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.

My wife and I stayed for three nights in mid to late January 2015. Our host, Kay, was a lovely lady who was very polite, easy to talk to, and would help with anything if we asked. Our room was cklean, comfortable, and well equipped. The bed and pillows were very comfortable, and it wasn't too hard crashing out after... More

I recently stayed at Bluey Motel for two nights whilst I was on my travels in the outback. The lady who runs it Kay is very friendly and makes you feel at home. It is located on Morilla Street which is the main street and just across the road from the Bowling Club. The motel was very clean inside and... More

I stay frequently at Bluey's for work, however my husband and I just spent 2 fabulous nights at Bluey's and the wonderful Kay. 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.

Normally we would not consider staying at a motel as unprepossessing as the Bluey, but it had good ratings here, so we did. And we were not disappointed. The rooms, while tiny and basic, were clean and comfortable, and Kay, the owner, was pleasant and very helpful. At $96 for the night, it was good value too. All in all,... More

Blueys motel is great value for what you get. The rooms are very clean and the service was extra friendly. The room had everything you would want including a microwave and utensils to eat in if you want. I would highly recommend it!

We booked direct through their own web site. Email response was clear and fast. Hotel was easy to find and excellent location in the middle of town. Walking distance to shops and Supermarket. Club across the street serving meals. Motel is old style building (70's) which fits in with the character of the town. I hope Bluey's is never modernised... More
