Room was a tad small but well appointed and spotless, equipped with tea and coffee making facilities plus toaster and comfortable bed. Free laundry with washing machine, dryer, ironing board and iron plus washing powder/liquid. Lovely garden with BBQ and gas cooktops. Small fibreglass...

In a central and quiet location, this traditional Aussie motel offers excellent value in a 3+ star establishment. A comfortable bed coupled with a very quiet air conditioning system in a small room with all the trappings (fridge, ironing board, tea/coffee,full channelled TV, fresh milk etc) one would expect is complemented by an excellent and well presented breakfast selection and...

Stopped in for an overnight stay on our way from Brisbane to Orange. Check-in was very efficient, and although we were a little late our host allowed us to order breakfast so that we could get an early start in the morning. Our Queen bed room was as expected with all the usual coffee/tea making facilities etc. Bathroom was spotless...

Selected this motel after seeing Tripadvisor's reviews. Lovely people and the bed was super comfortable. It was in the mid 30's and the A/C worked like a charm. Nice and close to most of everything. We had dinner at the pub which was OK

Nice, clean, reasonably modern motel. All ground floor, parking outside door. Beds newish, aircon and showers fine. Bathroom a bit plastic 70's but clean. Wifi is excellent but might slow down on a busy day. Fridge, no minibar. Queen suite is roomy, with separate sitting area. No microwave. Sound travels through walls a bit too easily.

We always stay at the Orana Windmill Motel on our way to Canberra and back from Toowoomba. The owners are a lovely couple who go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The rooms are the cleanest you will find anywhere. Gilgandra being a small town, places to eat are quite close. The motel is well off the...

Good option for a stop-over. Rooms are small but clean and it is nice to find proper heavy white cotton bedlinen in a motel. Shower a bit 'thin'. Quiet i.e. no real traffic noise. We ate at the Services club which has a pleasant dining area overlooking the green
