“Excellence exists in NSW country”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2013 via mobile

We booked this hotel with some nervousness, the photos are not great, the brown, flat roof building does not give a good idea of the high quality within. Not five star, but the cleanest neatest three star you will ever find. The rooms are large and well appointed with everything that you could need. The home cooked breakfast is an absolute treat. I think i would revisit for the breakfast alone. The location is perfect, a view of the lake, right next door. The tourist info is opposite and you can easily walk to the pubs and the bowling club for a fair Chinese meal. The hotel is located at the end of the Main Street so shopping and post office are nearby. The owners / managers? should be very proud of what they offer the traveller, we found them friendly, professional and cooperative.
A very comfortable stay for weary travellers visiting the small country town.

Being a typical country motel, the Lachlan has big rooms which are well appointed and clean. The view is great especially in rooms 1 to 7 where you can watch the sunrise over the Lake. Breakfast is very good - I love the bacon and eggs - and the hosts are very friendly and professional. I've been in this motel many times and it's almost like "coming home". I can recommend this motel to everyone. Lake Cargelligo is a nice little town and the best place to stay is at the Lachlan!

I was in Lake Cargelligo on an overnight trip for work.

The room itself was clean and comfy however a bit dated.

Location-wise it's right across from the lake so the view from my room was quite nice. The sunset spectacular.

One gripe I had was that I could hear the nocturnal activities from the couple next door...and again in the morning.

Overall the location and price was a good selling point for me.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2010

Stayed here for one night. There is not much choice for accommodation in Lake, it's the pub or the Lachlan Way motel. Really basic accommodation, but very clean, and typical of a country NSW town motel.

And very cheap!! $75 for single, $85 for double.

Free broadband at the front desk, and free use of the car (the owner throws you the car keys and off you go - no questions asked - that's country hospitality for you!!)

In room TV is good, coffee in room. Shower and bathroom fine.

Heating in the room was very lacking, single bar heater that did nothing. But the bed doona was fine so I made good use of that!

Small air con for summer use.

Great food down the road at the pub.

All in all a very nice, cheap motel with stellar service!

This motel, one of two in small yet serene Lake Cargelligo, is in a pleasant setting close to the lake.

Everything was satisfactory - the rooms and the proprietors' attitude.

At about A$80 for a double, the tariff was reasonable.

We would have no hesitation in returning.
