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. The motel was clean and the reception very accommodating and friendly. Just a block away is a supermarket and only a few minutes more to the centre of... More

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.

We fly around Australia in a small plane and, as a result, have stayed in quite a lot of country motels. We recently stayed in the Starlight in Roma and were well impressed, which is saying something given that we had just finished a five night stay in a five-star resort in Palm Cove and found it relatively disappointing.

This is an ideal place to stay for a short time while travel through Roma or for spending a couple of days in the area. The staff was friendly and helpful and the rooms were basic but very clean. It was easy to walk into the town centre for dinner.

Hi Sue. Thank you very much for your review. Thanks also for informing readers about our central location in town, it is a very easy short walk to numerous country pub style meals, or to check out the 'boutiques' (surprisingly) in Roma. Very clean rooms - has to be the most important aspect to running a successful Motor Inn. Have... More

The on-line booking worked a treat. The check -in and check-out were welcoming and easy. The room was bright, clean and cheerful with everything functioning. A bit strange having the hand basin in the main room. A bit expensive, but on a par with other Roma hotels, so I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
