Stayed two night at this motel. The motel was a clean and tidy. The bed was comfortable. The room was self contained with a kitchenette. Even though it is on a main road there was no noise either from the road or the guest at the hotel. Breakfast was ordered when we arrived and a continental breakfast was delivered each afternoon to the room which was great as we had a 6.00am flight on the last morning and was able to have breakfast before leaving. We frequently visit family in Townville and stay at a different location but in future we will be staying at Banjo Paterson Motor Inn.

Each room comes with toaster, kettle, plates, cups, cutlery, fridge. Rooms are clean and tidy, beds are comfy with lots of pillows. Continental breakfast is delivered in the afternoon - only issue with that is our room did have a small collection of ants on the desk, which found the continental breakfast... Overall - really good place to stay for the price.

A very pleasant motel. The room was of high quality and nice and clean. Plenty of towels. Breakfast included in tariff and had to be ordered on checking in and was promptly delivered to the room. Restaurant closed due to current restrictions so had to go out for evening meal which was not a problem. Location was good and the place was well presented. Staff very pleasant. Book off the web site which was easy to do.

I only had to stay here for a night and heading back to Hamilton tomorrow. I can say that this is much better than the place I stayed in Cairns for 3 days and 2 nights. The room is super clean and so is the bathroom is big. This deserves a 5* for a perfect place to stay.

Arrived unannounced and booked 4 nights. The owner pointed out the renovations and seeing is believing. We had stayed at this motel several years ago and it was just so-so. They have upgraded everything and it gives more expensive accommodation a run for their money! Continental breakfast basket delivered to your room the night before. Refrigerator and microwave furnished. Lovely new mattress!
