This was a clean motel and priced appropriately. It is located about 4kms out of town so we ate at the restaurant. The meals were very good and reasonably priced. I would go back but don't expect the Ritz

Found this motel to be very affordable and one of the nicest in the area. Small and spartan rooms, but clean, quiet, and everything worked. We had a very nice meal with great service. Very friendly folks who run it.

We booked a room for three nights in early December. My main concern is that when we arrived at the reception area, the gentleman at the desk was talking loudly to someone from one of the phone companies. The phone was on 'speaker' so that you could hear both sides of the conversation. The gentleman did not acknowledge me in... More

We stayed here for two nights and found it to be a nice place to stay. The rooms were airconditioned, clean, quiet and comfortable. With a covered carpark out the front of our room. We would stay here again.

We travel to Atherton regularly and have stayed at the Atherton Rainforest Motor Inn several times. The rooms are always clean and the owners and staff always welcoming and ready and willing to assist. The meals are great, good honest food and plenty of it. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend this establishment.

Finding disabled accommodation on the Atherton Tablelands is hard. This motel has tried hard to be wheelchair friendly and we appteciated the effort. The room cosy an clean and the disabled facilities useable. Dining in the restaurant was an enjoyable experience. The owners were friendly and helpful and we enjoyed our stay.

This motel has all the basics and always clean. It is not 5 star, but doesn't pretend to be either. The food in the restaurant is great, and the service friendly. It is set on a large block, so has a nice country feel about it. There is a bit of highway noise, especially in the morning - however, being... More

Simple style, affordable. Nice location just out of town. Staff very friendly and good service. Had issue with Foxtel in my room, manager came immediately and fixed it. Have large open grassed area out front and it was great to see families playing football. I have stayed before and I will again.
