En route from Sydney to Coonabarabran. Arrived late after international flight. Owners left key under mat, lights & heater on. Clean, comfortable, quiet despite being near motorway. Could park car outside door. Yummy breakfast in sunny dining room. Minutes drive from great lookouts to Blue Mountains and Katoomba village. Friendly staff.

I had a deluxe queen for myself only as I thought a bigger room would have more chance of being quieter. I have learned that I am more suited to self contained accommodation , but as I was going to be out all day I thought this was value for money. The A/C was very noisy from adjoining rooms and...

Great place. Stayed for one night for business and they were very friendly and extremely helpful in regards to finding restaurants, main streets and a shooing centre. Room was clean and comfortable. Shower was hot but water pressure was poor. Great value and service.

Lovely friendly staff. Rooms dated but really clean and tidy, lovely and warm on a chilly autumn night. We enjoyed a night in with a delivery from dominos pizza - really comfortable rooms with dining table and all the cutlery. Had a great sleep. The breakfast is a must do really reasonable price and absolutely delicious - we had cooked...

This is a traditional "park-at-your-door" motel which has been modernised at some point. The room was spacious, the bed was comfortable, the shower was hot and the pressure was good, and the continental breakfast was great value and excellent quality (including freshly-chopped fruit salad). The whole place has the feel of being well-managed and cared for. The town centre is...

A nice and tidy place to stay. Nothing flash, but had everything we needed. It was a 20 minute walk to town and most of it is flat ground, so a nice easy walk. I found the staff very friendly and welcoming. There was free internet and there was a choice of free DVDs. A nice, clean budget hotel.

We had the family room- one queen and three single beds. Room was very clean and tidy with lots of room to move about. We stayed with two teens and there was ample space. Beds were very comfortable. Very quiet location - perfect for a great nights sleep. We had the breakfast in the dining room which was delicious. Everything...

Stayed as two couples in room 32 & 33. Very clean and comfortable and bathroom which looks new had toiletries and a great powerful shower. The reception staff were really friendly and $10 in a taxi will get you to the town centre. Would recommend as a great value stop off.

quiet and comfortable room, good value for money, very friendly management. Problem with heater quickly resolved. Wifi worked well. TV could not pick up all stations which was frustrating but not a great problem in the end.

Good clean room, friendly staff, free parking outside room, value for money accomodation. A little out of town, but reasonably quiet area. Was a good starting point for our trip to the Jenolan Caves. Acces to the highway is about 100 yards from the hotel driveway.
