We spent one night here after a very long day's drive. We were too tired to venture out for the evening meal so availed ourselves of the in-house menu. The hosts Donna and Ian could not have been more helpful, and the evening meal cooked by Donna was delightful and reasonably priced. The room was clean, comfortable, spacious and quiet.... More

Thank you so much for telling other travellers that our Motor Inn is Clean, Comfortable, Spacious & Quiet, much appreciated. With Roma being a logical stopover for long cross country trips, we are finding that many guests are happy to order room service dinner to their room, walk around the corner to a bottle shop, glass of wine before dinner,...

So friendly, so welcoming, so clean. We loved the detail of the local art in the room and especially the friendly and helpful hosts, Ian and Donna. Great variety of pillows and high thread count was exquisite. We will stay there again and recommend to others. Next time we look forward to sampling the home made Italian cuisine.

Thanks Kevin for your very kind words. Especially for bringing to peoples attention: 'Great variety of pillows and high thread count was exquisite'. We agree, there is nothing better than getting into bed with beautiful white linen (with a high thread count, not hold them up and read a newspaper through them!!). We also decided to offer guests the choice... More

Stayed here on a Saturday afternoon just before a large storm front came through. The room was very clean and the facilities were great. We used the washing machine which cost $4 per wash and the dryer was $5. It was well worth it because it was clean and easy to operate. The owners were very friendly and couldn't more... More

I have stayed in four different motels in roma and this would be the best so far and I have no need to go anywhere else ever again. The rooms were spotless, beds comfortable and very quiet. Great central location with great hosts. I will be back.

We had one night here on our way to Carnarvon Gorge. It makes a great waypoint travelling our to the gorge but worth booking ahead given that Roma is a busy town.

I have stayed in several different motels in Roma and the Starlight is the best by far. Ian and Donna are the consummate hosts and nothing is ever a problem. The fresh fruit salad is to die for. No other motel in Roma comes close to this level of service. Stuart W.

We stayed here for two nights, a week apart en route to Longreach. We stayed in a family room which was ideal for us - we had a queen and single bed in the main room and the kids had twin beds in the second room. The rooms were spotless with fresh and high quality linen and towels. The managers... More

The best service, cleanliness and value for money I have experienced in over 30 years. Ian and Donna went out of their way to prepare the best home cooked meal that dealt with my coeliac, dairy and grain intolerances. The rooms are large, beautifully maintained and have modern quiet air conditioners. Wow. I was so impressed.
