We recently stayed at the Motel Canobolas - after finding it. The address does not match its location. The site was partly a construction zone with materials laying about and workmen on site. Eventually we found signs that sent us to the hotel on the other end of the block!. One staff member did not know how I was checked... More

We made a mistake. The best I can say is that the rooms were clean, the daily service was efficient and it is close to the CBD. Substandard for the price, this place is in need of renovation or demolition. There are no security, no reception and no frills. Got a second suitcase? Open it on the floor. Want to... More

Very basic. After a long trip it was very disappointing. Looked good on the photos but not so in real life! Expensive for what it was. Same price in Goondiwindi got us a much better room. Won't be staying there on our return trip.

Very small room with no frills. Located close to pubs, restaurants and cafes in town. Has air conditioning which is handy because bathroom has a window that can't be closed so at least you can heat up the room. It's clean but because of the open window we had some mosquitoes at night. They need to provide a hand towel... More

This would have to be the worst motel I have yet to encounter. After a long drive, this looked OK as it was close to eateries etc. We had to walk around the block to the Occidental Hotel to make the booking. Once seeing the room I would have booked out but the thoughts of going around the block again... More

Having read some good reviews, we decided to overnight here on a trip out west. We arrived around 5.30pm and found the motel easily. Check in was actually elsewhere, a 3 minute walk down the street to the Hotel Canobolas. After a bit of hunting, we found the check in counter and attempted to check in. We were told that... More

This motel has been taken over by another hotel a street away and so reception is a walk away - this is not great after a long day's drive. The room is very basic, it was clean but lacked extras at all- only two pillows- a tiny bathroom and next to the road so noisy . There is no food... More

Getting to Orange late and leaving first thing next day so just wanted something clean and comfortable overnight. This place was fine. Small and a bit worn but very clean and certainly adequate for a couple overnight. Not huge but as well as the double bed there was a table and chairs and fridge. Bathroom was fine and shower was...

Having previously stayed in the motel section of the Occidental, I was only offered a pub style room this time, not wanting to have to re park and search for alternatives, I paid the price for my laziness.

Food at this hotel is just sensational. Chicken & steaks were massive and cooked to perfection. Service from the bar staff was exceptional. Very friendly bar staff who remembered our order of drinks for 8 people after this first round was purchased. I would stay at this hotel & eat there next time I'm in Orange.
