“What a gem!”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

It's not often you find a motel that is a real home away from home - but this is it. Very comfortable beds, microwave, tea & coffee gear, clean & tidy. Good value for money. What more do you really need?

Driving From Adelaide to Hay on a 40 degree day was not fun, so finding my room ready for me with air con on was a perfect end to the day. Comfy bed, small ensuite, tv and a pool on site made this great value for money. Reception was friendly and helpful.

Arrived into Hay at around 1am, no booking, just rang the night phone and was surprised that it was answered so quickly. One of the owners came out to reception, the welcome was so warm even at 1am, she was just lovely. The room was great, the bed was better. We could immediately see that the rooms were clean and well maintained. I will be recommending this hotel to all of my family when they are travel from Sydney down to Adelaide.
Jackie and Jo-anne, you certainly have the right 'make up' to run a motor inn, I wish you all the success.

Room Tip: Any room at this hotel is a great room. Very quite area.

I'd had a long and upsetting drive on a very hot day and the welcome I received by the lovely ladies at reception made me feel so much better. The room was better than expected, spotless, it had been decorated in a really sweet homey style. Bed was comfy, shower was great. I enjoyed a dip in the pool which was well maintained. The microwave was a nice touch, although I didn't need it. And considering I paid $20 more the next night for a dirty, daggy room in Port Pirie the value was excellent. You're on a winner girls, keep it up.

We stayed here for one night, with no prior booking (just drove in) and were greeted with helpful friendly service from minute one.
Everything was clean, beds were comfy and the owner was only too helpful. Knowing we had to leave very early, she helped us by providing breakfast that we could complete, then night before (we just toasted our muffins and made our cereal and drinks). In addition, she was extremely helpful in allowing us to put some things in their freezer that wouldn't fit in the bar-fridge's freezer (she even brought them over to us super-early so we could leave).
The pool looked amazing, I'm only sorry we didn't have time to give it a go!!!
If you're going to Hay, do yourself a favour, stay here!
All in all an A+ experience

New owners Jackie and Jo-anne are the nicest hosts in Hay. Our room was very comfortable and clean. Best part was the lovely hosts who recommended a great spot to eat and looked after our every request. Thankyou girls - see you next time in Hay.

First thing I notice was the smell of bleach. Im glad the place was clean but it needed an air out.

No microwave, felt pretty disappointed knowing that I had to order out because of it. Cheap move from the motel really.

On a good note it was clean.

We take pride in ensuring the rooms are kept nice and clean and comfortable.
In relation to the microwave, we have spare ones available for use from the office.
