The Weighbridge Motel in Truro is a very pleasant place, from the moment you arrive in the office you can see and feel the homely touch and welcome atmosphere, the owners Sandra and Michael had everything organised even though the booking was made months in advance.
The modernised well-appointed accommodation rooms with on suites are part of the original Inn from the days when it was a coach house and are located on the side to the rear of the main building and the side rooms have two steps up to enter your room. The room had a very comfortable bed with fresh ironed clean pillow cases and sheets and in the on suite towels, face washer, hand towel, bath mat, soap and shampoo. On the table there is a bottle of water, tea and coffee making facilities but with the dining room just a few steps away a hot Coffee or Cappuccino while you have a look at the art work or observing the largest bull ants mounted on the wall.
When it is time to eat a delicious morning breakfast or and evening dinner is a very enjoyable experience. The motel has its own Restaurant and Bar with a variety of beverages and local wine if you so desire. The menu offers good wholesome country meals and are very reasonably priced that will conjure up those treasured memories of your grandmothers’ Sunday dinners, topped off with a delicious dessert of hot apple and rhubarb slice with fresh cream and ice-cream.
Parking and vehicle access is excellent with under cover parking outside the rooms and motion detectors that operate the external lighting at night if you have to get something from your vehicle or returning from an evening walk.
If you have been driving all day the Weighbridge Motel offer great meals hospitality and a good night’s rest, or if you are visiting to experience this beautiful area Truro is a great central point to explore the wine regions and experience the surrounding local towns and discover firsthand the history and harsh environment people faced when the area was first settled and industries developed.
Sandra and Michael have a life time of local knowledge and are very happy to share with you offering information and advice of where to go and what to see.
The Weighbridge Motel is very affordable and comfortable place to stay with spotlessly clean rooms and facilities that is owned and operated by extremely pleasant owners and located in a very beautiful and interesting part of the state.
Room Tip: Room 5 is very quiet and is the furthest from the front of the motel.
