“They came to our rescue!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2011

We were booked into the Highlands Motor Inn originally for our stay in Oberon. We drove from Sydney on a Friday night with 2 young children and arrived in Oberon at just before 9pm to find that Highlands Motor Inn was completely closed for the night. After numerous attempts to get in touch with the owners we realised we had to find somewhere to stay that night. That's when The Big Trout came to our rescue. They were just about to close but stayed open to let us in. The room was clean and comfortable and warm, the beds were comfortable and the people were lovely. The view from our 2 bedroom spa room was lovely too. The restaurant was convenient and the food was fine. And to top it all off they gave us a discount. We were very happy and will stay at The Big Trout again.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2010

This motel is clean, neat and tidy. Has a good Chinese Restaurant on the premises that is reasonably priced.

It was a cold night and the oil heater automatically came on, and stayed on all night. Good size room had a queen and single bed.

Room deoderant was a little overpowering, but we opened the window and the door and got rid of most of the "flowery" deoderant smell.
