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

We were looking for a place to stay at the last minute. Came across this place and they had a room. Place looks a little bit like the average pub. The motel section is a little bit dated but once inside it was extremely clean and comfortable. The guy at the bar/reception was very pleasant and helpful. There is a... More

We stayed here for four nights on business. The twin room was actually a double and a single, but the room was spacious, clean and pleasant, with a rather more modern bathroom. The parking was behind the hotel, which took a moment to find, but was close to the back door of the residential part of the Tavern. We ate... More

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
