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.

En route to see Undara Lava Tubes we stopped at Ravenshoe and checked into the Kool Moon Motel. Trevor and Ilene who run the motel were so helpful and caring. They made our stay so lovely we asked if we could stay another night. Nothing was too much trouble. Everything was provided even a free BBQ. Lovely stay. Thank you Trevor and Ilene.

I was nervous about this booking. The picture was of a rather old motel. We needn’t have worried.
It is off the highway, squeaky clean, well maintained, with true old fashioned hospitality from Elaine & Trevor. “Would you like bowls or plates for your stew? Here is your cutlery. (Pepper & salt shakers added here) Would you like more bowls for breakfast? Don’t washup. We’ll do it. Would you like some milk?” (In a JUG!!!!)The units are spacious, & themed for the stars. The doors are lovely wood, with a different possum carving on each door. Then there are the Owl stained glass panels (by Elaine) in the skylight Above each door. And magazines and books in the units and on the tables on the wide shaded area outside the units. ( They face West) And a Bible in
our unit.
Trevor & Elaine were also a fount of local information. Did you know that Ravenshoe is the possom capital of Australia, with 12-13 species?
We got better service here than at the Cape Tribulation guest house, which was twice the price.
The only small issue for me was that the odd truck started rumbling by at around 5am, so not much beauty sleep if you have sleep issues.
I would definitely recommend this gem, so close to the Atherton tablelands.

Our fist impression was how big the room was, it had a queen bed, single bed and a small table, but did not feel cramped at all. The motel and rooms are very comfortable,quiet, clean and tidy, and the appliances are well maintained. Our room also had a split system air conditioner and a ceiling fan. There is also undercover carpark at the front of the room. We would definately stay here again.

There are few accommodation options in Ravenshoe and this was selected as a stopping off place to go west. The owners were extremely friendly and pleasant and accommodating ( amjor positive). The hotel is old and dated but very clean. No hair dryer here and a 1970's atmosphere but if you need a place in Ravenshor it is recommended but don;t expect the Ritz.

The Kool Moon is a 1970s style motel with some refurbishments; decor could best be described as rustic country. It is clean and basic but comfortable. The standard out feature of the motel is the service provided by the hosts - very helpful and accommodating. All in all, pretty good value for money.

We spent 1 night here while road tripping and I can say that it is easily the cleanest and loveliest little motel we've ever stayed in. The owner is lovely and even brought us a jug of milk for our coffee and 2 bottles of water. While it's not modern or new, it is absolutely spotless and well maintained. Had we been going back through Ravenshoe again we'd have stayed there again. I highly recommend it!

Very comfortable beds.
Very friendly owners.
Very clean room.
Very relaxed location.
The room is a little dated but the level of comfort outweighs that.
I personally would like fly screens on the windows although there were no mosquitoes and very few bugs, I just have a phobia.
I would definitely stay here again without hesitation.
Look no further than Kool Moon and you will not have any regrets.
4 minuets walk to a lovely little town.

The motel has reasonable prices with local freindly hosts. It is quiet, clean, with good beds and pillows plus the quietest R/C air conditioner. It's an easy walk to town for choices of dining or a pub dinner. Good value in a convenient position.

I noticed the motel ratings were either excellent or very good. One might think a bit sus,
Could not be further from the truth. Could not add much more from the previous travelers. Just a great motel in a lovely place, Ravenshoe. We have never met better
hosts and their motel was spot on. There are two hotels within walking distance, both
with great food. Would definitely stay again.

Excellent hosts, nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are spacious and clean as a whistle. Close to town and prices are better than most. Recommend the Kool Moon to travellers of all types. Comfy and relaxing.

Alas they have wi-fi but no web site. We just drove in. They had space, so we stayed. As simple as that.
