Arrived in Kangaroo Valley for a family wedding. Family had booked out many rooms at the hotel. We were placed in a room that didn't have enough beds for all guests so we requested a larger room which was organized for us. Room was dirty and had a musky smell. At check out the following morning we were told to... More

Came into Kangaroo Valley late in the afternoon looking for somewhere to stay. The lovely people in the post office directed us to the Pioneer Motel a couple of doors away,almost no one staying on a Thursday night but apparently it can be booked out on weekends. Our room was large, clean and well appointed. The only problem with our... More

Let's be clear- this was quite adequate for a night's sleep. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. However the swallow inhabited car park and unkempt grounds and a general air of neglect did the outside no favours while various minor issues with bathroom fittings reflected a lack of attention. Looks like a place on the brink to me.

During a work assignment in July we spent one night at the Pioneer Motel Kangaroo Valley, we did not have a booking. On walking in we were warmly welcomed and accommodated with a lovely spacious room which was clean. We arrived late and left early. The motel is perfectly situated in the middle of the little town. Would certainly return.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will certainly be returning. I can not fault this place for position, the room we had #9 was wonderful, loved having a table and a mini kitchen, the lounge was comfortable, the a/c was a challenge and would not heat, but after going to reception, we had a lovely young man come and re-...

Never, ever, ever again. This place forgot to service our room, forgot to change the wet towels. When I asked why, the poor excuse from the receptionist was, "I knocked on your door and there was no answer". How could we answer when we were out for the day. The also did not want to help or offer an apology.... More

Stayed for one night with a group of cyclists. Rooms are large and spacious with mini kitchen, and great showers. Outside a little jaded (watch the slippery paths in the rain) and pool could do with cleaning up. Though as it was very wet we wouldn't have swum anyway. Good value for money compared to many other places in Kangaroo... More

“rooms on the ground floor are a good idea if you have heavy luggage - but not a huge problem”

“We had room nine, but I don't think you could choose a bad room. It was too cold to want to swim, the pool is a good size. Choose a ground floor room for no stairs you can dodge stairs all the way to your room, walk straight up the down ramp and then a ramp again up to the rooms, terrific if stairs are an issue. Underground parking”
