The Railway Motel and Woodlands Guesthouse provides comfortable rooms with character and charm in a relaxed, friendly environment. The old hotel has been converted into delightful en suite rooms with large bathrooms and spa baths while the motel units are cheap, clean and comfortable. Three of the motel units are pet friendly. All the rooms have reverse cycle air conditioning, television, fridge, microwave, kettle and hot drinks. A complimentary light self serve breakfast is provided in the foyer of the old hotel. This is often quite a social event. The motel does not provide evening meals but guests need only walk 200 metres to the local hotel which provides a range of hearty meals or takeaways.

Such a beautiful place to stay with real character. The room we stayed in was a basic double room but with the most comfortable bed. We had a spa bath in our ensuite and all for $110! The hostess was just so welcoming and lovely - it felt like being reunited with a family friend. All in all a great one night stay and when we are next in Norseman we will certainly stay here.

Wonderful pub with all mod cons, great furnishings and a welcoming hostess. Quite a surprising find and well worth a visit. This is exactly the sort of historical, interesting, comfortable stop that people touring Australia need.

We loved this place, which we found at the end of a long and hot Nullarbor crossing. The building is a lovely green on the outside and amazing on the inside. Not sure what era - Art Deco maybe? We took a motel room out the back, very simple but adequate and the most comfortable beds and pillows. We were too stingy to pay an extra $30 for a spa suite in the main building (next time!) but the looked amazing. Breakfast is put out in the dining room to help yourself. The owner has installed a top quality coffee machine with beans you grind on the spot and real milk! We were directed down the road to the pub for dinner, and that was pretty good too.

We are staying at the hotel now. Got two massive interconnected rooms and spa bathroom. Proprietor could not have been nicer or more helpful. We are very glad we decided to come here. If you like eclectic Aussie hotels then you are going to love this

Old clean hotel room.The spa in the bathroom makes up for the oldness of the building. Needs a face lift.The dining and breakfast area was dusty. A nice hotel but needs some tender loving care. Bed was comfortable.

Room Tip: Get the room with the spa in the bathroom. It makes up for everything else.
