An older style motel with a good value for money comfort. The lady running the motel just makes you feel happier than when you walked in. A good room to stay in for a stop over which is what we were hoping for. Give it a go.

We were very pleasantly surprised when we opened our door to this little motel. Couldn't ask for anything better. Very clean, well equipped kitchen & good bathroom facilities. Host & staff were great. Re-serviced & topped up daily if need be. Would recommend to anyone.

An immaculate room, run by a lovely lady, Kay. It is an older style motel but had a small kitchen, a table and chairs and everything we needed for a comfortable stay. So often in budget motels, you find there is only one chair and you have to take turns, but we also had a small table and chairs outside... More

Friendly helpful owner, Kay. Handy spot in middle of town. Clean. Reasonably priced. Nothing fancy but then again there is nothing fancy about the whole of Lightening Ridge. Its a remote outback town.

The rooms are always clean and fresh and well appointed, the motel is situated centrally to everything you want to see and do in Lightning Ridge. Kay is always delightful and great to have a yarn with,... More

Motel was recommended by a friend and on checking Bluey's on tripadvisor, decided to book for five nights. Was not disappointed, our unit of yesteryear style was clean, comfortable and excellent value. Kay and Ron are great hosts and an asset to "The Ridge", giving great information on things to do and see.
