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

We had not planned to stay in Winton but were pleasantly surprised with our accommodation. Helpful reception, good room with plenty of space and a very comfortable bed. Wifi in our room which was a bonus.

I usually stay here for work, but never again. Arrival and checking was fine. After being told, "I think the room is ready?" Unpacked to be met by two pillow cases on the bed, obviously you put them on yourself. We out for tea with friends and came back for a shower! The hot water literally dribbled out and mixed... More

No real complaints - clean and comfortable just a little overpriced for a basic motel room. Restaurant was good and pool and grounds well maintained. About 1 km walk into town.
