We stayed for one night in a triple room, on Good Friday. The room was ample big enough for the three of us, as was the bathroom. The rooms are quite tired and in need of an up grade but for an over night stay with comfy beds and clean sheets, it was fine. The staff were friendly and the... More

This is a basic motel but is very clean and well presented for the price. We stayed overnight on our way down the coast. Reception was friendly and accommodating. Walking distance to RSL where we enjoyed a very nice dinner. Would definitely stay there again.

Stayed two nights here. Reasonable rates, clean, quite, friendly helpful staff. Right across the road from the RSl where you can get a good meal. Close to shops and beach. Great place to stay when traveling up the coast. Definitely recommend

Really good value nice brekky and happy friendly people. Have been before and will hopefully use again. Close to most things in town. Good food at RSL and they give you a discount if you tell them you are staying at the motel units.

We stopped for two nights on our way home from the Sunshine Coast. Great family sized motel room. So close to Coffs and the other hidden treasures along the coast. Much cheaper to stay in Woolgoolga than Coffs. On the first morning as we left the room to go out for the day, the cleaner stopped me and asked if... More

This motel is good value if you're stopping in town. Just a short walk from the main street and beach there's also the RSL club opposite for lunch or evening meal. The room is neat and tidy without being fussy. Would stay here again.

Was there 2 nights accompanied my partner on his business trip. Was surprised the motel is clean & has a nice touch of having bench with 2 tall chairs which is good for work station. As the motel is owned by the RSL opposite, dining there will enjoy member price.There is even a pool for those who want to take... More

We often drive from the Gold coast to Newcastle and sydney and have always made Diggers Rest a stopping place to make the overallk trip easier. The staff are an ad fpr Pr. as they are welcoming and obliging in every way. The rooms are clean,air conditioned and spacious. The added bonus is that 50 metres away is the Woolgoolga... More

I chose Woolgoolga over Coffs Harbour as a quieter place to stay, which this motel is. Probably the nicest Motel in Woolgoolga, large room with sitting area/lounge which is a nice change. Check in was Ok but could have been more welcoming compared to other places I stayed at. Opposite and part of the Woolgoolga RSL Club, which surprisingly appears... More

We booked this motel as we had a wedding reception right across the road. After realising how cheap it is a night and reading the bad reviews on here, we weren't expecting much at all, but we were pleasantly surprised. Check in was quick and fuss free, the rooms were spacious and tidy, the bathroom was big, the lounge was... More
