Guest Comments

Here are a few of the lovely things our guests at Boonah Motel have had to say about us over the last few months:

  1. Muaulu Penitila says:

    My wife and I spent one night there with our friend and his wife too. We were very impressed with the Hotel in this part of Queensland. The rooms were nicely kept clean, smell nice and well organised inside.

    We are definitely going back there again.
    Very kind and friendly gentlemen that looks after that place. The place, the service and people who run the place, makes the stay even more homey.

    We strongly recommend for others to check it out for yourselves to see.
    If it was a long weekend, we would have stayed there even longer. Good spot, close to shops. Vice nice little town to get away to.

    Second stay at the motel great service friendly hosts, first time I meet the hosts previously it was the hosts son he did not let the team down good bloke as well. The room was well equipped with every thing you would need, good bed and towels.
    And to top it off it is just a short walk to town no need to drive.

  56. Stayed for two nights. Room was clean and well-equipped. Helpful and friendly hosts. Excellent location straight across the road from cafes, pubs and shops but set back enogh from the main road to be quiet. Also its location at the noeth endof the scenic rim allows plenty of exploration. If you have a chance visit The Scenic Room Brewery at Mt Alford a short drive away- nice beer and food. And to top it of-affordable room rates.

    Location was excellent for what we wanted (visiting friends at Moogerah so an easy 20min drive) and a nice spot in general next the mini lake. Was sent a confirmation email from the the owners couple of days after booking made which was is a good start. Greeted by one the owners at check-in (along with their boisterous yapping dog), my details confirmed and given a room key … simple as that. The room was obviously recently tastefully renovated, beautifully modern and clean with simple touches like air freshener in the bathroom, a microwave in the fridge section and the main power point with USB charger outlet, clever. The bed was very comfortable with clean white sheets and towels. Would definitely stay at Boonah Motel again and recommend it to anyone needing accommodation in the area.
