Well it didn't look all that flash from the street but hey, don't judge a book by its cover right!. The check in process went ok, friendly enough service but the room was a bit sad unfortunately. To highlight the bad points, let's just say that the spare pillows in the cupboard had definitely been used as were the ones...

Clean but tired like many small country motels, great low price which is just as well as the aircon. had trouble cooling the room, 44c at 7pm outside, had to move the bed under the aircon. outlet to get a cool breeze as there was no fan. Meals at the Bowls club or the pub.

Context is everything. Some reviewers might complain that the motel is basic, however Bourke is not the Paris end of Collins Street and you're coming to country NSW, not the big city. If your are after a comfy bed and a clean room this place is perfectly fine to break your travels. My room was clean and the air conditioning...

Room was adequate, but when we took a spare blanket from the cupboard, it was too filthy to use. It made us wonder what else we were sleeping on. Pool renovations were underway and the restaurant was closed. The motel is for sale and hopefully new management may bring some professionalism into the operation.

First stop on the way to Darwin. Bed was very comfortable. I just slept there, so can't comment on the rest of the facilities. But compared to the rest of the dumps I stayed in further along the trip, this was luxury and good value.

In town for work and as such, this motel is OK. It is central, check in friendly and efficient But reception times are limited. Rooms are relatively clean, good size and quiet. Linen/towelling was showing signs of ageing and there were limited amenities available. I could not find the advertised wifi on several devices, which I did not discover until...

Very dated rooms. Tidy but not cleaned daily. Shower was poorly painted and even though there was a jug for coffee, you couldn't fit it under the tap to fill. The air conditioning was loud and no remote control so had to clime to adjust. There was a random phone dial tone sound all night that only seed to stop...

We stayed at the Major Mitchell for one night in June 2016. Bourke is a busy place in June, believe it or not, and accommodation can be hard to find – particularly with kids in tow. We tried the Riverside and they could only offer us two rooms (a problem with younger children). We tried Kidman Camp out at North...

Had an overnight stay here after an 8 week trip around Australia. So we have seen a lot of accommodation and this motel is one of the poorer ones. So when you arrive in a town late in the day after a long drive you take what you can get. The ceiling looked like it could fall down, the shower...
