Great property in a great location, let down by noise from local street gangs.”

I have stayed at the Diplomat many times over the years. This was the first for which noise was an issue. Local indigenous hands of youth terrorise the town every night creating much noise and an unsafe environment. Unfortunately, the police are powerless to do anything because of weak laws.

This was a very well located hotel and the room was clean and grounds were tidy. The coffee and bar vouchers were appreciated and the staff were friendly. The only downside for our stay (on a busy Saturday night) was the noise from the pub below. A loud banging noise from the large gate was heard sporadically from about 11pm until some time after midnight.

The Diplomat Motel is in a great location and is good value for money. The staff are very accommodating and friendly plus it has a few food options (Pub and Café) at reasonable prices. It is starting to show its age and there was a lot noise from the streets at night so try and get a internal facing room. 1st night we arrived we were in a King room which was above the pub on Karaoke night with loud singing until 1am. They moved us the next day which was better.

Great location”

I stayed 1 night in a Superior Queen room. The location is excellent being in the centre of town, so walking distance to most places (except the casino). Staff were generally friendly and helpful. We got vouchers for 2 x drinks at Uncles Tavern (on premises) and 2 x tea/coffee vouchers for Stumps Cafe (on premises). The room was a little worn, but clean and had all the basics. The bed was comfy and quiet (faced into the carpark/pool not out to the street), good water pressure in the shower and the aircon worked fine (to warm the room). Overall it was a good stay and I'd stay there again
