Nice clean room and conveniently located for Sydney/Brisbane run stopover. Very friendly helpful staff. Get there before dark for the kids to have a swim as the pool isn't lit. Ask for a temporary membership card at the club over the road for discounts for dinner.

The rooms and facilities are very basic, but everything was nice and clean and tidy. Our room was lovely and light and airy too, with floor to ceiling windows on the back wall. It was all we needed for a one night stay, when we weren't in the room much at all. We were also very impressed with the pricing...

We stay here when we want just a night or two in Woolgoolga as it is convenient to our friends and family living in the area. This is a good quality 3 - 4 star motel which has everything we need for a short stay. Rooms are spotlessly clean and smell fresh. Rooms are serviced daily. Staff are excellent -...

Spent one night at Diggers, nice big room with great shower. We arrived quite late and didn't have a booking, the reception was shut but a note on the door alerted us to go across the road where we were greeted by helpful and friendly staff. Overall a decent stay for a great price.

We tried to get into a hotel in Coffs Harbour but it was booked out and decided to drive on to Woolgoolgaand found this little place. A great find after a long drive. Nice place, clean, welcoming hosts, and perfect for a night or two's stay.

We tried to check into another local motel, only to be told to come back in a few hours. Tired from a long drive, we tried the Diggers, they let us check in to a "just-cleaned" room straight away. The room was much the same as any motel: clean and basic, but the location was excellent. Close enough to stagger...

We have stayed here several times and it never fails to please. Clean and comfortable with everything you need for a stopover. Greeting is warm and nothing is too troublesome. Will stay again. RSL across road is a great place to eat your evening meal.

We were attending a family dinner at a nearby venue and this hotel was a short 10 minute stroll away. The room was quite large and there was plenty of room for 4 adults. The air conditioner struggled a little to keep the whole room cool, but this was not a big issue. The beds were comfortable and the room...

A good place to take a break when travelling from Sydney to Brisbane as its just off the highway and approximately 6 hours from Sydney. Just across the road a very short walk takes you to the RSL club which is small and friendly plus it serves good meals etc or just down the road there are a few shops...

Located directly across from the Services Club (where you can get a good meal), this is a reasonably priced motel. If you show your room key at the Services Club, you are entitled to a temporary members' card, which gives you a discount on drinks and meals. The rooms are clean and spacious, with tea/coffee provided and breakfast available for...
