The Wallangulla was awesome, from the moment we checked it, it was clear that motel was loved and care for. The spacious room was perfect for mum and I for a few days exploring the opal fields. The pool was amazing and sparkling clean and nice after a hot day exploring.

The room was spacious, however quite dated. For the price it’s ok, linen had a rip in it was also some funky pattern which is a bit uncommon. I prefer linen to be white so you can easily see if it’s clean or not. Fridge door did not seal so fridge was not cold. A/C also struggled overnight to keep the temp down. Room was close to pool which had people swimming in it all night way passed the supposed close time, so that was annoying as it was loud.

We booked our stay at The Wallangulla Motel coinciding with NYE. We were so blessed! Not only were the beds comfortable but clean and perfect for our stay.
Host Carol catered to our every need and really made our stay one that we just won’t forget! Across the road from the ‘Bowlo’ (Bowling Club) we had an extension of hospitality given to us.
Great location. Great atmosphere and a perfect stay in lightening ridge!
Carol, we will return!

My wife and myself recently spent 2 nights in Lightning Ridge and styed at the Wallangulla Motel. Centrally located in the centre of town and within easy walking distance to many of the attractions, shops and restaurants with the bowling club across the road where you can charge back to your room. A clean and tidy property with a nice and comfy bed to bunk down for the night. We were in the Gem Court section of the motel which is the more modern style of room. Would definitely stay here again next time we visit the Ridge

Not expecting 5 star in Lightening Ridge, however still felt let down. The positive is the central location and directly opposite the bowling club (which actually owns the motel). If you sign up as a visitor member for $3 you can receive 10% discount on food, drink and the accommodation, so well worthwhile. And given occupancy levels appear to be nearly at 100% in town, need to book in advance.
Disappointingly the pictures in the promotion of the Motel are from the newer block behind the older existing rooms, which range from number 1-32, so try to obtain a room in the newer wing numbered higher than 32.
Try to also avoid room 8 or 9 as they are located adjacent the breakfast kitchen where they start work early and not quietly. Complimentary wi-fi is solid if in a room located closer to the reception office. Rooms further away do not pick up the signal.
Compare this motel to others around Australia it would rate as average, but in Lightning Ridge I would say was one of the better ones on offer if you pick the newer block to stay in. We had a reasonably comfortable stay and if we returned to Lightening Ridge would consider staying here again.
