Excellent service, quality, cleanliness and easy to access/find. Has all the facilities and space of a higher price hotel but at a very good price. Stubbed my toe on the rippled wall next to the bed but that's to be expected in the dark in an unfamiliar place :D

We stayed in the cheapest available room, and were nothing less than impressed. It's very clean, very comfortable, and you are made to feel very welcome. Plenty of hot water. We were a little cold though during the night, but nothing too bad. Would definitely stay again if up that way.

Chose this motel because of glowing TripAdvisor comments but these must be for the apartments. We got one of the last available units. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. However, the air-conditioner didn't work properly (with the fan cutting out after an abnormally short time) so the room was uncomfortably cool. It was a very cold night.... More

Hi, I am sorry that the heating in your Air Conditioner didn't heat, unfortunately we never know when these appliances can fail. Our reception hours do close at 8pm on a Sunday but regardless we wished you had of called us on your room phone, as this was definitely an emergency and we would have found you alternative heating.

This has to be one of the best motels I have stayed in, spotless inside and out. Room cleaning, maintenance etc the best it can get. I have stayed in many properties around the world and this one cannot be faulted, highly recommended and well done management and staff!

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
