“FANTASTIC MOTEL & FANTASTIC STAFF”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

I cant complement the Nicholas Royal & its staff enough. We've stayed there numerous times over the last 5 years and its simply a pleasure each time. Whether it be staying at the motel or at Charlies retreat which is a house set-up for families and pets! It suits our needs perfectly.
The units are clean/tidy and quiet and nothing is ever too much trouble for the staff.
We wouldnt stay anywhere else in Hay!

Room Tip: If travelling with pets, request Charlies Retreat.

Large rooms, clean and comfortable, the motel is very well located in town. We booked at short notice and the staff were excellent, going out of their way to make sure the room was warm for our late arrival.

Stayed July 2013

We stayed here for one night on our way through Hay. The rooms are comfortable, and they are extremely clean, fo which they should be commended! The staff are very friendly and helpful, and we would stay here again based on this. Although the motel is on the highway, it was extremely quiet, and we heard no traffic noise from our room. There is a great restaurant next door, where we ate, and their meals were very enjoyable. Great value accommodation.

The receptionist was very friendly and made us feel welcome. The motel room was basic but comfortable. A little overpriced. This is a 3 star establishment and has no restaurant. A cooked breakfast is included in the room rate and is brought to your room. Convenient location. Great for an overnight stay.

Hi Stephen,
We welcome your feedback.
Just to clarify, we are 3.5 star motel and there is a great restaurant - the Jolly Jumbuck bistro just next door which is very popular.
We pride ourselves on our freshly cooked breakfasts, using local free range eggs, so we look forward to serving you another great breakfast when you return.

I always stay here when travelling out this way for work - The rooms are clean and modern and the staff are very professional with that country friendliness that one comes to expect. Situated in the middle of the main CBD for Hay NSW it if off the road so if you are travelling with family there are plenty of grounds and swimming pool for younger ones and the older ones. The rates are reasonable and what would be expected from this class of motel. Good restaurant next door and others close by

Room Tip: All the rooms are much the same in this motel complex - They are off the street and away from any no...

Having had this motel arranged for us, lovely to see that we would not be disappointed as we were elsewhere. Comfortable, Clean and basically noiseless which were welcome after a long drive. Swimming pool bonus. Would definitely recommend and yes, if I were to be traveling through Hay again would stay here.

Room Tip: swimming pool rather than a fitness center which was clean and tidy and very welcome to use.
