Meant to be a 4 star motel, but has no air con (cooling) - how can it be rated 4 star without this? Had a fan in the wardrobe & a wall mounted fan heater. Updated bathroom - very nice, but rest of room a little outdated re fittings, circa 1980s. Mattress on the way out. And all this for...

Clean and tidy room but paper thin walls and smoke drifting in from smokers next door made it unpleasant. I could hear virtually every word from next door room, plus the plumbing pipes. I also think complementary breakfast should have been included for the price, especially considering people stay mainly to attend weddings in the region and have to go...

Hi Ali, thanks for your response. Glad that you liked the room and the cleanliness. We believe that is a most important part of good motel service. You didn't mention the free wi fi, or that we were able to check you in early, as you requested. There must have been a communication breakdown re the complimentary breakfast, but there...

From the moment we arrived we were impressed. Marcia, on reception was friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and nicely appointed. The bed was comfortable and shower was great. Oberon was our gateway to Jenolan Caves.
