A very pleasant first visit to this motel (2nd visit to Broken Hill). Simple but very comfortable and quiet room. Close to town for shops, Demo Club, restaurants etc. Friendly and helpful staff. Will stay here again if I find myself back in Broken Hill. Can't say more than that

As I was travelling with another female friend the fact Daydream Cottage had 2 Queen bedrooms was a major factor in booking this room. What a surprise to find it is actually a 2 bedroom house. Full size lounge, large kitchen, utilities room and of course the 2 separate b/rooms. All clean and tidy, only thing I could fault was... More

They are both fully self-contained with a separate lounge, dining room and kitchen. Ideal for the tourist having an extended stay or the corporate client looking for extra space to do some work.

We only spent 2 nights and 1 day in Broken Hill but enjoyed the hospitality very much. John was very helpful and accepted our recommendation with good grace that the pillows were in need of replacement. He has already advised us that this has been attended too. Although the motel is a little dated it is very clean and comfortable... More

We found the owner John very helpful and the room was clean and good value. I am unable to give a full rating as we did not see the pool or use the restaurant. We would definitely stop there again if passing through and have recommended it to friends.

Spent 4 nights at Daydream hotel as a travel auction. Very pleased to have towels changed daily and extra tea bags. The bed was very comfortable. However the room needs a make over. Especially the flooring -above and below. Showing it's age.

This is a cute 2-bedroom fully equipped cottage next to the Motel, it is clean, tidy & looks as if Gran just moved out + a few mod cons. Heaps more space than a motel room & ideal for a family or two couples. Interesting back yard a 1950's timewarp. WiFi was difficult despite John's best efforts. We would happily... More

Thank you for reviewing the Daydream Motel. The Daydream Cottage is ideal for an extended stay as it allows you to fully cater for yourself and provides the extra space to make it feel like home.

The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The bonus was that although on the main road it was very quiet. It is also within walking distance to restaurants.
