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.



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.



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"


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.

"Excellent motel"


great value for the money. very friendly and helpful staff. rooms are large and very clean. Excellent restaurant . if you like noodle the Singapore noodles was excellent as was the seaffood pasta. wine selection limited but very good. Wi-fi was excellent as was tv reception. enjoyed the staff immensely.

"Goondiwindi Gold"


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"


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"


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"


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"


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"


From the time of arrival, the service, facilities and room was of an excellent standard. We were given an opportunity to inspect the room before committing to stay. The room was very comfortable, very well appointed and very clean.

"Great choice of motel"


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"


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"


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.

"Best Quality motel in southern Queenland"


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"


We stayed here for one night, having booked through one of Trip Advisors booking partners. We had a response from 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 "


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"


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 "


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"


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"


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"


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"


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"


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"


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.

"Great experience every time at Ascot Lodge Motor Inn - Goondiwindi"


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.



Excellent venue,great staff with top rooms and in saying that this is my ninth or tenth visit here. Paul and his staff are certainly on the ball, meals I've enjoyed three days of great food an I would recommend the Bara dish but I could go on an on. 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"


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.

"Travelling through"


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"


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"


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"


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 "


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"


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"


Stayed one night , very clean and modern and upto date room and bathroom ,great mattress very comfortable and free wifi .Would stay again . Happy hour at 5pm . Had a meal in the restaurant very nice and good staff .

"Ascot is the place to stay"


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!"


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"


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!"


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"


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"


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"


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 "


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"


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"


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"


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"


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"


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.



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"


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"


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"


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



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"


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!"


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"


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"


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."


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"


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. "


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 "


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"


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"


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"


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"


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"


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!"


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"


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"


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"


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."


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!"


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"


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"


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. "


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"


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"


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.

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"


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"


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 "


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"


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.



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 "


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"


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"


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"


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"


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"


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"


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"


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"


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"


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.



This is one of the nicest Best Western that we have stayed in everything about it was four stars the room was a pleasure to stay in for all travelers passing this way this is the place to stop you will not be dissappointed in any way highly recomned it

"Excellent value for money and a really good restaurant"


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.



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"


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 "


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 :)"


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.

"Roadshow 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"


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"


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"


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 "


Always a great place to stay, quiet and very comfortable rooms with a very modern clean feel, great size bathroom and good beds. Very roomy with good tv and air conditioner. The restaurant is excellent for dinner and breakfast

""Great motel best by far""


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!"


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 "


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)..."


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"


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"


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 "


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"


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"


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"


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."


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"


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"


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"


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.

"A perfect place to stop over - definitely stay again."


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 "


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.

Hi Kirsty, Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your recent stay with us. I will pass on your feedback re: your meals to our Head Chef who will be delighted.

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"


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"


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"


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"


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"


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"


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.

"All here after a long drive!"


This motel won't disappoint, excellent meal in the restaurant with great service, great bed with decent pillows and is worth the few $$ difference. Good size rooms with plenty of bench space and good size bathroom. Ever this way again will be stopping again. Owners/mangers should be proud:)

"Comfortable but bit overpriced"


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

"Rest, enjoy the surroundings walk into town or just relax"


My business travels take me to many places and many hotels. I rate this hotel for its fabulous rooms, convenience and most importantly good quality beds. The restaurant is an excellent standard and quality food. It's also very quite, very little or no noise. " ENJOY"

Dear Phillips2930, Thank you for your review of our Hotel and onsite Restaurant 'Cascades' I was delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and I will certainly share your positive feedback with our team. Thanks again and we certainly hope to welcome you back again soon. Kind Regards, James

"Best place, you wont be disappointed."


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 Motor Inn"


My husband and I stayed overnight at the Ascot Lodge Motor on our way to Queensland and we were so impressed we stayed again on the way home. Its a modern well appointed motel very clean and comfortable. The Cascades Restaurant where we had dinner and breakfast was very impressive. All staff from check-in to restaurant staff were all very friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend a stay here you won't be disappointed.

"Great Country Accommodation"


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.

"A very comfortable bed indeed!"


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. But having been travelling for a few weeks it was wonderful to find such a comfortable bed. So comfortable in fact that we slept in - something we haven't done in years. We highly recommend and will definitely stay here again.

"Good overnight stop"


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"


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.

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. For the benefit of our Trip Advisor readers we do have three different Room categories available. The configurations are either one Queen Bed, a Queen and Single Bed or a Family Room which has a Queen Bed and three Single Beds. Thank you again for your feedback JMX1009 and I certainly hope we may have the chance to welcome you back in the future. Kind Regards James Cunningham

"Another fine stay"


Excellent room, modern, comfortable, ground floor, quiet Airconditioning, and good value. This was our second stay and is our preferred lodging when in Goondiwindi. Ample easy car parking and all staff were very pleasant on all occasions. Cascades is a first class restaurant too.

"Another great stay!"


We came in last year and this time round found the same fabulous service and room. Very spacious, in particular the bathroom. The dinner and breakfast we had at the onsite restaurant, "Cascades", was exceptional. Well done!

We stayed here last night after a long drive from regional NSW on our way to the Gold Coast. We couldn't fault this place, the service was friendly, rooms were modern, clean & nicely furnished. And the bed was SO comfy! We would definitely recommend staying here...thank you!

"Simply brilliant"


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!

"Cool Room ... Warm Reception "


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.

"Second time round "


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"


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.

Dear Saleem, Thank you for your kind words and safe travels on your journey down to the Great Ocean Rd! Kind Regards, James Cunningham General Manager

"Best in town by a country mile!"


Very comfortable, recently renovated. Rooms are well appointed. Undercover parking, friendly staff, inviting pool. Restaurant is excellent, especially the steak. The cascading water windows are cool, especially in hot weather. This is a popular port of call for travellers so it pays to book ahead. Highly recommended.

"Passing Through!"


An especially clean and contemporary styled large room was the best we'd had in a motel over the last two months of motoring! The bathroom was also contemporary and large with fluffy large towels. Altogether a great stay in quite a remote place! Congratulations to the owners for providing an exceptional traveller experience!

"Excellent Motel and wonderful managers"


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"


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"


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"


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"


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."


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"


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"


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"


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.
