Room was clean, tidy and very presentable. Loved the well labelled and ample supply of shampoo, conditioner, creams etc. Beautiful history aspect of the Motor in as photo and items displayed. Lovely and quite atmosphere. Only down side was no breakfast provided for Sunday morning.

We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. I do apologise that no Cooked Breakfast was available that Sunday Morning- nothing better than Eggs Benedict smothered in Warm Hollandaise Sauce to start the day! Unfortunately I had a prior appointment that I had to attend, that meant leaving Monto at 6.30am, and I was unable to arrange another...

Accommodation is perfectly comfortable and the owner is very friendly and helpful. Make sure you arrive in time to order a steak at the restaurant. It is outstanding and the meat is is sourced locally.

Very clean and quiet motel style accomodation. Older style accomodation as you would think by the colonial name but my room had a reverse cycle air conditioner which kept the room cool. The rooms are set off the road for a very quiet nights sleep.

New owners Georgie and her Husband are turning this place around! Wonderful hosts who couldn't do enough for us (even adjusted the bed for us!). All of the rooms are currently being revamped and are very good value. Within walking distance of town but why would you? Lovely home cooked meals on site and a bar in the Old Colonial...

We stayed here just recently for work and had a very pleasant stay, staff were lovely, bed was comfy, restaurant was handy and the food was delicious! It was like a home cooked meal! We'll stay here again when we're out that way.

This was our third visit within 12 months. Each time we stay at The Colonial Motel we have enjoyed great hospitality, a clean and comfortable room at an affordable rate and some great meals. Georgia and Warren are so lovely and have a very high standard of customer service.

Some years ago this was a very pleasant country motel to stay at. Subsequent changes in management saw the place go downhill to the stage where the restaurant and bar closed. I'm happy to report that new management has really improved the property. I hope they do well.

Excellent hosts who have just taken over the management rights. Great rooms that are dated but furnished and decorated to modernise. Older style bathrooms but clean. Nice in house bistro that provides huge country style meals including a bar set up to take in the colonial ambience of the building and historical photos and artefacts on display. Would return again...

This was our second visit to The Colonial Motel since Warren & Georgia have taken over. The rooms are clean & comfortable with new air conditioners. The bed was a bit lumpy and hopefully that will be the next thing they will upgrade. The food in the restaurant was excellent and good value. Service very good too.

Thank You for your lovely review- we are so lucky to be set well back from Highway yet so close to the Township. Guests often comment on how quiet the location is. We look forward to welcoming you back on your next trip.
