Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 March 2012

As residents of Cairns we regularly venture to the Tablelands to stay overnight and visit one of the weekend markets held up there. We have stayed in a whole range of accommodations and lately, keep on gravitating back to the Atherton Motel. The motel is reasonably priced, spacious, immaculately clean and stands imposingly on a huge block of land with great views over well maintained grounds and rolling hills in the distance. While lacking the adornments of more up-market accommodations, the motel has a good, solid, country feel and the owners are extremely hospitable and helpful. The motel has the added advantage of being neighbour to a great Chinese Restaurant where we regularly eat when we venture up that way.

Room Tip: All rooms enjoy the same outlook and appear to be of the same standard.

The Atherton Motel is an older motel, on a huge lush green block, with fantastic views. Being an older motel is deceptive, as the rooms are indeed quite modern & generous in size. The beds were very comfortable & each room had a fridge & microwave. The bathrooms are aged a little, but quite roomy. My stay was just after cyclone Yasi had devastated the area. Myself & 22 other guys had travelled up to assist in repairing the damaged powerlines. We lobbed into the hotel, looking for good rooms & tucker !! Boy did we find it !! Rob & his wife Caroline were fantastic. The food, by their chef (Terry) was the best food of any motel I had ever stayed in !! And just quietly, Rob knows how to knock out the perfect steak too !!!Should you chose to stay there, you will enjoy the most welcoming & friendly people, who will strive to enhance your Atherton stay to the best of their ability. Rob & Caroline can organise some great experiences. All you have to do is make the booking. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay, in fact we were a little dissapointed to leave.

Thought the soap dispenser was a good idea and cost effective. Sorry we weren't able to stay longer. Insect screen on sliding door would be good. After just coming from a Cairns Beach Accomodation 4+* where we felt ripped off, it was a pleasen surprise.

We were a sporting group staying at the Motel and we were really impressed by the friendly welcome we received. Rob and Caroline could not do enough for us and we were extremely grateful to them for all they did. The meals that they provided were beautiful and fresh - we really were totally impressed. They also arranged a discount at a local attraction for us to take the group to, as well as sourcing an icecream cake for one childs birthday - and much more.... Our stay was enjoyable and very comfortable - the beds were great!
