Stayed for 6 nights and didn't think once about going anywhere else for food or hospitality. The room, restaurant and general venue is superbly maintained and clean. There is an onsite chef who cooked great meals with plenty of options. What topped off a good experience were the owners Tony and Paul, who made you feel welcome and old fashion service where they remembered your name and actually hung around dinner time to serve and check everything was ok. There is a pool table as well, to have a relaxing chat and game after dinner if you wish. Great place, hopefully can get back there again. Regards, Mark

From the moment we pulled up in the convenient parking we felt like we were being welcomed home. The motel's fresh decor and colours and bright personalities of the staff were just the beginning of our memorable stay at the Darra Motel and Conference Centre. From the ceiling to the carpet and everything in between was clean and crisp in a quiet oasis, we completely forgot about the bustling hub of adventure awaiting us nearby! The menu catered for all but I was particularly impressed by the Darra Dazzler and the range of beers, wines and spirits available at the restaurant bar. Value for money, will definitely stay again!!

Not only were we given a good price but upgraded and placed out the back away from traffic noise. Staff friendly and helpful. Had a good stay and were well looked after. Hope to be back as location is close to family. Easy access to both Centenary and Ipswich Motorways that gets a person to most places. About a 12-15 minute walk to Darra train station or a $7.50 Uber ride. Bakery and service station with takeaway and many goods and nibbles only a few minutes walk away.

Amid all the doom and gloom surrounding this worldwide Corona virus crisis. A big shout out to the owners at the Darra Motel and Conference Centre in Ipswich Qld who graciously accepted the cancellation of our booking due to CMC Rocks being postponed. In a world of increasingly selfish people it was nice to deal with someone who completely understood the situation. Well done. 👏👏👏 We hope to get there one day soon.
