Stayed one night, it's budget but it's clean and comfortable the bed linen is of excellent quality ( didn't expect that) even the soap provided was great it actually lathered up! Could do with an update but the owners are lovely and we would definitely stay again.

Stayed here for 3 nights after New Years, reception was extremely helpful, rooms were clean & comfortable. Could do with an update but for the price we were very happy, would stay there again if we are ever back down that way. Rooms were beautifully dark which was good for us as we are into photography so we had late... More

Sitting here writing my review with the noisy cars passing my window on the Pacific Highway. Very used and old furnishings. Very old and tired bathroom. The floor could use a sweep in the bathroom especially behind the door but hey, budget price, budget hotel. It's very easy to find. The air con worked. It's very handy to town and... More

We rode up the Princes Highway, entered the 50 km/h area and the Farnboro Motel slipped into view as we travelled past. A quick U-Turn had us there. The room was brilliant. Big tv, lots of tea making stuff, a good jug of fresh milk from the host and clean fresh beds. There was no meal service, or a restaurant... More

Spent four days in Narooma recently as part of a car group get together, and while it reinforced to me that the south coast of New South Wales is a fantastic place to visit, this little motel stood out as worth mentioning. The motel is an older style smaller motel, but don't let that put you off, as it is... More

Once a year a group of Lotus 7 Clubman enthusiasts run a national Clubman roundup in various locations around the country. This year it was held at Narooma and the majority of the group stayed at the Farnboro Motel (others stayed elsewhere as the majority of our group filled all the rooms). We were greeted by Michael (another Lotus 7... More

We booked into the motel with a group of friends sight unseen, and the first impression was that the motel was going to be dated and noisy. However we were wrong......once we'd checked in we found the owners fantastically friendly, the rooms very clean, tidy and well equipped. Sure the décor was a bit dated but in great condition, clean... More

I stayed at the Farnboro for several evenings in March. Michael and his family were friendly, gracious and helpful hosts. He is connected well with local excursion operators, and will help you with arrangements on request. The room and bath were very clean. The WiFi was a little tricky in-room, but I believe this is being upgraded. (What do you... More

Michael, Rochelle and little Jack welcome you to their motel like you are one of the family. The rooms are clean, bright and it is a very comfortable, relaxing place to be. U stay often when I travel for work and this is certainly my pick on the south coast. Sharon W
