For a single bloke on the move the room did the job. Big and comfortable with a warm shower and a feeling of oldish but very clean. $100 was fair and did the job. The real winner was the Scotch Fillett steak & peas and carrotts. First class steak - big, tender & cooked to perfection. I will be back

Two friends and I stayed for 3 nights last week (including a Friday) - very quiet (ask for room on side of church). Altho' not 5 star the room was clean and spacious & was close to everything and for us close to our friends who live in Bello. Air conditioner noisy. I would recommend to others

A very clean & comfortable place to stay right in the heart of Bellingen. As rooms are all out the back, they are not subject to noise from the street or bar area. Bistro meals were perfectly cooked with lovely fresh vegetables. Overall as good as any motel with restaurant with the advantage of central location.

Not flash by 5 star standards BUT a newly renovated large room with all the necessary items at hand and such a big bright room. Excellent Quality bedding Best location Great staff and excellent well priced bistro. No, It is not flashy, just simple country town accommodation right in the middle of trendy Bellingen (but quiet).

We stayed for 2 nights in February. We were travelling from Queensland and arrived at midnight. The staff at Diggers made arrangements for us to access our room easily even though it was late when we arrived. The rooms were super clean, spacious & quiet. I tend to be picky as I own a resort cleaning business on the Sunshine... More

A very pleasant surprise behind the pub; the staff were delightful and helpful and the large room was clean, quiet, with a great hot shower. Decided to check out the restaurants in town and being Monday not a lot open, asked at the Federal hotel but were greeted by "It's Monday schnitzel night no booking no table"......hmmm so went straight...

The Diggers Tavern restaurant was recommend to us for an enjoyable meal and we were not disappointed. Quite an extensive menu and our meals arrived promptly and a large serve. My steak was cooked to my liking as were the good variety of vegetables. My husband had the garlic prawns in cream sauce. Both meals were delicious! A pleasant atmosphere,... More

Great inexpensive stopover on our way to Byron Bay. The room was spacious, airy and exceptionally clean. We stayed in room 11. It's surprisingly quiet considering you're at the back of a pub? But we did stay mid week, so not sure if it's noisier on the weekend? Highly recommend
