I chose this motel based on the Tripadvisor reviews. The only thing I can't complain about is the cleanliness. It has nothing else going for it. Very, very outdated furnishings. The bed still had an electric blanket it on it that made it very lumpy and bumpy and makes me wonder when it was last aired or turned. The air... More

What nice people! We stopped here as a base for the Warrumbungles, and really enjoyed our stay. The rooms are clean and basic, but were good value. The pool was well-kept and the staff were helpful, kind, and welcoming. We had our evening meal here and the food was good and the waitress was friendly and so kind to our... More

Good stopover accommodation, room was clean and comfortable. Our room was towards the back of the motel and very quiet. As with majority of country motels decor etc is dated, but everything was perfectly functional and I’d rather reasonable pricing which this place was, than paying for a designer suite. We were travelling with our small dog and it was... More

We booked a double room at this place for a couple of nights. The rooms are adequate, very clean & well stocked, albeit limited food preparation facilities, but spacious surrounds, a fantastic central pool, good restaurant and food (note outdoor bar for pizzas & seating area with shade roof), and above all the staff are very friendly, helpful & relaxed....

We stayed here last night en route to Queensland from Victoria. We stayed in a family room with a double and four singles. After 14 hours on the road the kids had a swim in the pool and we ate reasonably priced pizza from their restaurant in the gazebo by the pool. It's a neat and tidy budget motel, perfect... More

We stayed here at the beginning of October because we were after an overnight budget stay and others had posted that the place was ok. It isn't. It's very very average. I'll list things in nor real order... 1 - The TV was 20 inch in size. my home computer monitor is larger. This screams "we're cheap". 2 - The... More

We stayed here for one night. We had a very friendly welcome. The room was clean and bed comfortable. They have a restaurant on site and we ordered a pizza delivered to our room. It was delicious. Would stay there again.
