“A little tired”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The room was adequate although a little tired. Unable to open window due to security reasons so had to leave ac on all night to get fresh air. Reception staff could be more friendly. The restaurant was well appointed but expensive for country cooking. An average country motel.

I must say that after reading other reviews, I can understand some frustration. However, it does have 70 odd rooms and if you want an upmarket room, a bargain room or a room with or without a highway view, the motel will cater for u. As for the "concrete" comment. Seriously clutching at straws for criticism. Yes, the decor is out there, but we had a great time. I personally look for cleanliness when I stay in motels. Wasn't disappointed. I have to say this. The Explorers Resaurant is one of the best I have experienced anywhere outside Sydney. Food is sensational and setting is fantastic. Waitresses and chef....brilliant. Top job.

Took an executive spa room which was very clean, comfortable and well maintained, and away from any risk of road noise. The staff were welcoming and helpful and gave good advice on things to see and do. A good restaurant attached made for an effortless, restful overnight stop.

I would not recommend this motel to anyone, especially if one of your party is scared of flying insects. For $111.00 we have the dubious pleasure of sharing our room with multiple flying insects. Going on the number that inhabited our room we should have been paid to stay.

Room Tip: Cannot recommend any

Stayed for 2 nights on the way up to the Gold Coast. We found the staff to be very helpful. The motel is a getting on a bit, but everything is very clean. The pool was also very well maintained and clean.
We had two meal in the restaurant and were very very impressed with the quality of food.
For the money I highly recommend this place.

We stayed here on our way home recently and found the rooms nice. They're very old and a renovation wouldn't hurt but the rooms are very well kept. The cleaning staff clearly spend a lot of time keeping the rooms in tip top shape.

We ordered breakfast which was delivered on-time and was quite tasty and too big for either my partner or I to finish.

If you're looking for a nice, clean and well kept place to stay in Moree I'd definitely recommend here.

If you happen upon this motel, be prepared for a sleepless night as I'm sure the mattresses are as old as the motel. If they sagged any further I would have been sleeping on the floor. The rest of the room was ok but as I stopped their to sleep the rest didn't really matter. I would have got a better nights sleep in my car.

Room Tip: No good rooms as highway noise constant
