I stayed at Connells Motel for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere of the room and the closeness to the main town. It is on the Highway but I didn't even notice the road noise which was a bonus. The proprietors are very friendly as well as being very informative. I will definitely choose to stay here on any...

I stayed at Connells Motel from two nights on a recent road trip. Connells is one of the better motels I have had chance to stay in while travelling around Australia. Once inside he rooms could easily be mistaken for a business hotel and offered a comfortable place to sleep. There was ample parking and the added breakfast was a... More

Need to wait a little bit for the check in as the desk is not engaged always the stay was nice and clean. I would be your guest again if I can go there. There's no breakfast but McD is not far away...

Lone female traveller, felt safe. Very clean. Friendly staff. Next to highway but noise didn't bother me, shutters helps to cut down noise. A microwave would have been nice, would use again Under 5 mins to drive to town

We stayed here in a family room on our way through from the Hunter Valley to Melbourne and were pleasantly surprised. Not flash but nice and neat, tidy and clean. No complaints apart from the family room being upstairs but that's no biggie.

A free light breakfast was included in room rate. Optional cooked meals are value. My room was adequate for two and I stayed two nights. Road noise is minimised by the fitting of roller shutter (electric) over main windows a great idea. Road noise can be heard but it didn't effect a nights sleep. Linen is good and bedding just...

Staff very friendly. Room clean, all we needed and a comfortable place to sleep. Will stay there again. Close to surrounding places to see and visit and very good places to eat from close by. Loved the breakfast.

Arrived to friendly helpful staff who reimbursed me for booking for two people instead of one and free continental breakfast as well. It is on the highway which had me worried about noise however with the roller blinds down hardly heard a thing. Jo is a perfect host and very helpful with any queries. Very affordable nice tidy and clean... More

Spent a week there. Room spacious and comfortable and all mod cons provided. Staff couldn't have been more helpful. Guests are very well looked after. Clean and bed very comfortable. Only drawback is early morning road traffic noise. Starts early so if you're a light sleeper pack some earplugs although I can't say it was noisy enough to disturb me.... More

My hubby has stayed a few times at this Motel when he travels on business and has never complained - that's why he returns ! Hubby always wants a cooked breakfast (rather than the continental one provided) and the Manager always makes sure his poached eggs are cooked to perfection - nice and soft ! Big generous hearty breakfast. Walking... More
