Stayed here for two nights and as other reviews have indicated, it was a good choice. Don't know what other motels in town are like but we were happy with our choice. Nice room, handy to the bowls club across the road for dining and all costs there charged to our room. Very satisfied.

Travelled to Lightning Ridge with approx. 15 motorbikes. Majority of us stayed in the new section. Lovely big rooms, clean and tidy. Unfortunately no undercover parking, but we were able to park directly in front of our room as we had a ground floor unit. Parking is paved - no gravel for the bikes. Able to walk around the town...

It's Lightning Ridge so it's a long way from anywhere in particular but if you happen to be in that part of NSW and you realize that the most stunning and valuable opal - black opal - in the world comes from here, then drop in. And if you are overnighting my advice would be to stay at the Wallangulla...

Despite the fact that the temperatures were in the 40's I travelled here with a friend and stayed two nights. As it was extremely hot the functioning airconditioning and clean spacious rooms in the new part of the motel were much appreciated. As this hotel is associated with the bowling club you can put your meals on your room tab...

After a long drive from Armidale we were overjoyed to find that the promises on the website were delivered in spades. We had booked for 2 nights but stayed for 3 such was our enjoyment. Comfortable spacious rooms with all necessary amenities. Across the road from the Bowling Club which at the Ridge is the centre of Town. All drinks,...

I stayed at the Wallangulla Motel in Lightning Ridge on Wednesday 6th of December . I must say I was a little worried about the standard of Motel in the Ridge because I had stayed at another Motel there 10 yrs ago and it was Horrendous! That was then and this is now and the Wallangulla delivered a modern ,...

Terrible visit. Stayed here with the kids over night. The lady at the reception was rude and we stayed in the older part of the motel. It wasn't packed out. The air con was struggling and they didn't even tell us there was a pool in the new section. Very disappointing and don't recommend
