"Comfortable, clean and restaurant on-site."

Glad T, Mackay, Australia 19/08/2023

Room clean, tidy and comfortable. The food delicious for both dinner (barramundi) and breakfast (scrambled eggs). Room service was served as per requested time. Staff are friendly, professional customer service.

"Spa room"

User 14/08/2023

We enjoyed a very comfortable bed and a lovely spa. The staff were friendly and helpful.booking us in to the only roon available in the area after a cancellation. We had an enjoyable stay. Only down side was the parking space was very tight for my 4x4 ute.

"One of the better Best Western- but?"

markhS8847OQ, Queensland, Australia 04/08/2023

Good clean, fairly modern rooms only failing is the outdated TV for a motel at this price level. Not only is it small, but it lacks the ability to show HD TV shows. So several channels don't display video. Better TV's in cheaper motels. Undercover parking is welcomed when it is raining. Restaurant and service is top quality. Internet is resonable for business use.

"Excellent motel"

Mariela D, Sydney, Australia 01/06/2023

What a great motel and restaurant stayed one night on our travels, staff at reception was very friendly and easy to deal with, stayed in a deluxe room it was very big and big bathroom. Furnishings very modern and super clean, excellent location . The restaurant staff we exceptional and food was so delicious. Will most definitely stay here again

Paul Hodda, Owner at Best Western Ascot Lodge Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thanks for your review! We look forward to welcoming you on your next trip.

"Motel stay in Goondawindi"

helmutsandner2023, Brisbane, Australia 02/05/2023

This was the first time I stayed here. I was impressed with the quality of the Motel. A big plus for me is the undercover parking. The pool area is conveniently located. The restaurant is nice, the food was good quality. The staff are helpful and friendly. I will be staying here next time I visit Goondawindi.

"Impressionable stay"

John B, Coffs Harbour, Australia 15/04/2023

Stayed 2 nights in this great motel. Very informative and hospitable staff. Comfortable beds in a large tastefully furnished room, we had a sofa in our ours for relaxing, lovely large fluffy towels, super clean rooms serviced everyday, Yummy breakfast served everyday in the restaurant along with evening meals. Covered parking, clean pool and surrounds. Motel was at capacity both nights we were there, no disturbances from rooms either side of ours and no road noise even though property was close to a main road. Would definitely stay again if visiting Goondiwindi.

"Great accommodation and restaurant"

AussieCoight, Gold Coast, Australia 22/03/2023

This will absolutely be my go to accommodation for Goondiwindi. Great comfortable clean rooms which feel quite new in terms of bedding etc. Restaurant and bar were convenient, after a very long day on the road I didn't feel like venturing out and I'm glad I didn't. Great service and food. Plus quite reasonably priced. The biggest tick for me, I checked out early and dropped my keys in the outside safe, first thing in the morning they emailed my invoice without me having to chase it for weeks like other places. Simple, but impressed me.

"Steve w"

User 18/02/2023

What a wonderful place to stay, clean, comfortable, and efficient check in. I had barramundi for dinner via room service, and it was absolutely sensational, I loved every mouthful. I would recommend staying here and I will definitely stay here again.

"Clean and quiet stay."

User 14/12/2022

Very clean and quiet. Very friendly staff. Ate at the restaurant and recommend the eye fillet steak - Very good. Pool looked clean and welcoming, although I didn't go for a swim. Will stay there again as I come through for business a fair bit. Thanks again.

"Everything I needed"

JCJZ, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia 23/11/2022

Ascot is the most expensive in town but it's a small town. Very quite for being near a busy road. I tried to book the restaurant but they were fully booked so got room service and it was spot on. Clean and tidy. Owners and the staff were very friendly and that's always a bonus after travelling all day. Shower pressure was a little average here but I got clean so happy enough.

"After a hard day's drive, it was lovely to have a break from camping and being on the road for 5 days from Darwin!"

Charlotte P, Darwin, Australia 22/10/2022

Very comfortable and impeccably clean. Nice modern furnishings. Friendly to us despite our late arrival after driving endlessly through flooded roads. Reasonably priced. Good menu with a variety of tasty things to choose from. Thank you.

"Gourmet delights in Goondiwindi"

A9732LJmarieg, Brisbane, Australia 11/10/2022

Motel room was spacious and offered all amenities. Best part of our visit was dinner at their Cascades Restaurant. The main menu included divine Chicken Mango Curry, Braised Lamb Shank and Grilled Barramundi. Desserts do not disappoint. In particular, Death by Chocolate. Do consider this wonderful facility.

"Great place for a home base"

JSLG2022, Gold Coast, Australia 29/09/2022

We recently stayed 2 nights with friends and this place is certainly worth a visit. Front office staff gave us information on places to visit while in town and couldn't have been more helpful. Certainly recommend Best Western Ascot Lodge for people visiting town. The attached restaurant is worth visiting also while here, highly recommended.

"Very nice hotel"

330ianj, Gold Coast, Australia 13/09/2022

A very enjoyable 4 night stay in Goondiwindi at Best Western. Room was very well presented with a modern look and colour palette. Rooms are spacious, very clean and management and staff very helpful. I do not opt for room clean everyday but was still offered the option. Would highly recommend but make sure you book in advance as it was busy. Thank you.

"Best in Gundy"

Ross H, Warwick, Australia 06/08/2022

Great stay. The managers were so helpful and friendly. Staff in the restaurant were relatively new to Australia but very keen to help. Good food. Rooms are a good size and the a/c was turned on before we got there! To warm up our room. Happy to stay again

"Best Western is the Best"

User 03/08/2022

This is the Best Motel. The Staff are extremely helpful & pleasant, the Motel is clean & very comfortable. It is great having a lovely resturant to go to for Dinner & breakfast & is quiet at night. We have been staying there for years & have always found it the very very good.

"Great stay!"

User 26/07/2022

If you're heading to Goondiwindi make this your stop! The gentlemen at reception were fantastic and the food at Cascades was lovely - trust me, don't skip dessert, sticky date pudding was so YUM! Perfect little stop for a quick business trip out - will definitely be returning!

"Natalie Shaw"

User 16/07/2022

Excellent service had to work late so they organised a meal at 830pm and when they didn't have what I ordered they gave me another meal for the same price and threw in a free sticky date which was absolutely fantastic couldn't have asked for any better Thank you Paul and Danelle you are running a fantastic motel

"Best Western Ascot Lodge Motor Inn"

User 15/06/2022

I can highly recommend this motel for the friendliness and great service of the staff, the ease of check in and check out, the cleanliness of the rooms and the quality of the food in their restaurant. This was one of the best motels that we stayed at in Queensland

"Nice stay"

HW08, Port Macquarie, Australia 11/06/2022

A nice stay was had at Best Western Ascot Lodge , Goondiwindi. A very nice property that appears to be not that old. Rooms are well appointed with everything you would expect. The restaurant dinner was nice and staff excellent.


flattop17, Logan City, Australia 23/05/2022

Spent one night here on our trip ,around nsw and Queensland this was hands down one of the best we found for the price .clean ,,, modern ,,,good location ,,every thing we look for for a short stay …staff and owners were the best …

"No brainer."

Pamela H, Flaxton, Australia 10/05/2022

This is our fourth stay now at the BW and it never disappoints. The staff are friendly, obliging, courteous and above all very professional. The rooms are well appointed,clean and spacious. The restaurant is of a high standard and very reasonably priced. For us, after being in the vehicle for most of the day and looking for a great rest stop, this is the place.They do, stay,eat,sleep extremely well. Highly recommend.

"What a great place to stay and dine"

Trevor-Bonnie B, Bribie Island, Australia 08/05/2022

We had driven over 900 km and having stayed at a couple of very basic motels we were looking for something with a bit of quality about it. We certainly found it with this establishment. From the moment we walked into reception we new we had what we wanted. Yes it is more expensive but we got what we paid for. Even the milk we were given was in a proper little milk bottle not those terrible little drinking cartons which spill every where when you try to pore from them. The room was spacious with a large bathroom. An added bonus is Cascades Restaurant which is attached to the motel. The décor is spectacular and the food delicious. Take advantage of their happy hour; $5 for a glass of wine or beer.

"Nice Motel"

jjsbjd, Melbourne, Australia 04/04/2022

My husband and I always stay at Ascot Lodge when travelling through Goondawindi. The rooms are modern and clean and the management very helpful. Cascades Restaurant provides a tasty dinner or you can order room service. A great place to stay in the area

"birthday celebrations"

admin879, Walgett, Australia 28/03/2022

Rooms at the ascot are quite modern, very clean and well presented. We had a celebratory dinner at the restaurant and the food was great but they were a little understaffed and couldn't make cocktails so that was a little disappointing. There is a great looking pool on site but didn't bring the swimming togs unfortunately.


Burkie56, Urangan, Australia 08/03/2022

I was hot and tired after driving from Hobart over 3 days including the ship...it was pure joy to find a hotel that was clean, smart and friendly. Having a restaurant on site was great and it has a very nice wine list. Just loved it. Stay there. Really, stay there!

"Excellent quality"

William C, Sydney, Australia 12/02/2022

Had not stayed in a Best Western for some years. Very happy with the experience. Large modern bathroom, big comfortable bed and quality sheets, towels, pillows etc. Pool nice for a dip or two. Staff very helpful Quiet location just out of town ( but still on main road) so car needed if you want to have a meal in town.

"It's ok, maybe try something else"

Racer520, Newcastle, Australia 10/02/2022

I've stayed in Gundy a few times for work, given this place is a little out of town and not really in walking distance I've always avoided it. I decided to spend my next trip here and due to the high TA rankings I thought why not. Rooms are ok, beds extremely average and extremely noisy with the highway traffic. Had room service on one evening and it was good. Plenty more options in town, not sure why this is 1st, 401 reviewers can't be too wrong!!

"Goondiwindi's best!"

robertmR4835AU, Gold Coast, Australia 14/01/2022

Exception service,, quality of dining and cleanliness was outstanding.we would certainly stay at this motel again if ever in Gundy. The Manager ensured that our every need was fulfilled. The dining experience was such a wonderful surprise.

"Overnight stay"

User 01/01/2022

Great service, excellent food, very comfortable room . The restaurant has a great selection, our meals where very fresh and delicious. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Parking was very convenient, right outside the door

"Wonderful break on trip from Victoria to Sunshine Coast"

BFamily3556, Bendigo, Australia 31/12/2021

An excellent stop , friendly accommodating staff without being fake, excellent service, rates and delicious meals delivered straight to our door. The meals were superb, and included several terrific gluten free options. Would highly recommend.


401nickyb, Mudgee, New South Wales, Australia 27/12/2021

The rooms are clean, comfortable, well equipped and very spacious. The service is outstanding with incredibly friendly and professional staff who are always ready to help. The food (breakfast and dinner) is exceptional for a country motel.

"Top pick in Goondiwindi"

User 25/09/2021

I stayed here for work over about a month. Very clean and modern rooms, spacious showers, friendly staff. Food at the restaurant is top quality. I've seen it's a bit more expensive than other hotels in the area but probably worth it after seeing what the others are like. Would recommend if you have to stop on your travels. Honestly don't have a bad thing to say.

"Great overnight pit stop"

User 31/07/2021

We stayed here as a stopover on way home. Was pleasantly surprised how nice it was considering a motor in. Clean comfy beds good towels and bedding. Room service food good and prompt. Would stay here again when traveling. Clearly a well looked after.

"Clean and comfortable room"

User 01/07/2021

Friendly staff, clean and comfortable queen room, great food at the restuarant. Easy check in process. We were in a room that had a door to an adjoining room which did allow for noise to travel between rooms.

"Rep Experience"

russell229, Narrawallee, Australia 26/06/2021

I believe this property would be one of the best properties & have stayed in overall ! Exceptional service from Angela & Ian I was on the road for 13.5 hrs that day & from the direct phone booking with Angela & the follow up by Ian when i was still on my way the total experience was first class. The restaurant experience the same with great food & service from the very pleasant waiting staff

"Best Motel on our 9 day coach tour of N.S.W."

529eileeno, Brisbane, Australia 31/05/2021

Spacious; clean and comfortable room. Was very pleased that the bed had sheets and blankets instead of a doona . Quiet location off the highway. Pleasant dining room. Dinner and breakfast were delicious and the service was excellent.

"Great place to stay"

martingR3051TM, Brisbane, Australia 13/05/2021

Very neat and tidy. Beds very comfortable. Would highly recommend. A little bit off the highway so noise is quite low. All the amenities were spot on Restaurant serves excellent meals- just be careful to book as it fills up quickly

"Great stopover on our road trip"

625AngeB, Echuca, Australia 06/05/2021

Lovely motel in a good location, great dinner in the restaurant and fab brekky options. Spacious room, easy parking and staff we encountered provided great customer service. Pool and outdoor are also looked very inviting if we'd had time to use them

"Clean, neat, contemporary "

GClife, Gold Coast, Australia 17/04/2021

We stayed here one night. Good size motel room, comfortable bed and nice to have a two seater lounge. The room was well maintained, all modern including bathroom and bright art work. It's about a 10 to 15 minute walk into town. It's an easy stroll, but at night you will need to drive downtown

"Excellent Service"

User 30/03/2021

The room was very clean and the bed extremely comfortable. Rooms had everything we needed. Breakfast was delicious and exceptionally well priced. Owner was helpful and generous, assisting us with travel advice and enabled our party to all stay in rooms next to each other which made our stay very enjoyable. Highly recommend staying here.

"Great Motel"

jjsbjd, Melbourne, Australia 18/03/2021

The Ascot Lodge in Goondawindi is where we always stay in Goondawindi. The rooms are modern and very clean and the staff are very accomodating and friendly. Best motel in Goondawindi, highly recommend .

"Excellent stay"

corbes63, Australia 12/01/2021

Sadly only stayed here for one night passing through the area. Reservations were extremely helpful, advising me to make dinner reservations in advance at the on site restaurant Cascades which was a great tip as they appeared full on my visit. Check in was prompt and contactless, and I was asked if we wanted milk in our room, I inquired wistfully if lactose free milk might be available, “of course” was the answer which was unexpected but extremely helpful after a long day of travelling. In the room were menus for breakfast and dinner, and an option for a packed lunch as well, which we gladly took up as had a long journey the following day again. Pool towels were provided for use of the pool on request, and had we have stayed longer, their guest laundry would have also had a use too. The restaurant (and sandwiches for lunch) were excellent, so many choices for kids, adults and many dietary requirements. Didn't have breakfast, but room service looked great. Overall a great stay and was a welcome relief to stay in such a top notch full service establishment. Pictures attached of room service breakfast menu, packed lunch menu and dinner menus.

"Goondiwindi Getaway"

User 09/01/2021

Great place to stay - only minutes from the centre of town, quiet, friendly staff, good food, staff knowledgeable about places of interest in the area. Highly recommend this Motor Inn and would definitely stay here again.

"Excellent Accomodation"

brittaS882020, Brisbane, Australia 29/11/2020

Best Western Ascot Lodge has great rooms, that provide a great amount of space, always clean and tidy. Room Service is excellent great quality large meals served hot and at time requested. Quiet location, perfect for business or family travel.

"Very good"

User 25/11/2020

We stay here regularly and are never disappointed. Service is friendly and efficient. Rooms are clean and fresh. No traffic noise. Always get a good sleep here Definitely recommended. The restaraunt is very good too.

"Great restaurant "

630astridr, Brisbane Region, Australia 21/11/2020

Very clean rooms with nice toiletries.One of the most comfortable beds I have slept in!! Restaurant is unusual with cathedral ceiling and bar area but lacks table coverings, a result of Covid restrictions but, very nice varied menu with something for everyone, good wine/drinks list. Pricing is competative. Staff very attentive to cleaning when tables vacated. Nice pool area with lounges.

"Best stay at Best Western Goondi"

director715, Toowoomba, Australia 15/11/2020

Recently I travelled for work with a colleague and we were so impressed with the service and food options at Best Western Ascot in Goondi. The food was exceptional and that restaurant is beautiful - love the waterfall wall.

"Great Experience"

johnhose6, Brisbane, Australia 06/11/2020

You will travel a long way to find a better hotel stay than at this establishment. Service is excellent,food is excellent and the rooms are of of high standard in all aspects. Great Team and everyone seems to excel in offering service beyond expectations,

"Best food"

ctsnorth, Brisbane, Australia 30/10/2020

Our meals were exceptional. The sort of quality you would only expect from a high end city restaurant. Staff were very friendly & attentive without being in your face all the time. I had no problems with our bed although my wife said she found it uncomfortable (we have a very comfortable bed at home).

"Goondiwindi Stopover"

anneludbrook, Sunshine Coast, Australia 09/10/2020

After a long road journey I arrived at this delightful little hotel in Australia's outback. It was a little oasis of charm and efficiency. Everything was tastefully done and very clean.The food was excellent and the bed was the best I had slept in, in a hotel, ever.

"Exceedingly comfortable room and some of the best food I have had in Australia"

Nigel R, Edinburgh, United Kingdom 12/08/2020

We had two nights here as part of a road trip in SouthEast Queensland. The welcome was very friendly and the room spacious and comfortable as well as very clean. As we had driven from Roma, we decided not to go looking for somewhere else to eat but have dinner in house. We were absolutely stunned by the quality of the seafood chowder risotto and lamb shank. The accompanying pumpkin, feta and walnut salad was a delight. It was so good we ate there twice. The second night we had bacon and chicken pasta and chicken wrapped in parma ham. The only disappointment was that the dauphinoise potatoes were not available on the second night. Katerina's service was friendly and efficient. We both really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone wanting accommodation in Goondiwindi

"Fantastic service"

User 21/05/2020

We stayed here on the way to nsw and on the way back. Received excellent service both times. The staff couldn't do enough for us both times having our meals ready on arrival and would go out of their way for anything needed. Would definitely recommend. Thanks guys for a fantastic service. Ashlee-

"Close to Hwy without the noise"

brendanjt, Townsville, Australia 04/05/2020

I didn't book, stopped here at the end of a long day on the road. Manager couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating. Clean comfortable rooms with lots of space. Room service meal was very welcome and well cooked. Undercover vehicle parking, a very good set up. Thank you!

"Amazing hospitality"

User 12/04/2020

Spent three nights at the Ascot during the Covid lockdown, Paul and his team couldn't have been more helpful and hospitable to us. The rooms are very clean and modern, and the facilities were excellent. Thoroughly recommend staying here.

"Great Spot to stop in..."

Business7072, Glenview, Australia 22/03/2020

Fantastic food and service. Would definitely recommend. Though the option for a King bed would just make this place perfect. Overall the room is clean and well equiped and staff where very friendly. Great place.

"Nice motel and restaurant "

SteveA107, Shepparton, Australia 07/03/2020

Stopped in on way to Victoria. Met by friendly front desk. Room is spacious and bathroom larger than normal. Parking is tight but doable. All requirements are in the room and the Cascades restaurant in the facility is very good. A bit out of town, but worth it.

"Very nice"

U9126JTmichellem, Brisbane, Australia 05/03/2020

We had a lovely welcome and accomodation was really clean and comfortable. Excellent onsite restuarant. Could check mattresses occassionally for replacement, as ours already had existing compression, showing signs of wear. However we would definitely stay again.

Joel W, General Manager at Best Western Ascot Lodge Motor Inn, responded to this review
Dear "U9126JTmichellem", Thank you for your wonderful feedback. It's great to hear that you found our rooms really clean and comfortable and also that you had an excellent meal in our onsite restaurant Cascades. We are to sorry to hear that the bed did not meet your expectations, please get in touch directly with us so we can rectify this as a matter of priority. We wish you all the best and hope to see you again soon.

"Great spot to stop"

User 07/02/2020

My husband and I had a long drive , approx eleven hours and needed to stop . This motel turned out to be perfect . It was clean, quiet and affordable. Off street parking,friendly staff and an onsite restaurant offering a good range of meals. We don't head this way often but will stay here again when next up this way.

"Great Stay"

petermh437, Gran Canaria, Spain 03/02/2020

Great service, great rooms, great food - what more do you want ! Thank you Paul and team. The Casacade Restaurant with the water cascading along the windows makes it a very relaxing place. and refreshing place in teh Summer heat.

"On Holidays"

Maria v, Gold Coast, Australia 31/01/2020

This is the second time we have been here and I really like it.Nice and bright.Roomy in the bathroom,great shower nice towels.We went for dinner in the restaurant got two for one for only $30 and the meal was great.

"Good stopping point on a long drive"

Garry D, Canberra, Australia 17/01/2020

Near the highway (no noise from traffic) and a good over night stopping accommodation for travellers travelling in both directions. Clean large rooms with a good restaurant. Clean pool and very friendly staff. Stopped there travelling to and from Queensland over the 19/20 Chrissy New Year Break. Good honest accommodation and service.

"Best place to stay"

Panzano07, Yass, Australia 29/12/2019

We were welcomed after a ten hour car trip with quick service, fresh milk, a clean room and a really comfortable bed. Cascades is the motel's restaurant with reasonable prices and specials for each night of the week. Most enjoyable.


macca9092, Gold Coast, Australia 27/12/2019

We checked in on a very hot Christmas Eve. The gentleman on the reception was welcoming and helpful and made sure we had enough milk, towels etc over the Christmas day closure. When we got to our room we were pleasantly surprised. The twin room was extremely clean, very spacious and well appointed. The bed was so comfortable with lovely quality linen and pillows - and it was very quiet. Large bathroom with great shower. There is also an inviting pool with pool towels and deck chairs. Because we were there over Christmas, the restaurant wasn't open. Highly recommend this motel - we will definitely stay again.

"Very pleasantly surprised!"

MijE14U, Burleigh Heads, Australia 21/12/2019

Very neat, spotlessly clean, well presented with pleasant management - really, as good as it gets! No road noise at all. Pool area, restaurant and rooms were all well presented/maintained. The owner said to me they like to think of themselves as a ‘City Motel, just out in the country' and they meet that brief very well.

"Quiet, well appointed and situated motel"

carolrossendell, Twin Waters, Australia 10/12/2019

Staff at the motel were friendly and helpful on checkin and allowed us to checkin early. Found the car parking area was undercover which was great as it was very hot. The room had been set up and let with the air conditioner on, so it was a pleasant relief from the day. Huge shower!! Very pleasant decor with interesting art work instead of the normal boring bland items. Cascades Restaurant had a happy hour from 5 till 6 pm offering $5 wine and beer. Water curtains around the outside walls gave us its name and lent a cool refreshing feel to the space. The food was good, but not great. All up highly recommended.

"Great stay"

Ross H, Warwick, Australia 26/11/2019

Great motel on the edge of town. Small pool that is great after a hot day. Good restaurant - both breakfast and dinner. Happy hour drinks. Good rooms with good air con and comfortable beds. Free WiFi.

"Luxury plus"

User 11/11/2019

Great value for money. 4 star. Clean, beautiful, large.. Mini bar, restaurant. All you could ask for, then some. Surprising up market for a small country town. Highly recommended. I will certainly stay here again whenever I travel this way.

"Good value for money"

User 08/11/2019

Hotel is situated slightly out of town but walkable. The room we stayed in was very good and had everything you need. The food in the restaurant was very good although it is a very functional restaurant. Very good value for money.

"Nearly home"

Timothy R, Brisbane, Australia 05/11/2019

This was our second night on the road after driving from the south coast of Victoria, so it was a welcome sight to arrive in Goodi'. The Ascot Inn is close to the highway and easy to find. Evem though our room was at the front it was quiet. Having the restaurant on site made the choice of where to eat easy. The food was good and reasonably priced

"Fantastic place to stay"

Kay M, Mitchell, Australia 25/10/2019

Great location, quiet area, comfy beds, only complaint is the noisy people from Aurecon a couple of rooms down, who thought it was okay to make a lot of noise at 3.50am. Have a bit of consideration for others you inconsiderate people.

"Best Western Ascot, Goondiwindi comes highly recommend!"

rebeccafi75, Gosford, Australia 24/10/2019

A wonderful place to stay with the friendliest staff. Family suite was perfectly sized with a seperate room for children with their own TV, air conditioning, desk, mirror and two single beds both with bedside tables. Large bathroom. Very clean. On-site restaurant was superb and they also offer room service. Very easy check-in and out. Would certainly stay there again.

"Great motel in the outback"

Margaret W, Hobart, Australia 18/10/2019

Great location just off highway close to town but quiet recommend highly. There was a resaurant that we didnt use but always an option after a long day in the car. Bit pricey but you get what you pay for


Dawn F, Brisbane, Australia 14/10/2019

Firstly, we would like to compliment the Reception staff and the Restaurant staff. They were all friendly and helpful. The room was exactly what we had asked for and more. Very clean and updated. The bed was comfortable. Undercover parking for our car right outside our room. Yes, the old Motel style accommodation. Cascades Restaurant was absolutely beautiful with the clear glass waterfall windows. The food was also good and well prepared. They have a happy hour from 5 to 6pm, all drinks $5. Great after a long drive. Definitely return to this Motel. Cost $144 per night.

"Friendly and comfy"

susanclairethompson, County Durham, United Kingdom 01/10/2019

Very comfortable place to stay. My family and I stayed here for 4 days whilst on vacation. The surrounding area is so beautiful. I love this city. The lodge is so comfortable, the staff make you feel so at ease with everything. The rooms are large, beds are comfortable and clean. Room service are fast if you need anything at night. I highly recommend this place!

"Overnight Stay"

JudithI703, Newcastle, Australia 25/09/2019

Cannot speak highly enough of our stay. I tend to be fussy with cleanliness and have to say our room and facilities were spotlessly clean. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. The restaurant Cascades has amazing yummy and well presented food and again everything was spotless and staff were friendly and welcoming. Would recommend staying here to anyone who needs to stop over in Goondiwindi

"Overnight stay"

Marion B, Rockhampton, Australia 14/09/2019

Overnight stay in a very clean and well equipped room. Well situated in the area and a quiet spot. Plenty of space to move around. Meals in Restaurant were delicious and well presented. Very clean and friendly staff.

"Strictly for solo business overnighters I think"

Arkward4552, Sunshine Coast, Australia 11/09/2019

Very disappointed this time. Mattress and sofa clapped out. Internet signal unusable. No complimentary drinking water - disgraceful. 2 bed suite poorly designed (bed 2 users have to walk past bed 1 users to get to bathroom) Friendly, helpful and efficient staff however.


Warren K, Surfers Paradise, Australia 10/09/2019

great team happy to help good food happy hour good value room as new all our group satisfied! Traveled on Shoreline Coaches Gold Coast our host Chas Collins picks top touring! Very pleased with Ascot Goondiwindi!

"Choose the Ascot at Goondi."

Victourer, Horsham, Australia 01/09/2019

So nice to know there's a room available at the Ascot at Goondiwindi at the end of a long day travelling. Joel in reception is a friendly voice on the phone and a helpful Manager in reception. The restaurant has good service and good food. The room is comfy with good amenities. We always book in there.

"Good, clean, spacious hotel"

thorneta, Brisbane, Australia 29/08/2019

Everything that you would expect from a country hotel - well maintained and a good warm room. The no vacancy sign was up on a Wednesday night, which is always a good sign and the feed from the adjoining restaurant was quite good. There was seven of us in our crew and we all loved our dinner and breakfast options.

"Absolutely lovely"

lmanni409845, Wagga Wagga, Australia 29/07/2019

Our room was very modern and comfortable, clean and spacious, couldn't fault it. Service was above and beyond as we were tired and hungry, we were well looked after. Bathroom was beautiful and modern with lots of space.

"Modern and comfortable "

Vickers55, Cambridge, United Kingdom 22/07/2019

Nice room which had comfortable beds. Very hard sofa. Fridge useful but refer less extensive non bar. Good shower. Reasonable value. Modern decor means it could be anywhere. A bit lacking in soul. Ok lace to stay a night if adding through.

"Modern, clean and comfortable"

kr_afol, Brisbane, Australia 15/07/2019

We only stayed for one night but found the property to be in excellent condition and would stay there again. There appeared to be a good restaurant there, but as we didn't eat at it, I cannot comment further.


jrickus2017, Adelaide, Australia 04/07/2019

Best Western Goondiwindi is a first rate country Motel . We have stayed there on 6 occasions in last 4 years and can highly recommend this place for its high quality rooms , bedding , reataurant and overall serv

"One night on business at Ascot Lodge"

Phill_Driver, Caboolture, Australia 30/06/2019

Rooms are clean and in good condition. Has everything I need for a one night stay. Close to town, but not right in the middle of town. The restaraunt is very good. Has room service. Will definately stay here again.

"What a great place to break a journey"

Trevor B, Melbourne, Australia 28/06/2019

We have been staying here since 2004, they year have maintained the place in excellent as built condition, restaurant is great catering for many dietary requirements. The service is great from booking, check in, on site service and to check out. Covered parking is a plus as when it rains it sure does. The rooms are well appointed, shower about the best ever. The hosts are friendly a very welcoming place to stay.

"One of the best motels for its price - restaurant open on a Sunday"

OzjohnBrisbane, Brisbane, Australia 22/06/2019

I can understand why this property has a large number of positive reviews. Its refurbished rooms are well-presented, the bathroom is large and little things like an adequate shelf for soap etc is provided and the desk has a light above for those wanting to do some work (something that some rather new motels don't always have). The air-conditioning was quiet, under-cover vehicle parking provided and power points provided at the desk, although there could be some provided adjacent to the beds and bedside height. Customers have a multitude of devices these days that need charging. The wi-fi worked well and, as would be expected these days, was free. Little things like a choice of full-cream or trim milk at reception lift this motel above others. The restaurant is open seven days a week, something that is not common in country motels, especially in smaller centres. The 6.30 am breakfast start in the restaurant was appreciated as I had a reasonably early start. The evening meal at the Cascades restaurant, although from a limited weekend menu, was excellent and I was especially pleased to see that GF, Vegan and Vegetarian options are provided - something that is not always available or publicised in country motel restaurants. This lifts this restaurant's standard above many clubs and pubs. I paid $127.50 a night for my room which was a bargain for the accommodation standard. The same rooms can be at around $144 at busier times but that still represents excellent value for money. I had stayed at the Burke and Wills Motel at Moree a little earlier and was charged $150 a night for a room nowhere near the standard of the Best Western Goondiwindi. This seems to be a reasonable comparison when one when one considers that Moree's population is 7,300 while Goondiwindi's is 5,500 (2016 Census) There is just one thing: The "Cascades Restaurant" is not really publicised well on the motel website, in fact the only mention is "Restaurant on site" - no mention of its name or menu or that it is open seven days a week or the opening hours. There needs to be better integration of the restaurant publicity with the motel. The restaurant has its own identity but a visitor unfamiliar with Goondiwindi may not know of the link between the motel and the restaurant. The web site also mentions the motel is close to "NSW Government Offices" . Goondiwindi is in Queensland, not NSW. The nearest NSW Government Offices are in More, 124 km from Goondiwindi.

"Excellent Accommodation"

Joanne P, Bowral, Australia 16/06/2019

Enjoyed our stay in super clean, spacious room and big bathroom. Everything you need provided. Plus Cascades restaurant serves high quality a la carte breakfast. Amazing choices and fresh food. Even has espresso coffee. Staff were all very helpful and cheerful. Quiet and peaceful, parking at the door. Great place highly recommended.

"Friendly staff and clean rooms - good location just at end of main street"

paullV6791EL, Brisbane, Australia 15/06/2019

Motel staff were very friendly and helpful after is found i had to replace my car battery and staff provided me with details of who to contact. Rooms were clean and tidy with meals in restaurant of reasonable size and value. would recommend to stay here.

"Great place to stay in Goondiwindi"

User 13/06/2019

Great accommodation in Goondiwindi, 10 minute walk into Centre, once your day finished good place to stay, good sized rooms clean and well kept, restaurant was excellent, service good food better. Helpful staff. Stay here again.

"Large rooms and bathroom "

Anne N, macksvillle 11/06/2019

Staff are very friendly and accomodating - free wifi - great restaurant - very small swimming pool - clean room with easy access and only a ten minute walk to the gundy shopping centre - value for money

"Exceptionally friendly and comfortable , pleasant restaurant "

747normanw, Dalby, Australia 10/06/2019

After spending many trips in Brisbane having to either put my suitcase on the floor or the flimsy fold out stands it was a relief to see the cutout for my suitcase. The room also has a small lounge and coffee table, excellent so you do not feel like the bed is the only place to sit. The only fault I have with the room is a regular one of the coffee cups are small, larger mugs would be great. The bed is comfortable and if you do not want to go to the bar ( though happy hour is between 5 and 6 pm, there is a well stocked mini bar. There is room service at no extra charge. The restaurant offers a broad selection, a little above average price wise though I enjoyed the special of beef stroganoff, which had sufficient flavour and sauce. Dessert was a little light on for those of us with a nut allergy, though not on the menu I was given options. I chose the affogatto which is served with my choice of liquor and the drambuie worked a treat. Finished with a port I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. I recommend the motel and restaurant for its comfortable and friendly service and atmosphere.

"Excellent Accomodation Fantastic Meals Super Clean"

"Spot on"

mark2390, Narrabri, Australia 03/06/2019

Stayed overnight recently and it was a pleasant experience. Staff are friendly and helpful. Undercover parking, great sleep quality and modern room. Very good restaurant. Located on the highway which means its a drive to the main street

"Overnight stop over"

sue195316, Nowra NSW Australia 31/05/2019

the rooms a well appointed and very comfortable with everything that you need. Plenty of space and the bed was very comfortable the only thing missing was enough power points near the bed as my husband has a cpap machine and we found that there was not a power point near the bed for this purpose

"Clean, great staff, value for money"

M W, Adelaide, Australia 27/05/2019

The room was in great condition, the air con worked well and we had no issues whatsoever with any of the amenities. The staff were very friendly - a real highlight. We will definitely be staying here in future trips.

"High standards"

TravellerPete1475, Melbourne, Australia 25/05/2019

Returned again for a night in passing through town. Friendly welcome from Paul, efficient check in, and found my assigned room to be fresh and clean. Standards have definitely been maintained. I was tempted again by room service, and my tender steak was well cooked to order and delivered quickly. The rooms have everything this traveller wants for an overnight, including peace and quiet at night for good sleep. Bed was great, bathroom large and all things worked as they should. Will return next time through Goondiwindi.

"Clean and friendly"

Journey45327194075, Bathurst, Australia 04/05/2019

"Great Room Great Service"

9waynep, Toowoomba, Australia 28/04/2019

Stayed here for one night to attend a 70th birthday function. We received a friendly greeting at reception and were advised about the restaurant for dinner and breakfast. As we were attending a function at another venue we didn't take up the offer. The room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. There was well maintained under cover parking which was a bonus. When we mentioned to others where we were staying a number of locals advised that the restaurant was very good and we should try it when next in town. Will definitely stay here again.

"Modern, clean, a pleasure to stay"

User 26/04/2019

Very happy with room, child friendly, clean, modern and staff extremely helpful and welcoming. Restaurant very nice, plenty of choice and reasonably priced. We will definitely stay again, can't recommend this motel highly enough A++++

"A day out at Ascot!"

Victourer, Horsham, Australia 24/04/2019

We mark Ascot Lodge as a 'must stay' when we head to or from Brisbane to visit family. We are always happy to eat at the restaurant as there is great attentive, pleasant service and a lovely fresh meal. The room is always very clean and the bed comfortable.

"Delightful find"

Joanne R, Seaford, Australia 15/04/2019

Set back from the road so very quiet. Enjoyed happy hour after a long drive. Pool was clean and inviting. Spacious rooms and large shower. Very well presented .Very good on site restaurant made our stay even more enjoyable

"1 night stop over"

mum23all, Mount Gambier, Australia 15/04/2019

We stopped here after a long day driving, the gentleman at the front counter was very friendly and professional. We were given a choice of the room configuration that best suited us and went with an interconnecting room (family of 5), for $220. The rooms were a good size, both with 1 queen and 1 single bed and ensuite. He happily gave us a couple of extra milks for the children. We decided to order room service, and it was delivered in good time (compared to many other hotels we've stayed at!). The meals were delicious and we were most impressed! We had a load of washing to do, and despite being quite late - staff happily obliged and kept the laundry room open for us. We all had a good nights sleep, and checked out the following morning, We'd highly recommend this motel if your in the area or passing through, it's clean, comfortable and staff are welcoming and professional.

"Very clean room fantastic service."

User 13/04/2019

We found the listing for this place on a web search and decided by the pictures it was the better looking room compared to the others listed. Very clean and modern rooms, hot shower and clean amenities. We didn't get a chance to look around or use the pool due to late arrival. Fantastic front of house service.

"Good experience"

User 11/04/2019

A good location with a clean, modern unit with a lovely big bathroom with walk-in shower, comfortable bed, good lighting. Restaurant has excellent meals and breakfast. We would definitely stay here again.

"Work trip"

User 06/03/2019

Stayed here for two nights for work. Pleasantly surprised by the wonderful staff, the great menu and quality of food and comfortable rooms. A really great stay! Would definitely stay again and recommend to friends! Thank you for having us!

"Nice staff, handy location"

Iamsuperk, Brisbane, Australia 28/02/2019

Great option for a stop if driving the inland route from Melbourne - Brisbane. Staff were friendly - especially my German friend in the restaurant. I had an evening meal at the restaurant and that was also pretty decent. AC leaked after being on a while, otherwise no complaints.

"Super clean and modern motel"

150MarkE150, London, United Kingdom 24/02/2019

Stayed here 2 nights in Feb 2019 as part of an unscheduled road trip from the Gold Coast to escape tropical cyclone Oma. Weather was 35c and sunny, so that was very tempting to visit Goondiwindi,even tho I knew very little about the town beforehand. Motel rooms were immaculately clean and very modern. Everything you could need. I had a room with queen sized and single bed in it. Ideal for me and my friend. Big shower area with plenty of hot water at great pressure. Tea/coffee facilities in room too. They had a proper chef in restaurant so food was more than just your usual basic offerings. Small pool but motel was quiet at the weekend so was perfect to soak up the rays and have a dip to cool off. Only a mile from town so easy to walk there if you didn't want to drive. Friendly and helpful staff too. Covered parking outside your room. Definitely a great find and recommended 100% I actually really loved Goondiwindi as a town and especially my stroll along the Macintyre river.

"Excellent accommodation at Goondiwindi"

DHV2000, Singapore, Singapore 07/02/2019

Great stay, very pleasant accommodation and friendly staff. Rooms appear to have had a refurb since last stay and the Cascades dinning room is worth the visit with water cascading down the plate glass windows.

"Very pleasant surprise "

jodiea537, Gold Coast, Australia 19/01/2019

Loved our stay here, it was relaxing, quiet, the room and beds were clean and very comfortable. The meals in the restaurant were beautiful, and the staff were lovely! Will definitely stay here again. Well done.

This motel was a pleasant surprise. Nice, clean room with all the details to contribute to a pleasant stay and an interesting restaurant with water running over glass walls. Food is good. Staff are friendly and professional. Recommended.

BarbReid, Sunshine Coast, Australia 07/01/2019

The room was nicely furnished and extremely clean. Bedding was comfortable. Air conditioning worked well in the hot weather. The staff were friendly and a credit to this establishment. Food at the restaurant was excellent. The room was very quiet. I can highly recommend this motel and would be happy to stay again.

"Awesome Ascot"

Damian C, Canberra, Australia 07/01/2019

An excellent hotel staffed by courteous well trained and attentive staff. Very clean, modern, well appointed with very nice finishing touches. The restaurant is also excellent, with a surprisingly broad, thoughtful and affordable menu. Only one night but would readily have stayed for longer if time allowed. Well done!


mel1028, Melbourne, Australia 03/01/2019

We stayed here for one night when passing though Goondiwindi. Fabulous motel - very modern and exceptionally clean. The on site restaurant was of a very high standard and the staff were friendly and helpful.

"Very Clean"

HappyTimes42018, Caboolture, Australia 28/12/2018

Stayed in a 2 bedroom suite which was well set out and very clean. Small pool for a dip after a long day of driving. The second bedroom also had it's own air con and TV which was great for my 10 and 13 year old. Undercover parking outside your room. Restaurant meal was nice. Staff friendly.


Steve C, Runaway Bay, Australia 06/11/2018

The rooms have been so well planned that there's nothing to want; everything is in the best position for all your needs and 'everything' is in there. The food is excellent as are the Manager and Staff - thoroughly recommendable though a tad expensive.


User 21/10/2018

Lovely place to stay. Clean, quiet and feeling good. Well spaced rooms. Friendly staff. Have not tried the restaurant however, the menu looks good. Good care of the car space. Air conditioning is a must. Good wifi access.


Stewart M, Grovedale, Australia 07/10/2018

I spend on average 10 nights per month in motels over some 30 plus years. The Ascot would be in my top 2. Friendly staff, great meals & above all exceptionally clean & comfortable rooms. Parking is undercover in front of your room :)

"Very friendly, helpful and excellent motel"

User 02/10/2018

This place was a pleasure to stay in. Quiet, clean, friendly and excellent food on offer...with a freaky water window as well. Oh and happy hour as well. What's not to love? A one night visit while traveling and supplied the rest we needed. May have to go back just to stay again.

"Best Western Ascot Motel Goondiwindi Queensland"

Excellent hospitality, courtesy and care exhibited by all staff. It was a most enjoyable stay. The staff provided picnic lunches when required, outdoor Happy Hour experience and any variation of the standard menu/service that we requested.

great value for the money. very friendly and helpful staff. rooms are large and very clean.

Wi-fi was excellent as was tv reception. enjoyed the staff immensely.

"Goondiwindi Gold"

User 10/09/2018

What a gem of a find, my husband and I stayed in this motel on our way to Queensland. From the moment we entered into reception we were greeted by the friendly young staff who made our stay extremely pleasant. The modern rooms were exceptionally clean with a spacious bathroom, lovely furnishings and oh so comfortable bed. We dined in the motel restaurant and could not fault our meals at all, top marks to the chef and wait staff. Credit must be given to the great energetic young team who manage this motel as it's hard to find this type of service these days. My only gripe is that we didn't have more days to enjoy, we will definitely be returning on our next travels for more than an overnight stay.

"Pleasant Surprise"

Tina D, Adelaide, Australia 10/09/2018

Stopover on road trip, we were pleasantly surprised to receive a room upgrade and very impressed with our room, the hotel and the staff in reception. Our booking was correct at check in. Large room, large bathroom, with good shower and nice roomy vanity. WIFI average, but sufficient. Clean, neat, good towels and facilities. The only let down at this Hotel is the on site restaurant, which offered a lovely ambience, but the food at dinner was average and even worse at breakfast. Three items on a menu using the same risotto should have been a clue, but my Salmon was over cooked and did not have a nice crispy skin. My husbands Pork Belly was also not crispy and we felt both meals lacked seasoning. Our breakfast waitress did not seem to understand my request of a side of crispy cooked bacon and I received a plate of bacon that had not seen more than a few seconds on a hotplate. So, in all the Hotel itself is great, but the Restaurant on site needs improving.

"Great staff & restaurant"

JenJ1, Melbourne, Australia 03/09/2018

Very nice motel, very clean. Some guests can be thoughtless at all motels, they leave at some ungodly hour banging and crashing doors - no fault of the motel though! Staff were lovely. Restaurant served lovely food for dinner and a great breakfast at a good price. Good wifi

"Driving through"

FRANKG1207, Melbourne, Australia 19/08/2018

Staff excellent very helpful, room spacious, very clean and updated. Bathroom large and had a great shower. Easy to find just off main highway. We stayed here on our way up to Noosa and decided to stay again on the way back.

"Great location"

Debra A, Bonbeach 09/08/2018

Quiet location off the main road with restaurant and immaculate room. We enjoyed our stay, ate dinner in the restaurant and parking was right outside our room. Free wifi and a comfy bed with spacious bathroom.

"Top rate accommodation in Goodiwindi"

rpane13, Melbourne, Australia 30/07/2018

"Great choice of motel"

lexie d, Brisbane, Australia 29/07/2018

Can not fault this motel. Very clean. Friendly helpful staff, they cannot do enough for you. The restaurant food was great, we had barramundi and it was cooked to perfection. beds were very comfortable. Quiet location. Would definitely stay here again.

"Excellent for the region"

TravellerPete1475, Melbourne, Australia 28/07/2018

Second visit here in two years, and I found this motel still in very good shape. I got the last room, the family room at a very high price (for a solo traveller) but after a long drive I needed a place to stop. The room has very comfortable facilities, good bed and tv, microwave, lighting to read by, and the large clean bathroom with soaps etc. Undercover parking at the door is good, and little noise is heard from outside - and no heavy truck noise from the highway. There's a restaurant but didn't try it this visit. If travelling through here again, would choose this motel without hesitation.

"Very comfortable bed"

KingHilary, Gippsland 28/07/2018

We stayed inroom 12. Same as the last time through. We try to stop here because of the great rest we get. Friendly staff and very comfortable bed. It is a bit more expensive than our usual motel stop, but we think it is worth it.

Excellent Motel, Clean , excellent value Excellent Food & drinks Well set out resort, great pool , clean. Tidy pool area, quite location. Quite nights with no traffic noise. Great quality food in the restaurant

"Comfortable and accommodating"

RadishTas, Tasmania 15/07/2018

We stayed here for one night, having booked through one of Trip Advisors booking partners. We had a response from lastminute.com stating we had booked a Queen room including breakfast. When we got to the motel, the young chap in reception was non-plussed as he said that the motel never offers included breakfast. However,after he consulted the manager, the motel honoured the booking. We were very impressed (particularly as our breakfasts were beyond delicious). Not being on the highway we had a nice quiet night, apart from the serial car door slamming of one of our fellow guests; nothing to do with the motel, just lack of consideration from said guests. The bed was very comfortable, and the room spotlessly clean. The staff were friendly and professional. Thoroughly recommend this motel

"Great service and comfortable "

DreamtimeTravel_Ange, Brisbane, Australia 04/07/2018

Was time for a rest on our family road trip and we stopped here to check availability and the gentleman on reception was so friendly and professional and was able to accommodate two rooms for us near each other. The rooms and bathrooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The beds so soft and comfy. The boys went for a swim in the pool while my daughter and I relaxed in our room. We ordered room service for brekky for the next morning and it arrived on time and was very delicious. Then we hit the road again.

"On the road"

SuzanneLee, Kings Beach 02/07/2018

What a fantastic place to stay ! We had excellent service and questions answered by Stefan at the front desk to Jack & Charlotte in the Dining room. My husband had a misunderstanding with his Linguine Carbonara as he does not eat mushrooms and it actually wasn't stated on the menu. No problems, they exchanged his meal straight a away, no questions asked. There was quite an extensive menu which all looked very inviting. We were very impressed with the style & set out of the dining room. Our family room (Queen and single bed) was very comfortable with all amenities which we felt were above standard. We did not use other facilities at the motel ie pool etc as we only stayed a night and it was ‘winter'!! Many Thanks Best Western Goondiwindi ??????????????

"Value for money "

User 15/06/2018

Booked at the last minute and was very surprised with the facilities. The room was clean and tidy. No noise from the highway heard. We ordered coffee in the morning and it was delivered quickly and was good quality. Would stay here again.

"Excellent accommodation"

Rob L, Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, Australia 14/06/2018

I was impressed by the Ascot Lodge in Goondiwindi. It is a reasonably new motel, the rooms are spacious and very well designed and it is quiet (no noise from trucks). The staff were all knowledgable and most helpful. They helped make my stay in Goondiwindi a very enjoyable one.

"Great accommodation"

User 30/05/2018

I enjoy staying at Ascot Lodge when visiting Goondiwindi. The rooms are clean, quiet and comfortable with undercover car parking. The on-site restaurant serves delicious dinners, breakfasts and coffee. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. Thank you for another great stay, I look forward to staying here again.

"Very comfortable"

Afonso A, Lima / Cusco 23/05/2018

Good room, nice staff, very friendly. Breakfast with lot of options, I missed coffee, there was just coffee sachets. Since this is a small and cozy town the location ia just 10 min walk from downtown. I strongly recommend .

"Extremely comfortable and clean"

Bronte_Z92, Canberra, Australia 21/05/2018

We stayed one night while passing through, we had no troubles and enjoyed our stay. We had dinner room service and the food was perfect. We would stay again in an instant. I would ask them to upgrade the hair dryers but that is just nit picking.

"Fantastic stay"

emmatunney, Brisbane, Australia 17/05/2018

Everything was prefect, clean, comfy bed, quite, food was amazing i had both breakfast and dinner here. I stay at alot of Best Westerns and have found this one the best so far, Only place to stay in Goondiwindi

"Top quality in all respects"

N0madOne, Canberra, Australia 09/05/2018

I congratulate the young staff at this motel. They were all very professional, thorough, careful and courteous, and know their jobs. Our room was very comfortable and a generous size with a very accessible bathroom. We faced an arterial road but it was very quiet in the room and we were not disturbed at all. Access and exit to/from the motel is simple. Check in/out was simple and easy. Dinner in the restaurant was top quality, beautifully presented and superbly cooked. I was impressed that the manager sought me out to ask about food allergies and make sure I would be catered for. Breakfast was a hot/cold buffet with enough choices for everybody and plenty to give you a good start to the day. We would happily stay here again. The motel is in a quiet spot but within walking distance (10-15 minutes depending on your speed) to the town centre.

Could not fault Ascot Lodge Motor Inn, Goondiwindi - great service every time we stay, food is a high standard and reasonable price. Great rooms that are clean and tidy every time. Internet was fast and no problems with connecting.

"Excellent hotel, highly recommend"

Flexible check in available. We didn't arrive until midnight and we were still able to access our room by phoning ahead. The rooms are modern, large bathroom and room in general, comfortable bed. We had dinner and breakfast at the cascades restaurant and it was delicious.


Merv J, Batemans Bay, New South Wales, Australia 28/04/2018

Easy assess from the Newell Hway with ample parking,RV parking across the road if needed I park our showroom truck near my room thats how good it is so thanks Paul and staff.

"Goondiwindi Gold"

ShanS21, TOLGA, QLD 25/04/2018

Stumbled onto this hotel after reading the reviews whilst doing a road trip through central Qld . Cannot find one fault with this hotel or the staff/managers . We got in quite late but nothing was too much trouble and the meal in the restaurant was tops.....better than the usual pub grub and reasonable prices . Rooms are big, modern and with spacious bathrooms , parking outside and super clean . We forgot to order breakfast and the manageress brought toast and coffee over to our room as we were leaving as a favour . Manager/owner is a local and was friendly and helpful as to the old places etc we were trying to find. This hotel is a treasure and one of the best we encountered in central Qld . Make sure you overnight here if stopping in Goondiwindi.

Excellent motel, friendly staff & beautiful room. Easy access to Newell Highway & Cunningham Highway. We really enjoyed our dinner with the staff catering to my food intolerances. Well worth the 41/2 stars

"Accommodation and restaurant beat expectations"

LaCassaigne, La Cassaigne, France 01/04/2018

Usually after a 10-hour drive you are happy to just stop, anywhere! Imagine our delight to find friendly, efficient staff, undercover parking, a spacious clean room, and a smart restaurant. This motel is on the edge of town and set back from the highway so it is is relatively quiet. But this location means it is too far to walk into town to a restaurant. Fortunately, the Cascades restaurant which is part of the motel has good ambience, helpful staff, a good selection of dishes and a modestly priced wine list. This was one of our top three dinners in a 3-week road trip. Recommended.

"Brilliant, just brilliant. Modern, clean and secure"

User 23/03/2018

What a brilliant accommodation, super friendly staff, modern room and undercover parking. After experiencing a previous accommodation during in my three-week road trip the Best Western Ascot was a lovely find and superb place to rest after travelling for 8 hours a day on motorways. The room was modern and clean, with a super comfortable bed. The shower was modern and refreshing to use with a lot of space in the shower. The staff were super friendly and welcoming and made checking in and out easy and hassle free, thanks. All in all, if this is the standard I can expect from Best Western then I'm sold on using Best Western for future travels. Many thanks for an enjoyable stay.

"Great little motor inn"

Oz4, Brisbane, Australia 20/03/2018

Spacious, clean and well furnished rooms with good linens. Well stocked minibar with bonus real milk for the coffee! Decent restaurant and bar area, although our breakfast took a little too long during their peak at 7.45am. A little way from the Main Street/downtown area - probably a bit too far to work. A very pleasant stay.

"Best Western Goondiwindi "

Sallie_Dee, Narromine, Australia 16/03/2018

An overnight stay only here but it was a clean, comfortable and quiet motel. Very friendly staff at check in, well equipped and good sized room. Pool was just what was needed after a day travelling. Very reasonably priced ($119).

"Clean, stylish, friendly, convenient"

User 13/03/2018

We are a middle aged couple who needed a place to stop for the night and this place is exceptional. the service was friendly, check in was quick and pain free. The rooms were presented very well and were compfy. The restaurant was nice - we had chorizo and prawn linguini and a chicken parma, both left us feeling satisfied. We both would highly recommend this hotel.

"Great renovated rooms"

robdN1976RW, Adelaide, Australia 10/03/2018

"Ascot is the place to stay"

User 05/02/2018

We had a wonderful stay at The Ascot. Rooms are immaculate and very comfy bed. New menu at Cascades Restaurant had us wishing we were staying longer. Staff can't do enough for you.. all in all... excellent!!!

"Best best western!"

User 02/02/2018

We had a great stay at the Best Western Ascot Lodge Motor Inn. The rooms were modern, very clean and very reasonably priced. The restaurant had a brand new menu with fantastic food for dinner and breakfast. Very friendly staff overall too. Undercover parking was also a bonus.

"Overnight Stay"

User 20/01/2018

We were travelling with a loaded trailer. Reception was very helful with providing a secure parking space. The room was clean comfortable and well appointed. Value for money was excellent. All round good place to stay.

"Lovely Motor Inn!"

TLJ571, Melbourne, Australia 12/01/2018

We stayed here for one night on our journey from Melbourne to Brisbane. The staff at the front desk were very friendly and our room was modern and clean. The kids loved the pool after a long day in the car. A very pleasant, quiet motel with its own restaurant. We would definitely stay here again.

"Neat rooms and comfy beds"

User 05/01/2018

Feature Highlights: - late check in until 9pm (this was very handy as we checked in at 8:15pm) - friendly staff and very helpful - nice pool - extremely comfy queen sized bed - good bathroom and shower with good water pressure - mini bar - air con Note: we didn't end up eating here so can't comment on food

"Pick of Goondiwindi overnighters"

Suzi M, Brisbane, Australia 24/12/2017

Nice clean rooms, lovely restaurant with a kids menu. To our delight there was a lovely pool which had just been cleaned and was sparkling, fresh and at a goldilocks temperature. Whilst splashing about, some of the other guests said this hotel was their favourite choice for accom in the area. An iconic dust storm blew though in the afternoon which must be a blight for the locals but amazing experience for first time travellers to the area. The staff were lovely too boot. It's just out of the centre of town, but was quick to get in for a 7am breakfast at the cute local cafe, The Larder, before heading on for the next leg of the trip.

"Overall good motel"

LPNOOSA, Noosa, Australia 09/12/2017

Stayed one night as we have stayed before. The only complaint I had was the bottom sheet on the bed was too small and therefore couldn't be tucked in. So every time you rolled over the sheet would bunch up under you. The room size is good and the bathroom and shower was excellent with plenty of hot water and a good shower Rose. Very important for the other half. Aircon worked well Forgot to take our togs unfortunately as the pool looked clean and inviting after a long drive. The Restaurant did a great breakfast and coffee. Would definitely stay again.

"Best meal and accommodation "

Martin B, Brisbane, Australia 28/11/2017

New menu and its fantastic plus the service was a pleasure. The rooms are very well presented and maintained. Close enough to the centre of town but far enough to be quite and no road noises from the trucks. Great place for the kid with a lovely pool . This motel always has a high standard of service .

"Road trip western Queensland"

Marshall R, Brisbane, Australia 26/11/2017

This motel was a complete surprise. I stay in a lot of motels in my job ad this place was an absolute pleasure. The staff were all friendly and obliging. I had dinner and breakfast in the motel restaurant and both meals were very good. The room was very spacious, the bed was very comfortable and free wifi was a real bonus

"Quality accommodation, well appointed - great for a short stay"

AllanKearney, Mooloolaba, Australia 25/11/2017

Lovely, clean well appointed rooms, just what we needed after a long drive. Great night's sleep, followed by an excellent breakfast in the restaurant in the morning. Courteous, friendly, professional staff. A short walk to pubs and restaurants. Will be staying here on our next trip through Goondiwindi.

"Perfect for our one night stay"

Tibbycat13, Holbeach, United Kingdom 26/10/2017

My husband and I stayed for one night on Saturday 7th October. When we checked in we were told that there would be a large group using the restaurant that evening and if we were thinking of food to order room service. This we did at no extra charge. The cost of the meal was excellent and the amount of food was large and thoroughly enjoyable. Our room was large and comfortable. It was perfect for our one night stay en route south. The gentleman on the desk the next morning was very helpful and answered all our questions. Would recommend a stay here.

"Modern Great Service"

djuros2017, Sydney, Australia 18/10/2017

From the call I received while en route to the warm welcome once in town - it was a great stay. Great rooms. Good size for working e.g. computers etc. Internet service pretty good. Parking is a bit tight but other than that - excellent.

"Fresh new motel"

helen23504, Brisbane Region, Australia 15/10/2017

We stayed in a standard double motel room. It is a new modern motel so it is clean, good size bathroom. Location on out skirts of town centre, however we ate at the restaurant which was a lovely meal for dinner and breakfast. Would stay again.


Silverfox W, Echuca, Australia 08/10/2017

Food and accommodation was fantastic. The moment you arrived you where greeted with a smile. The room was clean. The bed was comfortable and the restaurant food was great. Haven't stay anywhere better. Thank you

"Consistently very good"

Tanya T, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia 05/10/2017

I've previously reviewed this motel, and have now stayed 5 times over the last two or so years. It is always immaculately clean, of modern presentation and the room and bathroom are generously sized. The manager Paul is very hospitable and professional, and the restaurant is genuinely good. They have vegetarian and gluten free options that are excellent. I'll be staying again next time I'm travelling through Goondiwindi.

"A must stay motel"

376sherylv, Gympie, Australia 05/10/2017

Ascot Lodge Motor Inn is a cut above all other motels. Rooms are clean and very comfortable. The staff were very friendly. It is situated away from the highway and there is no traffic noise. Love Cascades Restaurant. Overall presentation of this motel is very, very good.

"South-West Explorer"

Peter H, Brisbane Region, Australia 01/10/2017

Motel was adequate for 1 night stay. Room and beds were comfortable and clean. Breakfast the next morning was poor. Inexpereinced waitstaff and poorly presented food was very disappointing. Will eat elsewhere if there is a next time


Clare W, sunshine coast 20/09/2017

We booked Best western to finish off a long motorbike trip expecting something flash, its ok but not worth $50-$60 extra compared to the motels down the road nearer to town we paid $171 for mon night. Rooms and bathroom were large and modern and the bed comfortable we had a good nights sleep. We checked in mid afternoon and our room was next to a fence dividing us from a commercial yard not very relaxing listening to hydraulic tools working next to your room. Its a 15min walk to town (not much shade) where you can get a good meal at the historic pub or Chinese restaurant. Don't think its that upmarket for the price you pay next time will stay in the town for less.

"Highlight of our trip was the night spent at the Ascot Lodge"

Michelle M, Brisbane, Australia 14/09/2017

Fantastic. The room was big, clean, well appointed, comfortable bed, huge bathroom, hot shower and the staff were excellent. We decided that we would try the restaurant based on the room and the menu - best choice as the meals were sensational, the atmosphere was fantastic and the service impeccable. Best steak ever had in an Australian restaurant, on par with the steaks served in Texas. Fine dining is the best description. Even breakfast was awesome, the offerings were varied and the menu had some more original offerings than the standard bacon & eggs. Highly recommend.

"Great stay!"

hellok3lly, Melbourne, Australia 04/09/2017

Stayed in the family room! Great facilities and super comfy beds. Could of done with some large plates and bowls for our own use but made do with buying disposable ones! Welcoming and very helpful staff. Will recommend!

"Spacious & Enjoyable"

Maz027_13, Melbourne, Australia 01/09/2017

We were very impressed with Best Western Ascot Lodge Motor Inn. All staff we had contact with were friendly and professional. We particularly liked the spacious Bathroom as often motel bathrooms are far too small. Another bonus was the great water pressure and instant hot water in the shower. Also the room was spacious and very clean with contemporary decor. This was the most modern BW motel we stayed at during our 3 weeks away. The bed was very comfortable. Also, we did not have a disturbed sleep as it was very quiet at night. Having a restaurant on-site is a plus as after a long day's drive, it is just perfect to walk a few metres to where you will have your dinner. Cascades Restaurant serves 'yummy ' food and the servings are a generous size and certainly good value for money . We definitely recommend staying here.

"Smart room"

Arkward4552, Sunshine Coast, Australia 28/08/2017

Very good value, clean and spacious. Mattress too soft and past its best before. Typical American style chain motel aimed at the commercial traveller headed for the minibar. Restaurant on-site is good and convenient.

"Great country hospitality."

Donna F, Brisbane, Australia 14/08/2017

Super friendly & helpful staff. The room was spotless and the bed very comfy. Lots of little extra touches that made it that much better. We stayed in a front room, but it was not noisy. In fact, we enjoyed sitting on the bench outside the room and watching the world go by. Dinner and breakfast in the restaurant was thoroughly enjoyable.

"Clean comfy country hospitality"

Joan B, Brisbane, Australia 13/08/2017

We arrived from Brisbane on a Friday evening - greeted by friendly reception staff and directed to our well appointed room. So pleased we had made a prior reservation in their beautiful dining room and we weren't disappointed.

"Great room. "

susiplonsker, Melbourne, Australia 10/08/2017

My husband and I spent a night on our road trip, great value, big modern, clean room. The bed was very comfortable. Car parked outside our room undercover and there was a seat for my husband to have a smoke.

"Excellent stopover "

907mandye, Lyndhurst, Australia 04/08/2017

Very friendly & accommodating staff. Rooms very clean and tastefully decorated. Room service good quality and arrived warm. Free WiFi and Foxtel available. Not too far from the Main Street, easy access to all ammenities

"Very comfortable with an excellent restaurant onsite"

MatthewJames2009, Sydney 29/07/2017

Used this motel as a stopover on the way to the Gold Coast travelling from Canberra. The room was clean and comfortable with covered car accommodation outside the room. Staff members in both reception and the restaurant were friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant was excellent and there was a reasonable wine selection to choose from. Prices for food, wine and accommodation were reasonable. All up, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

"A little gem of a hotel"

Sandy B, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia 26/07/2017

Loved this hotel. Staff were excellent. Room was spotlessly clean and well looked after. Easy to get to hotel. Had room service at night and food was wonderful and cheaper than if you went to the dining room and had it. Hotels in town were more expensive for the same meals. Had breakfast in the dining room in the morning before we set off. Omelettes were to die for. One of the best we had ever tasted. Would definitely stay again

"Canberra trip"

User 08/07/2017

Great place to stay nice room clean and roomy bath room was huge friendly staff well dressed and polite and very helpfulll I would recommend people travelling to goondawindi to stay for the night it's well worth the money

"Very nice motel"

James C, Port Macquarie, Australia 03/07/2017

A very clean, nice and modern motel. Warm welcome on arrival, we stayed in room 3 which was excellent with a very impressive bathroom area but it looked like all the rooms would be equally impressive. Good facilities in the room. The motel has a dining room with a good menu. Very nice place for an overnight stay.

"Par Excellence"

Harrydubya, Canberra, Australia 30/06/2017

Stayed at the Ascot Lodge Motor Inn on our return from Qld to Canberra last month. We have stayed here a few times before, and this experience was the same as the previous ones, in other words, excellent. The rooms are well laid out, spotlessly clean and very comfy beds. Just want you need after six hours on the road. Again, we dined at the motel's " Cascades " restaurant and what a dinner. I had loin of lamb, cooked to perfection ( medium as I asked ) and served on a bed of chived mash, with cherry tomatoes, and the most wonderful jus. My wife had the home made pasta with seafood. Both meals were rated 10 out of 10. This restaurant beats most capital city restaurants around the country. All the staff were friendly and this place is the total package. Fantastic !!!

"Best Western Ascot is the best!"

christinemsl, Armidale, Australia 23/06/2017

The Best Western Acsot is a motel I would definitely return to. Lovely room with an extremely comfortable bed and very clean. Excellent service from the friendly and helpful staff, reliable and fast internet. Room service was excellent and the meals were very good and reasonably priced.The breakfasts were a stand out and the crispy salmon for dinner was true restaurant quality. Top marks to this motel!

"Good place to stay"

southaussie05, Melbourne, Australia 21/06/2017

Close to highway, good clean rooms, great bed and bathroom, good restaurant, moderately priced but wide ranging menu, friendly staff. Had a problem with my internet booking but reception rectified it quickly.

"Very good overnight stay"

TravellerPete1475, Melbourne, Australia 17/06/2017

Pulled in to this slightly older style motel after a long day travelling. Easy check in, best of all the room was fresh, clean and nicely updated. Very good size, clean, and modern bathroom; good comfy bed and big tv. A fairly good sized room, with undercover parking at the door. Decided to have room service dinner. It took about 20 mins, and my filet steak was one of the best I've had in a long time! Well done to the motel restaurant! Wasn't in Goondi long enough to look around, but my overnight rest here was first rate. Highly recommended, reasonable price.

"Great motel in Goondiwindi"

janbU4086NJ, Brisbane, Australia 14/06/2017

After a long trip from Lighning Ridge it was a pleasure to check into this motel. Rooms were large and nicely furnished with a large bathroom. Beds and pillows were really comfortabel. Our group also had dinner at the motel and the food and service was terrific. Would definitely stay there again.

"Pleasant hotel."

Jancye W, Canberra, Australia 09/06/2017

We stopped here for 2 nights. The room was very clean and very quiet as you are on the outskirts of town. Internet is fast and free. There were 3 of us and we had a queen and single bed with plenty of room.

"Never again!"

justjess234, Brisbane, Australia 27/05/2017

I stayed on Saturday night. At 9am there was someone banging on my door demanding I move my car. I moved it straight away hoping to be left alone to some peace and quiet but unfortunately that's when they started with the power tools right outside my room. I know maintenance is unavoidable but a heads up when I checked in would have been nice or alternatively starting work after 10am check out would also work!

Joel W, General Manager at Best Western Ascot Lodge Motor Inn, responded to this review
Dear "justjess234" Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. I am terribly sorry to learn of your experience on the day of your departure. Indeed, car park maintenance was scheduled to take place on this morning, however not until 10am as previously arranged between myself and the contractor. I am very disappointed to learn that this was not adhered to as we take the comfort and privacy of every guest very seriously. Rest assured I have taken strict measures to ensure that this will not happen again including personally greeting each and every contractor visiting the motel. I do hope you give us another chance to provide you with the superior service we strive to achieve for all of our guests and invite you to contact me directly when next in Goondiwindi. Once again, thank you for your review. Kind Regards, Joel Wright General Manager

"Friendly and comfortable"

JillDV8, Brisbane, Australia 26/05/2017

Lovely little motel situated on the outskirts of town. Clean room, modern bathroom, large rooms with couch and table and desk area, comfortable bed, free wifi that didn't drop out once. The fellow who checked me in was friendly and helpful with information and brochures. Reasonable rate - what more could you want for a one night stopover. We had room service breakfast that was well above what we expected - a pleasant surprise.

"Well Above Average"

Seagullz, Launceston, Australia 18/05/2017

From the moment we arrived we knew this was a gem. Very pleasant staff at reception with helpful advice about the facilities. The room was modern, very well equipped, spotlessly clean and the bathroom was spacious. Enough room to store our luggage in there as well. At night we ate in the restaurant off the optional set menu. It was well priced and the food was good. Make sure you eat in as it is a lovely restaurant. All in all a top place to stay and very quiet at night.

"Better than average. "

ballantrae2, Canberra, Australia 18/05/2017

Overnight stop enroute from Canberra to Glasshouse Mountains. Very good rate for 3 adults in a single room. Spacious and very clean room. 15min walk to town centre or a couple of minutes in a car. We used the room service menu and ate in. Very good food and not expensive.

"very comfortable room and great restaurant"

Julie L, Brisbane, Australia 11/05/2017

Very comfortable queen size bed and large bathroom with great shower. Air conditioner works very well , so I was nice and cool. Large room with lots of wardrobe space . The restaurant attached was really good. We enjoyed our dinner especially with the raining waterfall on the outside of the glass walls. Large serves of food well cooked and presented . Would definitely stay here again

"Don't get a room with a joining door"

Matt F, Brisbane, Australia 06/05/2017

Fist Night was fine, food was great, service was good, room was fine. second night a woman and her kids turned up late, the room 25 has a door to join to room 26 the door is too thin and you can hear the people talking in the next room like the door was not there at all. worst night I have had in a long time. I asked for another room but was told there was none. but there was empty car parks so im not sure if that was true.

Joel W, General Manager at Best Western Ascot Lodge Motor Inn, responded to this review
Dear "Matt F" Thank you for taking the time to review your recent experience with us. It is great to hear that you enjoyed the room, food and service during your stay - the comfort and satisfaction of all guests is our number one priority. I am terribly sorry to learn of the loud noise you had encountered during your second night with us. There are actually two doors in between our interconnecting rooms and though this is usually very effective in blocking noise pollution, I can understand this is not always the case when staying next door to a family with young children. I also apologise for not being able to move you to another room on this night. Unfortunately most of Goondiwindi, including Best Western, were fully booked due to the recent Annual Boarding School Exhibition held by the town. Your satisfaction is important to us and we will be using the feedback you gave us to implement improvements to ensure we offer a better experience for guests in the future. I hope that you will consider staying with us again so that we can have another chance to provide you with a superior experience. Kind Regards, Joel Wright General Manager


acpcbr, Gungahlin, Australia 01/05/2017

Staying at Ascot Lodge for one night on our way north to Bundaberg. My wife has a broken leg so we stayed in the disabled room. This room was a reasonable size and in a clean & modern condition, what you would expect for a usual standard of motel room. Joel (Manger) was very helpful and the dinner in Cascades Restaurant can be recommended. (Scallops & Lamb Rump) Would recommend it to others. Will stay there the next time we pass through Goondi.

"The Mudgeeraba Showgirls are very Impressed "

We are a group of 4 Show representatives from Mudgeeraba ( Gold Coast) We spent a night at the best western for the Goondiwindi Show Dinner. We were very impressed with our whole experience at the Best Western. 5 Stars for * size of room * parking * cleanliness * room presentation * faculties *service We will definitely be back Thank you for having us :)

"Not Value for Money"

AlexC451, Rome, Italy 27/04/2017

Whilst the motel has a good appearance and strives to match the more up-market motels found in our major cities it is annoying that you have to put up with 'free wireless' that does not work. I would much rather they charge for a service that works. In short come here for the comfort and quality of accommodation but not if you are thinking you are going to not have to use your phone as a local hotspot to prop up the poor wireless that is on offer.

Joel W, General Manager at Best Western Ascot Lodge Motor Inn, responded to this review
Dear "AlexC451" Thank you for reviewing your recent stay with us. It is always great to be compared to up-market motels found in our major cities, you're right, we certainly do strive to match this standard each and every day. I am truly disappointed to hear of your experience with our WiFi connection during your stay. This is certainly not typical of the usual strong connection throughout the entire property and I will be investigating this on-site and also directly with our Internet Service Provider to ensure that any possible faults are repaired immediately. Thank you for bringing this to my attention and I do hope to see you return in the future. Yours Sincerely, Joel Wright

"Just out of town"

Linda D, Rutherford, Australia 25/04/2017

Stayed here for 2 nights and found it very comfortable and clean. Room was a reasonable size with a queen bed and a 2 seater lounge. A small coffee table and plenty of shelf storage . The bathroom was a decent size and very clean.Undercover parking which was great as it was still quite warm. There is a restaurant and bar available although we didn't avail ourselves of this facility.. Just a little out of town but, if you feel like a pleasant walk on flat ground there is a footpath all the way into town ( about 10min comfortable walk ).. The downside unfortunately was that the motel is next to a small industrial area and at times it was quite noisy with loud machinery noises .. This was only during the day ....... All in all I would recommend this motel if you're staying in Goondiwindi .

"Stop Over "

Tammy P, Mildura, Australia 22/04/2017

Great accommodation, stopped there on our way to our holiday destination an again on our way home. Rooms are a good size an are very clean an modern an comfy beds. Great WiFi. We also had room service for tea both times and the meals where good very generous serving sizes too. Will stay there again ;)

"Quiet Motel on outskirts of town"

zeacie, Lismore, Australia 20/04/2017

Stayed here last minute while on a road trip, rooms are small but comfortable. Bathroom is quite large and airy. Had dinner and breakfast at Cascades Restaurant. All our meals were good sized servings and everyone was really happy with the quality. The Motel is on the outskirts of town.


aljr2017, Brisbane Region, Australia 18/04/2017

I don't think any of the pictures on the wall hung straight. The foot under the toilet seat was broken and grotty. The couch had no rear cushions so was not so comfy. The shower pipes made a hideous noise that would've been heard a room or 2 away. A room way below my normal standard. In Goondiwindi we usually pay a little over half what this place cost, and we're more impressed with rooms. We were caught out having no reservation when contracting work crews were also in town. When I pay so much, I don't expect ANY disappointment. To have a number of faults, I felt like I'd been robbed.

"Comfortable "

David W, Brisbane, Australia 11/04/2017

Good check-in. Easy access. Comfortable room. Nice beds. Didn't try the restaurant but the menu. looked good. Staff courteous. Good location. No traffic noise. Large bathroom. Air-conditioning was quiet

"Great friendly service"

User 10/04/2017

We have stayed here a number of times on our way through Goondiwindi. The family rooms are great, rooms are clean, room service and restaurant meals are fantastic. The staff are friendly and very helpful, they even take the time to answer multiple repetitive toddler questions. Always our top choice.

"Delicious meals & desserts"

Trent S, Echuca, Australia 03/04/2017

After a long day of driving enjoyed a delicious family meal at Cascades. Kids thoroughly enjoyed the kids tasting plate for 2 - right up their alley; chips, frankfurts, meatballs, chicken, spring rolls. The pumpkin soup was described as very tasty. The steak was devine, cooked as requested and very tender. Barramundi with vegetables was tremendous - very good gluten free options. Desserts were very well received- kids sundae was huge whilst for the adults the creme broulee was extremely smooth. Affogato was awesome. Throughout the evening the service was friendly and attentive. Highly recommend

"Ideal for two night stay"

elms2016, Toowoomba, Australia 27/03/2017

We were quite comfortable staying at Ascot Lodge. Rooms just right and up to the usual standard of motel rooms. Staff very helpful and the breakfast is so good in the beautiful Cascades Restaurant. Definitely recommend it to others. There is also a pool so don't forget your togs (we did).

"Small rooms"

OskarandSunny, Gold Coast 25/03/2017

This place is a little out of town, around 2 k. We were disapointed with the room size . The rooms are beautifully decorated but this does not compensate for the small size .The bed is comfortable but only a double. Anything bigger would not fit in the room. The small,couch is a nice touch. The motel is out of town in an industrial area so quite a lot of noise during day time.

"A Perfect Rest"

MelFischer, Noosa, Australia 23/11/2016

We stayed here for our 3rd time on a long road trip to Victoria . We stayed in a family room the beds were very comfortable and the rooms were very modern . We had a beautiful dinner in the restaurant after a long day on the road and the food was amazing. The best place to stay for a refresh and a great rest .

"Quiet Oasis"

Robyn F, Redcliffe, Australia 22/11/2016

My father and I stayed for 3 nights in a 2 bedroom suite. The suite was beautifully furnished and spacious with all amenities. The beds were very comfortable. The motel is only 1km from the town centre in a quiet area. The staff were very friendly, and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

"Great stay"

leonieh316, Canberra, Australia 16/11/2016

Lovely hotel, bed and pillows were extremely comfy and staff were very welcoming. Would recommend this motel to anyone. meals were very plentiful and freshly cooked. Next time we are passing through this will Be where will stay

"Very comfortable"

User 15/11/2016

Enjoyed a 2 night stay at this motel, room was great, and the reception staff were very attentive. Pool a little small, and when a few kids are playing it was not welcoming for an adult to go and cool off. And the parking spaces are extremely tight. But, everything else was excellent. Didn't get to try out the restaurant. maybe next time.

"Comfortable & Convenient"

BuderimDiner, Buderim 12/11/2016

We have enjoyed accommodation here a number of times. Our room was spacious, clean, comfortable and quite modern. Our shower had inadequate pressure and this was not experienced on past visits. The restaurant offers a good menu of quality food. The service this time was poor for both dinner and breakfast - dinner being incorrect choice delivered after a long wait (had to start again) and breakfast of cereal only took half an hour for delivery and we were the only ones attending breakfast. Interested to see with our next visit whether service has returned to past levels.

"Excellent value for money and a really good restaurant"

Tanya T, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia 02/11/2016

Genuinely good value for money, and nice, modern accommodation. The restaurant is a real gem. The chef uses excellent produce, and turns it out very well. I was very pleasantly surprised with just how good the food was. Nice waiting staff, and Paul the Manager is a real gentleman and great with local advice.


Mick2872, Mackay 23/10/2016

What a little gem. We were on our way through to Moree NSW and stayed here after a long day on the road. The rooms were amazing, the food was fantastic and the service was great. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here if we have the opportunity again.

"Best hotel I have stayed in all year"

Jeanette M, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia 17/10/2016

Staff are friendly and helpful. food was well priced and very yummy. I had dinner and breakfast here and loved the meals. The bed was the best I have slept in ever. I think I will buy one for home very soon. Overall it was the best 1 night stay and I stay in a lot of hotels all year.

"Great accommodation and Great Service "

Ianpet, Brisbane, Australia 16/10/2016

Stayed 3 nights. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Rooms very quiet and well appointed. Restaurant attached serves fabulous food. Out friends staying at the same time share our feelings. We will be back.

"Comfortable short stay :)"

User 08/10/2016

We were very happy with our room - clean and tidy, modern with a large comfortable bed. Not a huge room, but for a couple it's ideal. Complimentary milk is available from reception, which was much appreciated. We ate in the attached restaurant, and were very happy with the service and the meals. We also had a delicious breakfast delivered to our room - try the breakfast wrap! :) Can be a bit noisy when residents in other units are talking outside their rooms, but everyone was considerate and retired at a reasonable hour. Would definitely stay again.

Merv J, Batemans Bay, New South Wales, Australia 07/10/2016

Great venue,rooms spotless and friendly and fast staff in both dinning room an reception just what we needed after a long long day.Prices were ok (horses for courses) perfect all round including meals,parking especially with our large vehicle so in saying that I would have no hesitation in recomending this venue to friends and family.

"Great overnight stay"

Mink_Star, Australia 02/10/2016

Service We needed a late check in and they were very accommodating. When we arrived after our 5 hour drive they were very quick checking us in. They had turned on the heater in our room ready for when we arrived! :) Room and amenities We had a queen size bed and a single bed. The beds were very comfortable! The room was great, clean and with modern features. The bathroom was huge and they also provided MOR products. Location It was perfect for us as we were only staying for the night and it was close to the highway, but not that close that you could hear traffic.

"First class"

dc8-63, Queensland, Australia 25/09/2016

Great, spotless family room, big bathroom, efficient service, super restaurant dinner, room service if wanted, free wifi - couldn't want for more after a long drive. We stayed one night but would have been happy if longer required. Definitely recommend.

"Great place to stay a night"

nimisaya, Brisbane, Australia 18/09/2016

Service: Staff friendly and fast. Quickest checkin/checkout. Sorted rooms next to each other for our group of 10 and matched online price. Definitely worth looking at online prices before ringing up. Rooms: Nice, clean and comfortable. No one could get the Foxtel channels working. Not sure they actually had the channels that were advertised. WIFI: Not suitable for any actual work. Okay if you want to check in on Facebook etc. Pool: Tiny. Wouldn't stay here for the pool. Location: Nice and close to the main street. Overall, it's a great place to spend a night!

"Simply the best in Goondiwindi "

""Great motel best by far""

Craig A, Dubbo, Australia 16/09/2016

Our family stayed here on a recent trip and we're so impressed we stayed again on our return, the queen bed and pillows are the best of any motel we have stayed, very spacious well appointed rooms,the bathroom and shower were the quality you would expect from a very up class resort, we enjoyed dinner and breakfast from the restaurant and we're again impressed by the quality and affordability,Paul the owner and his staff were extremely pleasant and accomadating, 5 star rating all the way,look forward to staying here again in the future... ??????????

"Great place!"

kjess71, Melbourne, Australia 11/09/2016

Stopped in on a driving holiday. Highly recommend. Stayed in a 'family' room which was very clean, comfortable and quiet. Kids had their own room. Fantastic shower. Staff were lovely, very helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

"Great overnight stay "

David m, Brisbane, Australia 09/09/2016

Quiet rooms and comfy bed, meals at the in house restaurant are also excellent. Great for a overnight or short stopover if passing through. Rooms are clean and modern and the service at the counter was friendly and helpful. Will stay here again!

"Beautiful room and the best bed I have ever slept in (other than my own)..."

User 04/09/2016

Nice welcome, superb meals, lovely room. Despite being near the busy highway - room was pretty soundproof. There was a small dripping sound coming from the toilet, but with the door shut, it was a bother. Other guests in the vicinity were a tad noisy in the morning - 6amish. (Sunday morning)

"Great Place"

FrequentTraveller189, Brisbane, Australia 01/09/2016

Great place to stay. Comfortable rooms. Clean. Good food. My only negative comment would be the rooms aren't very sound proof. I could hear everything outside the room - especially the bloke in the next room that sat outside most of the night drinking, coughing and sneezing. The sneezing could wake the dead!

"Overnight in Goondiwindi"

Chick1462, Brisbane, Australia 31/08/2016

Best Western Ascot Lodge Motor Inn had everything we needed for our overnight stay. The room was very comfy and had a couch, fridge, TV, cupboard and even a full length mirror. The bed was great, with spare blankets all spotless in good condition. The hotel is walking distance to the town centre and was very quiet. We ate in the restaurant and enjoyed our meals. I thought the staff were all excellent and we were seated and our meals served promptly.

"A quiet night spent in our room after a rugged drive through rain "

Quirindi282016, Maldon, Australia 25/08/2016

We found our room very cosy and comfortable. Everything was working perfectly and the beds were great. Enjoyed our meal in our room rather than having to dress again for dinner. We were very tired and we slept so well, having been kept awake by trucks at our previous stop at Parkes.

"Amazingly clean"

User 24/08/2016

We stayed here on Monday night. James was very welcoming and friendly. The room was very modern. The bed very comfortable and warm. The bathroom was spotless with extra towels. This was our second visit and will defiantly be returning. Can not fault this motel in any way. We had a lovely meal in the restaurant.

"Overnight Stay"

User 13/08/2016

Great location just off highway. Warm welcome and clean spacious room. Also ate in restaurant at motel which provided excellent food, service and value. Would certainly stay again and recommend to others.

"Gold not Gray in Goondi"

Bob B, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia 04/08/2016

Closest to continue a trip on the Newell but situated well for a walk into town after being in the car for the long drive - 'sittting too long' is the next 'smoking' health issue. Despite being on a service road of the 'main road out of town' our ground floor room at the back of the long block closest to the road was so quiet we heard nothing of the associated road noise. Room beside us was occupied but only evidenced by the car parked outside. It was a pleasurable environment comfortable to be in. Paul and staff transmitted a feeling of 'it is a pleasure to have you stay with us'.

"A fantastic overnighter."

QueenstownGroupy, Rockhampton, Australia 01/08/2016

Booked to stay overnight yesterday based on previous good reviews. We were very happy with our stay. Customer service was excellent, with prompt action on our requests and concerns. Our room was clean, comfortable and had all one would need for an overnight stay. Bed was good. Aircon excellent. The Cascades Restaurant at this Motel was not only convenient but a bonus as the food was great. Parking at your door as well. Will definitely stay again.

"Comfortable Motel"

Teresa M, Brisbane Region, Australia 26/07/2016

We enjoyed our night here. The room itself is quite small but it was modern, had great décor, was well presented, clean and comfortable. The man at reception was welcoming and friendly. Our room was quiet and had everything we needed. They even managed to fit a nice lounge into the small room. The bathroom was large compared to the rest of the room and it was modern, clean and plenty of bench space. It would be great to see a heat lamp in the bathroom as it gets pretty chilly in Goondiwindi in winter!

Dear Teresa M, Thank you for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor. It was great to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to welcoming you back when you are next in Goondiwindi. Kind Regards, James

"Nice spot"

Barry M, Brisbane, Australia 25/07/2016

This is a nice Motel with everything you need. The Bed was very comfortable and the room was well appointed with a comfy couch and large TV. There was free pay tv with sports and movie channels. The wifi was excellent. The bathroom was large and modern. Undercover parking is available outside every room and there is also a great pool for warmer months. The restaurant is great for dinner.

"Great place to stay"

Herbie2219, Brisbane, Australia 22/07/2016

We were very impressed by this motel and its facilities. It is just off the highway and noise is not an issue. Parking is undercover out front of the unit. It is modern with beautiful bathroom and shower. A truly well set out room with a very comfortable bed. Restaurant meals are of high quality. Fenced for security which can be an issue for travelers. We stayed at another motel in the same town on the way back just to try out accommodation and we know where we will stay in future. Thank you to all staff at the Ascot Lodge Motor Inn for a very pleasant restful stay.

Trish2650, Wagga Wagga, Australia 16/07/2016

My husband and I stopped here on way home from holidays. Paul, the manager, was so welcoming. The room was quiet and spacious, bed was comfortable, good heating, and great bathroom - all at reasonable price. But the bonus was the on site restaurant 'Cascades' - fabulous food and great service. We will definitely stay again!

"Great accomodation "

Kirsty C, Ballarat, Australia 11/07/2016

The Ascot Lodge Motor Inn is a lovely modern motel that had really spacious room including a fabulous bathroom. The manager was lovely and really accommodating when our child was ill which I really appreciated at a difficult time for us. Due to our child being ill we decided to order room service for tea and it was a great decision. The food was reasonably priced and absolutely delicious. Highly recommend this accomodation.

User 01/07/2016

After a long drive from Lightning Ridge we arrived in Goondoowindi. Lovely rooms with very comfortable beds and spacious and modern bathrooms. We ate dinner and breakfast in their restaurant and was not disappointed. Staff very friendly. Would definitely recommend you stay here.

"Best in Gundy"

Robert S, Brisbane, Australia 28/06/2016

Great service, good food with many ingredients sourced locally. Rooms are a generous size, clean, tidy and not outdated. Plenty of space to sit comfortably on the couch or spread your files out on the bench.

"Well appointed motel which has everything you would need"

peter z, cairns 27/06/2016

When in Goondiwindi and you need a good place to stay, look no further! Clean, quiet, well appointed room with bigger than big bathrooms. There is a restaurant that serves up good quality fare, so stay in and enjoy the night!

"Clean modern rooms, friendly staff"

doris222, cleveland 24/06/2016

Only stayed here one night but it was a great motel. The rooms were not too small and had all amenities we needed with a great shower and nice comfy beds. My only suggestion which is just so common is buy a bottle of Exit Mould and spray the showers when you clean them. Nearly everywhere we stay has the same easily fixed issue, it just takes a spray of bleach to give a clean shower, a minor detail but still annoying. The restaurant was over priced at $36 for a steak so we ate elsewhere and the free wifi didn't work but for accommodation we would definitely recommend this place.

"disappointing rooms, excellent customer service though"

Noreen0214, Melbourne, Australia 28/05/2016

I will start by saying that it is just too bad that the room itself is not a good value for money, as the customer service we received was top-notched. We arrived very late in the evening, however the manager made sure there were no issues with check-in and everything was in order. There is an excellent restaurant adjacent to the hotel. It's a bit pricey; but with the service we reserved, I would say it was worth it. Now, for the room. Disappointing at best. Such a shame really as I had expected better from Best western hotels. We stayed in a 2-BR suite supposedly. I say supposedly because it really is just a 1-BR suite, with the second room doubling as lounge with small kitchenette. The layout is also not well planned, as you could actually hear the other people in the adjacent suite/room - particularly those leaving with their cars very early in the morning. Now, for a 2-BR suite, this really should not be an issue. We have stayed in 1-BR suites previously where you could hardly hear anything from the outside. This was supposed to be a 2-BR one. I think that they should just say what it really is. It is a 1-BR suite, with an extra bed in the lounge and kitchenette. It isn't very good value for money. But I supposed this probably is the best in town. It certainly was rated number 1 in Tripadvisor (main reason we chose it in the first place).

"Pleasant stopover"

Wendy S, Narooma, Australia 25/05/2016

It is hard to do much with small motel room but Ascot Lodge tries to make their rooms as comfortable as possible. We requested a room towards the back and got one - much quieter, I think, so a good tip if you don't like nighttime truck noise. The owners and staff are pleasant and friendly. We dined in the onsite restaurant and it was quite good too.

"Best Stay, great Staff"

Tardustraveller, Gold Coast 16/05/2016

So pleased I chose this Motel . The manager was really helpful as we had additional cars plus trailer which is a big ask to arrange secure parking for all vehicles . Big tick there. The food we had in restaurant was way above the expected standard. We all ordered different meals steak, pork and Barra and each was presented well and was equally delicious. Big tick there. Rooms were updated ,fresh and clean and bed comfortable. Big tick there. As this is the start of a long road trip , the bar is set very high . Well done to all at Ascot Lodge.

"Comfortable but bit overpriced"

Helen1997, Brisbane, Australia 24/04/2016

Stayed one night in standard queen room. Nice large bathroom however small bed area & limited facilities. Noisy with cars parking directly outside neighbouring rooms. Felt cost of room was bit overpriced for country motel.

James C, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Ascot Lodge Motor Inn, responded to this review
Dear Helen1997, Thank you for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor. Being a Motor Inn each room in our hotel has a designated car spot outside their room. Generally this set up is very well received by our guests however it sounds like during your stay that your neighbours unfortunately weren't as quiet as we usually expect. Thank you Helen1997 for your feedback and I certainly hope we may have the chance to welcome you back to Best Western Ascot Lodge in the future. Kind Regards, James

"Best place, you wont be disappointed."

Mish7875, Gold Coast, Australia 10/04/2016

We stayed at Ascot Lodge and were pleasantly surprised when opening the door to our room. It was a beautiful room, all new bedding and furnishing. We ordered room service dinner and breakfast, both meals were huge and beautifully presented an tasted yum. We even drove and extra 100 ks coming home just so we could stay here a second time. Also under cover car parking. My only negative is they allow smoking just outside the rooms. When we left our room the next morning we walked into a wall of smoke from the man smoking next door. But apart from that it was all 100%

Great motel. Comfortable bed and quiet room. The staff were helpful and friendly. We had a very good breakfast and coffee in the motel restaurant and prices are reasonable for the quality. Will stay again.

"Great Country Accommodation"

Harrydubya, Canberra, Australia 29/03/2016

This was the first night stop on our trip home from Central Qld to Canberra and it really is a lovely place to stay. Our room had both a queen and single bed and was very comfortable, very clean and very well presented. Excellent. The restaurant, " Cascades " has a great ambience, and all the staff were very friendly. Our meal was good, but not " great " as had been our experience on a previous stay some 18 months or so ago. We were told the previous manager and previous chef ( a couple ) have since moved on so maybe our expectations were a bit high. All in all, a very nice night's stay and would recommend it to all.

This was a very clean, well-kept hotel with clean, spacious and well-appointed rooms. From check in to leaving we were made to feel welcome.

"Good overnight stop"

MeridianOfSydney, Bathurst, Australia 02/02/2016

Nice, spacious room, very comfortable bed. We also had an extra single bed and small sofa. WiFi is free. Our room was away from the road but the motel is ought the main road so noise wouldn't be a problem. We drove into the town to do some shopping, then had a pleasant stroll along the levee bank of the MacIntyre River. The Cascades restaurant had a quote limited menu, (the Vietnamese spring rolls had finished). Choices basically chicken, fish or steak. Bit pricy. As it was a public holiday the next day, we had room service breakfast, which was OK.

"Undeserving of top spot"

Jmx1009, Greater Melbourne, Australia 16/01/2016

Ascot Lodge Motor Inn performs well on measures of cleanliness, ease of check-in and sleeping comfort. The bed was very comfortable; a stand-out compared to most motels and on par with luxury hotels in my view. The town is quite beautiful in many regards as well, but be aware Ascot Lodge is a few minutes drive from the town centre and shops of any kind. Service standards are good but not excellent, and I found the staff aloof and harried. Free wi-fi par for the course. The rooms contain high quality furnishings and there is a sense of refinement all-round. Dedicated parking spaces outside each room are a plus. The kitchenette is immaculate and feature-rich, with an amply sized bar fridge (a newer model) and non-prehistoric kettle as well as a generous and not too expensive mini-bar. Unfortunately the establishment can not justify being twenty dollars more expensive than other options in the town. The room was small and quite cramped, and would probably have been nightmarish with more than one person (I was traveling cross-country on my own). Of the motels I've visited in Australia this room was the smallest, which is obscene given the inflated price tag. I find it unlikely that Ascot is better all-round than other motels in Goondiwindi. I found it met minimum standards in many regards, but is not on par with the Ascot Lodge in Kingaroy where the rooms are at least 50% larger. Why do some of the rooms not have ashtrays outside? Ascot Lodge Goondiwindi also lacks the country charm of regional Australian motels and is altogether quite artificial. I doubt it is popular with locals. It seems a lot of people choose Ascot: it was very busy. The small pool was crowded with about 30 people on a late December day. Clean and simple, with all the things you need if you're just passing through, and an amazing bed. But it's small, cramped rooms mean it is poor value for money and - although this remains to be seen - likely undeserving of the top spot in Goondiwindi.

James C, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Ascot Lodge Motor Inn, responded to this review
Hi JMX1009, Thank you for your review. Whilst I am glad that overall you did enjoy your stay I did note your comments re: the rooms being too small for your requirements.

We were traveling to Brisbane before Christmas and decided to stop over the night. We rung at short notice and the staff were fantastic the room was spotless and bed was comfortable (my husband has back issues so he always complains about beds and didn't this night). Our room service was delicious! We will definitely be stopping here again next trip!

We arrived at this Motel on Christmas Day and were very impressed by the warm welcome and hospitable efforts of the Manager. We really appreciated the fact he had made the effort to ensure the Airconditioning was turned on in our pre-booked room. The room was quite large, very clean and comfortable. Ours was set back from the road and therefor quiet. Overall, a great experience. Thanks you.

Same place, same lovely room, same friendly service and same jummy food as last year this time - all arranged at 4pm, with one little mobile call while travelling and only two pieces of information needed: We need a room for tonight please and my name is.... WOW! And a Big thumbs up from me to you. I arranged a stay over for my return trip with a note left in the room. WOW again. Walked in tonight, picked up the key, no paperwork and same lovely and super comfy room again.??

"Simply Impressed"

TASlum, Brisbane, Australia 21/12/2015

I don't know if it is because I'm used to the North American standard or if this place is unique to the chain, but for a roadside hotel it was excellent! Room was spacious and neatly laid out. Minibar with some starters, huge bathroom, and covered parking at the door. What impressed me the most was that the room was quite literally spotless - showroom quality. Even the taps in the bathroom didn't have a hint of a watermark. Their restaurant was nice, had dinner and breakfast. No faults to note. Food was restaurant quality. I had a main and a beer, came to $34. Wifi was spotty on my phone but my laptop sitting right next to it had no issues keeping a connection. For $140 I think I got excellent value and to the credit of this location I will keep my eye open for other Best Westerns as I continue my road trip.

"Excellent Motel and wonderful managers"

Robyn M, Melbourne, Australia 14/12/2015

We stayed here for one night on our way to the Sunshine Coast and I can't recommend this place highly enough. It was a very hot day and we were welcomed by the friendly manager who upgraded us to a two bedroom room. It was so nice and refreshing walking into an air-conditioned room after being in the car for almost 12 hours. The rooms were spacious, modern, clean and very comfortable. We will definitely be staying here again next trip up north. Thank you so much for making our trip more comfortable and enjoyable! Thank you for also helping us sort out our parking with the surfboards on our roof! It can sometimes be a bit tricky being so high!

"Comfy hotel - family room"

a l, Australian Capital Territory, Australia 21/11/2015

Nice and comfortable hotel room - with an extra room to suit a family. Great to have the extra television as well. Efficient air conditioning, comfy beds and nice shower. I don't recommend the restaurant due to the lengthy wait.

"Excellent Country Motel"

TheCr00ks, Brisbane, Australia 07/11/2015

Right from arrival we felt welcomed. Our room was excellent, with everything we needed, comfortable bed, chairs and desk, and a very good modern bathroom. We really appreciated the convenience of "Cascades", the restaurant that is part of the motel complex, where we had a very pleasant dinner. Will stay there again when going through Goondiwindi.

"Very Comfortable"

SydneyBec, Sydney 05/11/2015

Very comfortable beds and very spacious bathroom. Lovely restaurant on site called cascades that serves delicious breakfasts and dinners and includes a great kids menu. A very comfortable place to stay when in Goondiwindi. We had a goodnight sleep here after a long day travelling from Brisbane on our way to Sydney.

"Best in Goondiwindi"

1958flyer, Sydney 02/11/2015

After a long drive from Yeppoon I called the hotel for a rate, which was much better than any of the web sites & booked straight away. Was greeted by first name & really made to feel welcome. Told about the area & informed the Motel's Restaurant was open that evening , a great thing as I was 'buggered". The food and service in the Restaurant matched that of the reception & couldn't been better The rooms are stylish , large & extremely clean & quite. The motel is easy to find, just off the big roundabout in Goondiwindi, whether coming from the North or South Great stay.

"Road Trip - a perfect start to two weeks travelling in the country."

Les A, Brisbane, Australia 23/10/2015

We stayed on a Sunday night (11th October). Motel is well located on the edge of town and easy to find. It was a pleasure to arrive - staff were friendly and helpful and check-in was a breeze. Rooms are spacious, very clean and well decorated. We dined in the restaurant which has a great modern menu and beautifully cooked food. We had dinner and breakfast and were impressed with both meals. Would highly recommend this motel which is a cut above the usual country motel.

We were booked in here after a 9 hour drive and it did not disappoint. Very nice, clean, comfortable, modern. Check in staff pleasant and helpful. We would definitely recommend to anyone needing to stay in Goondiwindi.

"Comfortable Place"

User 30/09/2015

I stayed her in my recent Bird Photography trip to Australia. This is really a good place to stay. The restaurant is also good. Interiors of Rooms is excellent. Bathrooms are nice. I would recommend this place to the fellow travellers.

"Quite good"

User 21/09/2015

Looking for a bed for the night on our road trip from Lightning Ridge to Brisbane, we decided to stop at Goondiwindi. Liked the look and price of Best Western Ascot Lodge on TripAdvisor, so we called into reception. Asked the host for the price of a room, and he quoted a price much higher than that published on TripAdvisor. When I asked him why the difference, he said that rooms booked on TripAdvisor must be booked and paid for in advance to qualify for the cheaper rate. It was too late in the day to look for another hotel, so we had to accept his higher price. Having said that, the room was quite acceptable (although the price was perhaps a bit too high for a room this far from a capital city). I may think twice before staying here again.

"goondiwindi motel"

julie t, Melbourne, Australia 15/09/2015

Stayed for one night in this very comfortable , clean , and well maintained motel. The restaurant was very good, staff were excellent and the water windows dealt with lack of view well. There is a good onsite pool and area to have drinks.
