“Handy to RSL Club.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

A centrally located motel with a rear access to the RSL Club. Rooms are clean and comfortable and a good size. Friendly and helpful reception staff. Unfortunately wifi is not complementary. Good breakfast menu at reasonable prices.

I stayed here with a group of friends and the room quality is average for this type of motel which is also attached to the RSL club. The tariff is on the high side for the offering and be careful not to be confused with the price which is per person as opposed to the standard Australia offering of a room tariff. The location is quiet and the room is clean and serviceable but very 1980s.

We booked the Queen Executive Room, but were upgraded to the King Room (for no extra cost). The room was very spacious and the bed very comfortable. The bathroom was modern and generous in size.
The quality of the room and linen were excellent. We ordered breakfast to our room which was excellent, toast hot and crisp!! I can highly recommend this motel. I can only suggest that the other negative comments must be rooms that have not been renovated. I asked for a renovated room like in the pictures on the website. I was not disappointed.

Room Tip: Ask for a renovated suite

I stayed here last night for work upon recommendation from a friend and reading reviews on here. I must say i am very disappointed and will not be staying again. Although the hotel is centrally located, all other aspects outweigh this. The room was small with very dated furnishings. The bathroom wasnt cleaned properly, with the hot water in the shower not working properly, and as i was given an interconnecting room i could hear the people in the other room. The room was non smoking however as there were ash trays outside all rooms the smell still drifted into the room even with the door closed.

we stayed here as the wedding we were attending was using this as a pickup point for the courtesy bus they were running out to their reception. we were right on the road in a very small and smelly room. the bathroom had just a washbasin with no benches to put anything on. on seeing the room i was very thankful that i had got another room for my elderly mother and had not all tried to stay in one room. luckily it was a short stay but the price was was high for the quality of the room

We stayed in a family room, very spacious main room and bathroom, nice paintings on the wall. Very clean and modern, motel is 100m from the centre of town, but didn't hear any noise, except the pleasant sound of church bells ringing outside on the Sunday morning. Reception is open till 10pm so if you're arriving late it should be ok.

Room Tip: Half the rooms are up a set of stairs so if this bothers you ask for a ground floor room

We stayed for three nights in a "superior" room on our second use of this motel. The room was excellent compared with the average country Australian motel. Very roomy, good king bed, excellent bath room with lots of space. Quiet, but very close to the main street, shops and eating places. Intend using this for all of our Orange visits. No restaurant, but good access to nearby restaurants.
