We stayed here for one night on our way to Bingara. The rooms are really big with a couch, table and double bed. And also quite a large bathroom. There was a strange bleach or chlorine type smell coming from the bathroom that was quite overpowering but by opening the bathroom window and closing the bathroom door it was soon... More

We selected this motel after poring over the options on Trip Advisor, and so glad we did. Our room was spacious, very well laid out and of course, clean. After staying in smaller rooms for a few nights, it was such a pleasure to be able to find a place for everything. The 'Outback Shack' in the RSL across the... More

Good spot. Nice clean room. Pleasant decor. Clean & new. RSL across the road = lovely dinner, and no more driving for today! After a long drive, what a lovely oasis to stay at. Winner all round. 😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄. I'm too tired to write anything else! 🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

The room we stayed in was a newly built one at the back, so it was very fresh and clean. The quietest air con and a laaarge shower. The proprietors were helpful and friendly. A thoroughly comfortable stay. Being able to drive straight in, shower in comfort and walk across the road to a top class meal at the RSL... More

After a long haul up the highway from Newcastle I always look forward to arriving at the Southern Cross. I stay here regularly for business. Friendly staff and conveniently located with the RSL across the road for dinner. It ticks all the boxes for me.

Clean tidy. Comfortable bed. Quite rooms. Close proximity to RSL restaurant which did not disappoint. Would not hesitate staying here. Friendly welcome. Booking handled efficiently and easy check in. I booked on the day and scored a disabled room and I enjoyed the super large bedroom. I was pretty stoked with whole place.

The motel is well appointed and well off the highway so it's nice and quiet at night time. The pool and bbq area are fantastic. The rsl club is right across the road and it's only a very short drive to the Main Street area and supermarkets. The only small complaint I have is the shower was fairly scummy looking... More

A lovely, comfortable, spotlessly clean motel in Narrabri which is away from the constant noise of the trucks which travel the Newell Highway all hours of the day and night. Lovely welcome from Roxanne - owner - and made to feel at home. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable with a huge bathroom and a great shower ( best water... More

This motel is a very good place to stay. The rooms are quite large and the queen size bed is comfortable. The room has a sofa and a small dining table. Bathroom is good with a excellent shower. The rooms don't feel like a typical country motels room!! The motel is opposite the RSL and close to a very good... More
