Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We recently spent two nights at the Southern Cross Inn. Our room was clean and a good size. The Inn is within walking distance of the shopping centre and across the road from the RSL which serves a good meal. We did not make use of the pool but it looked very enticing.
Recommended.

I was on a group rail and coach tour with more than 30 others so my expectations for this motel were low.

It is across the road from the RSL Club, and at a pinch, walking distance from Narrabri station with its daily NSW TrainLink XPlorer railcars to and from Sydney, the famous 'Northern Tablelands Express'.

The motel is large.

The living area looks to have been renovated within the past decade. Carpet was in good condition.

There was a table with two chairs, a clean bar fridge, decent sized television that was slow and difficult to get working, two wine glasses, mugs and standard glasses plus the usual tea and coffee sachets.

The Queen bed was extremely comfortable and delivered on the best sleep of the trip. Good lighting was a feature of the room.

As is so often the case, WiFi was quite slow and could not do everything I wanted it to, such as download a document.

The bathroom had not been renovated. The shower area was large with a very good, reliable supply of hot water. The toilet and handbasin were clean, and shampoo, conditioner and soap were supplied. It was best to open the barred window and switch on the ineffective bathroom fan while closing the door to the bedroom, to ensure the smoke alarm was not activated.

The airconditioning was super quiet and extremely effective. Shutters on the windows made the room fairly dark.

The motel pool was clean but very small, lacking shade.

In the morning the cleaners had a tendency to talk outside rooms: not good, but were otherwise excellent.

The motel is not offering breakfast at present.

Had not booked any accommodation in Narrabri on route to Brisbane. The motel in the middle of town we have stayed at before was fully booked, as too was another one we tried. On the way into town we had noticed a sign to the Southern Cross so we tried there and were able to get a room. It is quit a large motel.
The owner was very friendly checking us in. We had a large room, with all the comforts we now expect, including a very comfortable bed. Nice quiet location. The motel is situated opposite the RSL club meaning you can easily walk across the road for a meal and refreshment. Cost of our room $130 for the night.

Large room, well appointed with good quality towels and bed linen. Extremely clean, heaps of hot water in a very large shower with good pressure. Air con. for heating (or cooling) very quiet and efficient. Wifi is excellent. Bed very comfortable. Usual motel toiletries . The RSL across the road offers lunch and dinner, and also has a coffee bar. Very quiet area of town. Pleasant manager. Would definitely stay here again. Nothing not too like.

Great room - lots of space, roomy bathroom with large shower recess & good shower. Fluffy towels, comfy bed & pillows. Across street from RSL club - good restaurant. Room booked by phone - price was quoted, but when came to pay, charged $10 more than quoted price! Confirmation email re booking & price never arrived.

Hello Jocelync265 and David, Thank you for your partially honest review, we understand that you were unhappy with the rate quoted for your very clean and spacious room, and for your wonderful overnight accommodation in Narrabri. You did bring to the attention of management that you 'thought' you were mis-quoted and our answer was simple, we provided you with and instant cash refund - which we were not obligated to do, but we do like to see our guests happy and took your word that you had been mis-quoted and alleviate any stress that it may have caused you. To avoid confusion in future with verbal mis-understanding you could book online and you will be provided with instant pricing before you book. So much easier and less complicated. Take care and do not stress, life is to be enjoyed.

First impression was how good is this compared to others we've stayed at & paid a higher tariff - spacious room size, table & chairs + lounge. All appliances & utensils in working order. Bathroom is right up there with the best we've encountered in our travels - 10+ out of 10!!!
No hesitation in recommending to friends/family as a place to stay

The rooms are larger than average, made comfortable by a small table & 2 chairs for meals. The place is very clean, the beds comfortable. We’ve stayed here a number of times over the years and it’s always a great place to stay. The pool is also excellent for a cooling dip on a hot evening. Right across from the RSL if you want a meal, or warm up something in the in-room microwave if you want a quiet night in after a long day’s drive.

We stayed at The Southern Cross Motor Inn recently when travelling to QLD and back.
This Motel is top class.
The rooms are a good size, modern and clean and the bed was very nice ..
We had bacon and eggs for breakfast and it was very well cooked.
It is also conveniently close to the RSL and not far from other outlets in the town.
There was an issue on 1 x night where some excited workers that were staying and the motel were very loud using inappropriate language - the motel staff diplomatically and professionally handled the situation (Impressive) - and there was no issue from then on...
No doubt we will be back next time we travel through Narrabri.

I've lost count now of the number of times we have stayed here and it never disappoints. Always friendly staff. I'd mentioned on line we were towing a trailer - so accommodating. Not a problem - had it parked very close to our room still hooked up to car. Spacious rooms and very clean. Everything always works. Comfy bed. RSL right across the road for well priced meals. We'll keep returning here 😊

I stayed at the Southern Cross Motor Inn who released details of my visit namely an actual copy of the actual tax invoice to my ex partner when he was not a patron nor named on the invoice. This is a complete breach of privacy and has put me at risk. It is abhorrent and a complete disgrace. I would never stay here again if you paid me.
