Stayed here after looking at several motels, we had driven 9 hours from Melbourne. Beds okay. Very Clean. Large room. Owners very friendly and helpful. On highway, only a little noisy. Would stay again.

We stayed overnight in the family room and found it adequate . Room had usual fixtures and was clean and beds comfy . Easy walk to town centre, pubs and bowling club. Owners were very helpful and we had great nights sleep after riding motorcycles all day

An hour from Bathurst A good motel in a quiet town. Just right for what we wanted. It is handy to all local facilities. The same towels for four nights was a bit rich. Having to ask for cutlery and plates seemed unnecessary and time wasting. What is wrong with leaving them in the room

I had booked 2 rooms and wasn't disappointed at all. Both rooms were very nice, clean and quite comfortable. There was plenty of on site parking and it was right in town. Unfortunately their wifi was down but we found a hot spot in the Target store and also outside the Services NSW office which we used. We wanted to... More

A great motel with THE most comfy bed and cosy room. Great shower, so noise proof we only heard the rain when we opened the bathroom door and could hear it through the skylight. The owners are very very friendly and accommodating even letting my hubby park our precious rare car under the carport where the owners car normally parks.... More

I don't have anything bad to say about this motel. I just don't have anything GOOD to say. It was adequate, but tired. And the towels were so, SO tired. Once upon a time they would have been brown and fluffy with tight selvedges. Today they are faded, thin, and tatty, and were the first things I saw arranged as... More

We booked this motel after reading all the reviews on this site. It is a grade above the typical 1970's country motel you see in most towns. The owners are most helpful. You should note that the air conditioner is inadequate and took ages to heat the room beyond 18 degrees. Also there is no heating in the bathroom which... More

What wonderful friendly service. Next time I'm travelling to the area I will definitely be staying here again. Very comfortable rooms with air con and electric blankets for the cooler months. Very clean. Breakfast was delicious too. Easy access and off street parking.
