20 year old motel large and spacious grounds, room clean and comfortable. But for a motel this age it had uncomfortable chairs in the room. Winton like all the towns in western Queensland is suffering badly from the drought and fewer travellers. The restaurant is comfortable and again in the country the meal are huge and good , but usually... More

We had not stayed at this motel before and therefore only knew what what was on their website. Our reception was polite and efficient and we found our room to be quite spacious with a very comfortable queen sized bed. There is a restaurant advertised as being available but unfortunately Sunday is the chef's night off so the restaurant is... More

The Boulder Opal Motor Inn, besides having absolutely fantastic food (a lovely surprise in outback Queensland), has what must surely be the only swimming pool with a wall with built in boulder opals! The amenities were good and we appreciated the toiletries supplied. Not all outback Queensland accommodation venues supply these, so be prepared to take your own.

We were driving back from the NT and needed to stay in Winton. I had a bad experience the last time I was here and I thought surely it must be better, well it was worse. The door at least locked this time but the place was filthy. The bed sheets were dirty and the dirt was everywhere. I am... More

The Boulder Opal is a fabulous place to stay. I'm a regular visitor and the staff are always very welcoming and happy to assist with requests or solve issues professionally and politely. Rooms are always well presented, tidy and comfortable. This is also a great place for families & kids. I really love the restaurant and I especially loved the... More

My wife and I stayed here on our way to Brisbane . After reading the previous comment on leaving the dog in the car or tied up outside my wife and I decided that our puppy can stay inside our room on her mat. At least she won't be left in the car where the car will smell after she... More

Nice clean room, free washing machine, plenty of room to park our motorcycles out the fron of our room and a nice pool ready for a dip when we arrived on a 40℃ day. The motel is a few hundred meters down the street from town, which isn't a bad thing in my book. But what completely blew me away... More

Stayed overnight, found this motel while driving into town, driveway, gate and fences looks inviting so I decided to give it a try. Check in is uneventful, prompt service. Room on enrty is clean and tidy. I love the earth toiletries, it is not the normal low quality toiletries I have been getting for the past 2 weeks on the... More

We selected this motel for our stay based on Trip advisor reviews. We weren't disappointed. Our room clean and comfortable. Nicely maintained grounds. The pool a good spot to cool down after taking in the sights. We were able to walk to 'town' being less than a block away. We enjoyed our stay in Winton and enjoyed our time at... More
