Guest Reviews

Read through some of the reviews by previous Darra Motel & Conference guests.

I honestly cannot speak highly enough of the quality of hospitality we received during our 3 week stay.
Our room was large, modern clean bathroom and a great kitchen area.
It had everything we needed.
Very clean, modern and well maintained.
The owner was fantastic, the manager was amazing. All Staff were friendly, polite professional and went well above our expectations. They accommodated my Assistance Dog. It was such a pleasure to stay here. We definitely will return.
It’s in a great location- away from the huddle and busses but close to everything.
It has a beautiful pool with beautifully maintained gardens.
My Husband and I both highly recommend!

We held a 2 hour seminar this morning in the conference room and it was great. Well set up, added extras like pen, writing pads, ‘“nibbles” and complementary chips etc. the morning tea/coffee spread was excellent with good selection to suit all tastes. The presentation equipment was set up and was up and running seamlessly. This is a venue we will definitely use again. Thank you

This place was very clean, super convenient (right off the highway). I was upgraded to the back rooms, these are very quiet and spacious and away from the highway noise. To my surprise the meals here are very good, the chef cares about his customers. Pool looked good too! 10/10

Fantastic Motel! Stayed one night in this great motel. The garden and motel complex are kept in pristine condition.
We had a room up the back and could not hear the traffic. The room was very clean and the beds extremely comfortable. We had a long chat before dinner with Tony the owner, what a interesting and personable man. We had a great night thanks to you. Dinner was excellent, great steaks and very well priced along with the drinks. Breakfast was also very good. I honestly cannot fault this motel and would not hesitate recommending it to anyone.
