We booked this very last minute and Kay was very accommodating and a wonderful host. The room is no frills in style but it's clean with everything you need and the shower is fantastic too. Well priced and perfect location too. Would recommend and come back here again.

Well priced modest older styled rooms which are very clean and well appointed. The real charm of the place lays with the fabulous, good humoured and friendly host who always makes me feel welcome and gives me a laugh. Always a joy to stay here

What a great little place. Spotless clean and with everything we needed ideally situated opposite the Bowls Club. The owners went out of their way to help us and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone visiting Lightning Ridge. Moderately priced top value

The room was small but scrupulously clean, with a good bed. Kay, who was on the desk, was most helpful in all aspects. We found it quiet and...
