Nice comfortable beds, clean and tidy. Has airconditioner and blockout blinds to keep the room nice and cool. Making it easy to sleep.Friendly people. Within walking distance of restaurant and pub. Would definitely recommend it

We needed somewhere to stay after a late check out from the hospital. Staff where very friendly and accommodating. Check in was very quick. We stayed in the disabled room. It is huge. Beds are super which is exactly what i needed. They were very accommodating to our needs. We were very appreciative of them. We will definitely be staying here again when we need to do an another over-nighter.

Love staying at the Cattle City . Pete and Cath are brilliant , the food is fantastic , try the Fishman Basket , good luck to finish it. The Bar is mind blowing . Its like a second home . I always look forward to stay at the Cattle City .

The room was very neat and tidy, older room but kept in immaculate condition. The staff could not have been more lovely and helpful. You felt like you were part of the family from the time you arrive.

A clean and tidy motel on the main road. Unlike others though, the room I had here was quiet, and there was no midnight rumble from passing semi trailers. However, even in the depths of winter, we needed a fan going as there is no air circulation because of the lack of windows. Reception staff were friendly. Rooms were clean. Smokers are banished to the car park, which means you have to walk through a plume of smoke to get to your room.

We have stayed here a number of times when travelling though on long road trips with three children in tow. It is a great place to stay overnight as it is on the highway and close to fuel stations and family friendly food outlets. We arrived after 7pm and were welcomed and our room still had parking right outside the door. In previous trips when there have been five of us the family room was upstairs which made taking luggage more difficult but the room was laid out well and had a separate space for the children.

The only room still available at an acceptable price was the smallest one , I'm sure. Known as "The Closet" it is aptly named yet still large enough for one person to spend a night. The shower was hot with plentiful water and the bed was not bad at all. All the usual amenities were at my disposal. A large window opened onto a private area allowing me to have fresh air while resting after my long drive south. The highlight of my stay was dinner at the motel's Blue Heeler Restaurant where I was looked after to perfection by the kindly host.

Love these older style motels where you can park the bike straight outside the motel room. It was also a bonus that the carpark was flat. Location of the motel right on the highway was very convenient (petrol station directly opposite) and whilst this motel has been around a long time- the room was clean and the air conditioning quiet. I would be only too happy to stay at this establishment again. Good value for money.

Stay here on our way back home kids loved the pool. The owners are very friendly there is a restaurant or you can get room service which the meal was delicious highly recommended staying here for leisure or business rooms and very nice and very clean

Arrived later than expected at the Motel, but had no problem finding our room key in the security coded box. Room was lovely, bed comfortable. Highlight was the Main Boss organising a staff member to bring my wife, who has mobility issues, an ample and delicious breakfast tray to our room. Most welcome albeit unexpected. My Son and I had our breakfast in the restaurant. Checkout was easy and staff were helpful and professional. Would recommend this Motel to anyone.
