Just an overnighter to attend a function in the area so location was key. The motel was clean, the rooms well appointed and the staff friendly. Not the most exciting of tourist areas (although I'm probably missing something) but a very reasonable stop over.

Friendly staff at check in and the room was clean and well stocked with tea making facilities and bathroom supplies. It was an over nighter for us on our way up to Katoomba to compete in an event and was a handy location,

My family & I recently stayed at the motel due to sad circumstances. The staff were so friendly the rooms were nice & clean. It is in a great location. The management & staff went away & beyond to help us with whatever we needed. Highly recommended, I would stay here again if the need arises 😊

The kind lady at check in let me sit in the foyer, increased the air conditioning and gave me a glass of iced water. When I feel a little better check in was... More

We thank you for the review. As we were fully booked, we were unable to move the guests to a quieter room. However, the management did respond quickly to the guest's grievances and even though this booking had been made through a booking agent and had already been paid for, contacted the booking agent, arranged for a refund, and waived...

Made a great jumping off point for exploring the mountains. Bed was a bit hard for my tastes, be sure to check the cupboard for softer pillows. The shower was excellent - good pressure and unending hot water.

There were three of us and we stayed in a twin room with one double bed and a single bed. It was a perfect overnight stay and the shower pressure was amazing!! Unfortunately we stayed on the top level and the second level does not receive wifi.
