“Oxley Hotel”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

A sucker for Don Bradman. I have been to Bowral 5 times. Everytime I go, I stay at this hotel. Its my preferred destination. The staff and rooms are great. You can order meals. 2 years before I write a review. Stay here as you want to keep this place a favourite to come back to. The best hotel in Bowral.

Room Tip: The best service always.

I have stayed at oxley motel twice over long weekends for work. The first stay was ok, the room gets very cold at night, ( this was during fall) as the door frame fits poorly and lets in a draught. The bathroom setup is strange as the shower is quite claustrophobic. Room 27 had a microwave and fridge, so that is useful if you are working and can't make it to a restaurant.

The second time I stayed in a different room, which had a poorly functioning showerhead - so little shower pressure that I couldn't shower without shivering, forget about washing long hair! I gave up and didn't take a shower the last day. No microwave in this room. During winter, it would be nice to have light feather duvets rather than heavy wool blankets that may/may not have been cleaned regularly. Decor is very dated from the 70's. The whole room feels a bit dusty probably from the old carpet, which can activate your allergies. Service has been friendly.

I've now stayed in southern highlands about 15+ times, as I work there regularly. I would recommend Bowral road B&B for a stopover or weekend. It doesn't cost much more, it has very comfortable beds and is very clean. For a luxury stay, try Ashrowan B&B in Berrima, they even have a self catering cottage which is very cute.

This is an o.k. budget choice for a short stay. Clean rooms, but very dated, with ugly, tired furniture. Bathroom bearable, not more. The heating - right over the bed - was good.

The motel is a bit outside town. Typical Australian country town motel.

We chose to stay at the Oxley because it was close to a friend's place so we could walk back at the end of the night; it was also close to town. I was a bit weary of it as I had stayed in other places in Bowral in the past as this one wasn't recommend to me. I found it to be value for money. The bed was uncomfortable and the bathroom was exceedingly cold but the room as clean and a nice size.

Room Tip: The 'cottage' room is what we had, it is a separate single story block with bay windows and...

This motel provides basic budget accomodation. It is an old motel, which is kept clean & in good repair but is very basic accomodation. It is a little out of town ( maybe 2km) so a car is required for restuarants, coffee etc.

Bowral seemed a worthwhile detour off the Hume Freeway. An excellent country motel, a choice of rooms, we had a deluxe room that was a good sized room and a large comfortable bed. A reasonable price and quiet location.

A good solid country motel experience.

Had a standard room, quiet, clean. The only issue is could do with a bed update, the one I had was a bit worn and firm. But otherwise all good and would stay there again.
