Lovely spacious, quite, clean room and the service was great! Travelling up from Victoria, we elected to book something along the way but were having difficulty finding somewhere. Most places were not very helpful and some with poor customer service, but the Thunderbird Motel were very accommodating and super friendly. Would definitely recommend.

I can’t really add more than my previous review. The Thunderbird motel ticks all the boxes. Very large, clean and modern rooms with everything you need. The restaurant was closed on the evening I stayed. However, in room dining was available. No reason to stay anywhere else in Yass.

All aspects of the room were clean and inviting. The staff catered for my delayed check in and did all they could to make me comfortable. I had one of the best sleeps ever and woke very refreshed to continue my journey. Thanks Thunderbird, i'll be back on my next trip!
