Excellent motel for break en route to the Gold Coast

Review of Border Motel
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 May 2021
Not often would I give 5 stars for a country hotel but this place was excellent. Took the Tripadvisor advice and booked here for our one-night stopover. The reception was efficient a pleasant. The rooms, though small ( but not depressingly small) was really well presented. Quite a pleasant room for a night's stay. The bed was comfortable & the shower was pretty good too. Very handy to all the town's facilities but quiet as trucks do not pass here. Will be my motel of choice every time I visit Goondiwindi. By the way, Goondiwindi is a great town, clean, ordered & most welcoming. Make sure you eat at the New Dynasty Chinese - the best county venue I have ever visited.

We stayed here overnight on the way from Warwick to Lightning Ridge.
Spotlessly clean and in good repair
Quiet away from the road
Park directly outside the room
The motel was full which confirms it is a good choice.

Disliked · A fairly small room and the kitchenette was pretty cramped.

It’s easy to see why this is the highest rated motel in Goondiwindi, we have stayed here numerous times passing through.
A warm greeting is given to you on arrival, this motel is constantly upgrading, spotlessly clean, modern furniture and fittings, upmarket ammenities, the bed would not be out of place in a 5 star hotel super comfy.
Rooms are well laid out, quiet split a/c smart TVs with Netflix.
The owner Tara does a great job the final bonus her dogs and the latest edition a St. Bernard puppy who loves a cuddle.
Just remember to book direct to the motel to save commissions and fees going to overseas 3rd party companies, plus with Covid cancellations are always easier to arrange when dealing directly with the property.

We recently travelled with extended family and stayed at the Border Motel. What a wonderful place to find. Not only was the owner friendly and welcoming, the room was so well appointed including the best beds I've ever slept on anywhere in all my travels. They were like sleeping on clouds. We stayed over Easter weekend and still can't believe how cheap the rate was. One of the best little finds we've had on our travels. Will be back for sure.
