Five hour road trip, stay overnight in Manilla, hassle free check in hot and powerfull shower took away the road aches.
Off to work in the early morning, back to a clean and comfortable room. Good home cooked evening meal, warm a/c, cold beer fridge and great shower again!. Excellent value and have paid alot more for a lot less.
Highly recommended.

For a small town like Manilla this is very decent accomodation. It delivers a clean, comfortable, and peaceful overnight stay. Check-in and check-out was hassle free and friendly. It is essentially a no frills accomodation, but it delivers what you require, and I would stay there again any day.

As a relatively-frequent traveller to Manilla NSW, I've had the opportunity to stay at all the hotels and the *one* motel in town, many times over a period of more than ten years. The new owners of the Manilla Motel have done lovely things with what was once a fairly run-of-the-mill, 1970s-style motel.

Located one street off the main road through town, the motel is literally within walking distance of everything in Manilla. The town is compact and a walk from one end to the other takes ten minutes or so.

The refurbishment of the motel brings not just new paint and new beds, but brand new (and utterly welcome) reverse-cycle aircon to each room, small flatscreen TVs, new microwaves and a kitchenette and a completely renewed bathroom. In short, everything but the exterior walls are new, clean and sparkling.

The town is wonderfully quiet, even at night, which is incidentally, a great place to go for dark-sky viewing of the heavens! Bring your binoculars and look at the stars!

Manilla Motel offers room service, including breakfast, although the menu is understandably restricted to a few offerings. Reception is attended personally by the owner from 8am to 9:30pm.

The only major feature that's missing from the motel is a pool, but the town's local swimming pool is only a short drive (or walk) up the street.

Rates are reasonable and based on the number of guests in the room. I've always liked the location of the Manilla Motel when I stay in Manilla, but now it's really comfortable too.
