This hotel is actually located at two sites a few doors apart on the highway. Whilst the building where reception is located appears to have the nicer rooms than the building where we were housed a few doors down, when I peered in on passing, the rooms appeared to be fairly similar in style, size and furnishings. Reception was brisk but not rude.

The room was small and cramped. It was worn and whilst not dirty did not appear to be really clean either. I felt a few insect bites during the stay. It contained a queen size bed squashed up against a small sofa, a table and two chairs, and small kitchenette with microwave and bar fridge, an old style TV (remote did not work), cabinet, shower, toilet with leaking cistern hose, and hairdryer. Parking in front of the rooms is tight to say the least especially when 4WDs and small trucks with large trailers still attached, are allowed to park in spaces meant for small cars leaving no room for others to manoeuvre. It was an accident waiting to happen. I couldn’t relax or sleep thinking that our new car would be damaged to the point that I went out in my PJs and moved it away outside.

The hotel’s only saving grace is its artesian bore water filled pool. It is a great temperature and has two jets and two pipes pumping 40 degree water into the pool. This saved having to go and pay to use the Moree public baths for the same effect. There is also a cold water pool next to the artesian one. Shade sails have been placed over the pools to make bathing more pleasurable and sunsafe. These pools are located near reception and the rooms located there. Guests at the other building a few doors down have to walk up a laneway to access these pools. They do however have their own cold water pool located at the other location.

Breakfast was included in the price. This included cereal, toast, yoghurt, juice, tea and coffee. Unfortunately the bread for the toast was mouldy and my partner ate it before noticing. This made him feel unwell for the next two days. Please check the bread and cereal closely before eating it.

Of the 11 hotels we stayed at on this trip to northern NSW and southern Queensland this was the worst. I would not stay here again.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 weeks to take in the healing waters of Moree. We watched the opening and closing ceremony of the 2008Olympics on the big screen in the Chinese restaurant. It has everything, park your car and walk to the onsite Hot Artesian Pool (6am-10pm) and eat at the Chinese restaurant. The Staff are friendly and service is a priority.

We stayed here for one night while driving from Canberra to Brisbane for Christmas. The staff were very friendly, the room was clean and tidy, and the motel was in a handy location.
