Great value
Like motels used to be - with daily room servicing, free wifi, big comfortable bed, Foxtel and brick walls, so quiet. Rooms are spacious with tea and coffee making facilities, a microwave, sink, fridge, (but no cutlery or crockery other than tea/coffee making stuff but I'm sure Rob would have provided something if we needed it), desk and table and chairs. The bathroom in our room was original (some are updated) but it was very clean, functional and the water hot and strong. There's a front balcony onto the garden with views to the mountains and undercover parking at the back next to the room entrance. The owner Rob was really nice and helpful with suggestions of places to visit. His brother does fantastic woodwork and sells it in reception. Looks ordinary but better service and extras than much pricier places. We'd stay there again.

Great family-owned accomodation!
Enjoyed ourselves at Atherton Motel. It's a small family-owned place and the family manages the property pretty much by themselves. Hence, they have the responsibility of putting things right. And they did it! If you drive, the location is pretty accessible and there's even an Asian restaurant beside it. All in all, it's a great place for travellers looking for an affordable yet highly respectable stay! Well recommended. We stayed for 2 nights

Just Ok
.....very soft bed, uncomfortable. .....relatively good value for money ..... But not really memorable. Is what it is.... A cheap motel accommodation for the night.

It is a long time since I stayed anywhere that was so clean. The room was a step back in time but had everything I needed including a very comfortable bed and facilities for a cuppa and a good hot shower. Thoroughly recommend.

Not sure what you want here
Only one chair in unit and no normal table.. Table with two chairs outside not really convenient for having breakfast together. most inconvenient for family. Only 4 servings of sugar and no crockery or cutlery. Had to ask for these. Staff were very helpful.

a bit dated but still comfortable
price and location
this is a classic motel where everything is there but it's getting a little long in the tooth. the main issues were the lack of soap and the poor liquid soap dispensers. we had a very comfortable night and overall had no major issues.

the included breakfast was amazing
atherton was not what we thought it was , very quiet place , not much to do , the owner went out of her way to ensure that we was happy with our stay , even down to cooking our breakfast seperatly as we was veggies .
