“Nice town nice motel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

We have to admit, we have traveled via Goondiwindi many times but never ventured into the actual town. Having had a busy week we decided to stop early and drove into Goondiwindi its self, which we have to say is a really nice little town.
This motel is right in town, which meant no noise from a very busy road at the bypass for the town.
The reception was quick and helpful, the room very large, a queen bed and two singles. Spotlessly clean and our room had a cathedral ceiling which made the room feel even larger. Bed was very comfy, and a nice modern bathroom. The menu was amazing the sort of menu you would expect from motels in the capital cities. The only negative comment was the A/C it was the old style, and built into the wall above a cupboard so no access to the controls is possible, there is just an on off switch by the bathroom door, but the worst thing was it rattled - all night, to the point we had to turn it off and then the room became quite hot. If the motel was to install new modern reverse cycle A/C then this motel would go to the very top of our list of great motels.

Room Tip: Check out the A/C before taking the room to see if it rattles.

Thank you for taking the time to rate our hotel, we are glad you enjoyed not only Goondiwindi but also our hotel facilities.
We are glad you thought our menu was of high standard as that is something that our restaurant team and ourselves are striving for.
You will be pleased to know we were already in the process of organising new A/C units before your stay, so hopefully the next time you travel to Goondiwindi you will find them perfect.

My adult son and I stayed here on a road trip from Brisbane to Melbourne and we wish all motels would be like this one! Quick and easy check in and out, free fast wifi, comfy beds, and then there is the restuarant! When we checked the menu in our room we thought there must be a mistake. The menu is like one we would expect in an upmarket big city restuarant, but no mistake, the Sundowner Restuarant is excellent. Good service, great food, reasonable prices....what more does one need. We recommend this motel for all of you driving between Brisbane and Melbourne.

Room Tip: All of the rooms appear to be away from the main road, so all should be as quiet as the one we staye...

Stayed here with my husband and two teenage children on our way down South. Clean room, friendly service and comfortable queen beds. Great pressure in the shower. Found this motel on Trip Advisor and would definitely recommend this to others for a family stay.

Thank you for your wonderful review of our hotel. We are very excited that you and all of your family enjoyed the facilities which the Town House has to offer. Our shower pressure is something which we often get positive comments on and it is nice to see another one, especially coming from a family. Thank you once again.

Stayed two nights at the Town House Sundowner and will happily repeat the experience in the future. Clean room, robust internet, excellent shower and bathroom, and excellent restaurant. If you enjoy seafood with your pasta, I recommend the seafood spaghetti - nicely done. Lisa is an attentive hostess and was attentive to our smallest requests. The location is excellent and convenient to everything.

Stayed one night on business. Check-in was quick and friendly. They didn't require me to fill in a form - just relied on credit card imprint and my mobile phone number which I gave them on making the booking. No real reason why all motels can't do this.
Chose this motel because of its central location and reasonably upmarket appearance and wasn't disappointed. There are several nearby motels that could be classified as "budget" but this one was comfortably in the 3.5 to 4 star category and value at $108 for the night. Given that motels in western Qld tend to be booked out through the week and regularly charge upwards of $120 this was very reasonable.
Rooms are relatively spacious, beds how I like them (firm but not worn out) and all of the fittings were well maintained. Air conditioner was one of the old style units that could be an issue in the summer. Restaurant looks like it is fairly upmarket, with mains around the $30 mark but there were some cheaper options, especially for room service.
Location is very good, being a two block walk to three of the town's pubs; two of which have a good name for their meals (Victoria and Royal). No real traffic noise here as the highways are diverted around the town. Overall a satisfying stay and will be back next time

Room Tip: tends to be first in best dressed with room allocation and parking. I got an upstairs room which was...

Grant,

Thank you for taking the time to rate our hotel.

We trust you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. On your next visit we will try and assist with a downstairs unit, but we have some guests that enjoy the upstairs units to avoid human traffic walking past their unit.

Regards,
Lisa and David.

In Goondiwindi for one night on business I stayed only the one night. Check in was fast and friendly, room is a good size with good furnishings. The restaurant attached to the motel is priced quite upmarket I only had a soup and desert because I wasn't very hungry. Food was well prepared and service friendly. Overall a great place to stay I would stay here again.

Very friendly service from David and Lisa. Comfortable, clean rooms at a very reasonable rate. Our stay was at the begining of winter and we had more than enough warm bedding. Visited the restaurant attatched for dinner. Excellent meal, would have had more than enough food with just entree and dessert but we were glad we shared a main because it was worth it. David quite happy to expand his expertise at the bar and whipped us up a couple of "fluffy ducks". Excellent!
My daughter is moving to the area and David and Lisa have extended their country hospitality to her if she needs any help settling in. Will be very happy to stay again.
