I can't fault this place. The room was impeccably clean and spacious, with everything I required. Nothing is too much trouble, you only have to ask. I could not hear a peep from adjacent rooms. The shower was fabulously hot with great water pressure. Wifi signal very good. I received a very warm welcome and welcome drink from Lynne who was really lovely. It was well received after a long day of driving.

Very impressed. Room was large, very clean and tidy, and many inclusions. Staff very friendly and even provided a drink on arrival. Well back from Highway so very quiet. Suggest you eat at the pub next door … very interesting.

We were glad that we stayed at this country motel in a very small town. Very friendly owner provided free drink on arrival. Room was quite satisfactory, and would recommend anyone staying there. Was very quiet, and room was clean. Could get evening meal at the local pub in close proximity. Owner provided plates and cutlery for us to use for our own breakfast in the morning. Many thanks for your hospitality.

A pleasant and comfortable room in a motel in a country town. The staff were friendly and informative. The hotel and small general store/cafe (where we bought breakfast) were within close walking distance.

Our second visit, while driving from Adelaide to Queensland - and it didn’t disappoint. Rooms are smart, comfortable and immaculately clean. The welcome is warm and the motel great value for money. Highly recommended

We stayed at Lynne and Franks' for two nights whilst visiting family in Goolgowi. I needed a "mobility friendly" bathroom and easy, level room access, and it was perfect. It is the only motel we have ever stayed at ( and we have stayed at many over the years ) where we felt genuinely welcomed on arrival, and actually thanked them personally when we left ! Little things like the refreshments and fly spray were just a added bonus. We'll be going back !!!!!

Stayed here three times now and with no regrets. Good location and a short walk to the pub for a good country meal and at a reasonable price. Don’t get the two motels mixed up as I did. As the Goolgowi Highway Motel is worst than the pits.

While travelling home from S.A. we decided rest before heading on. This place is a gem in the bush, the host couldn't do enough for us and room was spotless. We will happily recommend to anyone looking in the area. Local store behind the Motel opens at 6am and does breakfast if needed. Room came with complimentary beverage and had Toaster, Microwave Oven and Kettle with coffee/tea

So often when travelling remote you get only basic service but this place is exceptional! We are on our way home back to SA and right from phoning up to book until leaving we were treated so well, you cannot fault the service. Complimentary drink on arrival. Clean and very comfortable rooms, lovely shower, quiet aircon and fantastic pub meals next door, what more could you ask for. Highly recommend this place, wel done Lynn.
