We have stayed at this motel twice now and I have been very impressed with the standard of the property. Each room we stayed in were clean comfortable and quiet and both had a pleasant view from the window. The proprietorship was different each time we stayed but was friendly and helpful both times. My only complaint would be that...

We passed this motel on the way down into Young and had to turn back to take another look. So glad we did. It is fairly expensive but I think host Pierre took pity on a couple of exhausted old travellers and gave us a very reasonable rate for the night. Huge, very comfortable rooms and lovely surroundings. We chose...

Extra large rooms, ver clean and well appointed with a pool area. Manager was really helpful and friendly. We had rooms at the back of the hotel with rear sliding doors opening to a nice view of the neighbouring paddock with lovely, friendly ponies. That outlook is a nice way to start the day! Close to town so no probs...

Check in was easy, the manager is lovely and friendly. Rooms are larger than average highway motels. Parking at the door. Relatively quiet despite being next to the highway. Wifi was fast and free Fresh milk in the fridge, not UHT Room service dinner was excellent - we both had steak, one with diane sauce and the other mushroom. Really...

Have stayed a number of times. Best value in town. Very well appointed, quiet and comfortable. Rooms have extra touches in case you forget things like your toothbrush. Will always recommend it to others visiting Young as they also support the local schools by training VET students in the restaurant.

We had a comfortable one-night stopover at this motel recently, but next time we will go back to the Federation Motor Inn. The irony is that they are similar in standard, but there was just something we felt was missing with Hilltops. The shower over the bath was an average experience. The fact there were no cups for tea/coffee when...

Perfect. I've stayed in a lot of motels and this is by far the best, while very moderately priced. Full range of everything you could need - iron, hairdryer, bathroom amenities, kettle, toaster, fridge, fresh milk for tea and coffee, air conditioner, chair and table - in a spacious room. Quiet surrounds with native birds chirping in the morning. Grassy...

Very roomy Deluxe Twin suite on our way home was excellent. Pierre was very obliging and friendly providing for our every need. A quiet rural setting was much appreciated. 8 of us had a delicious dinner in the restaurant with a top rated choice on the menu. Thank you and we would definitely stay there again.

We stayed here for 2 nights. Our deluxe twin room was very roomy and clean. Tastefully decorated. Modern bathroom. You wouldn't need to bring any toiletries...even a toothbrush/toothpaste and shaving cream/razor!! I imagine it would usually be quiet but due to the Newell Highway being diverted there were a lot of semis going past. Lovely rural location. Definitely worth the...
