Comfy bed, quiet location given close proximity to highway. Bit dark in the room though so waking up in the morning can be a bit tricky unless the curtain is drawn, but this means anyone can peer right into your room. Biggest bug bear is that the doona doesn't have it own cover and is sandwiched between 2 sheets. This...

We booked here because we were going to a wedding up at Seclusions. It's on the outskirts of Lithgow on the highway and a convenient location. We received welcome emails before arrival and after departure - a nice touch. Arrival process was very smooth and the room was as booked. We had a queen spa room very good size, well...

The tv stopped working in my room and they replaced it for us very quickly. We had opted for breakfast to be brought to the room but my daughter wanted to eat in the restraunt at...

Have stayed here twice now. So close to Lake Lyell Recreation Park. Handy if not wanting to camp. Spacious clean rooms, A/C, comfortable beds. Some king rooms available. Quiet off the street. Very impressed.

I've stayed here in the past for work. It's a sold place to stay for that. As a couple, there may be better places around. Unfortunately their restaurant was closed due to a family emergency, but also in the past, it had great food.

I was travelling for work and stayed here in December 16. Reasonable location - even so next to Great Western Highway, there was no noise and it was quiet. The rooms are away from the Highway. Rooms are reasonably clean and comfortable too.

I had the opportunity of staying here earlier this month. Not having booked I pulled up at around 7pm hoping to get a room. The office was locked and a message was stuck to the glass to ring a mobile number. I rang the number and booked in and was told that there was a key in the key box...

Rooms are spacious and quiet, with the hotel about 3kms for Lithgow main street. Opt for lower numbers rather than highway facing, but noise not really a problem Plumbing needs an upgrade and can be a bit noisy but good hot water. Great steaks and fish. Rooms don't include breakfast, so worth negotiating up front. No options close by.
