We booked this accommodation at the last minute. Our room was towards the back and was very quiet. The rooms are clean and tidy which suited us. Our beds were made while we were out. It had everything we needed, even a toaster!! It was a good stopover to Brisbane.

Stayed here to visit family .. rooms are very basic. Loved the air con as we needed it, but it primarily had the beds and bathroom, that's it. I believe this place would be perfect for stop overs for people to sleep and continue on their journey. But for the price, not worthy of the price paid.

Great place to stop in lovely Bellengin. Rooms are as expected and won't win any style awards but are quiet, very clean and beds comfy, just what you need for an overnight stopover between Brisbane and Syd. Just don't book through Agoda although we'd paid in advance the Agoda payment process between motel and Agoda seems to be complicated and...

Thank you for your lovely review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay! And yes, booking through any secondary website is more complicated than directly through us. We are trying to figure out simpler methods to make these check ins easier for both our guests and staff. Thank you again.

We stayed one night on recommendations from the owner of the tattoo store. The young lady who booked us in was just delightful and very helpful. The room was spotless with everything provided for. Thought it would be a bit noisy but we didn't hear a thing. Unfortunately we didn't get to eat there but the menu looked delicious. We...

Had a couple of nights here and found it very comfortable and convenient. Bed was good, room clean, good shower, air conditioning and handy parking out the back. Didn't eat hear but menu looked good, nice outdoor verandah for a drink. Was a little expensive though so would look around

Diggers Tavern is value for money, clean and neat. We stayed in room no. 10. It was spacious and light. TV, air con, tea and coffee things, a fridge - everything you need. The young lady behind the bar was very welcoming. Checked us in quickly and gave us some useful information about Bellingen. Highly recommend.

We stayed here during a week night and although it was dark when we arrived and we had a bit of difficulty locating the rear entrance we eventually found our way in. The rooms were very clean. We looked at eating at the bistro but it was in the middle of the bar so we gave it a miss. We...

This was a good place to stay, very clean and quiet. Also reasonably priced. Our only problem was we locked ourselves out on Sunday morning and took a bit to get back in again as the place was well locked up. It's location right in town is a bonus, as you can walk everywhere.
