We stayed for two nights on a particularly cold, wet and windy weekend in August in Lithgow. The room was warm and everything was fine with our stay. Friendly staff, reasonable restaurant, we didn't try breakfast, opted for a cafe in town instead.

We stayed in the Zig Zag motel over the Easter Long weekend, we were travelling backwards and forwards to Newnes State forest for an event, which meant we were leaving early in the morning and arriving back very late at night. We found everything great, apart from the bed sheets. They were very starchy, they felt like sandpaper under us.... More

We stayed for one night after attending a wedding, the room was spacious, very clean and warm, perfect for an overnight stay and we would stay again if we were looking for accommodation in the area at a reasonable price. Lithgow is a charming town with a few good places to eat.

Stayed here during July. Was on a visit to the blue Mountains, and the Motel had a reasonable price for two people. However I would rate this Motel a 3 star not a 4. There is a heater in the room, that hardly gives out any heat, but plenty of blankets soon sorted that. Receptionist was lovely and polite and... More

Fine, adequate, nothing outstanding. Comfy beds. Didn't eat in the restaurant as we arrived quite late, but I hear it's good. Noisy aircon was wheezing and carrying on all night. No NRMA discount - poo.

Work has taken me to Lithgow and beyond lately but I hadn't had a chance to explore, so I took advantage of the school holidays and a a rare free weekend and took the family. We chose the Zig Zag Motel based on reviews here. Booking was a breeze. We checked in around 7.30 on Friday night and found our... More

Although close to a highway and busy rail line, with long, night time freighters, I found my room comfortable and restful. The staff were helpful in resolving any issues I had. I did find the freight trains noisy, but the A/c countered that.

We were greeted right away by the waitress and she was so pleasant and nice, and she chatted with us and made us feel welcome. We were seated right away next to the window. it was nice to be able to see out of those windows while enjoying our dinner. We both couldn't decide what to order so we went... More

At short notice I needed to stay in Lithgow for work. A friend suggested the Zig Zag Motel. It is more than 20 years since I stayed in Lithgow, and I was there for 3 nights! I found the staff friendly and helpful, the meals excellent and the room to my expectations. I travel a lot for work, but rarely... More
