after a very long day driving, i called in to get a room for the night. A smiling friendly face greeted me...not that common these days! The best thing???....the room had a wonderful reclining lounge chair. Perfect after a long day on the road. The bonus of getting free wi fi is terrific. The rooms may be a bit older,... More

We stayed here for one night and found it to be very comfortable and we were happy that our little dog was also welcome. The room rate was very reasonable. The hosts Karen and Geoff are very friendly and helpful. The best thing about our stay were the wonderful meals available. They were delicious and excellently priced and brought to... More

Nice clean and friendly. Half way from mackay to brisbane and a good stop after travelling with kids. Nothing fantastic but covers the need for a bed and rest. A bit noisy up the front as its near the road, minimal meal options

Stayed here a few times on my travel up and down the coast and its quiet, clean and has friendly staff/management. Rooms are pretty basic but have all you need for a quick stopover. Free wifi and a comfortable bed!

Myself and two children PROS: - easy to access and park - impressed by quality and effort to make us feel welcome/comfortable - eg rainwater to drink, free wifi internet in room - dinner was home-cooked, most meals $15 on menu, large size and tasty - Any cosmetic faults were smoothed over by the friendliness and thoughtfulness of the owners...

We had the pleasure of pulling into the Bororen motel as upon speaking to Karen the owner we were welcome to bring our little 13 year old dog with us. As a result the experience with both Geoff and Karen couldn't have been a more welcoming. We stayed on our trip both ways from Mackay to Brisbane and back. The... More

After a long drive with tired eyes, the flashing "Bororen Motel" sign was a welcomed sight. When my husband and I stopped, we were greated by the lovely Karen, who was an absolute dear - no problem was too much. Our room was comfortable and clean and the homemade dinner (that was brought to our room!) we had was delicious.... More

Have stayed here regularly over the last two years. Have watched as the owners Karen and Geoff have made improvements to the Motel to increase guests comfort. They are always so welcoming and friendly nothing is too much trouble for their guests. Will return every time and would recommend this small country Motel to any traveller.

This small roadside motel offers great value to the weary traveller. Our room was neat and clean, with a comfortable queen bed and two singles, that provided all our needs. The linen was extremely clean and crisp, with super fluffy white towels. Plus there is a fully equiped laundry on site, available for use. The new owners Karen and Geof,... More
