We have stayed at the Thunderbird several times over the years and always had a very good experience. We stayed in the Cottage, which was perfect for us. We like to walk down the street to the centre of Yass for dinner and it is lovely not to have to use the car. The motel was spotless and the service... More

It certainly is quiet and very comfortable with a beautiful garden view - self contained makes it convenient for families and groups. You may consider trying our restaurant on site which has a wonderful new menu prepared and cooked by our capable new chef Ben. Thank you for... More

We stayed at this motel with our Goldwing Motorbike group for Christmas 2014 and had a wonderful stay. Rooms are tastefully furnished, plenty of extra pillows and blankets if needed and the newly renovated shower was huge! Upon arrival Chris at reception greeted us warmly and granted our request to have a floor room as opposed to being upstairs due... More

nice,clean, comfortable. Stayed there as we had a work function at the club and this hotel is walking distance. Very nice grounds. I would definitely stay at this hotel again. I didn't try the breakfast but others did and were very pleased.

This place was very poor. The bathroom window looked as though it had been used as an access point by someone with the frame & window now being at odds with each other. There were also rust on the lintel! The room felt dirty & tacky to the touch.

Dear Graeme E We were so disappointed to read on line that we did not meet your expectations for your stay at our wonderful motel. Your comments are at odds with many other comments written here.

I've stayed here twice on my way home from Sydney and QLD and the overall value is very good. The staff are friendly and efficient, the rooms are nice and clean and the food from the Ewe N Us restaurant is great. The wi fi worked well and the room i had was well furnished.

We had room 2 (family room) & it was huge, we loved it! Separate toilet it an excellent idea. Large bathroom. The main bed is very small (double maybe?) & a queen or king i think would go down very very well. Free easy access to wifi was much appreciated. Room service is great, quick & an easy option.

Returning home after two weeks in Melbourne I was looking for a restful overnight spot! I arrived exhausted after not being able to find the Motel without making a call! Hint: it is in the Main Street of Yass! Keep driving till you see the sign. As the wonderful receptionist told me " it's the biggest sign in the street"!... More
