After a long day driving it was the perfect stop for the night. Reasonably priced and with secure parking, it was a great place to relax for the evening. As it turned out, over my 4 days of traveling across the country, it had the most comfortable bed on the whole trip. John the Manager was friendly. Not a lot...

Stayed here 18 years ago and looked to book in to the same place again on this trip. Booked through Wotif for a work trip. Booking was confirmed by Wotif on 18 th of the month and there was 3 available rooms at that time. When I got here the property manager said he didn't have my booking but at...

Hi Ben I am sorry for the trouble you had when you booked on a 2nd party website for our motel. Unfortunately we have no control on knowing when a booking comes through unless booked online and then we receive a notification for the reservation. We have no idea when bookings are made if guests are high profile as you...

This motel is very old and tired but is one of the better ones in Walgett. I thought the room rate of $102.00 was very pricey for what you get but I suppose they have a captured market with only a small number of motels in the town. Had dinner from the local chinese which was very ordinary. The room...

The lady in the office was really nice but that was the only positive. There is limited accommodation in Walgett but even considering that, the room we stayed in is not worth the nightly rate. The rooms are very small, noisy and have thin walls. The car park is crowded and not every room has a parking space. Fine for...

Thank you for your response. I'm glad you had a pleasant experience with staff at our motel. Yes Walgett is an old town in outback NSW. Whist we have made every effort to upgrade our rooms, the existing building was built in the 70's. We have 18 rooms and every room has it's own car space - so every room...

Don't expect anything other than a two star rating. Old dated and definitely not comfortable. Overpriced at around $112 a night is nothing short of highway robbery but excellent locked secure gated environment at least offers peace of mind. Small room was clean. Linen and beds were not acceptable at this price point. The air conditioning is adequate but was...
