A Railway Lodge Motel

Traveller (23)
Dining (1)
Railway Lodge, Taree, is a quirky and interesting heritage building, still retaining much of its colourful history. Having originally been the Railway-Drivers` Barracks for many years, the Lodge is close to the Railway Station yet close to Taree shops, Manni Base Hospital and the beautiful Manning River. The owner has enhanced the historic building and property with an eclectic and exotic collection of antiques and artwork from all over the world, including many Australian pieces, making the place a goldmine of fascination and intrigue. A steam engine greets guests on their arrival and a small gallery of railway memorabilia scatters itself throughout the property, also the Lodge is located directly next door to the local model railway, for those train enthusiasts. A Railway Lodge is clean and quiet and definitely not indicative of its reasonable tariff. Reception hours are from 8am-8pm. A complimentary continental breakfast is available for all of our guests to enjoy between 7am-10am

Dreadful place. The hotel manager was ill-mannered, and rude - and not very helpful. The "continental breakfast" was a bad bad joke - simply comprised of low-end supermarket yoghurt and cheap nasty cereals - ridiculous! Also, this is place is far too expensive for such terrible

The first room, a double, we were given was one of the smallest motel rooms I've ever been in. Suitable for crashing for one night but not much else. Definitely not big enough to get ready for a wedding, for example. We go moved to another room due to a light not working.
