Being staying here for years when I visit local relatives. Great location. The rooms are a good size but in need of urgent maintenance. The mattresses are a couple of years past their use by date. Cupboards and fridge are showing their age and the ample bathroom has the same odour it did 10 years ago. All that said its... More

I was on a business trip and I had work materials and running clothes all over the place. it was therefore a great treat to have a big room and a comfortable couch to sit on. I was very impressed with the lovely... More

We find this motel a convenient half way stop on our way to Tweed. We don,t go to the RSL for meals even though it is across the road and go instead to the bowling club up near the town. There is a great little ladies dress shop that seems to import from India in the back street of the... More

Have been stopping at this motel overnight for the last six years on our way to the Sunshine Coast. When we first stayed I had nothing but praise for this establishment but sadly over the years I have seen it fall into a state of disrepair so much that we will be looking for alternative accommodation on our next trip...

This is a great value motel. Very clean and quite with very friendly staff. It is opposite the Returned Services Club and guests get a discount on meals. However, beds were very hard. Would recommend for overnight stay.

We stayed for eleven nights at the Diggers Rest and the staff made us feel so comfortable. The shower was the best I have ever had in a motel and the bathroom nice and roomy. Our son came to visit us and could not get over the size of the room, as well as a breakfast bar there was a... More

We have stayed at this motel a lot. We love the area, it has lovely beaches and relaxed atmosphere. We have family on the Gold Coast so it is a great stopover spot as we travel up and down the coast. The rooms are very basic but clean and everything you need, great value for money. It is situated opposite... More

Check in staff very friendly and helpful. Room dated but clean and spacious. Queen bed and big leather coach. Sliding to door our to veranda which has table and chairs. RSLopposite which gives a discount as they own the motel. Dinner was tasty and a reasonable price. Managed to win a small amount on pokies. Woud stay again.
