The Railway Motel & Inn
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Norseman
Reviewed January 22, 2014

We were well pleased with our one night stay at this historic establishment. The day was hot so the air conditioning was very welcome. Being able to help ourselves to a continental breakfast early in the morning was convenient allowing us to hit the road whilst most were still in bed. Quaint place, accommodating hosts, comfortable room and value for money.

We stopped by without booking and although we were initially unsure about the hotel you only have to walk into the reception area to realise its fine. We stayed in the two bedroom "flat". We had two bedrooms, a bathroom and sitting area that were all immacutely clean. Both the bedrooms had air con which were needed as it was one of the hottest WA days. Another reviewer has mentioned the linen and I can only agree - the bed was very comfotable and the linen was lovely! The shower was excellent. This hotel will be gorgeous when the owners have finished the renovations.... yes the paint is a bit flaky in places and the wooden floor is ready for a re-sand but really the cleansliness and value make up for this.
We enjoyed the self serve breakfast very early before setting off to Perth.
We would certainly stay again.

Therese the host was a lovely lady who made us feel welcome. The pub is a short walk away and a self serve breakfast (included) when ever you are ready in the morning is a great service, spot on for those traveling early into the Nullarbor. The dining room was interesting and a nice space to read and relax. True, the room was in need of a renovation but it was clean and our little dogs were welcome inside. For an overnight stay we thought it was great value for money.

This place has received some pretty good reviews, but I have to say that I was a little disappointed. Just like the rest of the town, it has seen much better days. Cracked walls and paint both outside and in. Our room was small with nowhere to sit except on the bed. The bed was a bit on the firm side, but I do realise that tastes vary. The linen was lovely. The TV was modern, but had the worst speaker I've ever come across. I reckon my phone would sound better.
The bathroom was pretty much the same size as the bedroom, with a generous spa bath which worked well. An exhaust fan would be a useful addition to the room. Since we needed to hit the road before 5 am, the "help-youself" toast and cereal breakfast was much appreciated.

Therese, Mike & Audrey (the blonde dog) are just the best hosts and they make you very welcome. The Hotel/Motel might be old but it has great atmosphere. The “Donga” apartments are clean, comfortable and VERY affordable. The “Free” help yourself breakfast is a nice touch. The motel is pet friendly, so your dog is also welcome. We will be back. Value for money this is the BEST.
