He information centre recommended this motel which was good and clean and just out of town which meant eating in the local restaurant. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable to sleep in and seemed to be popular with those people travelling on business. It was good for the one night stay after a long drive.

The rooms are small, the bathroom is very small, but over all clean and tidy. The steak house was one of the worst meals I have eaten, the steak was tough couldn't event cut it with sharp knife. On complaining to staff they brought the eftpos machine to my table and proceeded to charge me $36 I should have ordered...

Stayed here for one night on the way from Melbourne to Sydney. Utilised the pet friendly room which was a wonderful convenience for our family.

Great place to stay in Goulburn. Pet friendly and clean and comfortable. Ask for a room towards the back, bigger and you get a lounge and you can also take your pets. The food w]deom the restaurant was awesome too, very tasty.

The room was very clean and the staff very helpful. We took the dinner/breakfast meal package and that was excellent. The dinner was from a limited menu but the food was good and the cooked breakfast in the morning was huge. I would definitely stay here again.
