We stayed 1 night at Poplars. The beds were comfortable, but we were amazed at the traffic noise from the old Hume Highway - it meant a disturbed nights sleep. The staff were friendly enough, except having advised we would arrive between 9 and 10pm we had to call on arrival and wait (only a few minutes) as the owner... More

On arrival it was dark and cold. It was the very end room at the northern end. It seemed to be a large room but it was cold. An hour later the aircon, an old box style window rattler, was not making any headway into the freezing room. I went to bed, covered up and was disrupted by the start... More

Budget priced accommodation located on old highway at breamar a few kilometres north of mittagong. Not convenient if you want to walk to town or restaurants but taxis are good. Rooms aging but clean with kitchen facilities available.

We had stayed here before, so we knew what to expect. The rooms are a very good size, comfortable, clean and have a great kitchenette (microwave, toaster, kettle, cutlery, dishes). The motel is located in Braemer which is about 4km out of town from Mittagong. The value for money at this motel is ok, as many motels are overpriced in... More

The Poplars is a classic budget motel - a little tired, some superficial evidence of renovation here and there, well-meaning but not particularly happy staff. Don't book expecting to be wowed - book if you just need simple accommodation that is easy to locate.

We had very few options left to book when we decided to do a last minute road trip so we booked Poplars motel. The place itself is pretty good. Clean rooms, great shower, good air-con and parking etc, so all those are plus points. The only negative aspect you should be aware of is the guy at the front desk,... More

I recently stayed at this motel while on a business trip to the Southern Highlands. I had not made a booking but there were rooms available. The prices are very reasonable for this area. On arrival, the owners were friendly and check in was prompt and efficient. I found the room to be quite large and tastefully decorated, with modern... More

I rang this Motel to book a room three weeks in advance of a road trip between Brisbane and Melbourne. In the phone conversation I requested the Motel's disabled room because my wife has balance problems, particularly in the shower. When I arrived, the booking was confirmed and we went to the room we were provided with. On entry, I... More

Poplars is part of the Golden Chain group but is a cut above the GC usual offering. My wife and I were in Mittagong to attend a funeral and stayed overnight. The receptionist was super-friendly and accommodating and supplied a bottle of fresh milk -- a rarity these days. The room was small but beautifully thought out and equipped. The... More
