We booked a Queen Deluxe room and when I opened the door I was totally shocked! The size of the room was astonishing. You could open the door and almost touch the bed - which is hard against the opposite wall. There was no cupboard, just an open area to hang clothes (behind the door) and the table area is... More

Stayed for two nights. Budget room was right!! shabby. Badly in need of update. I did expect a slightly better room for the price paid. Room was not serviced- despite putting a sign on the door-'Please service my room". I returned to the motel later to find the sign had been turned around by someone unknown to read 'Do not... More

We stayed for 2 nights. Toilet leaked clean water all over the bathroom floor making it very slippery. Totally inefficient airconditioning unit that must be at least 40 years old. Bed wasn't remade for second night's stay. Cups were not washed for second night's stay. Television was the size of a small computer monitor. Even though the location was good... More

Spent a few days here but not by choice. Orange is particularly expensive for motels and the Mid City just happened to be that little bit cheaper than most. Its occupancy levels were very high both on weekends and mid week so they are obviously satisfying demand. The location is excellent. Bang smack in the middle of Orange City so... More

Hi Michael. Wifi is now available for guests free of charge! Unfortunately, it was not available in your room during your stay, however, if you did require Wi-Fi, we were able to offer it free, but only in the reception area. More

We unfortunately stayed on Bathurst Race Weekend. The neighbours, basically half the motel, were noisy and not asked to keep the noise down - calling out from the top floor balcony to friends downstairs etc. The room was small - like a European hotel room, small bathroom, thin walls, noisy showers, once the hot water came through. The motel has... More

Dear Anne Bromley. We are sorry you felt you did not have a pleasant stay with us on the weekend of the Bathurst Car Races and wanted to voice this through Tripadvisor and not directly with motel management. Yes the motel was full with race goers (as well as all the other accommodation providers in the town & region) and... More

We have stayed in this motel for many years for the Bathurst weekend. Every year this motel goes downhill further, we had to pay up front for three days accommodation, and our friends were charged more for the same room type. Built in 1956, no large amount of money spent since then. There were dubious stains in the carpet, paint... More

Dear Andrew Campbell. Its unfortunate that you felt the need to air any grievances you may feel you have via Tripadvisor and not directly with the motel. I have checked this years and your previous years stays with us during the Bathurst Car Race period and you have paid the same price every year with no increase. I have also... More

This motel was a surprise package. We were not too sure of what we may find at such a cheap overnight rate. Plenty of parking, a couple of blocks to the centre of Orange. The room although small was very clean and the beds very comfortable with lovely crisp white sheets. The shower is over the bath and the bathroom... More

This motel in the centre of town offers an extremely comfortable bed in a very small room. Bathroom was clean, TV very small. Usual tea-making facilities and a toaster. Quite ok for an overnight stay whilst travelling.
