On a two month trip and this was the best value accommodation on our last night. Great bed, tastefully furnished, very clean. Foxtel and excellent WiFi. We had a lovely meal served in our room. Ian and Donna were the hosts one would hope to have, made us very welcome. Sad that their rugby team lost that night!

The title of your review is very kind, just wondering if you felt sorry for us after the All Blacks smashed the Wallabies at Eden Park... It was an absolute pleasure meeting you both, safe travels. Will think of you during the upcoming World Cup, don't like the All Blacks chances...?! More

Staff were very helpful and friendly, (we stayed one night). The rooms were clean and orderley. Shampoo, Soap and Shower Gel provided in dispensers on wall in Kitchen & Bathroom. Because it was cold the air conditioner did 'kick in' on it's automated cycle and was a bit noisy through the night, although overall it was a very comfortable night's... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to tell others about the Starlight Motor Inn. Yes, we get good feedback on the toiletries / wall dispensers.

We have stayed at the Starlight on our way through to Clermont twice now. The friendly, warm and very efficient service is wonderful. The rooms were very comfortable and spotless. Great recommendations for a quick and easy dinner at the tavern around the corner and instant phone call when I left something behind the bathroom door when we left. Thanks... More

Thank you very much for your kind words, it was a pleasure accommodating you. I was tempted to keep the Sarong you left behind the bathroom door, but I didn't think orange was my colour !!??

The owners are so wonderful and offer the most friendly welcome. The place is very clean and good size shower. Basic room layout with plenty of space. The highlight is the home cooked meals, they are sensational and well worth having, both dinner and breakfast. I had two weekly stays for work and I didn't have to eat out the... More

Thank you so much for 'telling the world' about our meals delivered to rooms. I think it is not so much the 'protein' (as per M/chef...) on the plate, but the fresh steamed veggies surrounding it that people love. I think the trick is to cook them just slightly 'al dente', nothing worse than mushy vegetables... Thanks again...safe travels. More

End of day travel with no accommodation set up. Checked on Trip Advisor and this one was recommended. Quaint, older but clean and spruced up. The hotel staff is friendly and helpful. Worst impression was being met with mothball smell in room. There is some noise from highway on the north end of the motel. Don't miss the opportunity to... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our Motor Inn. You must have 'lucked out' re the mothballs!! My wife and our housekeeper are fanatical about cleanliness and presentation of the rooms. When we clean and rotate the charcoal blankets in our room (charcoal goes well with white linen, we think anyway...) our spare blankets are cleaned and put... More

Nice place to stay with reasonably big rooms. Great bathroom with plenty of room in the shower. Only room on our holiday that had a microwave. Room was a bit noisy from the traffic driving past. I've read other reviews about noisy neighbours, so I really hope that there was nobody in the rooms around us as my son cried... More

I have stayed at several other places in Roma but kept coming back to the Starlight. Reasonable rate, friendly service, comfortable bedding and linen, fresh and delicious vegetables with meals, microwave in room, laundry room, and convenient location have made me look no further when choosing accommodation in Roma.

Wow...thank you so much for your very kind words. The definition of hospitality is: 'the friendly and generous reception and entertainment of guests, visitors, or strangers'. If you enjoy meeting new people every day, being hospitable is easy. If it doesn't come easy, time to get out of the game... Have a good 1... More

I have to concur with most of the other reviews of this motel. Ian makes you feel welcome from the very 1st phone call and carries it through until after you have left. Great comfy beds and pillows, very clean rooms and a nice quiet location, even though it is on the main road. A fairly typical modern motel. The... More

Ian went out of his way to make my stay at the Starlight Motor Inn an enjoyable experience. You expect service with your accommodation however at the Starlight you definitely receive service and more. Highly Recommend.
