Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed in one of the apartments. It was immaculately clean, set well back from the road so very quite. Firm but comfy bed. Good undercover parking at the door. Very well equipped . An as new washer/dryer. Hot plates, fridge and freezer. Lovely bathroom. The lady who cleans the room was very nice and had an eye for detail ensuring the apartment was always clean and welcoming. We did find it took a very long time for hot water to reach the shower possibly because we had a room quite a way away from the gas tanks, but it does finally arrive and is nice and hot. There is also a balcony that catches the breeze. It would have been nice if a small webber type BBQ had been on the balcony. steak does not taste the same cooked in a fry pan as it does on a BBQ, also we were very away of the odor cooking steak in the apartment causes. A lovely place to stay.

Response from Rob Monk, Owner at The Atherton Motel
Responded 28 Nov 2023
Thank you so much for a lovely review! A BBQ sounds like a great idea for our apartments, we will certainly look into the pros and cons for them. We love to hear our cleaners are doing a fabulous job! and they love to hear it too :) Kindest regards, Shannon Monk

Pleasantly surprised at the size and fit out of the self contained rooms. Reception was welcoming and friendly. Plenty of parking. Is located next to a Chinese restaurant which is super convenient. One small housekeeping detail - fans and air con vents need some attention. But overall a great place to stay

We travel up to the Tablelands often this time it was myself and two young children (4 & 6) We have never stayed at the Atherton Motel generally stay at Air B & Bs. We will definitely be staying again! The location is only 10 minutes or so to Yungaburra, a picturesque town with plenty to see and do. We only stayed the one night as it was a last minute getaway. Some adventures we had were the Crystal Caves, went looking for platypus, The Historic Village in Herbaton (allow at least a good half day for this ) . The staff are very friendly and welcoming. Rooms are very clean. It felt very safe with my children and there is plenty of space for them to explore their lovely gardens. The price is very affordable. There is an amazing looking Chinese Restaurant next to the Atherton Motel, next time we will visit it looked very popular. Thank you so much for your kind hospitality.

Room and bathroom were very clean. Plenty of powerpoints, often overlooked by hotels. Good TV with Foxtel and good channels included. Kitchenette. Good range of Beers available at reception, saving the drive into town. Chinese restaurant part of the property. Not a bad stay.

A good stay. The rooms have been newly renovated so they were bright and fresh and clean. Being rather spacious rooms was a bonus. Copious amounts of hot water and a fabulously comfy bed were very welcome. Parking is also very close to the rooms behind the hotel. The restaurant served a really good dinner. We would have given 5 stars except the downside of the stay was the noise from patrons drinking in the outside area (right near our room until midnight).

5 star service from Caroline!!!! Excellent service, organised Foxtel so i could watch the cricket. Room was clean and spacious, highly recommend! Will certainly stay again when I am in the area playing golf. We should have more friendly places like this. Many thanks , Graham :-)

Over priced with equipment in the apartment that did not work. Reception did not care about this fact. Single beds very small and the pillow are just rubbish and that been kind. Better value motel in Atherton, try one of them for an enjoyable experience.

Over night stay on the "Savannah in the round" weekend as no suitable accommodation in or closer to Mareeba. Room was dated (not the luxury ones) but fit for purpose and reasonable tariff. Owners were very welcoming. Would consider again perhaps in the luxury suites.
