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 here for a few days, it was a lovely place to stay. Staff were friendly and so helpful.
Our room was spacious and well stocked, you looked out the back window and could see and hear the stream which made the room feel peaceful.
It is an easy walk down the main street from the hotel. We got a meal from the motel and it was delicious.
Would definitely recommend this place to anyone travelling to Atherton.

Our family of 4 stayed 2 nights and checked out today. Our room was quiet and a short drive/moderate walk to town. It was a squeeze for 4 people in the one room and the beds were extremely close and quite uncomfortable, I ended up swapping for one of our children's single beds for the last night and felt springs all night again. The bathroom was tight especially the shower and the wooden floor was loud to walk on in bathroom, amenity area. Had tea/coffee facilities, microwave and bar fridge inside room.

Nice comfortable stay close to town centre. Older property, but exceptionally clean and very comfortable with everything needed. Bed and pillows comfortable for a good night sleep - plenty of blankets for cold nights. Great location just a short drive or easy walk to the town centre - about 500 metres. Full size fridge and microwave with coffee, tea, plates etc. Plenty of storage space for luggage. Managers are very friendly and helpful. Shower has good hot water and water pressure. The perfect place for a relaxing night after a long day driving. Will definitely stay again.

A great motel to stay where you are welcomed with a warm smile and with great friendly customer service from owners to the cleaning staff.
This complex has all the facilities needed for a very comfortable stay.
Also the supermarkets are within a very short walk and it is an enjoyable walk, and there are so many other shops, take away shops and restaurants.
I thoroughly recommend this beautiful well kept motel to anyone without any hesitation.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and look forward to visiting again.
Our thanks to the friendliest team of wonderful staff who looked after us.

Stayed one night at this motel, in the back section. Our room was clean, and comfortable enough for a short stay. Location was convenient being very close to shops.

Across the road from the motel is the start of Halloran Park. Take a walk up to the summit for fantastic views of the city and valley below.

I had a one night stay with friends at this comfortable motel in a convenient spot in Atherton. The reception staff were friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. They even posted some clothing to me that I had left behind. Very clean accomodation. I plan to stay there next time I am in Atherton.

Neat/clean rooms within close proximity to the town centre and shops/pubs etc. Easy parking out the front of your room and friendly/helpful staff. Our garden room was nice, quiet and had a nice garden out the back. We found the guest laundry to be helpful during our stay.

Nice motel. Clean and unpretentious. Bed was comfortable and very close to most things in town. Great place to stay if you need to visit the hospital. It’s just across the road. Shops are just down the road and easy to get to the Main Street of town.
