This motel is a little surprising - Lightning Ridge was booked out - including the Bluey Motel. Make sure you book. Located across the road from the LR Bowling Club (great food there too) and has all the amenities you need. Little kitchenette in the room was very handy and comfy beds. I was warm, dry and all the basic needs were met. The staff were so helpful as we were arriving late / leaving early etc - helped us out with good old fashioned bush hospitality! Thanks for the room!

A very clean motel in the centre of town with outstandingly good service. Two great outdoor shaded areas, one with a BBQ. Corinna was extremely helpful and friendly. Will definitely stay again the next time we are in town. Mike from Parramatta

Two nights in the ridge in a clean well organised room. Carinna was the most helpful host . The complementary bar b que facility was a big plus. Will be back again on next trip. Recommend blueys motel. Location across the road from the Bowlo helps so you don’t have to drive.

We recently stayed at bluey motel while on holidays in lightning ridge The rooms are a good size and extremely clean and well kept and fully self contained The air conditioner worked great and was a blessing in the heat Kerry and Robert (the owners) were so welcoming after a couple of days it felt like we had known them for years They booked all our tours of the ridge and all we had to do was stand out the front of the motel of a morning and we were picked up I would recommend this motel to anyone who Is looking to holiday at the ridge Good clean friendly honest service If I ever get a chance to get back there I will be staying at Bluey motel
