I had to visit this beautiful little town and booked into Diggers thinking it's only for two nights........wrong. I was very surprised at how clean, spacious and catered for everything I needed. Wonderful polished floors , small fridge, ironing board, kettle, toaster and big bathroom! The bed was very comfortable and the rooms were quiet despite being at one end... More

Stopping overnight to visit friends in Bellingen and needed 2 good value rooms as travelling with another couple. This place fills the bill with very clean basic but comfortable rooms. Parking is easily available at the rear of the pub. Staff are helpful and even though a pub there is no noise. Bellingen is worth a visit with many interesting... More

We stopped in Bellingen to break the journey from Sydney to the Far North Coast. We arrived with no booking. The exterior of the Diggers Rest is a bit off-putting but the rooms, at the rear, are a very good size, clean and tidy and very quiet. The welcome was fine. Bellingen is a delightful spot, well worth the side... More

The room was a good size and clean. We stopped here for two nights on our way up to Byron bay. The actual pub was not great but the room was fine. I guess the main thing for us was that the air con wasn't strong enough. The room was still really hot. However, apart from this it was really... More

Needed a night in town to head home the next day. The Pub itself is pretty awful in that 90's chrome and fluorescent sense. Pretty easy to avoid. Rooms were small but clean and quiet. $100 a night. The Tourism Info centre was next to completely useless. This was found by default. The rooms are at the back and quiet... More

Needed somewhere to stay in Bellingen without busting the budget. Also, wanted to park the car and walk everywhere. Diggers ticked all the box's. This is an ideal location and the facilities are clean and comfortable. The room we stayed in had been renovated and the bed was comfy with feather pillows. The bathroom was a good size with shower... More

Stayed two nights at this place which is very popular with locals for eating and drinking too. Spotless room and enjoyed my conversations with all of the bar staff I spoke to, very friendly. Great base for exploring Bellingen.

We spent one night in Bellingen at the Diggers Tavern and Motel which is situated in the main street in the middle of town. We probably wouldn't have thought to enquire here as it looked like a noisy pub. However the Tourist Information Centre had told us it had rooms so we took a look. The ensuite room was spacious,...

We stayed recently at Diggers Tavern for a couple of nights. The rooms are basic and clean for a one night stop over. However the parking is not 'motel' style but instead is the general pub car-park and for those accessing the shops, it is also on a slope. There is a short distance to walk to access the rooms...

Don't be put off by the exterior or the regulars in the bar who stare at you if you walk through the tavern to get to the rooms. The room was cheap, clean and, for a base for one or two nights, perfectly acceptable. Don't expect much but for the price it is a good deal. We didn't eat in... More
