“Very clean nice staff but very basic”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

Needed a wheel chair access room, which was provided. It was clean, but extremely basic. However staff lovely and let my wife stay longer than check out time while I was at a meeting, so hats off to very obliging staff.
If you are looking for something more upmarket you won't find that here. Restaurant closed so had to go into township to eat.

This inn is in a mining town and although my room looked a bit tired it was clean and comfortable with all I needed for my stay. The dining room was lovely and the people were so friendly, especially the lady that greeted us and cooked the tasty home-cooked meals - I can't remember her name. I complimented her on her vegetables, every one was cooked with a bit of imagination, I could have eaten a plateful

I previously stayed here for work on recommendation from a work friend. I stay here a few times on my travels and it is okay. I can't fault the room - it is clean, basic and has everything you need. My main issues are with the restaurant. I have only had 2 experiences 1) there were not enough people in the restaurant for it to open, or 2) There is bus load of tourists so the restaurant is booked out. Also have never been able to get a breakfast here - which when you are down for work is a real issue. I am down the West Coast fortnightly for work and have changed to the Silver Hills motel.

Stayed in disabled room for one night. Parking was tight but parallel to room. Room had two beds and good kitchenette. Bathroom had rails and very low shower stool. Plastic garden chair supplied was appreciated. Staff friendly. Pity, the restaurant didn't have disabled access. Ate in town at Mt Lyell? hotel/motel opposite Empire Hotel - good disabled access, very helpful staff and great food.

Have stayed many times at the Gold Rush and wouldn't stay anywhere else. Reason for the many visits over the last 12 years is because I have been conducting tour groups from N Z to Tasmania and have stayed here enroute to enjoying the Gordon River cruise with World Heritage Cruises. The more than adequate accommodation, the very good home cooked style meals and above all the very friendly welcome and service received from Alice & Rodney just made my job so much easier. Brilliant!!

The motel is rather dated in all ways, but there is nothing else really in this town that is any better. About 800 mts from the middle of town, whch provides for a good nights sleep with little noise. Resteraunt is only open some nights. Rooms were clean but very dated.

Stooped here one night. Resturant not open. management very friendly.
Large room quit dark but clean small kitchen,tea coffee facilities. TV double and single bed , dineing table 2 chairs good size bathroom. You could walk to town but poor pavements(sidewalks) so we drove.. Ate at the Empire hotel food was really good and good selection of wine and beer. Although there are a good few cafes bars in the town.
You must visit the train station its excellent and its museum gives you info of the town and the railway.
