This motel needs some refurbishment but the rooms were quiet and clean - I would stay there again and the plus was that the restaurant is on the premises

I have stayed in this motel about six time snow for two or three days at a time. The accommodation is comfortable, the hosts are friendly, engaging and provide good advice for the local events. The rooms are quiet sizable and always clean. The meals are very good with a good wine and beer selection, if you fancy a quiet evening ale or tale. This is old style country accommodation, there is not the modern extravagances of luxury lavished on and you feel right at home. There's a fridge in every room and basic toaster/jug with the usual complimentary additions.

Room Tip: The local swimming pool is immediately across the road from the motel and is well serviced and clean...

Motel was basic but clean. Lots of room furniture including m/wave, kettle etc. Restaurant closed for dinner on our night but open for breakfast. Grasy spoon breakfast was cooked to order and fine.

Room Tip: No tips since all rooms looked identical.

I stayed one night at this motel in December and have stayed there before. It's positives are that it is off the New England Highway so reducing the problem of truck noise and it has a restaurant. It is also within easy walking distance of the main shopping area and the railway station.

It is rated three and half stars but, like countless motels across Australia, it will need to refurbish its rooms in the next few years to maintain that rating. The furniture and facilities, whilst clean and adequate, are starting to get a little tired. A refurbished bathroom and new furnishings will be needed.

However, the breakfast served in the restaurant was good value for money and the service friendly and helpful.

Recommended for an overnight stopover.

We made a phone booking a few hours before our arrival at 5.00pm. Just as well - it was almost full. Reception staff were friendly and helpful.
Room was spacious and spotlessly clean. We checked out eating options downtown and decided on the motel restaurant. Good food, pleasant and efficient service and a surprisingly good wine list for a motel restaurant.
The motel is off the highway and was relatively quiet. Only noise during the night was a distant goods train.
Would stay there again if we need an overnight stay in the area.
