We stayed at the Colonial Motor Inn for the night when on a road trip. As we were getting in late after a long day of driving we were happy that the Motor Inn's office hours were until 9.00pm. Although at 1.00pm when on the road we received a call informing us that the staff were leaving and would leave... More

We were out 4wd'ing in Sunny Corner state forest when one of our vehicles began to have some serious mechanical issues late into the day. We managed to get the 4wd back to the road and made the booking from the side of the Great Western Highway as we awaited the tilt tray in some less than desirable weather. I... More

If you are after a half decent service this is not the place for you. We asked for our coffee and milk to be replaced from the previous day and the response was: "sorry my staff don't start until 9am"!!

Great happy and ever helpful staff, intact unbelievably great. Eat here, it's well worth it, huge meal, fresh and cheap. If your staying in winter, call ahead and get the heater switched on, Lithgow is COLD!!!!!! Stay here, it's amazing for the price.

This was a last minute booking, so we took a chance and ended up here and I was very pleasantly surprised. It's your basic motel, clean, spacious, quiet, even though it was along the highway.. If you need a place to sleep for the night, this place will do nicely.

The young guy that is now running it made us feel very welcome - the decor is pretty dated - but the food in the restaurant was very good & well priced. We will be back next year & expect to see some big changes :-)

Just the one night on way to coast for Xmas. Chosen because they said pets welcome on request. So we requested and initially told no but finally agreed. It's OK but nothing special.

Tired and over priced. There were electrical issues with several rooms which we were blamed for. Not a nice experience at all. The managers have no idea how to deal with the public and were far from helpful. I spend a lot of nights in motels and this is with out doubt one of the worst I have ever seen.... More

Management acknowledges an electrical incident occurred, At no time was any guest blamed for any electrical problem. An electrician was called out late at night at which time it was ascertained that a circuit was blown due to excessive power usage. All rooms required checking at which time it was found extra heaters and cooking appliances had been brought into... More
