Whilst this Hotel is the best in town, it doesn't have any standout features, in places its rather old and tired, never the less, its still clean and tidy. The rooms are quite large and have a rather homely feeling, with a back door leading out to a shared courtyard. The layout of the collective rooms is rather interesting; rooms... More

We recently stayed at the Kidman on our way from Wollongong to Adelaide. Whilst the motel is not new, the rooms were fastidiously neat and clean. Great value family accommodation and the staff went out of their way to help us! Highly recommend this as a value for money place to stay!

This hotel is entirely unsafe. They have signs everywhere saying that parties are not permitted, but clearly they cater to the tradie party crowd. I had a group of men in the room next to me going all night. The set up of the place allows for it, essentially there are spread-out clusters of rooms that all open onto the... More

We originally had booked into the YAMBIL INN, but upon our arrival there we found the rooms had only just that day be painted. My wife has breathing problems so unfortunately we could not stay there. Robyn from there then rang the Kidman Wayside Inn to see if there were any vacancies. Two rooms left. Went there and were greeted... More

As we travel to Qld frequently from Victoria we like to stay at Kidman Wayside Inn on our return journey. In the past we have been reasonably happy. However, this stay was not at all enjoyable. Being Monday night the restaurant was closed. Only a few rooms were occupied but we had a family with a crying baby next door.... More

Clean tidy rooms with some space which is always appreciated. Restaurant not open for lunch which is a shame. Walls are a little on the thin side, especially when the Inn has no vacancies. There on business and fulfilled needs.

Want a reasonably priced, high quality accommodation option in Griffith? This is it. I hadn't stayed here before, but this will be my number one pick whenever in Griffith in future. A great Italian restaurant provides prompt and delicious room service options. All round an enjoyable stay.

My first choice for Griffith but can be hard to get into as it is very popular. Can't walk into town but I have a car so this doesn't bother me. Room service choice was good and food is delicious. Park outside your room. Good spot

This is the second time my family and I have stayed here. The Kidman is a large motel situated near central Griffith (literally 300 metres down the road from the Central Mall). The rooms are all very large, well appointed and very clean. In fact, for the price, I doubt you'll find a better hotel/motel in Griffith. Staff are courteous... More

This is a large complex with plenty of accommodation. Reception staff were very pleasant and helpful with directions to local attractions. Rooms were a good size although not as large as others I've stayed at. Unfortunately wifi was not complementary and breakfast included a room service charge of $4 on top of the food cost which I haven't experienced before,... More
