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...

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Jenolin caves. So for our 10 yr wedding anniversary we decided to go back and this time stay in this cute little motor inn instead of at the caves. Great choice. This inn delivered beautifully. Tea and coffee provided. Options for room service breakfasts available. Clean room with everything you would need...

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.

Stayed on a Saturday night. part of a larger group at the premises. Motel is 1 street back from the main street.... which is very quiet anyway. The main street is an easy walk. The room we had was a deluxe. There are inter connecting doors, lockable from both rooms. TV screen size does appear to be variable between the...

First time we've stayed at the highlands and pleasantly surprised. Located in a quiet location but only 5" walk to main street. Room was spacious and well maintained, the full size bar fridge was a nice touch.

Stayed for 2 nights in one of their executive rooms and will definitely stay here again next time we're in Oberon. Nicely renovated bathroom - enjoyed the special toiletries; comfortable bed; very effective room heating (especially important when staying in Oberon during winter!); and loved the complimentary macadamia shortbread cookies!

We were meant to stay at the Jenolan cabins but were unable to get there due to road closures with the big snow fall. The nearest town was Oberon and a road was still open. The Highlands Motor Inn was like a beacon in the night. Marcia welcomed us warmly and provided our family with a warm and comfortable room....
