We were looking for an overnight stay after a trip from Sydney to Parkes and dropped into this hotel by chance without a booking. They had plenty of rooms available and even advised us that booking via Wotif was the cheaper option! So I say in their foyer and made a booking on my phone and within 5 minutes had our room key!

The accommodation itself was very comfortable and clean with very helpful and friendly staff. It is only just out of the town centre, so we were literally only 3 blocks walk from a lovely pub (Hotel Canobolas) where we spend a nice afternoon.

Back to the hotel for a dip in the pool which was nothing spectacular, but just a regular backyard inground pool which was still a nice touch and was clean and tidy. If you are here with kids, they'll still enjoy it.

The highlight for us was dinner, being off season there were only about 6 people in the restaurant, but the quality of food was fantastic. It far exceeded what we expected from a country motor lodge and it was a credit to the young chefs working there.

We popped in for breakfast and just had a bit of toast and cereal, but the buffet seemed to be the standard hot breakfast food you'd get at most places.

If we are in the area again, we'll most certainly be staying here.

I stayed at the Central Caleula Motor Lodge with my mum on a Tuesday evening in February 2014. We paid $150 for a ground floor room which could sleep four (although there were only two of us).

Our room was around the front of the building making it a little walk from the undercover parking but we didn't mind. The room was stylish, modern and clean as it was when I've stayed here before - it even smelt nice!. There were windows that could be opened for cross-ventilation, although it was hot so we used the air conditioner which worked fabulously!

The bathroom was spotlessly clean with fabulous fittings. The shower was luxurious and perfect for our needs. A great bonus is the huge mirror over the desk in the living area with perfect lighting for doing makeup in the morning.

We ordered room service deserts mid-evening and although they weren't particularly cheap, when we got them they were delicious and looked fabulous.

I have stayed at this motel a few times and will continue to do so on future trips to Orange. It is priced fabulously for the standard of accommodation and the shops are merely meters down the street. The only thing I could pick on would be that the street it's on is pretty busy and it can be difficult to get out of but I just drove down the street a bit and did a U-turn.

Room Tip: The rooms upstairs in the building at the back are much more private.

We had a nice overnight stay at this motel.
Overall, a standard motel which has a few modern touches.
We had a international room which met all the basic needs.
Rooms very clean and helpful staff. Bedrooms are smaller than shown on Internet .
We made use of the pool as the temperature hit 40 degrees. Garden area and pool needs attention but clean enough for a cool down. Breakfast was great, staff polite and helpful . We would recommend and return.

My aunty, mother and I stayed here due to unexpected circumstances. The accommodation itself, (we had a double room) was quite roomy, very clean and the bed was pretty darn comfortable.

The food in the restaurant is excellent value for money.

Majority of the staff were friendly and helpful, although some could possibly touch up on their customer service skills.

All in all, not a bad place to stay.

Room was expensive and disappointing. Very, very small TV, very dark, no cutlery or microwave in kitchen. One advantage........this motel was in easy walking distance to shops, cafes, pubs and Cook Park.
