We are always going back and forth from northern NSW to Lake Jindabyne and after checking out Trip Advisor reviews decided we would stay at the Fossickers Way Motel in Bingara. We were very impressed with our superior room for $100.00. It had a huge 50" TV with ALL the Digital TV channels which was the first time we had...

Having never been to Bingara I did the old google search to find a place to stay and found trip advisor with reviews. As some of the reviews were unflattering I insisted on a room inspection upon arrival. The gentleman at the front desk was only too happy to show me the 2 styles of rooms they have and boy...

Have visited Bingara a few times for business and stayed here twice. It does its job but this is a great little town and this is not a great little motel. They try hard but it is pretty ordinary. Last time in Bingara I stayed at The River House. Very good boutique accommodation. Google it. Much more expensive but you...

Bingara Fossickers Way Motel has been in business for over 40 years by catering to our target market’s needs. We do this by offering two distinct styles of accommodation, standard and superior. The standard room starts at $75 and is aimed at the traveller who is getting in late and leaving early. This could be because they are keen to...

The budget rooms are not the flashiest around but the staff are friendly, the sheets were clean, the heating worked and the shower was awesome. If back here on business, would definitely stay here again. I had a look at the superior rooms and they looked nice!

I have to travel this region a lot for work and this is the only motel I look forward to staying at. I have stayed in both their styles of accommodation and found them clean and quiet. The queen rooms are for those who want a little bit more of everything. They have the biggest TV I have ever seen...

Desperates only. Bingara is a beautiful town but this motel does absolutely nothing to compliment it. Lots to do. Golf, bowls, fishing, fossicking, canoeing. Roxy Theatre a must if you appreciate memorabilia. Ample dining venues.

I will break my rule of not responding or negotiating with trippers and simply say ....Just after we secure compensation for malicious damage to property this review appears... coincidence ?

The pet-friendly room has a doggy door opening into a fenced off area outside. Handy when Bingara has arguably the best bakehouse in Australia, the Roxy theatre & cafe, fabulous birdwatching, etc.....

I have just had the best nights sleep in years, which for me is a big deal as I am a fussy sleeper. When I checked in I explained that I can never find a good bed when travelling they are either to soft or too hard. The gentleman who checked me in suggested I go for one of the...

The accommodation in Bingara is in keeping with the town - below average. This is the only motel in town and it is obvious that the owners can't afford any improvements to the 1970s style rooms. Whilst basically clean with good size rooms, everything was worn. The sheets were so thin as to be see through and the kettle was...
