Not a bad motel but it is a bit dated and at $120 per night, I'd rate it as average. Rooms are a good size, clean and everything works. So it's practical place to stay for a work trip and gets plenty of workers staying so it can be a little bit noisy first thing in the morning when everyones... More

When I booked I told them that we had a wedding to go to and they were happy for us to arrive early. The check in was very quick and easy. The staff were very helpful. The motel is on the outskirts of Lithgow but very quite. The rooms were fairly modern and comfortable. We had breakfast which was very... More

Everything was in order when we arrived. I booked our accommodation early in April for our October wedding. No complaints except that the rooms seemed a little expensive. Rooms were comfortable and clean.

This is a rather basic but clean and comfortable ma and is motel with a very good attached restaurant, good beds, and efficient checkin. They could have used a better selection of pillows. One wasn't enough and two were too high. Walls were a bit thin but folks go to bed early in Lithgow so maybe not an issue. Use... More

The Zig Zag Motel with 50 rooms was the base for 38 Probians for 4 days in the Lithgow area. Although the motel appears plain on the outside our rooms were modern, well maintained and comfortable. The motel is away from Lithgow's CBD and is quite and peaceful (except for us). Staff under our host Michael were always helpful and... More

Stayed 4 nights with a group of 38. Room was clean and the bedding was warm and cozy. The bar fridge was adequate for our few beers and wine. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful rising to the challenges of a large group. The hot breakfast supplied each morning was adequate and dinner was exceptional, a real surprise with...

Apartment five is where the party was at! Fridge to keep our Bilpin Cider cool, all of the essentials and nice smelling soaps. Lithgow is a very quiet town but has a great pub with some live music on a Saturday in The Court House Hotel. Faultless service at our motel and we could even check out a little later... More

Did not have huge expectations for this regional motel ... But would have no hesitation recommending it for a stay in Lithgow ( which, btw, has much to offer !!!)... The reception was warm and friendly, the restaurant was excellent and the room a tiny bit dated but comfortable and clean. It also has a nice open setting. I thoroughly... More
