Stayed here for an overnight business trip. The motel was like a standard motor inn, with the basics, and not a lot more, and you paid for what you got. I was happy with the choice, although it was a reasonable walk to / from town to get myself something to eat. Good exercise I suppose. Would stay again.

Just needed a bed, toilet and shower, this was just right. Cost was only $82 per night, we thought it was good. Had a nice clean room, bed was comfy, shower was good. TV and coffee/ tea facilities were all there. Air-con worked great too. It's all you need as you go out to see things or visit people, so...

Dirty floors that have never seen a mop, broken bathroom doors, fixed open window in bathroom, rubbish has been swept under a bed including liquid of some sort. This so called family room has no cupboard space and dirty linen on pillows! Thank goodness I bought my own. Manager not available but why bother. You get what you pay for...

I was staying for 3 nights in the start of winter 2016. The room was always clean and tidy, good heating system and convinience parking. Another plus is golf course scenery from my room as I was staying in the back row. I surely will stay in this motel for the next visit.

Was about to give up staying at Muswellbrook but tried this one as a last resort. Very friendly reception, reasonable price. Park-like environment which turned out to be a golf course. Older style with small rooms and bathroom. Open wifi, and fresh milk. Bed adequate, but when you have just driven 800klms you could sleep anywhere. Would recommend this as...

I was impressed with the service I received when I dropped in, tired, to see if a room was available for the night. My room was clean and comfortable and I had a good night's sleep. Despite the room's being at the front, it was quiet. The room was smallish but quite big enough for 1 person. Upgrades are being...

We stayed at the Wayfarer for price only, but still feel we got a little short changed. The rooms are older style but are fairly clean but the receptionist disapeared after we checked in and wasnt sighted again. There obviously are a number of loud mouth miners living there permanantly who sat outside drinking until late, talking loudly and swearing....

Motel was clean and quiet with golf course next door and close to local shops. Staff were really helpful and friendly with outdoor bbq and TV and pool facilities. Single level facilities with garage across the road. Great paths for walking fanatics

We are sorry for the other guests that were noisy and causing you grief. We did not have any phone call or knock on the manager's door till mid night. If we knew, we would have approached those guests to see if they could reduce their noise. We would look into reducing the tap noise. We had given a discount...
