Spent a night on business with my wife as we did around 3 years ago. The Cattleman's remains very good value for money - nice clean comfortable room, cold beer and the best steaks around. Highly recommend for comfort, staff friendliness and of course- the steaks.

I had booked a night at the Cattleman as we have stayed here before on business. This time I was towing a trailer and the lady on reception advised me they had a number of break ins over the school holidays and would prefer me to go to another of their hotels. I ordered some food to takeaway which was...

We stayed for one night and the room was comfortable and clean. Large bedroom and the option of having a king size bed was nice. The bathroom was also large. Good for a family or a couple. We would stay here again. We didn't get to eat at the restaurant, as we had other things to do that night, but...

As a local i dine at this Restaurant often. Yes the price is different from other places in town but you dont get the menu they have on offer from Steak, Seafood options, Thai Green Chicken Curry, Mummas Meat Balls and i could go on good balanced menu! Main meals range from $25.00 to $40.00. The table service you get...

A spacious room with an in-house restaurant and undercover parking right outside the room. Staff were great and when someone had parked poorly making it difficult with my CAM boot, they moved us over one space without hesitation.

Rooms and service good but do not be draw in by the offer of onsite restaurant. Check the in room menu against the restaurant and find same meals for 1/3rd of price. We were warned by a local that this is the most expensive eating place in Charters Towers and gives nothing extra to what you will get else where....

Recently stayed here for a school re-union. The location of the motel was great, its an easy walk into the town centre, and the group facilities were also good > we used the pergola extensively. The room and bathroom were clean, but a little dated. Overall, a comfortable motel.

Stayed 1 night with a friend I was helping on a business trip, it was last minute as the road into the town we were originally meant to stop into overnight was flooded and closed off...! Thank goodness the lovely bloke at Cattleman's rest was still at reception at 7:30pm! Room was dated but very clean/tidy and smelt nice too!...

While the room was very clean and tidy it was still never the less showing its age. The outlook into a dead hanging basket cemetery was a little off-puting! Lack of decent bright lighting was another distraction when you like to read or do other similar things at night. Our evening meals were late being delivered and then one meal...
