Nice quiet motel.
Stayed here for a week, was close to everything, really quiet and comfortable rooms/cabins. Lady who manages it was so friendly and commited to making your stay as comfortable as possible. Will be my first choice if I’m ever travelling out that way again!

Not sure if you would call this a motel ???
I think the name says it all "Miners Rest" - it is set up for large numbers of people in a mulitutes of accommodation types from single mens quarters to caravan park cabins. It is also set up for shift workers with blackened out windows as well. There is a large amenties block with toilets and laundry facilities as well. Only limited cleaning of rooms is offered, but staff are really friendly and helpful. Smack in the middle of towm just behind the pub. Will stay again.
