The view from room 4 was great out over the valley. We sat out on the balcony and had dinner.

Internet speed through the motel wifi was awesome. Fasted speed I have had since visiting Denpasar Airport.

Room was neat, clean and tidy. All electricals worked well.

Only disappointment was that the pagoda restaurant next door was closed, we were looking forward to a Chinese restaurant meal. Ended up going down into town and getting takeaway Chinese and bringing it back to the room with a bottle of wine.

All in all a good experience, we just have to remember that the Pagoda is closed on Monday & Tuesday

Stayed: March 2017, travelled on business

Had the luxury room option. Cost $180 for the night. Way too expensive for what we got. Monsoon shower was great but shower screen and drainage woeful so the whole bathroom got wet. El cheapo bedding had no luxury experience from it. Had microwave toaster and kettle but no plates or cutlery. Promised free foxtel but cable from tv was missing so only had free to air tv. Walls paper thin so could hear next door. Staff were friendly and helpful.

The owners at the Atherton Motel were very friendly and accommodating. Frankly, they are the highlight. The walls between rooms are very thin and noises (TV) can be heard. The bathroom floor was sticky. The bathroom basin hot water did not work - but the shower hot water did. There is only a soap dispenser that provides foam. There is no shampoo. I think the foam is also for shampoo. The wifi is slow. However, the bed was comfortable and the TV had many channels. Despite the lovely owners and the budget price, I just cannot recommend the Atherton Motel.

Room Tip: Preferably, a room with neither room either side of you occupied

Thank you for taking the time to review The Atherton Motel.
I can only apologize our Luxury Rooms were fully booked out during your stay with us.
Clean, Quite and comfortable is what most reviews say about the Atherton Motel and we can only hope guest's will let us know any concerns so we can address them instantly or as this is the case write a review .
I am disappointed to read that we did not meet your expectations and i have shared your comments with housekeeping. Being of double brick cyclone proof construction makes room noise a rare issue for us but we will review your suite to see if this could be improved. I would very much welcome the opportunity to discuss with you in more detail and as such, please feel free to contact me direct - admin@athertonmotel.com

My partner and I decided to visit friends on the Tablelands and we thought we'd have a night to ourselves. Of course we had to pick a weekend where most everywhere was booked out. And we are glad they were? I rang on a Friday and asked if they had any vacancies. Yes they did both normal rooms and deluxe room. I opted for the deluxe and wow am glad we did. Was abit worried when we pulled up outside our door as I must say the paint work needs a little TLC. But opened the door into our own virtual luxury (on a budget) retreat. The bathroom was huge and beautifully appointed. Big comfy queen size bed and a 42" 3D flat screen TV on the wall that impressed the other half big time. The room also had a round dining table with 4 chairs along with two comfy lounge chairs to sit in and still the room seemed big. The room was also spotlessly clean, which is a HUGE plus. The patio area out front of or room was a wonderful place to sit and have a cold beer watching the world go by and day turning into night. Great coffee and tea making facilities and a microwave. All this is lovely grounds that when night fell were lit up with colourful garden lights. Right next-door is the Pagoda Chinese restaurant - eat in or take away. All I'll say is yummo. To end a wonderful stay we had room service breakfast before we left and it was delivered on time, hot and delicious. As locals we will be staying there again

Thanks so much for your kind review.
After reading that i think i will check in there myself.
A lot of time and effort went into the construction of our Luxury rooms and comments or reviews like this make the effort so much more rewarding.

Thank you again, and we look forward to being able to look after you in the future.
