Stayed here for one night while driving from Adelaide to Singleton. Near enough to half way so ideally located. Friendly welcome from Lynne and she couldn't do enough to help. Easy to find and very quiet despite being on the main highway. Truck noise was minimal. Only noise came from the resident galahs across the lane as they settled for...

This is a nice small country town. The location is a great place after a reasonable days drive from Adelaide.You are met with a beer or small wine on arrival and this sets the tone. The motel is very clean, modern and the hosts are very friendly and understand the needs of a traveller. The pun next door or the...

Just like other travelers we were headed from Adelaide to Brisbane, this was our first stopover. We were welcomed with a complimentary cold drink, the room was spotless and modern. It was very quiet even though all rooms were booked (only 9 of them I think) We discovered on an evening walk that there is a lot of history packed...

Such a great little motel with wonderful owners/managers who were so helpful with advising on where to eat as it is a very small town. Will always go back if passing by. A very refreshing cold beer provided on arrival, what more could you want!

A very nice motel for a stopover on a trip from Adelaide to Queensland. The proprietors were most welcoming and the rooms were very comfortable. The motel was close to a hotel and service club where meals were reasonable priced..

Have stayed here a couple of times and will always come back if in the area. Rooms are spotless and very comfortable. Very reasonable pricing, but the reason you must stay here is the genuine warmth and service from the second you walk into reception. Do not drive past this motel, come and experience true Aussie hospitality,

We stayed here overnight twice, on our way to and from Queensland, thanks to TA reviews. Everyone from Adelaide stays in Hay, but this is a highly recommended alternative. The rooms are spacious, spotless and modern. Lynne and Frank are friendly, efficient and go the extra mile to ensure their guests are comfortable and happy. As others have said, the...

The first time we have stopped at Goolgowi and stayed at the motor Inn on a friends recommendation. The Motel was spotless and the offer of a drink of beer or wine and 2 delicious muffins free of charge was totally unexpected and a very nice touch which we have never received before on our travels. The owners were friendly...
