Kookaburra inn is a great place to stay. It's clean, quiet, comfortable, 5 min walk to the city, stores, and shops. I've spent there 10 days and and I really enjoyed my stay. Chris and Wendy, the managers, are very social and helpful. I would strongly raccomend this place.

This place is well located. Walk distance to the city centre and close to a supermarket. The room was comfortable and clean. We had a sink in the room that makes things easier when you shared the bathroom and it is very handy. The shared bathroom was clean and big. No shower get or anything like it. They have two... More

This accommodation is very well located to the city and valley at a great price. The room and premises had all I needed for my weekend stay. The owners were lovely and very helpful. I will plan to stay here again in the future

I arrived in the afternoon. As i was on my own i'd booked a single but was upgraded to a double for free - a nice surprise. It was a shared toilet and shower area and apart from a bit of sand it was very clean. There's a cooking area (which i didn't use) which again looked clean. There was... More

The location of this hotel is good as it's close to a woolmarts and within walking distance of the riverfront. The room was basic but clean and the bathrooms were spotless. The owners were very nice. It was excellent value for money I would definitely stay here again

We loved our stay in Kookaburra inn, it was so cosy and had a great atmosphere about it. The beds and pillows were incredibly comfy, the kitchen had all you need and the shower looked nearly new. The rooms were quite hot and the fan not overly helpful and there was a fair bit of corridor noise but you can't... More

Look, I booked 3 nights, but had to cancel 3rd night due to personal reasons. The owner Wendy (very helpful and courteous) refunded my last night. Enough said. Plus, its cheap as chips in the first place. It's what it says on the tin, not the Hilton, but safe, secure, quiet and pretty comfy and clean beds. Was expecting a... More

Service was great and facilities were fantastic. It's a quick walk to city centre and the hosts are very accommodating. The shower actually works nicely (no pressure change or water change like other places) and there's a nice living room with a TV and tons of movies. I highly recommend staying here, will not regret for sure!

I visited this place once before 6 years ago and the quality is still very good. Clean rooms, bathrooms, kitchen, TV room. Fridge, sink and fan in room, air-con in some of the rooms. Free wifi in rooms. Friendly staff. Good quiet residential neighbourhood, close to the city centre. The only complaint is that the bed in room 12 was... More
