Good place to stay. Facilities e .g. Spa looked good but we didn't use them. Owner very welcoming. 1.5k walk to town was a nice stroll. Would go again. Plenty of stuff provided in bathroom and clean towels. If you want to feel welcome give it a go.

It has been a long time between drinks at "The Lodge" having spent many nights there on business almost a decade ago. Peter and Robyn (new owners) offer excellent fare from the kitchen and are all out to do what they can to make your stay enjoyable. The rooms are in need of an update which Peter and Robyn have...

This is the worst accommodation I have had in years. Dirty,dark,and in need of a make over. The bed and pillow were terrible - unable to sleep. The bathroom was dirty as was the crusty spoon I stirred my coffee with. Too dark to see until too late. The TV remote worked only at random. I cannot believe anyone would... More

Just had the best motel experience. We were treated to the best meal ever. The chicken supreme was incredible, as was my char grilled steak. The fire place created a lovely atmosphere. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and had a lovely view of the gardens. We woke to the morning calls of the kookaburra. We... More

Had a terrible experience with this motel. Quite sad as we are locals who have stayed a number of times. Different people taken over perhaps? We booked in at reception to our prebooked motel rooms. To be told she had to shuffle rooms around to fit us (how when we were prebooked days in advance I don't know) than we... More

We were heading back from Karumba on a Monday afternoon, it was getting late so we rang to ask if they were open for dinner. Yes! And they took a late booking for 7.45pm. Not many restaurants open on a Monday and our booking meant they had to keep the restaurant open in a quiet country town just for 2... More

On my recent stay here, I found the rooms to be clean and the staff friendly. Although it's located close to a major road with frequent heavy trucks, I never noticed any traffic noise at all. Overall, the value is good, surrounding gardens nice and the nearby natural attractions spectacular. I'd certainly stay here again. Oh yes, the restaurant was... More

If you want Five Star 'Luxury', go elsewhere. But, if you want Luxurious, pleasant surrounds, rural sounds & clean & comfortable, you've come to the right place. This place doesn't boast Five Star, because it isn't, it's better! Yes, the Lodge has been here for some time & yes, maybe the Interior 'Design' isn't as modern as Five Star. But,... More
