We are sorry for the other guests that were noisy and causing you grief. We did not have any phone call or knock on the manager's door till mid night. If we knew, we would have approached those guests to see if they could reduce their noise. We would look into reducing the tap noise. We had given a discount... More

We are sorry that one of the four hot water went down and was affecting a couple of rooms on that end. The electric blanket maybe loose at the power point. We are sorry for those unforeseen issues and you had a free stay. More

The room was comfortable but very small. It did contain all we needed but after midnight the trucks started thundering past our front room and that was the end of sleep. The curtains did not meet in the middle neither because they were partly damaged. The ventilation was not good as opening the front window would have made the trucks... More

We stayed on our way home from Sydney. We were astounded by the exceptionally well mannered, friendly, professional staff on checking in. The rooms are roomy with plenty of facilities available. Bathroom huge and beds comfy. We will definitely be returning to stay again. Breakfast cooked to perfection, plentiful and filling. Prices are not over rated for rooms or meals.... More

Driving from the Blue Mountains, we contacted The Wayfarer's Motel to check availability for 1 night - we were in luck. And luck it was as our room was very clean, comfortable and contained all we needed. The bathroom was the largest we encountered during our trip, with plenty of towels and lots of hot water with good pressure. The... More

Basic, very basic. Yes it was clean and it had four walls, a roof and beds. Don't expect anything more, the staff at the desk weren't that friendly/helpful either. Won't be staying there again and hopefully you can find somewhere else to stay too.
