The Cheris (my husband and I) first discovered this gem seven years ago when we first got engaged. Since then, we have been going there every year on our annual Christmas trip to Canberra (to see my family) from Port Augusta, South Australia. Due to Covid, we couldn't go as usual in Christmas 2020. We went instead in June 2021 and got there via a horror trip via the NSW Outback. We had to change our travel plans frequently due to Outback flooding/road closures/gallumping goats and marauding mice. The kindly couple who run the motel were very accommodating and gave us a lovely room when we finally got there. The motel is within staggering distance of the famous Hay Bowlo, which boasts the best Country Town Chinese in NSW and a friendly, decent pub. The rooms at the Highway Inn are very clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. The water pressure in the showers is excellent. Nothing is too much trouble for the kindly couple who run the facility. We cannot reccomend this place highly enough. It's one of life's great pleasures.

We chose this motel by its location opposite the Bowling and Golf club. On arrival we were very happy to find a really lovely room, large and modern and roomy. It was very clean and fresh and well appointed with everything we wanted. The proprietor was very friendly and helpful. We had a queen room which had a comfortable queen bed, lounge, table and chairs, tv, microwave. Very nice!

The room was very clean. Off the main road, so quieter than many. A couple of clubs nearby for dinner. Staff were friendly and helpful with speedy check-in Breakfast was reasonably priced with generous proportions.

We stayed in this Motel on the way to lake Mungo and on the Way back - and we are very happy that we chose this Motel. The room was huge - and bathroom was also very big and classy. Bed was very nice.. The staff made checkin and out easy and fuss free and when we were leaving the first time they said we had the same room on the return journey - so we just drove in front of the room to park the next time around. We had bacon and eggs for breakfast and it was very nicely cooked and I would recommend it... The Motel is situated a short walk from the main part of town and there also a couple of clubs closer for dinner if that is your choice..
