It not the most modern place we have stayed in - But was good value for our overnight stay. Service was friendly and efficient We were late arriving and received a courtesy call to ensure they would be open for us when we arrived Would stay again

Stayed here with my family on my way to Perth and it was great. Rooms are old but clean and good for the price, the owner/manager was very friendly and welcoming and there is a pool and bbq area. Take some insect repellent when in Gunnedah I have mosquitoe bites all over me. Would stay here again when passing through

The room was small and the bathroom floor did not look clean. We stayed for 2 nights but would not stay there again. One plus, it was close to town. Perhaps we where just unlucky to get a real budget room. Would have liked to see what other rooms where on offer. Staff friendly. Continental breakfast very basic.

A good little overnighter with a nice pool, and some decent views at times, friendly staff and not a bad breakfast either. Easy walk to the local club, but I don't know why one would bother, better food in other places.

I stayed at the Red Chief as I was passing through on a long road trip. I generally use Wotif to book hotels and the Red Chief was offering the lowest price. The check in was fast and friendly and the room was clean. The location is excellent with just a short walk to the Services Club or the court...

This motel is in desperate need of an upgrade. Wi fi is free but not offered on check in, when I rang reception it was supplied immediately. Carpet seemed dirty and needs cleaning or replacing. Some newer accommodation in Gunnedah is very expensive.

I was in Gunnedah for a business trip The Red Chief was the right price, central location and quiet being off the main highway. Room was basic but ideal for a quick stay. There was a desk which was essential to be able to get some work done. Agree that place could do with an upgrade, but then the price...

I have stayed here several times over recent years. The staff have always been welcoming and helpful. The higher grade rooms are best providing plenty of space and well appointed. The rooms are well kept although some of the furnishings could do with a visit from the upholstery cleaners. Everything about the rooms looks and feels tired. A bit more...

“All rooms are ground floor and basically equal I would think. They do advertise "Budget" rooms so perhaps they are less expensive.”
