“Great Place to Stay”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

We stay there recently and found the motel very clean with good beds.
There was a microwave in the room but no toaster.
We had dinner at the restaurant which was very good with friendly staff.
Would stay there again

The Colonial was exactly what I needed for a week long work related trip in the area. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. The rooms were very comfortable, spacious and kept immaculate by the cleaners. The food was delicious every night. Great chef. And because I left early every day there was always lunch and breakfast put in my room the night before ready to go. I didnt have to worry about anything. I'm looking forward to my next visit.

Stayed March 2014, traveled on business

I was highly impressed by the quality and comfort of the motel. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff provided friendly and excellent service, without being intrusive. The restaurant was excellent, great quality and variety of food with excellent service.
Congratulations Paul and Pat. I certainly will be staying again.

I never thought I would be really impressed by a country motel but this place has proved me wrong. Very clean and nice smelling room with all the little amenities you would expect (eg rogue mosquito follows you into room then zap him with the can of insect spray in room). The motel has a steak house attached and the export grade steak I had (great portion size!!!) was Devine. Customer service both in the motel and restaurant was exceptional and personalised. Highly recommend it and will not stay anywhere else if in West Wyalong.

Very clean and comfortable. The restaurant was a very unexpected surprise. I have a restricted diet and was able to find an amazing, delicious meal on the menu. It was one of the best meals I have had out in a few months. Big thanks to Paul and Pam for a great place to stay.

The first thing we noticed that management were still checking rooms at 7:30 pm as they were letting the guests in.
Air conditioning remote didn't work (yes it did have batteries in it)
No hot water in the showers, when reported it got a very apathetic response.

Management quite often checks rooms more than once a day for our guests comfort..
When advised there was no hot water , Management along with your female companion, immediately entered room to find that there was steaming hot water available.
Your request for a refund was denied. For your comfort may I suggest trying the HOT water tap in future.

Clean,comfortable, reasonably quiet location,Very pleasant reception. restaurant was reconmended by host but meal was average.Hostess was very professional but meal that others said was to die for didnt live up to expectations.But understand its located in the middle of nowhere between Qld and victoria.The other alternates in the same town looked old and ordinary.Might have been a bad night.
