We arrived at 8pm with no booking and were warmly welcomed; comfortable bed and room; all very nice including the fresh milk! Thanks Trevor! Karuah is a nice quiet town ensuring a good night's sleep and although we didn't try it there is a 24 hour food place just down the road. We wouldn't hesitate to return to Karuah and... More

We were warmly welcomed by the owner Trevor. Our room was spacious, lovingly decorated and spotlessly clean with lots of thoughtful extras to make our stay very pleasant and comfortable. All this at a very reasonable rate.

We arrived at 10:15 PM without booked a room. The owners were very nice and gave us a room immediatly. The place was very quiet, the room was very clean, with great furnitures, the bed was very comfortable. There were a toaster, a boiler and some coffee or tea in the room, it makes the difference!!! And all that stuff... More

We returned here for a three night stay over easter. The owners are such a lovely couple, nothing is any trouble for them. The rooms are quiet and very clean and beautifully furnished. The price is extremely reasonable. Definetly recommend this place to anyone travelling to Karuah or passing through. There is a courtesy bus supplied by the RSL where... More

I recently overnighted at this motel on my way home as it was recommended by a relative. The owners were very helpful and so nice, the room was spotless and had everything you could need. The location is quiet as it is off the highway. I could not fault it. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone wanting... More

Everything from the October 2009 review is still here, right down to the $85 price and bucket / squeegee next to the car. Loved it, recommended to anyone passing through wanting a quiet night.

We overnighted here to and from Sydney. This motel is really quaint. The owners have done a lovely, tasteful job of doing the place up and providing every comfort you could possbily need, right down to a bucket of water and squeegy beside each car in the morning. Everything was spotlessly clean. Beds were comfortable (not the old beds you... More
