I found this motel to be the best in Blackwater , i have stayed at them all. I travel for business and need no fuss and relaxed accommodation, I also need a decent restaurant to entertain my customers , and Jags restaurants is decent even though a limited menu. Blackwater is probably a business travelers place as I could not...

I have visited Blackwater for business trips quite a few times and I would not stay anywhere else. The rooms are clean, comfortable and well set out. the staff are always friendly and helpful. The meals at the restaurant are a little pricey but well worth the money!

This was an excellent motel to stay in. The room was comfy, immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. I ordered room service and the meal was just delicious. The room came with breakfast but I didn't order any as I'm not a breakfast person. Highly recommend this place and would stay here again!

Stayed one night. Good to have a spacious, clean motel room with comfortable bed and pillows. The restaurant dinner was excellent as was the breakfast next morning (b/fast included in room rate). The staff at reception, the restaurant and breakfast were friendly, courteous and efficient. Thank you - thoroughly enjoyed.

We checked out 3 places physically, 4 online, and glad we selected here; assisted by discount offered when enquiring at counter. After a long dusty driving day so a very welcome clean and modern respite rather than putting up the trailer tent. Recently renovated: modern, not "outback" or " mining" kitsch. Also a very good restaurant, reasonable prices for sort...

Stayed here over night on my way out west. It was a lovely place to stay. Rooms were clean and tidy. The staff were excellent, nothing was too much hassle. We had a complimentary breakfast with our room rate, which was great. If I am traveling through BlackWater it's definitely a place I would stay and recommend.
