“What a great meal”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

my partner and i recently went to the Coral-Le restaurant at the Jolly Swagman, Goondiwindi. Les (the owner) greeted us with such a warm welcome and the staff were amazing. I am not one to have a starter but i did and it was worth it, the main meal was amazing, but the best part came at dessert time, Now anyone that knows me will say i never have dessert, nor do i eat cake or have a sweet tooth, Les (in his wisdom) convinced us to try the Sticky Date. Well OMG we could have ordered several more. Thank you Les and staff for an amazing dinner and experience, well worth the trip just for the sticky date alone

We found this establishment to be what we would term "Middle of the Road". Our room was in the older style and dated. The carpet had worn patches. The room was large but did not have a settee. There was a long bench with 3 chairs. The bathroom was large, but the shower did not have a soap dish or anywhere to put soap, shampoo or washer, which was inconvenient. There were holes in the wall where the soap dish had obviously fallen off.
The airconditioning is of the older noisier type, high on the wall which I could not reach but luckily my husband could, and it worked well. There was undercover parking which would be very handy in wet weather. The Motel is a little bit out of town and very quiet. We were provided with fresh milk on arrival.

We stopped here for an overnight stay on a trip from Perth and the accommodation, restaurant and service was very good. The owner was extremely hospitable and welcoming. Choices and quality of food at restaurant was very good as was the wine selection. Definitely stay here again.

Very clean room, friendly and helpful person at reception and plenty of car parking. A perfect stopover on a long road trip. Restaurant attached was also quite good. Meals were of a high standard and the waiter knew his wines. Would stay there again if on the same road.
