Reviewed April 20, 2014

We stayed one night on a trip from the New England area. We had booked online and were pleasantly surprised with a spacious, comfortable and very clean room. Good value - the rate was very reasonable considering it was a public holiday. Room had everything we needed including a toaster, microwave and WIFI. There was a sofa lounge and a small table and chairs. The room felt quite bright and airy (not like some motel rooms that feel dark and closed in) with parking right at the door. Handy location - just off the highway but quite quiet. We'll be back!

What a little gem. rated at 3 star should be 4. Its off the highway so clear of all the trucks in the middle of the night. Great spacious rooms clean and functional. Friendly bar area and great food in the restaurant. Sydney Rock Oysters and Angus grain fed beef. What more could you ask for .
The house wine a 2007 Merlot. Could not ask for more after a long drive. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it. The owner/mgr Pete? was a real friendly character. Made you feel welcome.

Owners Pete n Cath are very friendly, have great staff and their restaurant is excellent and well worth a visit. Servings are huge and great value for money. Deserts are lip smacking.
Bar is excellent with prices on par with most in same class.
We will return.

Room Tip: Pre book as can be busy at times.

We stayed at the Colonial Motor Lodge for a night during a trip from Cairns to Sydney. It offers nice, decent sized rooms with free WIFI, the bathroom is a bit small. The Location is quiet and everything is in Walking distance. It was not the cheapest Motel of our trip so given the Price maybe breakfast could have been included.

We had a lovely double room with a very comfortable bed. Not wanting to go out in the car again for dinner we ate at their restaurant and it was a wonderful surprise. Room was lovely and clean with everything that is needed, large shower room. With a fresh breakfast delivered to our room promptly in the morning.

Room Tip: Was great as no steps involved

We had not planned a stopover in Scone but were very pleased with our last minute choice. After a 9 hour drive we just wanted food and a clean room and bed. The restaurant provided a varied menu and presentation of meals was creative and modern. Our room was large enough for a queen and single and even had a microwave oven. Staff were pleasant and helpful and all in all we felt well cared for which is all important for us.
