Excellent accommodation, friendly staff and meals were excellent. Will stay there again when next in Innisfail. Close to town and easy access to Highway. Couldn't hear any road noise even though it was on the main road.

I stayed here one night during a business trip to the region. My first impression was that it was just a regular motel. However, the staff were so friendly and helpful. The motel has its own little restaurant and bar and I had a drink at the bar after I checked in. Had a lovely chat with the staff and...

I stayed at the Barrier Reef motel in early February. I was hot and humid outside. Inside the A/C was working fantastically. The room was good, clean and functional. I had a work desk to plug the laptop into. There was free wifi, I didn't use it, so don't know what the speeds were like. My colleague and I went...

I stay in a lot of motels around Australia. Standout characteristics here include: - Cleanliness of rooms - Complementary french press style coffee in room (at time of writing) - Good restaurant, albeit a little pricey. Town doesn't offer much quality dining, so win here. - Great staff. Friendly and going out of way to help. - Good location, 10min...

I travel extensively and the staff and management at the Barrier Reef always make me feel welcome and at home. They go above to meet my needs and nothing is a problem. I choose to eat in at all times as the quality of the meals is excellent (Reef and more Reef is to die for). Value for money is...

We chose to stay overnight at this Motel on a Far North Queensland road trip. Our room was located at the rear of the motel away from any traffic noise. The room we had has been modernised somewhat but is an odd shape - not the standard rectangle proportions. However, it was clean, tidy and comfortable. We did have a...

Thank you for your comments 'pandd1946'. We are pleased that our reception staff were able to help with your problem. Ants can become a nuisance especially when the rains are on their way.

I have stayed here may times over the past 15 years albeit under different management. As there are no competing options in Innisfail, this is the only acceptable accommodation available and this is reflected in the prices. It is located on the highway and is easy to find and access. Rooms are adequate although aged. Bathroom was very clean which...

Thank you for your review Mildew1949. We apologise if any of our staff seemed 'snooty', it is certainly out of character for any of our staff. Our internet is free for guests via a ticket system from Reception (details of access to this is included in the room compendium). This system that has been used very successfully by the Barrier...

The Barrier Reef Motel is clean and comfortable. Rooms may seem a little basic by modern standards but they are fine for a night or two. The on site restaurant/bar provides good food. Innisfail doesn't provide a lot of accommodation options but the Barrier Reef Motel is the best of them.

Reviewed 25 July 2016

Good location for travellers as it leads easily out of town. Comfortable rooms but the free internet and cable TV was no where to be found but this could be because the new management had recently taken over and was perhaps sorting this at the time of our stay. Plenty of off street parking. Restaurant was closed during our stay...

Thank you for your review Peter. Sorry about the confusion with the pay TV. The Austar channels are installed on all of our Televisions. They appear as channels 1 - 9. To change between free to air and Austar the TV/DTV button needs to be pressed. The room compendium includes instructions on each particular brand of TV how to change...
