Reviewed December 16, 2013

Booked in the guy ask us to pay on arrival.We were upstairs, the outdoor stairs were carpeted and pretty dirty. Dead grass and leaves at bottom of stairs. Room looked ordinary but we weren't too fazed until we noticed the bench the microwave was sitting on DIRTY, opened a drawer there was a plastic bag and a clip off a bread bag in there. Went to have a shower there were used shower products sitting on the top of the shower ledge, some were open and used and they looked very old(been there a while). The hairdryer was out of the ark. Towels raggedy and sheets not crisp, pillows flat. Restaurant sign said open weekdays 6pm to 9pm, looked closed,went down and checked at reception, not open until March 2014!! No milk in fridge on arrival(but that's minor). Next morning opened a drawer beside the bed and there was a capsule(medication) in there. Cost $110.00 for that experience....need I say more!!

Close to town the Major Mitchell is certainly handy to everything. The rooms are Ok, typical motel brick walled but clean enough although my room had two disturbing stains on the carpet. Not cheap, $90, not value for money. Reception was friendly, the place seems to be run by European backpackers.

The location was excellent and staff were very helpful. Food ordinary. Has potential with its older fashioned motel rooms which were spacious, fully equipped, clean and comfortable. Free wifi too - fantastic! Bourke is actually a very interesting town too.

Room Tip: Rooms basically the same, but ours had two sleeping areas, plus kitchen and a washroom/wardrobe area...

The usual 3.5 star experience. Clean with all needs met. Yummy breakfast & room service dinner & is a licensed premises so drinks are available. Friendly and helpful staff. Fabulous location. Very reasonable prices for accommodation & food as compared to other motels in town. Totally recommend this motel to anyone travelling the outback!

Don't bother wasting your money. Reception knows nothing, room dark and dinghy, terrible odour in room. When turning back quilt found dried snot under and top of quilt. Then found hairs on pillows and on sheets . When complained there was no response from girl from reception. Save your money and go to the Bourke riverbank motel

Advertises only motel who has a restaurant, it is not open on a Monday, no breakfast is offered. Nice bakery short walk away. Ensure if you want to eat at any of the local restaurants ensure your there by 8pm as they close kitchens down at 830pm. If you miss out then there is always the Roadhouse.
