Front reception is friendly, room is big and clean. I had a room near reception at the front, can hardly hear any traffic noise. Motel is vintage but nicely renovated. Ok for an overnight stay and yes would stay again if in the area.

We were travelling through from Sydney to Brisbane and this motel has exceeded our expectations. The family suite has two LARGE rooms and the beds were comfy. The facilities were very good and the bathroom was also large. Very clean and tidy facilities, if slightly retro. The lady at the front desk was friendly and quite helpful. Well done to... More

We stayed here for a 1 night stopover. The motel is not fancy but is very comfortable and spotlessly clean with all that you need. Easy to find, very friendly service and a great restaurant on site. The rooms are quite big and have a kitchenette with sink, bar fridge, kettle and toaster. Very pleasant stay and we would stay... More

Big Windmill is old. (I last stayed here in 1982). But it has not stood still and deteriorated. It trades on the quaintness of the "real" life-size European windmill at the front of the property which contains the Edelweiss Bavarian Restaurant. When I stayed here before it was a Dutch themed "Big Windmill Restaurant". At least someone in recent management... More

Stayed at the Big Windmill overnight to break up a 8-9hour driving trip and would definitely stay there again. The staff were very friendly, the rooms are very spacious and most importantly the beds are very comfortable. Would also highly recommend the Edelweiss restaurant that is attached to the hotel.

As a Sales Rep I have been staying at the Big Windmill for over 12 years now. Over the years it has gone through a few management and staff changes. One thing has always remained the same....a high level of service and presentation, and great friendly people always welcoming you. The rooms are large and roomy, well appointed, with nice... More
