4 of us on motorcycles rolled up mid afternoon and the manageress could not have been more helpful.Unfortunately she is fighting with the foreign owners to tidy the motel up up as the restaurant was gutted when we were there and it is a tad run down and showing its age. Fortunately the Nyngan RSL Club was a mere 50...

Can't believe a mgr can be this constantly rude for so long & still have a business to run. Was rude when booking & rude when we turned up. She even had another guest in tears. If I was not with a group I would have left & found elsewhere to stay. No soap in shower, no tap fittings showing...

Most of the previous reviews have been critical of the lady on reception. While it is generally expected that motel staff are pleasant and accommodating when dealing with guests, maybe we travellers need to be a bit more understanding. The guests are not always easy to deal with. Remember the caretaker is usually a one person band, on 24hr call...

The owner was away and the female supposedly looking after things was totally lacking in customer service skills. Her attitude when I rang to book was unfriendly and abrupt. When we arrived at 5:30pm to check in was not in attendance and had to be contacted by mobile phone to be told a key had been left in a room...

How very odd that you did not express your unhappiness and how dissatisfied you where, when you were here and we spoke. I called your mobile to tell you that I had to duck out of the office for 10 mins how far away from arriving were you and that I had left your key in the door , I...

I contacted this motor inn asking for accommodation and was told "don't be ridiculous" and than hung up on. I than rang back cause I couldn't believe what had just happened only to be told that when you get 40 phone calls a day asking for accommodation it gets a bit beyond a joke and than hung up on AGAIN....

This motel is well positioned at the junction of roads to Bourke, Cobar & Narromine. The rooms are quite spacious and well appointed with adequate space for dining in. These a wsimming pool out the front too if the day is hot... and that's most days! However, while there is a large dining-room, when we stayed it was not open...

Agree with previous comments. Cheryl ? Manager/Owner definitely needs a personality transplant. Not sure if she has a twisted sense of humor or is not a happy Kiwi.Either way needs some training in customer service and hospitality. When I had the temerity to ask if there was a toaster available I got shot down in flames and told No because...

Booked several rooms and had the need to vary dates. Manager who attended often made despairing comments as bookings were being attended. On arrival did not appear to know what she was doing. Rooms were clean and tidy. Service was basic, bed not made, no clean towels, just a tidy. Recommend any other motel in town. Pool had no water.

The Outback Motor Inn is really now a workers camp rather than accommodation for the public. It has 48 rooms but 40+ are used for mine and engineering workers for the local mine. The staff were very helpful and the rooms are comfortable but lacking irons, hairdryers and just look tired. The rooms are next to the Main Mitchell Highway...

While the room was clean if not a bit tired it was the attitude of the manager that made this a bad visit. We arrived early to book in and were allocated rooms 1 & 2, which are at the front of the motel near the highway. When we asked if we could be moved we were advised the motel...
