Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Room is comfortable and clean. This is our second visit to this facility. Last time we visited there weren’t the vast number of contract workers staying here. Have to be very mindful of noise as many rooms house shift workers. That being said they were quiet and respectful of other guests. The Receptionist has a distinctly unusual modus operandi. He engages in banter then keys in the dollar amount, without first checking to see if you agree to the price or actually letting you know what the price is. He did this exact same thing 18 months ago. The saving grace is the included hot breakfast which is well executed. Coffee is made to order and of good quality. So the price of the room $170 includes two cooked breakfasts and beverages. The township’s old fashioned shop fronts are at your door step.

Location in centre of town is a bonus as it is easy walking to cafes and museums. Breakfast was generous and shower was lovely and hot. Bed was comfy and cosy and all accessories worked easily. Check times for museums and shop opening times - many close at 3pm.

We had stayed at this Motel a couple of times before. So coming thro again, I knew where we would stay. Booked a twin room incl breakfast for $143 for 1 night. I did not realise this until I came to do the review. We were allocated Room 10. Its a very nice double room with parking out the front. It has a kitchenette incl sink. Induction stove, microwave & enough cooking utensils to cook some dinner if you felt like doing so. We were going out to dinner, however, & breakfast is provided, so no cooking for us. Air con & ceiling fan & electric blanket on the bed. Everything is in good working order wifi works well & there is a tv. The windows are openable, which I always really like. The ensuite is smallish & the shower has a rain shower head. There is a retractible clothes line too, which is an excellent idea for those on a longer road trip. The motel located right in town with easy walking to eating places for dinner. Breakfast is complementary with the room. It is held in the restaurant Larsens across the road from 7am. It is very generous & incl a choice of poached eggs & bacon & tomato, baked beans, savoury mince or cereal, yogurt fruit & a coffee, tea hot choc or juice, all served by pleasant staff. You can choose more, but that comes with a reasonable price tag. We chose the lighter choice of cereal, yogurt & fruit, which was excellent. Even though the motel is located on a corner & right in town, it was very quiet & we slept well. This motel still represents very good value given the complementary breakfast & the very comfortable room. It did not matter to us that the bed configuration was not what I booked.

I recently stayed overnight and was very happy with room. The motel is in the middle of town and in walking distance to all the attractions. My room had a great kitchen area, the bed was comfortable with really nice pillows, plenty of hot water in the shower and overall very clean. The owners were lovely and very helpful with local knowledge. The free breakfast was a lovely bonus in the Larson's Cafe which is associated with the motel. I highly recommend and would stay again.

In this day and age, many motels seem to be unable to update and modernize their facilities. The scale of economy won't allow it. The room we had at the TD motel was such an example......no ambience..very stark and the "bathroom"was dreadful; it was cold, tiny, dark and rather dank. The shower curtain had mould, the shower rail was rusting, the tiles were grotty etc etc. However, the service we received at reception was delightful and very helpful. The breakfast was okay.....only one choice from the menu. It was not a 'full' breakfast. Country motels are doing it tough I guess. We stayed at another establishment on the Blue Mtns the following night and wasn't any better.

We attend here for 1 night. It was extremely clean and had everything you wanted. When we arrived the handyman was so helpful and very welcoming. The owner of the Motel also owns a cafe and makes the best coffee in town. We were given a complimentary breakfast and it was amazing. I had 2 poached eggs with 1/2 sliced avocado with hollandaise sauce. My husband had the big break and he loved it.The chef did a great job as I am a chef myself. The presentation was very excellent

The room had been recently renovated and included a large TV, fridge, cooktop, microwave, cookware and cutlery. The queen size bed was very comfortable and had quality pillows. The bathroom was large, bright and spotlessly clean. Across the road was the associated Larsen’s Restaurant for dinner and breakfast at a reasonable price. This was probably the best regional motel I have stayed in for many years and was a very pleasant experience. Thoroughly recommended and I would stay again.
