We stayed at Hotel Theodore over Easter weekend. Great location. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The best part for us is that we were travelling with our dog, and the hotel was very accommodating. We stayed in one of the cabins on the river front. I would pay the extra amount to stay in the cabins - well...

Roomy and clean accommodation with terrific meals at reasonable prices. One of Australia's few community owned venues. On the banks of the Dawson river, a sleepy little town with a great coffee shop too. Great place to unwind and fish if you must!

We stayed in a two bedroom cabin on the river which was very comfortable and clean. Enjoyed sitting outside on the deck with a glass of wine or a cup of tea overlooking the gardens and the river. We had dinner at Hotel Theodore in the evening and the food was excellent. Just one recommendation: to source beef locally. So...

After travelling all day we just needed a nice bed to sleep in, cold beer and a feed. Can highly recommend turning into Theodore to stay at the pub - it has three styles of accommodation (including cabins), hotel and motel style - a bistro which also does takeaway, sports bar and branded bottle mart bottle shop - looks like...

We had been driving for hours from the Sunshine Coast and had become very lost when we stumbled across this wonderful motel. We stopped in to watch the footy and decided that stay the night. The people were amazing and extremely accommodating, 10/10!

I see others have had favourable experiences of Hotel Theodore. I arrived a little after 6:00 on a Saturday, so had to go to the bottle shop to find out if there was a room available. A very helpful receptionist suggested a hotel room out the back, which has everything I need. Hotel Theodore is something of a find! Bravo!

My team and I stayed in three cabins at Hotel Theodore, the staff could not have been more welcoming. There was lots of off street parking for our team trailers and cars.
