Regional Accommodation throughout Australia

Comfort is never far away under the Southern Cross

It’s never been easier to relax when you’re travelling through Australia. The Southern Cross Motel Group brings the luxury of big city hotels to regional Australia, blending stylish but practical design with honest old fashioned service. At Southern Cross Motel Group, we’ve invested a lot in making sure the motels we run feel like they are places built for relaxing in. Our accommodation provides updated and practical interior design, comfortable beds with luxurious linens, Smart TV’s or Foxtel, and the option of dining in our in-house restaurants and swimming in our swimming pools.

We understand that some of our guests are corporate travellers, and that you also need to work while you relax, therefore we’ve designed a lot of our motel rooms to support the modern businessperson, including work desks, free wi-fi, free on-site parking and air-conditioning, as standard throughout all our accommodation options.

Some of our properties also offer event spaces, so that we can host your wedding, corporate functions, office work parties, baby showers, birthday celebrations, anniversaries and much more! We can provide catering and accommodation options for small or large functions, including sporting groups.

Our Property Managers are industry professionals who remember that hospitality is about the friendly and generous entertainment of guests, visitors and strangers. We genuinely love meeting new people and being able to make your stay away from the comfort of your home, as relaxing as possible.
