Nicholas Royal Motel
Ranked #6 of 7 Hotels in Hay
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Halfway between Sydney and Adelaide, this motel was booked through Booking.com. Offered free breakfast. Expected to get a continental breakfast, received pick of the menu hot breakfast. Owners very friendly but moving to a better climate (too cold in winter and too hot in summer). Located in centre of Hay right next door to one of the best country pub bistros you would find. All up, nice quiet room with great breakfast, we will return.

Room Tip: Quiet town at night, any room will be okay.

Hi Geoff,
Thanks for taking the time to review the Nicholas Royal Motel, Hay.
Glad you enjoyed the breakfast.
The managers that served you have decided to head back to warmer climate (or cooler in the summer) and bright new managers are taking over in August to continue to the great friendly service as everyone has come to expect at the NRM.
Look forwarding to hosting you again soon.
Kind Regards,
Andrew & Deb Cronin
Owner

Very friendly people, clean, comfy (king size) beds, large rooms, microwave, austar - kids happy. We were very happy we chose this motel to stay the night.

Sure you can probably find something newer, but for what we paid it exceeded expectations. Thanks so much!

(If we stayed again we would not eat next door to this motel, found the lady very unfriendly and the food pretty average for the price)

Stayed here for 2 nights and found the room clean, roomy and comfortable. Rates are reasonable. The managers were so obliging, helpful and friendly. The rooms have a toaster and microwave. The 2 local pubs serve good food. There is lots to see in Hay.

The room I stayed in was refurbished and very pleasant. It was at the rear of the property so was very peaceful. Adequate space, nice hot shower, good comfortable bed and a decent size TV set. Enough power points to fire up my laptop PC. Quiet location in central part of town & easy walking to local eateries.

We decided to book in and stop over for the night as part of our trip across from Sydney to Perth. Prior to booking we weren't sure what to expect but after a full day on the road we were greated with a friendly smile and impressed by the simple yet clean and tidy rooms. The hot breakfast menu was again simple but of qood quality. We went to the pub next door and dined in the Jolly Jumbuck Bistro, the food and service there was also very good. Overall I would say for what seems to be a "low key" accommodation turned out to be very good value for money and would recommend this as a place to rest overnight on your way to Hay.

I think its important to re-review if you re-stay at a hotel and I did this again last week. I needed to travel by road in the opposite direction this time and again made my overnight stay at The Royal Nicholas in Hay.

I didn't have a booking but still got a great room at a great rate. The room was very clean and comfortable and I again had a great nights sleep.

So thanks again to The Royal Nicholas keep up the good work.
