Stayed in a room that backed onto a milking shed by the sound of it. Awoke to crates or something getting dragged around at 4:30am. Got up to have a shower and very little to no hot water, surely there's other options available when cost cutting. Had room service for dinner and average. All the staff were friendly except the...

Sorry to read you review. Yes it would be disappointing to be awoken so early. The store next door does start early on their load day which is at 5:00am. We have asked the to keep their noise level down but obviously need reminding. Our hot water is gas so the temperature controlled by the user and yes we do...

My husband and I stayed here for 4 weeks. The hotel is in a great location, walking distance to the shopping centre. The hotel is older but has been reasonably well maintained. The bedding could do with a refresh, one of our blankets had holes in it. Wifi is terrible and you have to pay for it. It was dropping...

I was in town overnight on business and I was booked into the Gateway- nice hotel with efficient service- rooms are large and well air conditioned which is important out here . There are a lot of places to stay from the boom times .

It is a great motel in Emerald at very convenient location, next to IGA, opposite of the woolies, KFC, Mc Donald's etc. Central but very quiet rooms and the most important very clean! The management and the staff are very helpful and friendly.

We were in town for a local event and chose this motel for its location and price. I had stayed here many years ago and was expecting it to be a little run down but was pleasantly surprised at how well this motel had aged. Clean, comfortable and tidily appointed. Recommended if you're passing through town.

As I say with all of my reports , I really enjoy to say something nice about a place and if I am going to be critical I agonize over how I am going to put my report I think what I dislike about this motel is the darkness of the rooms ,most of the rooms I have stayed in...

We have a ground floor self-contained ensuite studio apartment across the road from the main complex, with covered car parking at the door. There was a king bed, kitchenette with a full-sized fridge and a convection oven and microwave. There are shops including a big Woolworths within a 5-minute short walk. The motel also had a restaurant, which we did...

Rooms are quite ok except for the shower which has the most ineffective shower head ever conceived by man. Lights don't get turned off outside your room until very late but it is a super noisy place. Right on the highway and the place next door wheels trolleys around beginning at 4 in the morning. I'm on no sleep. Never...
