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

Room was bigger than average with queen bed, single bed and couch. Yes it was outdated but for $103 a night it didn't bother me too much. Walls are paper thin however and you... More

We stayed at the Diggers rest as it was a central stop over for Gold Coast. Room very old fashioned, very basic, lounge very uncomfortable, and very very dated. They had attempted some repairs in the bath room over the basin and on the tiles had just stuck a piece of wood. Very unprofessional. We were recommended by reception to... More

We travelled as two couples, notified staff of our impending late arrival on a Friday night, not a problem; both rooms were furnished with a queen bed, a single bed and a lounge. Small table and chairs located outside (under a verandah) accessible through a sliding glass door. Bathroom consisted of shower cubicle, sink and toilet; towels and a couple... More
