My mother and I had a one night stopover here. The rooms we had, whilst not huge, were all we needed for a good nights sleep. The beds were comfortable, rooms were beautifully clean, great amenities. Our rooms didn't have a toaster but it was no trouble for them to bring one to the room for us. I believe there...

So lovely to check in to the Meteor after a long day driving through outback Queensland. The staff was very friendly and helpful, providing a toaster and also a wifi hot-spot when requested. Our double room was well maintained, spotlessly clean and the bed comfy. The room was not large but was quite adequate for overnight. The restaurant was pleasant...

Our room was compact with little space to put suitcases but it was clean and we had a good night's sleep. It was in a quiet location so no traffic noise. As part of a tour group, we ate in the dining room. Our meals were lovely and the service good. Matt and his team were very keen to attend...

This is a standard, large, motel in the middle of Emerald. It is however off the main highway so it has the advantage of being comparatively quiet. The room I had was large with a queen bed and two singles. The usual tea and coffee making facilities were there as well as a bar fridge and microwave. The bathroom was...

Not bad, and not on. Nice but. Friendly reception staff, but not in the game. Do you have a BBQ? Yes but the owners don't like the guests using it!! Wash down point? Nope. . Hose? Nope. Get real guys. A little tired, and a little lazy.

Booked in overnight while on a road trip. Was reasonably comfortable, but the place needs a bit of sprucing up. Beds were not the best, thin bedding on them as well. Family room had no microwave. Double and 2 single beds was the bedding, and the room was rather squishy. Parking was good, location was good, supermarkets, pub and takeaway...

The Meteor was our second choice in Emerald (after the A&A) and the manager was really friendly when we checked in, our twin room was a bit squishy but clean and the location (just off the main road) was quiet and within walking distance of the Irish Village (a great pub for drinks and dinner). The downsides were that we...

Passing through Emerald for one night we wanted somewhere cheap to stay and we got that with Meteor. The room was large enough and the bed comfortable, but the toilet was facing a wall, so those with longer legs would scrape their knees on the wall. Also the shower didn't warm up enough and half the shower head was blocked...
