The room was lovely, well appointed and the bed very comfortable. Nice and quiet in a good location. Great to park our car in front too. Everything we needed for a weekend escape. Would recommend highly!

We chose to stay here on our week trip to Jenolan Caves. It was clean & comfortable; restaurant food was good quality and well presented; staff were very receptive and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. This would be one of the better country motels we've stayed at to date.It's also off the main road and fairly quiet.

Not a bad motel but it is a bit dated and at $120 per night, I'd rate it as average. Rooms are a good size, clean and everything works. So it's practical place to stay for a work trip and gets plenty of workers staying so it can be a little bit noisy first thing in the morning when everyones...

Dear Andrew S, Thank you for staying with us upon your recent trip to Lithgow. Glad to hear you found our motel rooms quite accommodating, well sized and well maintained. I wouldn't label the motel rooms as dated as they have just been refurbished this year, however these new renovations mightn't be to everyone's taste which is perfectly fine. Future...

Everything was in order when we arrived. I booked our accommodation early in April for our October wedding. No complaints except that the rooms seemed a little expensive. Rooms were comfortable and clean.
