Stayed a week, we had an excellent cooked brekky most days - do try the omelette. The rooms are spacious and neat and tidy, the rooms along the railway and road can get noisy but not overly so. Dinner in the restaurant was very very good! Thanks Pat for taking care of us.

I have always stayed here when visiting Emerald. It is very comfortable, clean and you have everything you need in the room. The restaurant meals are good value and very filling. Pat and her team are all very friendly and accommodating. This is great value for money, and a handy location to all of Emerald.

I was staying here overnight for business and decided to dine in and I'm very glad I did. The food was very tasty and service was great. I had oysters and garlic prawns which weer both beautifully cooked. The waiters couldn't have been nicer they kept everything in the humming in the busy dining room.

What a very pleasant surprise to have found this restaurant... Impressive meal, matches the best of them... Beautifully presented and the taste so flavoursome. Material table clothes are a lovely touch. Impressed and would return.

We have been regular eaters at this restaurant, and after a time away, were welcomed back as long lost friends. The meals were excellent for all, and the service was up to standard. We noted that Monday was a quieter time than the rest of the week.

As a visitor to Emerald, upon recommendation by locals we booked dinner at Route 66 Motor Inn. The wait staff customer service was excellent, a pity that the main course did not match. Ordered entree which was nice, however the main was most disappointing. The bottom of the pork belly was burnt, caramelised sliced TIN pineapple and a big "No,... More

Mum had been talking about this place and she wanted to try it next time we can to visit her. So we willingly obliged. All meals where beautifully presented, and you not only eat with your eyes, but taste is also important. Good choice mum. We had a lovely and enjoyable meal.
