Stayed here recently on my 2nd visit to this town. Motel was located just north of the CBD on the Carnarvon Hwy. The Royal Hotel will pick you up and drop you off for dinner as there is no restaurant here, they will also deliver a meal to your motel door. Most restaurants in town will charge your meals back...

Few of us traveling so we got a 2 room apartment, worth every cent. Self contained cooking facilities, good size bathroom and the room is super clean. Short drive from the town centre, which is ok if you have a car or like a little walk. Will stay here again if in Roma.

Stayed here in early January 2014 on the way from Port Douglas to Melbourne. Very happy with the apartment we had and cannot fault them for all round cleanness etc. Didn't have time to check out what else was on site but judging by the room, and other reviews, I am sure it is all excellent. The motel is about... More

I spent 2 nights at this motel and loved it. Friendly faces on arrival, very helpful and understanding. The room was clean and organised and very comfortable. It was nice not having a air cond blowing over a bed like many hotels. The pool was clean and enjoyable but suggest placing a umberalla or awning over the spa part of... More

We drove from Brisbane and so were ready to relax when we arrived in Roma. The motel room was spacious and we were able to park the car under cover. In the heat, this cuts the heat and provides a sheltered place. The bed was comfortable and there was a pleasant view into a grassed area from the window as... More

After spending a long day on the road from Brisbane with the kids bored in the backseat, we were delighted to have an upgrade to an apartment - two bedrooms, each with a TV plus a large bathroom with bathtub and great shower. It was great to have a lovely night before our camping trip to Carnarvon Gorge. Bonus of... More

Beautifully kept grounds and lawns. Feels really lovely when you arrive. Rooms very spacious and well appointed. Big tick for cleanliness too. It was very quiet at night and no annoying outside night lights. I really liked it and the only negative was the bed was very hard. That's obviously a personal thing and other people may find it perfect.... More

I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the door to my room, this had everything you could ask for, clean and comfy bed, kitchenette BIG screen TV table and chairs, good size bathroom and a a solid front door and double glazed windows which blocked 90% of the traffic noise. I could not fault anything. As well as the room... More

Room was clean...bed hard and shower very small. Management were away at the time... the relief staff were friendly enough. Unlike most of the motels i've stayed wireless internet was not free. Next time i'm in Roma i will most likely try another motel. I like Roma the town is clean and has feel good vibe to it.

This is probably the nicest motel in Australia. Updated rooms, suites and apartments are tastefully decorated, with quality furnishings and materials, and the management and service is first class. Roomwise, it is good value for money, but meals and extra charges are very high - because of lots of business from mining companies who are happy to pay it. There... More
