I stayed at the Gums overnight to visit some family and this place is the nicest, most spacious & downright homely motor inn I've ever stayed in. The rooms are spacious, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful & at such I good price I can't think of anywhere better to stay here in Chinchilla!

We stayed one night. The lady at reception was friendly and welcoming. I was hungry after missing lunch. We ordered room service which was a little expensive but the meals were large, well presented and fresh. The room was large with a very comfortable queen size bed. The shower was large with lovely toiletry accessories. The location was great within... More

We do receive many comments about the large size of our ensuite bathrooms it's good to have plenty of room to move. Many of our guests walk to... More

A comfy bed, plenty of pillows and blankets for the colder nights. My air con unit did make a heck of a lot of... More

Wow! I wasn't expecting such a well laid out and comfortable stay in a highway motel. The rooms are very modern with some lovely touches. They include a spacious layout with table, 2 chairs, two sweater sofa, larger than normal fridge with a good mini bar selection, and a flat screen TV with foxtel. The bed was queen size, high...
