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. As far as the chicken and fresh steam vegetables (al dente...) well that must be Donna's secret sauce. Have a good one &... More

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. Generalising I would say that most people are aware that an Amex card attracts a surcharge at many establishments, this is clearly explained in our Terms &... More

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
