We stayed in room 44, and it was very spacious with a comfortable bed. Nice and clean. It’s a great location opposite the bowling club which has great meals. You can become a temporary member, they sign you up at the motel, for $3 (which you get a voucher for) and you receive 10% off your room price. It’s within walking distance of cafes and town. A great place to stay in Lightening Ridge

Very pleasant stay at the Wallangulla Motel. Clean and tidy room and facilities, very pleasant, helpful and friendly staff. Very quiet at night too. We took out associate membership for $5 at the bowlo just across the road, so that entitled us to a 10% discount on our room! Very good value and we really enjoyed our stay at Lightning Ridge!

This ordinary motel was great opposite the bowls club where we had great seafood and the best honey king prawns I have ever had!!! Close to the hot springs. Easy walking distance to pizza and restaurants. Simple but great and our motto is the KISS principal as in keeping it simple πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Stayed in room 41 for 2 nights and travelled with a group of friends on motorcycles. The manager was very accommodating and let us use the mini bus to travel around and see the car door tours. The room was clean and well appointed. The motel is just across the road from the club and a very short walk to the tourist centre. We will stay here again.
