This hotel is located about 20 minutes east of Lismore. Staff are pleasant and welcoming. The room I had was spacious and clean. The bathroom is huge. Bed was nice and comfy with all the mod cons you get these days. Dinner at the pub across the road was excellent and priced well. I had chicken schnitzel was yummo! Very... More

We stayed a Saturday night recently whilst we attended a friends 50th closeby. The inclusions in the room was better than was expected for a country region. The bathroom was exceptionally large, king bed and fully stocked mini bar. A very nice hotel not to be under rated.

My neice and I stayed 1 night on our way to Brisbane. Lovely room, nicely appointed and a good sized bathroom with quality fittings. Very clean. The local tavern nearby was a bit noisy when we arrived (Sunday night before Christmas) but it didn't go too late and didn't keep us awake. Room was spotless and spacious with its queen... More

We stayed at this motel for 2 nights when we had travel to the area unexpectedly. This motel is very well appointed and has first class fittings & excellent, spotless rooms. The Wollongbar shops are just through a walk way and the rooms have utensils and crockery to have a take away in your room. The local pub next door... More

Spent 2 nights here while visiting a friend's family before heading down the coast to Sydney. Exceptionally clean and comfortable, excellent price point and the grounds were absolutely lovely. The owners were so pleasant and professional and I enjoyed talking with them (their dog, Harley, was adorable); it was obvious they take great pride in their property. This would be... More

A very pleasant room that was impeccably clean and well furnished with modern fit-out. The hotel next door takes 1 minute to stroll to and they provide very nice meals and an atmosphere that is welcoming to families and business travellers alike. The reception process was pleasant, prepared in advance and very well organised. No significant road noise was present... More

As we decided to head to Byron Bay for Easter weekend (a week before, not even knowing there was the blues festival), we were blessed finding this motel which is very conveniently located. The owners are really friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and clean and had all the amenities to make our stay perfect. Unfortunately the bed was... More

This hotel is well located for a one night stop over. We paid $145 for the night during peak season which I thought was a bit steep but it provided what we needed, a room and bed. Check in was friendly and efficient and the service was friendly. Our room was large enough for the two of us for the... More

We have friends living in Wollongbar and decided to stay here one night so we could catch up. The motel and it's grounds were most attractive and impressive. Not busy this night as we were the only room in use! Our room was a family room with 1Q and 2S beds. The room was quite spacious and had a small... More
