Nothing was to much trouble for them and we even got some very helpful local knowledge which was awesome. Keith was always up for a yarn and was such a character with laughs...

The room had a lounge and a small table with two chairs which was big enough for breakfast which was delivered to your room at a time of your asking. The breakfast was well priced...

Stayed 9th December for one night when travelling to Warialda. Check in was prompt and efficient. Unit had undercover parking Table seating and surprisingly a twin recliner couch. Bathroom had been refurbed but water was hot, pressure good with toiletries and fluffy large towels. Queen size bed (appears fairly new) was comfortable. Unit was very quiet with no road noise....

I needed a convenient late night stop en route to a conference. This motel provided friendly service, a comfortable bed and the added bonus of a recliner lounge in the room.
