Coolabah Motel Walgett NSW
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Walgett
Reviewed July 5, 2016

This motel is very old and tired but is one of the better ones in Walgett. I thought the room rate of $102.00 was very pricey for what you get but I suppose they have a captured market with only a small number of motels in the town. Had dinner from the local chinese which was very ordinary. The room was clean but tired, bed was ok just, and the shower was alright. AC is an old rattler type and woke me up at 3.00am. The staff were very friendly, breakfast was ok but I just cannot get used to being shut in at 8.00pm so I won't be staying in Walgett again.

Room Tip: Keep driving past Walgett and stay in Bourke

The lady in the office was really nice but that was the only positive. There is limited accommodation in Walgett but even considering that, the room we stayed in is not worth the nightly rate. The rooms are very small, noisy and have thin walls. The car park is crowded and not every room has a parking space. Fine for us as it wasn't very full at the time but it would be an issue if all the rooms were booked. We wouldn't stay there again. We'd skip the whole town to be honest and stay elsewhere.

Thank you for your response.

I'm glad you had a pleasant experience with staff at our motel.

Yes Walgett is an old town in outback NSW. Whist we have made every effort to upgrade our rooms, the existing building was built in the 70's.

We have 18 rooms and every room has it's own car space - so every room can park one vehicle in from of their room.

We also have a 1/2 acre lot next to rooms 14-18 for secondary vehicles, boats, trucks, campers etc so no one will ever not have secured parking.

Just in case you do pass through again we would be happy to accommodate you again

On a recent trip home to australia we did a road trip to outback NSW and stayed at coolabah motel.
The owners are really friendly and extremely helpful from when we made the reservation to when we checked in.
Motel is older style but rooms are nicely refurbished
Has all the mod cons and a nice touch with aboriginal inspired bed linen.
Highly recommend this motel, value for money, especially when they include free wifi and guest laundry - it's a bonus for people traveling.

Basic motel, no frills, parking would be tight if the hotel was full.
Thin walls easy to hear next rooms TV. Loud air-conditioning, big step up into shower. Older property. Secure parking behind a locked gate. Friendly staff accommodated late check-in.
Fine for a stop on your way through after a long drive.
Look out for the kangaroo s around walgett, they were terrible at dawn and dusk
