Four of us stayed two nights in Roma on business, and found the Starlight Motel to be perfect. Reception and staff were extremely helpful, very early morning breakfasts and boxed lunches were no problem, location is close to excellent pubs for a feed and a cool-down, and the rooms are as quiet as a mouse.

First time I stayed at the Starlight. Comfortable bed and spacious clean room. The position is well suited for walking into the main shopping area. We were at the back of the hotel so there was no road noise. The managers were very friendly and helpful. There is no restaurant but there are plenty of eating places close by. Room... More

We had no complaints...comfortable bed and pillows, quiet split system air con, clean and spacious room. The location is handy and in walking distance to woolworths, local shops and a good meal to be had at the commonwealth hotel up the road.

the hotel is modern and clean although it doesn't have a restaurant, they provide great home cooked meals for a good price. Bed is comfortable and room has ample space to move around. Close to shops and public transport, staff very friendly.

I am reluctant to write this review as I do not want this motel to be overbooked when we return. The food was perfect and hospitality, excellent. Travelling all of the time we rarely stay in Roma due to a number of unpleasant motel experiences. Will return to this motel every time.

Thank you so very much for taking the time to write your very kind review. As far as hospitality goes, we just treat all persons how we personally would like to be treated, it's not rocket science.

Everything is beautifully presented and the owners are fantastic hosts. There's not many options in town for meals but the owner's home-cooked meals brought to your door are highly recommended. An evening walk to the local park "Shady's Lagoon" is also highly recommended.

Friendly and welcoming. Rooms are clean and airy. Even on the main road it was quiet. Walked to the nearby hotel, The White Bull, for a delicious meal. Within walking distance of the town. Will give you a toaster if required.

Easy to find motel. Large motel rooms. Air-Con didn't work properly. Road traffic can be heard from room. Noise from surrounding rooms disappointing - Not motels fault but others had no regard for other guests. Returning back to their rooms late evening and constantly slamming car doors and having loud conversations outside our room. Had to turn on air conditioning... More

We are sorry your stay with us was memorable for the wrong reasons. When you booked your stay with us online, via our website, you used your Amex card to secure the booking.

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
