I only spent one night in this fascinating historic motel after a friend's funeral but it was relaxing, peaceful and comfortable. It was a cold, wet day so it was wonderful to come back to a beautiful spa bath in a nicely modernised bathroom and a cosy bed. The décor is quaint and quirky, such a relief from slick modern...

Very much enjoyed our 2 nights in this motel. Very friendly and helpful people, clean and tidy. Short walk to the centre of town. All good, highly recommended and will spread the word. We tried to conserve your water and electricity, have lived in the bush as well and appreciate the scenario 😉👍

This heritage type motel is very old world, but has all the modern amenities. Despite the fact that the shower was a bit small when presented with a dilemma of having to stay another night the motel's quick witted ness dealt with the problem with ease. Friendly service and spa across the road. Walking distance into town what more could... More

We booked directly with them. When we arrived, we were well looked after by their friendly staff & then shown to our room. Our accommodation was clean, comfortable, spacious & practical. Lovely - we will be back. So close to shops, hotels & various other facilities.

Lovely ladies, and very hospitable. We were only in town for one night, and for the price, the room was comfortable and tidy, with good wifi connection! We didn't get to use all the amenities due to the length of our stay, but I'll be sure to stay again next time I'm in town. (Thank you for remembering us!)

Broken Hill is an anomaly in this remote part of New South Wales, which is otherwise full of dusty small settlements and vast outback landscapes. Broken Hill itself has just been named a Heritage City, and its opulent buildings reflect its past as a prosperous large mining community with the funds to erect monumental well-designed Victorian buildings along its main...

We stayed whilst driving between NSW and Adelaide, based mostly on price and location off the main truck routes. The rooms are small, old and dated but clean and have extras like a microwave and toaster. The manager was very friendly and helpful with local advice. We easily walked to the town centre for dinner. For 1 night the room... More

This is a charming, older motel with facilities like microwave, toaster, jug, etc all of which make it easy to look after yourself food-wise. Our room was on an angle, I kept wanting to align my bed to the wall but that would have inhibited movement through the room. The toilet/shower area is tiny, and it's impossible to keep the... More
