I want to preface this review noting that I have been a field sales rep for 15 years and have travelled all over regional NSW. I know what to expect when staying at a country motel. This motel is VERY run down. Rusted chairs, rattling air conditioner, restaurant closed down, staff sitting around smoking out the front of the rooms. However the reason for my review is the fact I left with bed bug bites all over my body and when I notified the owner the following day, they basically called me a liar and said I must have had an allergic reaction to something. Such an unprofessional way to deal with a with a customer. Accommodation is sparse in Bega, however, I highly recommend driving a bit further to stay anywhere but here.

Booked into the Bega Downs for an overnight stay after a long day on the road. Tidy rooms, friendly staff and a very peaceful night's sleep. We'd definitely stay here again on our next trip. A quiet town in the evening with a few options to eat out.

The room was larger than we expected. The bathroom was newly renovated, and everything was as expected. The only real trouble we had was with the TV. Reception was intermittent; sometimes we lost the picture, sometimes we sound, and sometimes we lost both. The remote often didn't work, and we had to use the buttons on the side of the TV. But otherwise we were happy with our stay.

Two of us stayed here last Saturday night arriving around 6.45pm. We picked up our key from the lock box having received a code to get the key by an sms message. Reception closes at 6pm. Our room, a twin was very clean,(always a big bonus for me) had a great shower and a spa bath as well as a toaster and tea and coffee and biscuits provided. Also a small microwave oven. the air con was not as good as I would have liked , a bit old and struggled to cool our room down but it was a very humid day and night. The motel is neat and tidy and a few blocks from the main street. Its walkable but it was raining so we drove to find something to eat. The motel is not noisy and parking is outside the door of your unit. Our beds were clean and very comfortable. I would stay again- quite impressed how clean it was . .

We overnighted in Bega at Bega downs and it was a great stay. It has everything we were looking for, good location, wonderfully quiet, spotlessly clean, good shower, nice towels and everything we could have wanted in the large room.

Stayed here for 2 nights in February. Family of 4. The room we had was downstairs and was very large. Room was clean, neat and tidy. Bathroom quite large. The shower was nice with good pressure. Beds were comfortable. Staff were friendly. There is a restaurant on site. We didn’t eat there but the menu looked nice.

Bit confused at the rating of this place; we found it great! The only place out of three places we stayed along the coast with a lovely, big and spacious room for 3 adults, and space to put suitcases so you’re not tripping over stuff. Lovely big bathroom, constant hot water, comfortable beds, effective light-blocking curtains. We had to go & get another mug from reception as there was only 2. Ample parking on the property. Lady at the front desk was friendly. For $150 overnight for 3 people this was excellent value!!! Would stay again.

The rooms are very dated and haven't been refreshed in over a decade. This motel is now on our black list of places we'll not be staying at. The restaurant wasn't bad, with quality about equal to that of our local RSL.

I have used this place multiple times when visiting Bega for work related matters. The customer service here is very good, rooms clean and well equipped. They remember you from visit to visit and your preferences. There are rooms upstairs or downstairs and no lift. Beds are comfortable. Road noise is not an issue as the hotel is located centrally in the town and it’s very quiet after hours in Bega They will deliver breakfast to your room via a 2 way hutch or you can purchase a breakfast pack from reception to serve yourself They serve meals on site Mon to Sat and the meals there are really good with a chef who will have a bit of a chat! A pleasant, comfortable and easy place to stay.
