Reviewed 1 week ago

Stayed here for one night on the way from Melbourne to Sydney. Utilised the pet friendly room which was a wonderful convenience for our family. Beautiful modern bathroom, airconditioning was perfect and the bed was incredibly comfortable. A quiet area enabling a great sleep, but still in town. On top of this - how many accommodation businesses email you afterwards...

Great place to stay in Goulburn. Pet friendly and clean and comfortable. Ask for a room towards the back, bigger and you get a lounge and you can also take your pets. The food w]deom the restaurant was awesome too, very tasty.

The room was very clean and the staff very helpful. We took the dinner/breakfast meal package and that was excellent. The dinner was from a limited menu but the food was good and the cooked breakfast in the morning was huge. I would definitely stay here again.

Amy on reception was so friendly, helpful and considerate when we arrived. The room was a reasonable price, clean and modern complete with great bathroom / shower. Only negatives is that out bed dropped in the middle a little and we could hear quite a lot of noise from the adjoining room. In spite of this when considering all aspects...

Nice clean motel in a quiet and convenient location. I travel a lot and stayed here quite a few times. This time I noticed that they have done an entire refurb throughout the whole room, which makes it look modern and fresh. Definitely recommend this motel to other travelers.
