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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We couldn't have asked for a better stay for our two days in Gilgandra. The room was very comfortable and great value. Our hosts were wonderful and provided us with good dinners and breakfasts. The extensive grounds were very pleasant and kept us away from any road noise.

I rang late in the afternoon after all motels were booked out in Dubbo. They fitted us in and were friendly and welcoming both on the phone and in person. The room smelled lovely when we opened the door. It had everything you could want and was scrupulously clean. Bed was comfy and had the softest, thickest towels. We didn't have meal but the menu looked yummy. Will definitely stay again if we pull up for the night in Gilgandra.

Room was very clean, modern and comfortable. Set behind an expanse of garden and far enough from road that noise is not a problem. But that is not what the 5 stars were for. They were for what is often lacking in the Australia - great hospitality. The motel offers meals to rooms (there is no restaurant on site) . There is plenty to choose from in what is a typical bistro menu. Mains from menu uploaded in photos I requested a few changes and extras to my meal and they were accommodated without any fuss whatsoever. Perfect. Oh - and another plus - fresh milk for the tea and coffee - always worth an extra star in a review. There are also some alcoholic beverages for sale to go with dinner (or to just drink) which is a bonus. Undercover parking for car outside door.

We stayed here overnight. The motel is about 25 years old,large rooms , quiet spot, and absolutely spotless. Lovely couple who own the motel and obviously take great pride in what they provide. Also able to have meals in your room great prices.

We were just passing through. The Cooee was very clean and comfortable. It is far enough off the road to reduce any highway noise, so very quiet. It has electric blankets if that’s your thing. We would stay here again.

Great motel that is close to the town centre but open park off main road in front of the motel makes it very relaxing. Nice walkwsy along river bank with museum across the road. Easy to find. Friendly staff and comfortable unit. Quiet town with all amenities and services.

My husband and i had a night at this motel, around 28th June, and we were so glad we did! Firstly, you park in front of your room, and its all undercover, which is great for hot weather and when its raining.It is set on a few acres,back from the road, and has places to sit and tables to eat from underneath the trees, which would be great for families with children. Gives them somewhere to run around after long car trips.Our room was wonderful! So very clean, it had everything we needed and the bathroom was a great size, having plenty of room to put your toiletries. The beds were comfy, and although it was next to the main road, we never had any trouble with noise.There was even a table and chair setting outside our door and a bucket and squweegy to clean windscreens. They also cook evening meals and bring them to your room, at a very really reasonable price, which we did, and it was a scrumptious meal, piping hot and delicious!Fantastic to have dinner bought to you like that and not having to go out if you didn't want to.Our hosts were lovely people,and made us feel very welcome.My husband and i will definately stay at the Cooee Motel whenever we stay in Gilgandra. We would like to thank our hosts again, for the welcoming stay we had, and cant wait for another yummy dinner to arrive at our door! We have no hesitation in recommending the Cooee Motel to all travellers!
