Was great to be greeted with a smile and great service. Stayed in the queen spa room and was great to unwind in. And even being on the main road had very minimal noise. Highly recommended. And great value for money

Some noise on main road location. More expensive by comparison with others we stayed at on this trip - however it was a King room with spa bath. Very friendly and helpful owners. Well appointed and clean with some special touches. Generous size room. Handy to food outlets.

Very friendly Anne greeted us by name, and was helpful and efficent. The room was the family suite. Its a little older but bright and cheerful. Everything was clean and comfortable. No electric blankets and a light weight doona meant leaving the air con on overnight as it was winter.

We had a lovely stay at the Shearing Shed - Anne and Trevor were so friendly, welcoming and helpful. The room was great - we stayed in one of the two bedroom ones, which worked really well for us. Fabulous location too - there are restaurants and take away places right across the road, with the town centre just a... More

We stayed at the Shearing Shed for one night recently and found it to be a fantastic place to stay. We are a family of six and it can be hard to find accommodation that caters for us, but Anne and Trevor have made some changes to the rooms to accommodate larger families. Very comfortable beds, minimal traffic noise and... More

We stayed 2 nights, great room size, excellent location. Thoughtful touches such as window cleaners for the ice etc. Staff were very helpful, room was clean & warm. Great selection of dvds helped keep the teenagers entertained.

For a small motor inn, the Shearing Shed delivers so much more. We stayed in a Queen + 2 Singles room and it had plenty of space, with warm comfortable beds and a nice clean bathroom. More than that, the staff were really friendly and helpful. They were super happy for a chat but were also efficient. While deciding what... More

We stayed at Shearing Shed with a group of friends on the June long weekend and the managers could not have been more helpful. Rooms were warm (even without using the heating), very spacious and clean. Easy walking distance to a great meal at the RSL and lots of other small restaurants as well. Plenty of off street parking, fresh... More

Great sized rooms, clean and comfortable, with welcoming and very helpful service. Parents had a room to themselves and the main room had enough sleeping room for four kids. Good shower pressure and TVs for both the kids and parents. Also all the beds had electric blankets - very handy for cold weather.

I feel a little conflicted writing this. The managers were awesome, friendly, helpful, everything you want in hotel management. The hotel was let down in a few ways. Some I understand the management could not help, some they could. My first impression of the room was the overwhelming smell of air freshener. I wanted to air the room, but it... More
