We stayed for a wedding in a nearby woodshed. Andy was a great host who made sure we were comfortable, and went out of his way to 'recover' our car the next day! The motel is cute and comfortable and represents excellent value right in the lovely romantic town of Braidwood. It also is stiving to be self sufficient, with... More

I wouldn't recommend anyone staying here it's a hole and the guy that owns it is a creep. He lurks the corridors at all ours of the night, cooking up chickens in the house where guests stay at 2am. The accomodation down the back of the premises is horrible, the bathroom in one room had no drainage it was a... More

I recently stayed here over a weekend with my family. We stayed in the large restored house, and had a wonderful time. The large rooms, antique furniture and homely feel made the stay relaxing and comfortable. The sauna in the corner was a great little bonus! Staff friendly and very helpful. I can highly recommend it to all!

Evening though our stay was short it was very pleasant. The owner Andy was extremely accommodating and helpful. Our room was massive and private. Great price and great little town. It was nice to be able for them to fit us in at such short notice. Thank you Torpy's

Sue and I were on a genealogy trail tracing forebears who were pioneers in the Braidwood , Araluen gold mines in the mid 1800's. We stayed two nights at Torpys, because of it's delightful heritage setting on acreage beside a creek within easy walking of Braidwood town centre. Sue had easy access to the Braidwood Museum, where Ros was so... More

I have, on several occasions, telephoned Torpys Eco Motel. On the first experience I was grunted at by someone who answered my call whilst trying to get accommodation for my parents. I attempted to book and was told nobody was in the office and to call back which I never did. On the second occasion, I telephoned on behalf of... More

This is a great experience with rooms in the Guest House beautifully decked out with period furniture and fittings. Very spacious and comfortable and great tranquil location. Andy, the owner could not do enough to make our stay great. We had 17 in our party so had all the guest house and most of the motel and all had a... More

Torpys Hotel is a throwback to the sixties in this quaint town which has lost much of its population. Eco is a euphemism for home made and somewhat strange with massive Aircon units on the roof. The chalet rooms have comfortable beds and overlook a pleasant garden. The showers are primitive. The owner declares himself at odds with the neighbours.... More

Hi, We loved our evening at this motel of heritage surrounds and decor. The manager was very helpful and thoughtful. The whole place is well appointed. It has a nice country atmosphere. Thanks to the manager for making our stay in Braidwood comfortable and welcoming.
