“beware of the bedbugs!!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2013

Staff were helpful and friendly. However after staying there for six nights returned home to a MASSIVE attack of bedbug bites. A doctor's visit, adrenaline and hydrocortisone shots, a course of oral cortisone, a truckload of phenergan, a week off work,no sleep, thousands of bites and scabs and more than two weeks later I'm still suffering. Never again.Was planning on informing the owners but would probably have been met with a hostile "where's the proof?' scenario, so it's easier just never stay there again.I'll go back to the Kurri Motor Inn next time. No offence to the owners/staff, it's just that the bedbug bites are DREADFUL and notoriously difficult to eradicate,so I don't like your chances of avoiding them.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2013

the station is a motel attached to a pub in kurri kurri. as i drove in, that was my first concern - noise from the pub. that concern proved unfounded. and in fact the rooms were very quiet. that is to say, they seemed well insulated form any noise outside.

as others have said the reception was closed, necessitating a trip to the bar to retrieve my room key. no big deal there. staff in the bar were very friendly. the bistro was just closing but they very kindly allowed us to order.

the room itself was quite small - a queen and a single. the bathroom though was a good size and the room itself was nicely fitted out. it certainly wasn't the four seasons, but neither was it a shearing shed.

i'm not quite sure this is a "very good" property, but then i thought it deserved better than "average". i was here for work and not looking for frills. this is a motel, so you kind of know what to expect. and with that in mind, the station hotel delivers nicely.

Group of 20 stayed for 2 nights (8 rooms I think) in this renovated hotel. Great location & the friendly staff couldn't do enough for us. Reception was closed when we arrived so we had to go into the bar to get our keys. Was a little intimidating as the bar was full of workman who had just finished work for the day but they were very friendly too. Facilities were good. Flat screen TV with good reception, radio with ipod dock, lots of tea, coffee, sugar & milk - more than most motels. Car parking was good too. Meals in the hotel were great value for money. The only downfall was there was no offer of breakfast the 1st morning. We all trapsed up the hill. They must have realised as on the 2nd day, a cooked breakfast was offered in the bistro.

Nice room although we had a disabled room (not sure why) and shower sprayed water ALL over the bathroom floor. Needed a couple of bath mats to make a dry track.

The room was advertised on ALL websites as having a King Bed and a King Single and when we checked in, it was a Queen bed, a Single and a set of bunks.

If we looked out the window out the back, there is a goat living in the yard next door, which my daughter found amusing.

The dislikes - the Reception was closed (it was only about 2.30pm) and I had to go to "The Bar" to get our keys. I don't like going into "Bars" so this made me a little uncomfortable. Also, the Bistro was closed so the thought of having a "cooked" meal was shot and had to get take away.

Good location though.
