Lovely, clean and tidy place to stopover. Motel is tucked away nicely and the staff more than helpful. This has to be the best and cleanest motel I have stayed in for a long time. Fabulous price too. I will definitely be staying here again

It’s an older style property. Very very clean. Very homely. The staff were amazing. The bed was extremely comfortable. As well as the pillows. They must use fabric softener in the linen as it smelt amazing & was very soft. I will definitely stay here next time I’m in Innisfail.

Room was a disgrace. There were blood stains on bedding and didn’t stick around to see what else. Staff were friendly.

Lovely friendly staff. Great little place to stay. Bathroom maybe a bit small if any critique. Pool was also under maintenance when we were there - a shame - child would’ve loved a swim but always other great places to swim around Innisfail.

Hotel Staff were lovely, and welcoming. Close to shops, so the family and I could walk rather than drive. I would recommend this place. If I ever stay in Innisfail again I would book this hotel again.
