We enjoyed our stay. My husband was most impressed with the two comfortable reclining chairs with foot stools in the suite we had. It was a lovely spacious room with a comfortable bed, very clean, and had all the facilities we required. We will return when next in Emerald. Thanks Dennis.

Very clean and comfortable rooms, everything you could ask for. They are well set up for business with luxury office chairs and a large workspace. The food omg I'm sure they mainly cater for miners, the meals are huge, extremely yummy and very affordable. And last but certainly not least the lovely reception and room service staff are very approachable...

I visit Emerald frequently for work. I always find the Maraboon to be a comfortable hotel. It is walking distance to most places in the evenings, with various options for dining out or in. The staff are friendly and the rooms and bathrooms are always clean with well stocked bathroom amenities and a mini bar that would keep most people...

The reception was welcoming, the rooms were quiet and comfortable, and looks like they have been refurbished as the outside does not match the inside. The bed was comfy, the AC worked well and quiet, The bathroom is very clean with all the shampoo's etc. My only minor comment is the rooms don't really allow for self catering. The minibar...

I've been staying here on business and personal trips for a number of years, and can say the quality has never been a let-down. This time around they were accommodating of my very late arrival, and it was a relief after driving all day to find such comfort. The room I was in was modern and had proper desk facilities...

We arrived as a large group and the manager was so accommodating. Everything was well organized, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and the food was a delectable several course meal. The manager/owner even assisted in our organizing our tours of the area. It was a fantastic stay.

Great place to stay. Rooms are spacious and clean. Bed was comfortable. Lots of products in the bathroom and great coffee. We are in the restaurant and dinner was excellent. Popped into the tavern for a look and the locals were friendly too. Superb value all round.
