This motel is quite comfortable , some rooms can sleep up to 6 if you need it ' The food is all home cooked , so things like steak , sheep shanks etc but it is not a fine dining experience. Everything works well and they do have a pool of sorts, The fare is reasonable in my experience, 120...

Was recently travelling back from further out west and had the pleasure of staying at the Coolibah Motel. I felt the stay was worth a mention on Trip Advisor. The motel is 300m from the centre of town, so an easy walk if you wish to. We decided to have a couple of beers and a steak in the motel....

The place is very comfortable and great for a stop over. The high light for us was the option to visit the bar during the evening and have a meal. Best steak I have had since do not know when. Everything is done by the family owners who are justifiably proud of their achievements.

I stayed here for one night this week and definitely didn't love it. The hotel isn't in the centre of town, so you need to drive to dinner, etc. The rooms have a funny smell but my room was quite spacious. My bed was comfortable and I slept fairly well but did hear all of the trucks pass during the...

Having stayed on an impromptu overnight trip to Blackall unfortunately I cannot recommend this motel. We paid $125 for a twin room and while there wasn't anything specifically wrong with the room it was just expensive for what you got. Reception was passable but mostly closed during our stay. Other than being able to offer us a room and take...

Unbelievable rudeness on check in. Was not offered milk for tea and coffee and when we realised there was non in the fridge office was closed at 7.30pm. Room very small but clean. Not up to standard for the price charged. When we tried to to return the key at 7.45am reception was not open.

It didn't start well as I got no response to an email I sent requesting accommodation and I then had to ring. On check-in was asked what I was quoted ( $125) and for that we got a very tired room that needs updating. We had read previous emails and thought for the price we may have got a refurbished...

We checked in late at night, about 8:30pm. The room was clear and welcoming. Towels were clean, microwave and tea towel were also in good condition. Wifi was secured by a password. Speed and performance was good enough for holiday email but not a business standard wifi. It was also free (unlike another motel were we considered stating.

We had not stayed here before so did not know anything about the motel other than what was on their website. We were welcomed on arrival and directed to our room which had obviously been renovated and was clean and had a queen bed. After traveling for nearly 12 hours we were looking for a nice meal and decided to...

We were happy to leave this motel. Our room, with a king bed, was well below the acceptable standard of cleanliness and finishing - particularly in the bathroom. The shower area was dirty and mouldy while the vanity unit was barely held together. One of our dinners, a well done steak, was badly burnt forcing us to send it back....
