Just visited there for a drink and meal only to find out the power was out an this side of Bellingen. Unlike the other places this place offered to cook food with gas. They gave us options because of the limitations but good on them for not saying " sorry no power" like the other establishments. The food was great... More

We stayed here overnight after planning to stop in Dorrigo & finding everything was booked out. It was nearly 9:00pm when we arrived in Bellingen and we booked in without seeing the room first as we were tired, hadn't had dinner, and had to leave early the next morning. We were pleasantly surprised. The room was very comfortable, well equipped... More

The Motel is attached to the Pub, so take the side door if you want to avoid some of the drunks in the public bar. The rooms are clean but claustrophobic - no views other than the car park which is next to the bottle shop. You can't park next to your room like most Motels, so be prepared to... More

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
