Clean, comfortable room and pleasant professional attention at checkin and check-out. Tradies starting the day early with the resulting noise and vehicle activity was an issue; but in any mining service town across Australia these days, that is the norm. The cooked breakfast was of a high standard too. The motel restaurant has an extensive evening meal menu and our... More

Having been delayed on a business trip I searched for a motel in Lithgow. I contacted 2 other motels one of which the receptionist was quite rude and the other, well, no-one was on site. I then contacted the Zig Zag and was advised that they had rooms available. The young lady on the phone was very pleasant and advised... More

Typical motel units with good size room and bathroom. Fittings good but decor maybe a bit tired. Swimming pool is small but useful. Restaurant really excellent. Had best bottle of wine in Australia here. Breakfast starts very early and finishes at 8.30 a.m. These tourists just about made it on time !

A very clean and spacious room. We had a double room. The bathroom was very small and for those people that are larger this may be for an issue. However, for us this was great 'cause we don't live in the bathroom and the extra space in the room was welcome. The downside is the pillows were rubbish. Both myself... More

We stayed for 6 nights in this motel and were very disappointed with the value for money and poor attitude toward customer service. The 3 different receptionists we dealt with were all very short and dismissive of their guests (must be a unique training course they go through). The rooms were very expensive - $130 for a double and $140... More

Read some previous reviews of 4 star accommodation. I do not agree with this rating. The rooms were a little on the small size, the bathroom was tiny. Not much bigger than you would find on a cruise ship. No table and only one chair. No toaster either. But the large TV and the old style air conditioner worked well,... More

Thank you very much for your review of our property. Our standard rooms are our older style rooms and the smaller rooms on the property. We do also have larger deluxe accommodation available. However, regardless of the type of room booked, we certainly pride ourselves on our cleanliness and service. Kind regards, Cassandra More

I arrived at 10pm on Friday night and left by 8am the next morning - just a quick stop over to buy a car. The room was very clean and had some nice little 'extras' which most motels do not have. The new owners are lovely and provide great service. Room service breakfast was wonderful and very reasonbly priced. Plenty... More

Stayed for one night at a cost of $135. Our room was very small with a tiny shower room and toilet built in. The furniture and decor is very tired and dated but clean. On a positive note, we did sleep well as the bed was comfortable and it was quiet, despite TV noise from the adjacent room carrying through... More

My husband and I stayed at the Zig Zag motel two years ago and found it to be comfortable and reasonably priced however not quite value for money. We had to pay extra for breakfast and internet. We decided to return in November this year. We were pleasantly surprised.The room was cheaper and offered a cooked breakfast with a continental... More

I had dinner at the Zwitchback restaurant at the Zig Zag motel. The food was lovely, the only downside was the side salad which was just lettuce & 2 strips of capscium, the other guest had the same thing but with tomato in it. A good choice of menu available.
