We stopped here for one night recently. The price is fair for what you get. The bed was very comfortable which is the main thing, and the showers were hot. To be honest, as others have said the rooms could benefit from some fresh paint and more thorough cleaning.

An older motel in need of some TLC. Too far to walk into town. Friendly manager, comfortable bed, hot showers but that's where it ends. Driveway was suicidal on our motorcycles and we were told we could put them undercover but that was not possible. The laundry was $12 a load ( other places were either free or $5 max)... More

Hi SMW, Thank you for staying with us. You are correct, as we did advise that this Motel was built in 1965 by Sir Reg Ansett and like many motels in Australia, it is of the same vintage. Though the motel has undergone many soft refurbishments. It is undergoing hard refurbishment now. We have three driveways, 2 main one have... More

Hotel location is close to several fast food outlets so I arrived after I had already eaten and missed out on sampling the in-house restaurant. Chandra the Manager/Owner was exceptionally helpful and had a great sense of humour. Free Wi-Fi, internet enabled TV, many TV channels to choose from and a clean comfortable bed ... what else do you need?

This is an older hotel and quite dated on the outside. Even though the rooms could use a paint and the bathroom is small the actual room is huge as is the king size bed!

Quite correct this motel was built in 1965 and the outside only renovated once, with a few additions. We have started a full refurb. Some before and after demolition pictures show that the interior was not renovated since built. The refurbed rooms will be different. Thank you for your kind comments and we look forward to seeing you again. More

It would appear that American Express has been very economic with truth with you. Mastercard and Visa card charge from 1% on Standard card to 2.8% on premium cards. Amex charges its merchants anything from 5% to 3.5%. They now charge this motel 3.5%. Most small business refuse to accept Amex because of the unreasonable fees. Customers on the other... More

I had never stayed here on previous trips to Cooma but that will now change. I received a warm welcome on arrival and meals were excellent. The bed was the most comfortable I have slept in for years and the room had everything you need.
