We tried to check into another local motel, only to be told to come back in a few hours. Tired from a long drive, we tried the Diggers, they let us check in to a "just-cleaned" room straight away. The room was much the same as any motel: clean and basic, but the location was excellent. Close enough to stagger...

We have stayed here several times and it never fails to please. Clean and comfortable with everything you need for a stopover. Greeting is warm and nothing is too troublesome. Will stay again. RSL across road is a great place to eat your evening meal.

We were attending a family dinner at a nearby venue and this hotel was a short 10 minute stroll away. The room was quite large and there was plenty of room for 4 adults. The air conditioner struggled a little to keep the whole room cool, but this was not a big issue. The beds were comfortable and the room...

A good place to take a break when travelling from Sydney to Brisbane as its just off the highway and approximately 6 hours from Sydney. Just across the road a very short walk takes you to the RSL club which is small and friendly plus it serves good meals etc or just down the road there are a few shops...

Located directly across from the Services Club (where you can get a good meal), this is a reasonably priced motel. If you show your room key at the Services Club, you are entitled to a temporary members' card, which gives you a discount on drinks and meals. The rooms are clean and spacious, with tea/coffee provided and breakfast available for...

We have stayed here several times. The rooms have always been spotlessly clean, very comfortable and the staff very friendly. The room has a sliding door that opens onto a lovely grassed area and you have your own table and chairs just outside your door. The Motel also has a pool.

I stayed here for one night when driving from the Gold Coast to Melbourne. After a late start leaving the Gold Coast, this was as far as we felt like driving. Good choice, the room was a decent size, with very good heating, and a generous sized bathroom. There was a comfortable couch (converts to a bed) in the room...

We stayed here for six nights in a wheelchair accessible room and whilst it's definitely time for an overall facelift, the room was spacious and thoughtfully equipped; spotlessly clean and the service was exceptionally friendly, efficient & helpful. The bathroom was equipped with appropriate grab rails and a very large shower recess as well as a shower chair. I felt...
