Booked this motel on wotif.com only to find out that there were no clean rooms on arrival. The lady at reception had to clean our room herself while we dined at their ridiculously overpriced restaurant. Staff were friendly, rooms were old and outdated and wifi didn't work. Ok if u just want a bed for the night close to the... More

Spent 1 night as stop over on way to Gold Coast. Minimal but friendly contact with staff on both check in & check out. Room was dingy, curtains did not meet properly when closed, bed was like a slab of concrete, pillows were hard & lumpy. Air con was pathetic: old fashioned wall mounted type with very poor output.

Over the years, I've driven by this motel many times en-route between Sydney and the Gold Coast, but this was the first time that I ever stopped to stay here. Overall, the stay was decent and comfortable. This is an older motel, but it is in excellent condition. Rooms are comfortable but typical of older, Australian roadside motels - but... More

We were really impressed with the family suite we stayed in, with 3 adults and 2 young children all sleeping comfortably. The rooms were very clean and staff friendly. The new Bavarian restaurant on site served big, well priced meals and we found it very handy after a day of driving. Will definitely stay at The Big Windmill again next... More

I stayed with my husband and two young kids on the 19th August. We booked a family room. The staff were great. All were friendly, nothing a bother. The room was very clean, great tv positioned well. Our bed was extremely comfortable. Everything was modern in the room and in working order. The building itself is not as young as... More

Ideal place to stay overnight if traveling up North or down South. Stayed for one night with the group of people. Service was great and we even enjoyed the Big Windmill restaurant, a bit overpriced however worth the price for the convenience. Rooms are old, despite that everything looks clean and neat.

We were impressed with room we were given, it had been renovated and was well appointed. The bathroom was excellent. The people on the front desk were very friendly and helped us when the could. We requested a quiet room and unfortunately got a very noisy one. The truck noise through the night was never ending, making sleep very difficult.... More
