The room was comfortable and clean. The meal in the restaurant was well-priced and yummy! Loved the eclectic music and the friendly staff. Loved the location and the views. Close to Bellingen and not too pricey. .

Making our way north we hadn't booked anywhere and starting to find it difficult to find somewhere with a vacancy. Despite being quite busy Philip at Bellingen Valley Lodge was really accommodating. He ensured our room was suitable for our daughter. We didn't arrive until late, he made sure our room was cool for arrival. The room qas spacious and...

We chose to stay at this accommodation because it is close to Bellingen. However, we were very disappointed to realize that it wasn't worth what we paid which was too expensive. Toilet floor was wet when we arrived and there weren't any towels eventhough the staff quickly attended to the matter when we told them. Also window couldn't be closed...

Or should they just say "we don't do breakfast" because this is a silly thing to say. You don't need a "chef" to prepare bacon and eggs or baked beans on toast (we ran a motel for many yeasts, cooked breakfasts everyday, and we're not chefs). The room is a trip into yesteryear. Remember 'mission brown' - it's still there....

Nice quiet location, but room was dated and dark. Bathroom is very old, shower only just ok. Booked as a group, but allocated rooms far apart. Trip hazard outside room, a gutter, is dangerous when arriving after dark, as outside lighting near our room was very dim.

Older style property with small pool. Unfortunately on our visit there was a mix up with our booking (via last minute) and we had booked for 4 people and the room was for three. The hotel was unable to remedy the situation but offered a refund for the 4th person. It meant though that 3 people had to share 1...

Nice place, and great location. Room decor is dated and ours was dusty in places and had an issue with cockroaches. It didn't spoil our stay, and to be fair the proprietor was helpful and did offer us a small discount. Overall though, I would say overpriced for it's current state and compared to other places we have stayed on...

Located just out of town on a hill, this place was quiet stopover on our trip from Canberra to Brisbane. There's plenty of parking; mostly right outside the room, although we left our car and trailer in the main car-park. This seemed secure and away from the main road. Rooms are a reasonable size although they're starting to look a...
