Only stayed one night. Room was clean, fresh and quiet considering close proximity to highway. Decor was also fresh and modern. Continental breakfast was served in the old house and was more than adequate. Highly recommend.

Arrived at 2:10pm to a locked reception, rang the phone to a answer machine. After some time a person meet us as he walked past and quite rudely asked if we wanted to book in and that they were not open until 3pm.

Refreshing stay in my motel room ( built in the 1960's) that is attached to Airlie House. My room was freshly painted, with very comfortable bedding. The bathroom was spotless, hot water fast and plenty of it. I enjoyed visiting the grand house each morning for my complimentary breakfast, simple but satisfying Continental fare. Beautiful roses everywhere I looked in... More

Country visit ... Good old friendly country service with a smile. Room was good size. Large bathroom ... Great location just at end of the Main Street so easy to take a stroll to the down town street... Would stay again ... Terrific spot

Great place for a short stay or stop over. Motel situated close to the local shops, easy access parking. Continental breakfast was lovely. The room was beautiful, modern furnishings with very comfortable pillows on the bed. The toiletries provided smell amazing, aromatherapy flavoured - ours smelled strongly of lemongrass. The room is limited to tea and coffee making facilities, a... More

We booked this motel on the go as we needed somewhere to crash for the night, however did not realise that the beautiful big old house was NOT the motel. The motel is located adjacent to and is very plain and unremarkable. You get a budget priced motel room which was clean and adequate. On arrival in the late afternoon... More

ON our recent Brisbane to Sydney trip, we required an overnight pit-stop in this area and came across this motel by chance. The owner was pleasant and gave good local advice. The room was more than adequate with everything working and a comfortable bed. The motel is walking distance to the main street shops/hotels and although on the main highway,... More

Stayed here in Feb and found it worthy of a return whilst on transit Sydney to Brisbane this time. Had no complaints last time and certainly none this time.

Stopped overnight at Airlie House on way to Queensland.

Slow check in service, old and dated room decor and furniture. The bed was lumpy and with rock hard pillows to the point that my ears felt bruised waking up every hour. Old and very loud air-conditioning unit which had to be left on all night as it was very cold. Our room was off the highway and the noise... More

I was very alarmed to read this review. On investigations I have found out that this family of 4 was offered a newly refurbished 2-bedroom-family-unit, but they chose to stay in a budget twin room (max cap. of 3), which is not fully refurbished yet, on this busy weekend. All our queen rooms, all family units and half of the... More
