Dorrigo, a pleasant town which is very convenient for the Rainforest Centre, has a very limited choice of accommodation. We were not sure what to expect when we booked a twin en suite room at Dorrigo Hotel Motel. The outside of this property looked somewhat run down, as were the corridors. However, while the furnishings in the rooms were old, everything was in good condition and the en suite shower/WC was modern and efficient. The included continental breakfast was satisfactory.
We opted to have dinner at the Twisted Fork Bistro (in the RSL – about 50 yards away), which had opened a few days before our arrival - very nice. We were told about it at the Canopy Cafe at the Rainforest Centre, which is run by the same people. Meals were also on offer in the motel and in a smart restaurant opposite.
