"Best place to stay in Emerald"

Rooms are very clean, staff are always willing to help and beds give a great night's sleep. As emerald can be very hot at times like now, the pool is a great addition to cool off with the family. Personal rating of 5 stars and would give more if i could. Great place to stay and 5 mins to airport or 8 mins to town.

"Top service"

Well guys and girls, my family tried the restaurant at the explorer's inn. The service was like being served at a Hilton or Hyatt restaurant. Extremely well mannered, and anytjing we asked for was taken take of. As all of you may know having a young child can make a evening meal, the worst night out or a experience to remember. The staff that looked after us made it a night to remember. The meals of two rib eye fillet steaks and a calamari meal for the child was mouth-watering as it was cooked to perfection. The young lady that mainly served us through the meal, did a 10/10 job. Well done to her. All in all top food, exceptional service and a place to remember. 8 mins from town towards the airport. Will say this, don't bother eating anywhere else if you want quality.

"Country oasis"

I'm a returning visitor, travelling through to Cairns. The rooms at the Explorers Inn are very spacious and comfortable. Our room was close to the swimming pool and restaurant. Although situated close to the highway there was very little noise evident. A very clean and welcoming motel with great hosts and service.

"Emerald stay"

I stayed here overnight with 3 teenagers. I found our room to be quite big and the beds very comfortable. Room was very clean and staff were very friendly. Even though the motel was on the opposite side of town from where I was coming from, it was close to where I had to go and there is a shopping center and tavern close by. I would definitely recommend staying here to friends.

"Excellent Service and Food"

We have visited the Explorers for dinner a number of times now and never had any reason to complain about meals or the service on any occasion, both have been exceptional. The management and staff have definitely got it right and know how to run a successful restaurant with good food. Using the courtesy bus makes it easy and is never a problem for them. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

"Star Hotel Restaurant"

We ate a delicious large tasty rump with pork ribs that fall off the bone, at this newly revamped hotel. Modern decor, friendly staff and good food. What more could you want after a long day on the road.

"Great place to stay"

I stayed at the Explorers Inn just before the weather from a cyclone was due to hit!
It was a great place to stay and I enjoyed the food there too.
What was a standout was how helpful and flexible all the staff were. Due to the with I didn't know whether I would be able to fly out. The staff happily let me leave my stuff in my room as I tried to work out my travel arrangements. They were happy and really flexible about me staying on or checking out as planned.
Could not recommend them enough!

"Good Work Stop"

Motel has plenty of room, can set up and do work as well as relax. food is great and restaurant staff seem cheery and good for a chat. A little out of town so no hustle and bustle with very comfortable beds.

"Great accomodation"

We just stayed overnight after long driving day. Staff are all very helpful and friendly. We were towing large van behind car and needed parking spot. They worked out quickly and let us park at their car park.
Food at restaurants are exceptional!
Highly recommend this place
