Some hotels have a usefulness for one thing or another & this place is no different. The Voyager Motel is located next to Pinegrove Cemetery in western Sydney which lies off the Great Western Hwy about 5 mins down the road from the Blacktown Travelodge & 5 mins from The Holiday Inn Rooty Hill.
This place doesn’t offer much besides being a slightly cheaper alternative to its 2 larger competitors & seemingly only has the benefit of having the advantage of being isolated enough that the hordes of Chinese tourists from tour buses en-route to the Blue Mountains who stay at the previously mentioned places, are completely avoided.
Unfortunately, the Voyager Motel looses much appeal when you start to get hungry & bored because there is no on-site restaurant & no facilities whatsoever, not even an empty pool with green sludge to be disappointed at. You can at least walk the 10mins down the highway past the cemetery entrance to the 24hr service station & buy a sausage roll & slurpee for dinner but then you’d have to walk back.
Interestingly enough, this area of the highway used to be patrolled by large numbers of old & middle-aged prostitutes who serviced the many trucks that use this highway to get to country NSW via Lithgow, the local police has since driven them out of business after years of procrastination, one would suspect the cops were in on the business themselves.
Since the owners have given their motel a rating of 3.5 stars out of 5, you can only guess what it really deserves. A motel should be a cheap place to sleep & have a shower but for $130 a night it is highway robbery. The motel looks fairly new, is in excellent condition but lacks any character & seems like a retirement village, even if you were here with a female friend you would look out of place but obviously your just passing through.
