Having read some good reviews, we decided to overnight here on a trip out west. We arrived around 5.30pm and found the motel easily. Check in was actually elsewhere, a 3 minute walk down the street to the Hotel Canobolas. After a bit of hunting, we found the check in counter and attempted to check in. We were told that... More

This motel has been taken over by another hotel a street away and so reception is a walk away - this is not great after a long day's drive. The room is very basic, it was clean but lacked extras at all- only two pillows- a tiny bathroom and next to the road so noisy . There is no food... More

Getting to Orange late and leaving first thing next day so just wanted something clean and comfortable overnight. This place was fine. Small and a bit worn but very clean and certainly adequate for a couple overnight. Not huge but as well as the double bed there was a table and chairs and fridge. Bathroom was fine and shower was...

Having previously stayed in the motel section of the Occidental, I was only offered a pub style room this time, not wanting to have to re park and search for alternatives, I paid the price for my laziness. The room I got wasa converted pub room, with ensuite - tiny room with a double bed, no bedside tables of reading... More

Food at this hotel is just sensational. Chicken & steaks were massive and cooked to perfection. Service from the bar staff was exceptional. Very friendly bar staff who remembered our order of drinks for 8 people after this first round was purchased. I would stay at this hotel & eat there next time I'm in Orange.

Absolutely amazing food. Massive servings of quality food. We had steaks that were probably 900 grams and of amazing quality for around $30. In Sydney a steak like this would be $50 plus. Great value for money accommodation.

Was looking for a decent motel that was well priced and had 2 beds in the room, and that's exactly what I got. It is a very functional room, very cheap, bathroom is very sparse, heating works well. Check in was very easy and reception was very friendly. Don't expect much, pay very little and you will be happy.

Stayed here two nights, rooms were presented well, bathrooms could use a make over but everything worked so no complaints from me. Linen was clean and new..... So overall it's a good cheap stay for short term budget accommodation. The pub feed was good too.

This motel, even though at the back of a pub, was quiet, well set out and very clean. Even though they weren't asked to make our beds, when we went out for a couple of hours halfway through our 2 night stay, we returned to find the beds made.

First of all, this is not a bad motel. It's just basic. You get what you pay for. I embarked on a motorcycle tour in august 2014, and stayed in many motels during my one month trip. This is the only one I stayed in where there is no microwave, no dryer, no biscuits, no spare pillow, no spare blanket,... More
