“Great little motel for a quick or long stay, work or play - I must say I was surprised by the overall presentation of the room. Everything was clean, tidy and inviting. The new beds were very comfy especially with the heated blankets. The host Jacinta was very accommodating and easy to communicate with via phone or text. She also gave me links to tourist spots around town and was only ever a text away if I needed anything. Check in was remote which is good if you are arriving late etc. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this motel to anyone and I would definitely stay here again. Convenient location to everything in Dorrigo with IGA and PUB directly opposite, servo and bakery down the road. Great spot”

"Everything You Need - This hotel is perfectly located in the centre of Dorrigo. The beds are very comfortable and there are a lot of thoughtful extras in the room. The bathroom amenities smell beautiful. They are a lovely quality. There is tea, coffee, espresso bags and biscuits. There is also a toaster, microwave, kettle, heater, fan, electric blanket, cutlery and plates and bowls. The rooms are spotlessly clean and feel really fresh. It has everything you need and more."

"Rustic charm and comfy interior - It's not even the clean high ceiling rooms, crisp linen or copious solar hot water that lingers in your memory it's the hospitality. Right in town, close to supermarket, cafes and bottle shop. A great spot to recharge your batteries."
