This property is well located on the southern outskirts of Coonabarabran with immediate access to the highway. It is an older style motel with features relective of the 70s era. The rooms are basic but comfy with a small seating area. The highlight would be the good centrally located pool for a swim on those hot days. One note of advice ... WATCH where you step in the garden area as it is a per friendly motel and it would seem that not all the pet owners pick-up after their dogs :(

Dining room closed due to covid, however, kitchen was open and could order a meal to be delivered to the room. We ordered lasagna which came as a very small piece, frozen chips which weren't hot by the time it arrived, mine had frozen vegetables which were not nice to eat and the other had a home made salad which was extremely uninteresting looking. Not worth the $22 each.

Hi. It seems your stay was not as it should be. With the weather being so cold this winter , we have definitely had an issue with keeping room service meals hot during delivery. We have recently addressed this issue with the purchase of fully insulated food safe carry bags. We are sorry your meal was below your expectations and would like to offer you a 10% discount on your next meal if you chose to stay with us again. Thank you Allison Owner
