Stayed 1 night on a trip of western QLD. Wide range of well presented accommodation. Lovely grounds and cabins over looking the Dawson River. Restaurant offers a sophisticated menu for an rural pub at reasonable prices. Customer service some of the best we experienced on the trip. Thanks Trish & staff.
I have family in the area so am a semi-regular visitor to Theodore and always enjoy staying in the riverside cabins at Hotel Theodore. The cabins are a good size, the bedding is comfortable, the kitchen is well provisioned and the deck is a wonderful spot to sit overlooking the river. There are a few things that could be done to spruce the place up and add to the experience. Inside, a lounge would be more comfortable than the wicker chairs, space to put toiletries in the bathroom would be useful, as would a larger fridge. Outside on the deck - and this is where I imagine people will spend most time - it would be good to see a new outdoor setting, perhaps a hammock or something similar. Benches in the garden near the river and a BBQ area for guests I'm sure would get plenty of use.…
We stayed in a cabin which is situated beside the Dawson River. It is a nice spot with well maintained gardens. Cabin was disappointing for the $160 price for 2 per night. Beds and linen are quite good but seating in living area is uncomfortable. Could do with a couch. Floor coverings need replacing and it needs some places to put things, eg. In bathroom nowhere to put toiletries. Water pressure is quite poor but that may be due to rural location. Cabin could do with complete redecoration to be worthy of its price tag.
On my first trip down the Leichhardt Highway, I couldn't resist this classic 1940s hotel in a quaint, palm tree lined street next to the river. Our motel room was recently built or renovated, roomy, with comfortable bedding and a good bathroom. Family cabins looked spacious, with verandahs overlooking the river. Everything is well-organised and well-maintained. Ate dinner on the terrace out the front. No wifi, because the signal is not strong enough in this small town, which must be inconvenient for them, but we used our phones to connect to the internet.
We stayed in a 2br cabin overlooking the river and had a great night. The beds were comfortable and we ate in the hotel where the food was really good; spaghetti bol, sticky date pudding and scotch made for a relaxing night. We sat out on the verandah and watched the river. The rain was falling, which was glorious and while we enjoyed that we noticed a small echidna puddling around by the river bank! The unit was well set up with everything that you'd need for cooking and good toiletries in the bathroom too. Blinds were good quality for blocking out sun if it was required. An excellent spot that I'd thoroughly recommend; we'll be back! Staff were really helpful too.
