Best Western Grand Country Lodge
Ranked #2 of 5 Hotels in Mittagong
Reviewed January 8, 2013

We stayed overnight in this country motel on a sunday night and enjoyed the facilities. The room was larger than expected and well furnished. We chose a room overlooking the back to avoid the noise of the trasffic in front. The room was clean and the bed was just soft enough. he bathroom facilities were also satisfactory. We would happily return.

Stayed here 2 nights as a part of exploring southern highlands. We chosed Mittagong as our base since the Jervis bay area was booked full well advance for the NY holiday season. This hotel is about 1.5 hours drive to Jervis bay area (via Kangaroo valley which is a real scenic drive).

Few very nice Italian restaurants walking distance from the Hotel.

Room itself was very clean and comfortable. Free wi-fi.

We did not try the breakfast - there are plenty options to choose also in Mittagong town area.

The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, once they learned that we are heading to Jervis bay for the day, we immediately received a bundle of information and also a discount voucher to be used for a local boat trip in Jervis.

Free car parking downstairs - if you have lot of luggage and staying on upper floor, it's bit of kerfuffle as there is no elevator so do ask a room in the ground floor if this is problem. Anyhow it's only 2-storey hotel.

This hotel is a good choice when you are having a road trip and wish to explore Kangaroo Valley - Moss Vale - Jervis Bay area, but also gives you a very good value place to stay. This hotel was our last stop before heading to Sydney airport which was about 1hour drive away.

Room Tip: Ask a room not facing to street. If lot of luggage, ask a ground floor room.

Well located, and clean.
No evening meals served, only breakfast.
Town centre was just a 5 min walk away, so no big problem.

I was a bit concerned when I moved a bedside table to plug in a phone charger.
The extension lead that was plugged into the socket was last tested 5 years ago.
Not a big problem if the lead continues to work, but I does make you wonder what else is not up to spec in the Motel?

Room Tip: Not room 17, unless the tagging has been done now. It is on the main road side of the building and...

This was our second stay at this motel. The first time, our room faced the rear of the hotel, and was very quiet. This time our room faced the main street, but we were not disturbed by the weekend traffic. The room was comfortable, clean and well appointed, including mini bar and an in-room safe.The undercover parking was also a plus. Our hosts were friendly and helpful. The motel restaurant serves breakfast only, but there are many restaurants nearby for dinner. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The rooms at the back of the hotel are much quieter.

We stayed at this motel in September. Driving from the mid-north coast to Perisher with our son & daughter & grandson, we wanted to find somewhere nice for a stopver. Mittagong was perfect, only a very short detour off the highway, and the The Grand Country Lodge was perfect for our needs. Friendly and helpful staff, clean and very comfortable rooms, very reasonable rate, undercover parking. The Restaurant looked very inviting, but we did not eat there simply because we wanted to explore Mittagong township that morning before heading off. (Found an incredible German Bakery in the main street that had delicious breakfast and lunches) We will definitely stay here again next time we go skiing.

I stayed one night on a business trip. The motel room was clean and comfortable. The rooms at the front face directly onto the main thoroughfare (NOT the Hume Highway) and traffic starts passing early morning at least during weekdays. If you want a late start, request a room at the rear. There is no restaurant for dinner but plenty of options nearby (an excellent Italian restaurant a few minutes walk away which has charge-back facilities) There is a breakfast room where the choice is excellent and of good quality. Try the home-made bread! The overriding feature of this motel is the friendy and helpful staff. Nothing was too much trouble. A work colleague had stayed the previous night and echoed this sentiment. Will stay there next time I visit the area.

Room Tip: Request a room at the rear if you want to sleep late

We recently had our brother's 50th at Mittagong. We required six rooms and David was my initial contact at reception, he was so friendly and helpful when booking our rooms and went out of his way to accommodate our needs. Upon arrival we met Steve and his wife (the managers) who were delightful....the Motel is so clean throughout and we had everything at our disposal.... thank you Grand Country Lodge for making our weekend so great!
