We had an urgent need, late at night, to accommodate 6 of us, and the owner answered the phone and put together a family room at very short notice. The room was clean and well setup, with quality bedding, and it was comfortable for us for 2 nights. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and their BBQ basket was...

Have stayed here a few times and have never been let down. Very clean rooms, helpful and considerate people. I made use of their BBQ kit and was able to invite a few colleagues from the office I was visiting to join me for a BBQ near the pool.

Stayed in the upstairs 2 bedroom unit for 1 night. Quite large self-contained apartment with big living area, dining/kitchen and good bathroom with washer and dryer. Air-conditioning throughout. Simply furnished and clean with comfy beds. Nice pool with BBQ. Reception staff very friendly, onsite parking, across the road from the Mareeba markets. Short drive to main street shops.

Beautiful, relaxing, clean, friendly helpful staff. What more do you need? Our room was very spacious, spotlessly clean. The gardens and pool area are just lovely. Would recommend this motel to anyone. Well dont owners.

The 2 bedroom unit was just perfect for our needs. From our phone enquiries, to our arrival and overall stay, we couldn't have asked for better accommodation and service - we could have comfortably stayed for much longer.

We were part of a large group staying for a wedding. The motel is located on the edge of town just across the road from the information centre. Our large old style room was clean and bed super comfortable. The rear door of the motel room opened up onto a lovely garden and BBQ area. The motel supplies a BBQ...

I stayed at the Jackaroo Motel in early February, I had a large room with three beds in it, the bathroom was also spacious. The room had a mid size fridge, A/C, large screen tv, and a work bench. The breakfast was good and the service excellent. My only gripe was the road noise, it's noisy until 10pm and it...

I read the reviews for this hotel and then booked. I too was very happy with the room and facilities. The servcie was good, the rooms have been updated, look fresh, inviting and my room was really large. The room was also very clean. I would certainly recommend it.

Having visited Mareeba many times and staying at other locations I was very pleasantly satisfied by Serena and the team at Jackaroo. They take a genuine interest in your comfort and will make you feel a part of the community. Rooms are extremely spacious and Serena has put a touch of "ying and yang" around the pool area and reception....
