The room was small but clean. We had a two night stay. Room service charge of $20 applies if you want bed made, bin emptied etc., also the normal coffee, tea top up is extra. Never had this experience before. Only found out after we checked in. Would we stay here again, what if the toilet paper runs out! How... More

Situated towards the western part of town. Arrived on spec one Sunday afternoon and asked about a couple of double rooms for the night. The gentleman immediately showed me a couple of rooms that were clean and spacious. I had already made my mind up but asked, cheekily, if there was any money off for booking two rooms and after...

I had a double bed to myself at this place and for a place to just crash overnight, it was very good, clean and comfortable. It's not somewhere I would stay for a week, unless you are on a budget. The small bathroom was off the bedroom that had a separate wash basin in the bedroom. In the living area... More

The motel is really cheap and clean and in a central location so that was great. But watch out for the really tacky extras. Never in all my adventures around Aus and the world have I been charged to use the second bed in the room. I deliberately booked a Queen Family room, so as to use the second bed,... More

As great men have said 'Context is everything '. We are disappointed that you had this reaction to a really cheap good value offer. The booking conditions are quite clear and are reflected on your booking confirmation which states no extra bed in addition to a queen bed . We do provide Twin rooms and scented liquid soap in modern... More

We've been driving nearly 9 hours and was with great joy to arrive at the Bamboo motel. Room was spacious. Bed was very comfortable and I struggled getting our of it without falling asleep. Only one suggestion though I do prefer having soap - not a big fan of this soap dispenser thingy - I would've used less than the... More

I dont normally stay here as I try and stay were I can earn Quantas points. However, I was only here overnight on sales calls to the local area and the local that you earn points from was fully booked. It was smack in the middle of town, water directly over the road and convenient to every where I was... More

We stayed here for two nights and enjoyed a comfortable stay. Great location, clean and cosy room. Our host was welcoming and helpful. Everything worked in our room. I have no hesitation in recommending Bamboo Motor Inn :)
