We are regular guests at the Zig Zag Motel. On arrival, we are always warmly greeted by the Receptionist, and Michael, the owner. Rooms are exceptionally clean with comfortable beds and good quality linen. Staff are friendly and helpful, ready to assist with any problem that may arise. The on-site Switchback Restaurant is a plus; meals are delivious, comparable with...

The room was lovely, well appointed and the bed very comfortable. Nice and quiet in a good location. Great to park our car in front too. Everything we needed for a weekend escape. Would recommend highly!

Have stayed a number of times. Rooms are always well presented, staff friendly and more than helpful to your needs. Is very good for the workers with the availability of meal times and lunches to go. Will be continuing to stay. Thank You.

We chose to stay here on our week trip to Jenolan Caves. It was clean & comfortable; restaurant food was good quality and well presented; staff were very receptive and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. This would be one of the better country motels we've stayed at to date.It's also off the main road and fairly quiet.

Not a bad motel but it is a bit dated and at $120 per night, I'd rate it as average. Rooms are a good size, clean and everything works. So it's practical place to stay for a work trip and gets plenty of workers staying so it can be a little bit noisy first thing in the morning when everyones...

When I booked I told them that we had a wedding to go to and they were happy for us to arrive early. The check in was very quick and easy. The staff were very helpful. The motel is on the outskirts of Lithgow but very quite. The rooms were fairly modern and comfortable. We had breakfast which was very...

Everything was in order when we arrived. I booked our accommodation early in April for our October wedding. No complaints except that the rooms seemed a little expensive. Rooms were comfortable and clean.
