I arrived at the hotel early evening having driven down from Cairns and had a really good room that was large and comfortable. Deciding to go for dinner I ended up having a really odd experience. First I ordered rack of lamb that was incinerated even though I asked for medium rare. Secondly being on my own they sat me...

.I was a late arrival and didn't have a booking. Staff are welcoming and very helpful. The room was a decent size, modern and very clean. After long day driving it was great to find this place. Would recommend if visiting Emerald.

We were quite intrigued with the location of our room, tucked tightly into the corner of the property, and down a narrow path adjacent to a giant pump. We were though pleasantly surprised by the 2 bedroom apartment, with both rooms a nice size and a small lounge area included next to the strip kitchen. The hotel looks more designed...

Nice clean room, comfy bed, plenty of blankets and pillows. Staff are lovely and friendly, we dined at the restaurant and enjoyed our meals. We were going to dine two nights in a row but they weren't open on Sunday (which is fair enough). We were only staying 1 night but decided to stay another since we were so comfortable.

We had a short overnight stay and found it fantastic. A lovely clean, large room with a great bathroom with heaps of bench space. The meal in the restaurant was very enjoyable would highly recommend a stop over. I don't usually tip but I did this time very impressive with friendly staff.

Unfortunately, despite its relatively new age, the rooms already appear to be poorly maintained but clean. The location of the accommodation is central to everything in Emerald. I was...

Route 66 Motor Inn is a large very modern well equipped rooms. Disappointed that there was o free Wi-Fi (not even for 1 hour)in the units-you had to go the restaurant to receive it. Very short walk to town centre, local shopping centre and the botanical gardens next to the railway line(only two trains a week come through). Good undercover...
