would prefer me to go to another of their hotels. I ordered some food to takeaway which was...

We stayed for one night and the room was comfortable and clean. Large bedroom and the option of having a king size bed was nice. The bathroom was also large. Good for a family or a couple. We would stay here again. We didn't get to eat at the restaurant, as we had other things to do that night, but...

As a local i dine at this Restaurant often. Yes the price is different from other places in town but you dont get the menu they have on offer from Steak, Seafood options, Thai Green Chicken Curry, Mummas Meat Balls and i could go on good balanced menu! Main meals range from $25.00 to $40.00. The table service you get...

A spacious room with an in-house restaurant and undercover parking right outside the room. Staff were great and when someone had parked poorly making it difficult with my CAM boot, they moved us over one space without hesitation.

Rooms and service good but do not be draw in by the offer of onsite restaurant. Check the in room menu against the restaurant and find same meals for 1/3rd of price. We were warned by a local that this is the most expensive eating place in Charters Towers and gives nothing extra to what you will get else where....

Recently stayed here for a school re-union. The location of the motel was great, its an easy walk into the town centre, and the group facilities were also good > we used the pergola extensively. The room and bathroom were clean, but a little dated. Overall, a comfortable motel.

Thank Megan D
