Convenient location close to CBD with less highway noise than expected. Motel is 1970s style on spacious grounds with ample parking. The Airlie House building, containing the restaurant and guest rooms (upstairs) is a heritage landmark of the town. Rooms are pretty standard; beds comfortable and all fittings are clean and functional. No A/c in upstairs rooms can make for... More

Friendly check in followed by a swim in the nice pool. Rooms are clean and the bed is comfortable. It's worth the money! As well it's great to have a good restaurant at the same place. We had a excellent steak. All in all a very good stay!

Room was clean and adequate. We were not alerted to the fact that ants are prevalent & that foodstuffs should therefore be stowed in the refrigerator. We lost a whole packet of biscuits. The air conditioner dripped water onto the mattress. This was most unpleasant as well as detrimental to sleep. When we finally realised what the problem was, we... More

Very friendly, family operated motel with good location, everything in the town is within walking distance. The motel restaurant must be the best in town, it gatherd local aristocracy night after night, and we enjoyed it as well. We had dinner every night during our stay, and none of those was disappointment. The room was mid-size, but elegantly furnished (according... More

Quaint hotel in a good position. Rooms are nice with a period theme. Needing a little maintenance, but good value for money. Breakfast was great even serving gluten free bread! Scone is a nice town and worthy of a visit. This hotel is in the Main Street but quiet.

This is a most delightful stopover in Scone. We have stayed there a couple of times now and it is now under new management. A delightful family from Germany. As you can imagine it is spotless. The restaurant was excellent, especially the cooked oysters! There is a little road noise but not serious. There is also a much underused swimming... More

I stayed two nights at the Airlie House Motor Inn. The accommodation was booked for me by clients. I agree with other reviewers about the external appearance of the motor inn. Having said that, I believe the current owners have plans in place to make changes. Check in was efficient and friendly as you would expect. As I arrived at... More

We are visitors to Australia and have been on our way from Sydney to Brisbane. We have chosen the New England Highway rather the Pacific Highway because of the scenery and the landscape. Without planning where to stop on our way to Brisbane we came into Scone late afternoon. The motel with the big historic home stead on its property... More

I stayed at this motel for the first time as my usual motel in Scone was booked out. On ringing the motel, I was advised that the only rooms available were singles (double bed with a single bed) for the rate of $125. I booked the room after reading reviews. On arrival, I was told the rate was $135, however,... More
