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

This motel is located near the middle of town, an easy walk to cafes, restaurants and shops. It is certainly an older style, but bathroom was updated and roomy. Good value for the price ($110 a night), which also seems to be the same whether you stay weekend or mid-week.

We stayed 2 nights on our way down the coast. We were pleasantly surprised by this place. Yes, it is part of a pub and did sound a bit dodgy when the tourist centre recommended them, but the rooms were actually quite large, well equipped, very clean and only $100 a night. The motel is situated behind the pub and... More

Value for money is an understatement for this place. Myself and two other ladies booked for one night at an incredible rate. The Diggers Tavern is located right in the main street and the rooms are at the back and even though there was a DJ playing, our sleep was not disturbed. We all had our own comfy bed, air... More
