Excellent service, very clean rooms, convenient off the main, room service, enough room to swing a cat in the bathroom, absolutely fantastic for the ones who have to watch their pennies. Perfect value for money.

Stay here every few months for work. A great and very comfortable stay every time. The rooms have great space and amenities and the beds are always very comfortable. The restaurant has best the meals in town.

I travel though Goondi as a rep every month on average (sometimes more) and always stay at the Jolly Swagman - the service is fantastic, with a very welcoming and home like atmosphere from all staff members from reception to the kitchen and restaurant and management. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable and very quiet. Even without all these great features, the Jolly Swagman is worth staying at for the restaurant alone. Their signature dish, the Goondi Reef (a filet mignon with glorious seafood and a fantastic garlic sauce) is absolutely divine, as are any of the meals on the menu (but I can't go past the reef) and despite the inland location the oysters are second to none.
I'd highly recommend the Jolly Swagman to anyone travelling though Goondi

A return trip staying for two nights on our journey home to Brisbane. The room was spacious and well appointed with a kitchenette, dining table and lounge chair. It had a large bathroom with a spa. We availed ourselves of the room service from the attached restaurant and the food was superb. The grounds and pool areas are second to none with a separated, fenced play area for little kids. The staff and owners were excellent and did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable.

Recently had a one night stay after a long day travelling. I was planning on staying at a motel on the highway but decided on the Jolly Swagman which was definitely a lot quieter, comfortable and my room even had a spa bath. The queen sized bed was amazingly comfortable for a hotel bed. The gentleman at reception was most helpful in finding me a room after I stopped in without a booking. Would I stay there again ... most certainly!

Room Tip: Most rooms should generally be quiet, however those located at the back of the complex are likely to...

Drove from Melbourne staying one night. Desk clerk made us pay for a spa suite when we just wanted a bed for the night. Paid top dollar even with seniors discount. Spoke to clerk in the morning re price paid said that the other rooms were full. Very basic room not worth $122.00 Insects on the floor and dead spiders on the bench in bedroom

Make sure you ask for a basic room or they will put you in an upgrade and make you pay.
