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

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.
