Important Covid19 information


Staff are Great

Very clean, staff are great, restaurant has good meals at a good price, they even have a section outside so you can have your dog with you when you dine. The room has every thing you need, comfortable bed, good shower with large towels.


Truly Excellent

We spent two nights here on a bus tour. We were welcomed at the gate by the owners and a sign. We then had a truly excellent two course meal while being accompanied by a jazz musician. The meal was to die for! The second night was just as good and this time we had a harpist to accompany our excellent meal.


Highly Recommend

I would highly recommend anyone looking for value for money, brilliant amentities, gracious and welcoming hosts, and a clean and comfortable room to look no further when travelling through Coonabarabran! Thank you guys.
