We stayed here during a week night and although it was dark when we arrived and we had a bit of difficulty locating the rear entrance we eventually found our way in. The rooms were very clean. We looked at eating at the bistro but it was in the middle of the bar so we gave it a miss. We... More

This was a good place to stay, very clean and quiet. Also reasonably priced. Our only problem was we locked ourselves out on Sunday morning and took a bit to get back in again as the place was well locked up. It's location right in town is a bonus, as you can walk everywhere.

The motel is in a great central location in the heart of Bellingen. Felt very much welcomed in the bar and bistro by the locals and staff. The meal we had at the Bistro was a great hearty meal, exactly what you expect from a small country town! Loved it, would recommend, can't wait to come back!

Just visited there for a drink and meal only to find out the power was out an this side of Bellingen. Unlike the other places this place offered to cook food with gas. They gave us options because of the limitations but good on them for not saying " sorry no power" like the other establishments. The food was great... More

We stayed here overnight after planning to stop in Dorrigo & finding everything was booked out. It was nearly 9:00pm when we arrived in Bellingen and we booked in without seeing the room first as we were tired, hadn't had dinner, and had to leave early the next morning. We were pleasantly surprised. The room was very comfortable, well equipped... More

The Motel is attached to the Pub, so take the side door if you want to avoid some of the drunks in the public bar. The rooms are clean but claustrophobic - no views other than the car park which is next to the bottle shop. You can't park next to your room like most Motels, so be prepared to... More

For a single bloke on the move the room did the job. Big and comfortable with a warm shower and a feeling of oldish but very clean. $100 was fair and did the job. The real winner was the Scotch Fillett steak & peas and carrotts. First class steak - big, tender & cooked to perfection. I will be back
