Excellent.

I can't understand the negative reviews. As on our previous two stays, we found everything to be as desired, from the friendliness in the phone booking and subsequent reception to the comfort of the room. Seniors discount brought the tariff to a very reasonable $110. The continental breakfasts at $10 were good. The room was spacious with two comfortable armchairs and the kitchen equipment comprised of toaster, electric jug, electric frypan, and (surprise) a pod coffee machine. En-suite was spotless and worked well, including a well-placed toilet roll holder, not requiring contortions to reach (a thing of mine).

I have stayed at this motel many times over recent years. The previous owners were friendly and welcoming, and really added to the enjoyment. The new owners have no people skills, and detract from the enjoyment of your holiday. I used to be able disregard the tired state of the decor.

Idlewilde is a lovely motel right next to the Panboola Wetlands and a very short walk from shops, coffee shops etc in Pambula. We had a very comfortable spacious room with all the facilities we needed. Thank you Sandra and DJ for your welcome - we felt very relaxed here and
will be returning later in year.

For the cost, $179 for one night, we were very disappointed. The room was clean but could possibly be classed as retro, if found in antique shop. The brick walls, the dated bathroom really were not what one expects this day and age.
The room had facilities for self catering and the benefit of bring able to wash up and prepare food in designated kitchen area. The coffee machine was a wonderful touch.
We may have been spoiled by our first night stay in Sale where the organisation is in the process of refurbishing the rooms to a very high standard with the cost $139 per night.

Clean and neat , close to town and other activities, great host. Stayed 3 nights, dj ( manager) gave us a comprehensive run down on arrival, of places to go things to see, turns out he was spot on. Loved the cool calm simplicity of the room , the bed was a little soft for my comfort, however the aircon and fan more than made up for it on those 30+ nights. The only thing is, please dont tell everyone , because we will be back and will be telling OUR friends.

We are coming back here! The motel is terrific. Modern, clean, close to town and lots of open space. The wetlands walks start from the motel BBQ area. Our hosts are the most friendly we have met. The brewery across the road is great too.
