Stopped here in the way home to Darwin, after a storm and we didn’t want to set the van up. Great hotel, very clean, staff very nice. Had a nice clean room with a room for the kids. Very comfortable and we ordered breakfast which was amazing. Very nice.

The staff could not be more friendly, helpful or obliging. The restaurant has some of the best meals I have ever had the pleasure to eat and the rooms are just lovely! Well maintained and wonderfully kept. Easy access/parking for all vehicles and despite being right on the highway, noise was minimal. We changed our travel plans specifically to be able to stay here! Thanks so much everyone, you made a long and exhausting trip worth it!

Friendly staff, well priced, clean rooms. Spent two nights here on the way through and can’t fault the Abacus Motel. Air-conditioning with ceiling fans, enough space for bags, on-site laundry and only a short drive to the Mount Isa restaurants, cafes and shops. Apart from some traffic noise (no reflection on venue as it is further off road) I’d definitely recommend!

Very obliging and friendly staff, keen to assist. Location is ideal for road travellers and good access and parking for heavy vehicles and drivers needing to comply with fatigue laws- a big shoutout to Desley for all her help

What a great place, fantastic staff, motel room clean and food in the restaurant was great. Food was tasty and the bar prices reasonable. This place is a great allrounder. Close to the Highway however noise was minimal. Try the garlic bread!
