Stayed at the Bluey a few nights while working in town. It's fun by a lovely elderly couple and they went above and beyond to keep us happy. It's also located across from the bowling club which seems to be one of the better spots in town to get dinner and a few drinks. If you can get a lower... More

Don't be put off by the less than impressive exterior. This motel was budget priced, neat, clean , tidy (although small) rooms. Small kitchenette, as well as guest laundry were very handy also. Our host, Kay, was a very friendly and helpful lady. Internet access (WiFi) was not too good, however, maybe because our room was up the back away... More

We stayed three nights and will definitely stay there again. I suffer from arthritis and can't sleep on a rock hard bed. The bed was very comfortable so I didn't need the roll of foam that I take with me every time I travel. For me having a good night sleep is priceless. The staff are friendly and helpful and... More

After reading some of the reviews of Bluey motel before we went we decided to stay there on our trip to Lightning Ridge. The motel is old and the rooms are small, but everything is neat and spotlessly clean. Lots of little extras were in the room, eg, cutlery, plates, microwave and fridge. The lady , Kay, who owns the... More

This is a small motel on the main street. Its all on one level. The room has a useful kitchenette and fridge. It was compact in size and very clean and tidy. The guest laundry was great to have access to. There were sweet peas growing in the dividers between the outside area and the perfume was lovely.

Thank you for your kind words about Bluey Motel. My husband (the gardener) was thrilled you noticed his sweet peas. More

There are not too many motels to choose from but if you want value and comfort Bluey's is good. The manager is a lovely lady who is very helpful with any advise you might want about Lightning Ridge and the motel is close to the shops and club.

Enjoyed our stay at the Ridge in this small motel. Great location and it was very quiet. Kay has a great personality and is very helpful. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and we particularly enjoyed being able to have more than one cup of tea each from the complimentary tea and coffee included. Will definitely be staying there... More

Centrally located country Motel. Rooms are a bit old fashioned in décor but very clean and our double had more than the basics because it had a kichenette with microwave & toaster. Kay made us feel very welcome. We went around the corner to the IGA for nibbles and ate at the local RSL. Great value for money.

The room was clean, it included everything you would need and expect. The owner, Kay, was very nice. BBQ facilities and extra towels for the bore baths were a great bonus. Great location. Can't complain.

The rooms are small but clean and well appointed, with comfortable beds. The decor is light which helps make the rooms feel larger than they really are. The price is modest and represents excellent value for money. Highly recommended.
