The Bunkhouse might not be the flashest or latest - but it's location is very handy, the basic beds are comfortable, linen is decent, rooms are warm. Rooms aren't serviced but people are amazing - I doubt anything reasonable request for this price bracket would be too hard. Rooms are very old but clean. We live rurally and often need... More

We stayed here just recently for 3 nights in a self contained room, the experience was disgusting. The shower had black mould and the shower curtain was dirty. The cups were dirty, the lady said they would be cleaned but they were in the same place 3 days later. There was no washing up detergent. The extendable table ends were... More

Awesome cozy place! Made me feel like at home. A small flat with toilet and kitchen and all the winter Aussie atmosphere! I'll definitely recommend and probably going back. The rooms have all the kitchen appliances as dishes and microwave. The energy of the owner is such amazing and kind, Ellen is a great host. The prices are very affordable... More

Stayed here one night on the way to the snow. Was super cheap, and when we arrived (late) there was a note for us with the key and the room was already heated ready for us. The room was great with a fridge, toaster, kettle, and microwave (much more than you'll get in other places for that price). The overall... More

We spent a night here during the July school holidays and it was great. There rooms are clean and have a kitchenette ( which is very old but clean). The rooms were very warm and the beds comfortable. We were travelling with two children but our room had enough beds for a family with four children. Very well priced and... More

Stayed at the bunkhouse for a night with my family on our way back from the snow, the room was clean and warm, the beds were comfortable and it is in a quiet spot. Only minutes walk to restaurants, pubs and cafes. Very cheap and reasonable accommodation only a hour from the snow. Would stay there again.

Cooma seems to have many dated unappealing expensive motels so we decided to go really budget and stay at the Bunkhouse Motel. I must say I was a bit nervous as I had booked for my Colleagues too but was pleasantly surprised. Rooms were old and daggy and a new paint job just to brighten things up wouldn't go astray,...

You can't go past THE BUNKHOUSE when you want to stay somewhere in Cooma, Snowy Mountains. Helen or Peter or Breeze will look after you. It's 1 block to the main street where it all happens.... coffee, restaurants, tennis courts, ski rental, pubs and even car yards! If you want to go cycling, call in to Cooma Sports Store and...

My friends recently stayed her & found it budget but comfy & a great centrally located Motel run by a friendly family, remember you get what you pay for, as long as it is clean & comfy & the right price that's all one needs.

Stayed for three nights as a base for work. The room I was in was small and a bit run down. Having said that it was only $50 per night with an ensuite, microwave, fridge, tv, tea and coffee in the room. It's not the Waldorf but hey the bed was comfortable and it was quiet. What more do you... More
