Driving from Sydney to Adelaide we made this our first nights accommodation. You could hold a party in the room it was so big; excellent if you had a couple of children travelling with you. The facilities are first class and the room has everything you could want; Wi-Fi, cable TV as well as the usual T&C making facilities, microwave...

we always used to drive straight through hay without stopping but you should do yourself a favour and stop to smell the roses there is actually a great town just off the highway and the start pint should be the saltbush motor inn it is away from the main road so you don't get trucks driving past your window all...

Just like to tell everyone that saltbush is one of the best motels to stay in. We had 3 people in a unit and the room was huge. Every thing is very, very clean as we are very fussy because we have a cleaning business as well, lol. You can not fault this place and with 200 plus reviews on...

I know, I've given this review a grand title but honestly, this place deserves every compliment it gets. The room (#3) is immaculate, new carpet and other than the usual table/chairs and kitchen set up, was just like arriving to stay with a relative in their new house. New carpet, fresh paint, tasteful bed coverings, great pillows, quiet aircon and...

Stayed here a few years ago when it was new. Hasn't deteriorated at all and is the best example of what a good motel at a good price should be. Extremely tidy, great environment and a good night's sleep. Spot on.

And yes, I finally got to take a dip in the nice little pool as well. :-) Anyhow, this little gem in the middle of Hay still lives up to expectations, and I was pleasantly surprised to be given the very same room I had on my very first stay there (Room 2, a Queen Suite). Thanks for everything, and...

Had a stop over on the way to and back from Adelaide. We stayed in a family room on the way which we found very comfortable and spacious. And on the way back a smaller room but still very spacious . The rooms were very clean and tidy , the staff were friendly and helpful.

Reasonable sized underbench fridge with small ice compartment. Kettle, toaster. Opposite a well stocked IGA. On Main Street so handy to eateries etc. Parking outside room. Free...

We've stayed at the Saltbush several times; it's our favourite stop in Hay. It's not obvious to find, but the location on the main street is great: a short walk from cafes, pubs and the supermarket. The rooms are fresh, well furnished and clean. There's a small swimming pool which is great to cool off. The staff are friendly and...

The absolutely tidy exterior appearance sold me on this motel located right on the main road through Hay. Well furnished rooms with all the appliances you need for a couple of night stay. Very well insulated. It was 30 Celsius outside and our room was still cool without switching on the AC. Patio with table at the rear for picnics...
