They say spacious and they meant it, even the shower cubicle. What I liked most of all was the cooked breakfast prepared for you personally by the hosts. I would definitely stay here again as it was a very short walk to restaurants clubs and pubs yet far enough off the main highway to be very quiet. Highly recommended.

Perfect Motel for our overnight stopover. Just what we needed after a long drive! The Manager was very helpful organising our late arrival for us. Bed was comfortable, room a great size and terrific shower. Would recommend to friends.

This Motel is very comfortable, very quiet for good nights rest, clean, warming hospitality and we recommend it. We seniors stayed to be near younger family members for Christmas vocation with them. Hubby happy with easy walk to get daily paper! Hosts most helpful.

Great place to stay. Short walk to river but off the highway so no road noise :) lovely clean and comfortable room. Friendly staff. Our family of 5 were very comfortable and would stay there again. Breakfast room was nice and the food was lovely.

Stayed one night with my adult daughter on our drive from Canberra to Brisbane. The twin room was very spacious clean and a great place to relax after a long drive.

This motel is an absolute gem. Everything from the rooms, to the breakfasts (best poached eggs in the southern hemisphere!) to all the staff, were A+. Nothing was too much trouble for Deborah and Alan and we shall be forever grateful for hosting us.

What a find! For a regional motel, the Mandarin is very clean, well maintained and not daggy (no old coloured or floral bedspreads!) The rooms have been refreshed with paint, newish and spacious bathrooms and crisp white bed linen. Breakfast is home cooked and honest - no frills but fresh and good value. The motel is conveniently located, very close... More

Stayed one night on way to Gold Coast. The Mandarin Motel was very clean, huge room, comfortable and very friendly staff. Quiet location and recently renovated. Excellent food at Star Hotel around corner on river.

I rang earlier in the day and requested a double room and was told that was available. After checking in and making our way to the room we found it was a twin room. We decided not to make a fuss about this and, the next morning when I mentioned this, was told that was all that was available. We... More

We are very sorry you didn't enjoy your stay, unfortunately a number of guests booked at the same time as you did and when your booking came in, even though it was booked as a double, we only have two downstairs rooms and the double was already gone. It also happened that on the night you stayed, we had absolutely... More

The motel is exactly as the majority of reviews below - possibly the cleanest motel I have ever had the pleasure of staying in - beds and bathroom were new/spotless. However, there were two things that marred our one night stay. We arrived late with 2 sleeping children and I was keen to check into our family room. I had... More
