Was travelling up north and needed a break, this was right off the freeway, but so quiet, couldn't hear anything going through. Just got a standard room, which was very comfortable, clean, just nice to relax in. Staff was friendly and helpful, gave us tips on where to eat (pizza across the road was delicious!) Just a good, reliable place...

We had dinner at Lilly's and saw the motel across the road so decided to stay there. The owner was super friendly, we had a great chat with her. The room was very large and clean. One could tell how much effort they do in keeping it tip top!

Room was clean and comfortable. Major concern was the lack of breakfast which I always believed was basic. Signs in room were very negative eg. we welcome pets but cats are not allowed under any circumstances . No meals were available but there was a microwave, a toaster and a jug and a sign saying that no cooking is allowed...

Dear Heather B, thank you for your review. We are happy you did find our rooms clean and comfortable. The one thing I can't understand that if the "not serving breakfast" is a major concern for you, why did you book in with us? We don't advertise meals anywhere. In regards to the signs in the rooms.....are you aware that...

Only stayed one night. Room was very good. Good fittings, good shower-room, very clean. Parking outside of room and a place to sit out. The motel is a short level walk to local shops and the hotel that does good food. Lovely countryside surrounds Gin Gin.

I needed somewhere to park our car plus large tandem trailer - no problem. Nice big room plus excellent updated bathroom. The mid-town location meant we could wander up the main street to the pub for a meal.

We are very lucky to have so much space on site and everything can be parked securely. CCTV is all around the place. Thanks for this great feed back Peter R. We might see you again one day on your travels through Gin Gin. All the best from the Central Motel Team

Booked a one night sleepover by email from UK based on Tripadvisor reviews. All handled quickly and efficiently by Marsha. Room perfectly adequate and the bathroom in particular, everything spotless. Road noise just the occasional 'whoosh' as one of the 9 axle mega trucks went by but not a problem. Would recommend.
