Had the pleasure of staying here for a night on a road trip to Melbourne. It is an older motel with plenty of charm, the rooms are very clean with comfy beds. If you looking for a modern room this is not the place for you, if you want a good place to sleep that is well maintained then stop...

I had the pleasure of staying at this establishment for a week during the 2016 Floods on the western NSW border. Staff are friendly, rooms are nice. I was a bit upset that there was only Continental breakfast available (I like my cooked breakfast)... RSL or Memorial club up the road has a "charge back" system... where they will charge...

It's previously been reported that this motel was like a throwback to the 1970s. Well, I should have believed it. It was like stepping back in time, but not in a good way. The wifi was spotty, and to the contrary to others, I didn't find the guy at the reception to be friendly at all. I had to ask...

The motel is old but quite clean and comfortable. The bed was excellent and linen great. It is very quiet as on a side street off the main roads but still central. The owner was very helpful. There are nice river walks and restaurants nearby in this beautiful country town.

The rooms (and especially bathrooms) are like a throwback to the 1970's. The old wall mounted air-con barely heated the room and was quite loud. The bed was okay, but I kept rolling from the centre of the bed into the two ruts in the bed created by many years of couples sleeping in the bed. Wifi barely works and...

A basic old motel, it was clean and comfortable rather than charming. The street was quiet but easy walking distance to the centre of town. At $105 I did not see where the ‘Econo’ came in. We stayed in better motels for less on this trip up the Newell.

I stayed 1 night on a work trip. Close to amenities, restaurants, pubs, etc. Easy to find and the manager there was very helpful and friendly. Older style accommodation however, nice, quiet and clean for an overnight visit.

place is clean and tidy. Great place to stay and relax after long drive. Shops are within walking distance. Friendly staff .Plenty of parking spaces, I would like to have a hot breakfast, which they don't provide, but café is just down the road.
