“Amber- Warm and friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Stayed one night on route to Sidney during May. Room was a good size with a queen bed very comfortable. Well decorated and clean, with air conditioning, fridge and tea/coffee in kitchenette. Bathroom quite good with shower stall and a range of toiletries. This Motor Inn has its own restaurant and bar which saved us from going into the town which is close by. We had a very good meal here, and tried the bar! A cooked breakfast was served in our room. This was a nice quiet and comfortable stay away from traffic noise. The Staff/Owner were very kind and helpful and I would recommend and stay again.

I too got mislead by all the great reviews sadly. It was fine but sleep quality is high on my list as you will have gathered if you read my reviews. Driving long distances on road trips means you need a good nights sleep. Other than that it was a nice clean room with adequate room and met our needs.

What a awesome stay. Rooms were clean. Restaurant was a great surprise. Had a ball with the owners joining us for drinks at the end of the night. The food what can I say awesome. Can't wait to come back again. I highly recommend you check it out.

Mislead by good reviews we booked this sight unseen. Initial impressions were moderated by a very helpful relieving manager. The "updated executive' unit was dated, tired and scruffy making it dificult to see how clean it was. The airconditioner couldn't cope with the cold night even on maximun setting. We asked for an extra heater and this wasa willingly provided. Our disappointment was not mitigated by the low price.

Room Tip: Check the room first. Make sure the airconditioner is effective.

The number of motels in Coonabarabran is remarkable, especially as the town presents rather an ordinary appearance. We stayed at the Amber Court and it was fine: comfortable room, helpful and friendly owners, and useful to have its own bar and restaurant as the offerings in town are few.

Booked this on the back of good reviews thru trip advisor...big mistake.
Gave us a room with used linen and a half cleaned bathroom. New room stank of cats urine, pillows were yellow and smelt like a 1000 humans had wiped their face on them...Air conditioner was all but useless on a cold night...
proprietor offered us a continental breakfast which was nice but by no way offset a terrible stay.

Room Tip: look first.

We had a great stay at this motel over the June long weekend. We stayed in a two room family room that had plenty of space and was clean, comfortable and warm with reverse cycle air conditioning in both rooms. On the Saturday night we had dinner in the motel restaurant. The service was friendly and the food was delicious and at a reasonable price. The chef even made a delicious gluten free entrée that wasn't on the menu. Our steaks were cooked the way we asked and it was a treat to just sit and relax and chat between courses (a dying experience in our fast food age). All in all it was a great place to stay while exploring the Warrumbungles and Pilliga.
