Coach tours

Coach Tour Operator,

Our family owns and operates the Halfway Motel in Eden, New South Wales. Our primary business is jointly shared as both a coach tour motel and tourist motel. Since taking over the motel in December 2001 we have focused on offering accommodation and tours for senior coach groups. Over time we have refined the service and options we now offer to coach groups and the tour/coach operator providing the group tour.

Over the past 10 years in business both as the attraction/accommodation provider and tour organiser for coach groups we have observed closely and with interest how other tours run, as well as our own, and have closely monitored feedback from the customer. As a result we feel we can deliver a first class tour package for coach groups….. one which on sells further tours as a result of the excellent word of mouth that is generated.

The Halfway Motel is a 28 room motel of varying configurations. The motel offers 18 ground floor units and 10 upstairs rooms with very manageable stairs for older clientele. The facilities offered by the motel are at the top end of a 3 ½ star motel, they include a solar heated , saltwater swimming pool and outdoor spa bath, covered B-B-Q and amply seated outdoor area, and our top class restaurant and lounge/bar called Mystique. The coach groups have a matching private dining room adjoining the restaurant so as to provide the group with privacy for theme nights and entertainment.

For our Coach Tour Operators we have designed a comprehensive 6 Day / 5 Night tour package, whereby we will book and confirm the tour attractions for you. After many years of designing and running our own tours, we feel we have created a tour that offers the best of the local area as well as providing a comfortable and full days touring, without exhausting both driver and passengers. In addition, we are able to make some variances to the tour, if required. Variations to Days 1 & 6 can be necessary depending on the tour departure point. The tariff excludes the coach and driver costs and your own advertising & tour related costs.

We are aware that some Tour Operators and Coach Companies prefer to organise their own tours so we have included a separate tariff page for Dinner Bed and Breakfast only.

As part of the tour package we provide a quality two course dinner with choices including a selection of teas and freshly brewed coffee. The two course dinner is substantial and due to the other meals being provided throughout the day, is more than a lot of seniors can consume. The breakfasts’ on offer include a fresh fruit platter, a selection of breads for toasting (conveyor toaster), fruit juices, yoghurt, a selection of cereals, and a choice of two/three hot meals that vary each day. Additionally, we provide the tour group with home baked morning teas for 5 of the 6 days of the tour. The Cat Balou Lunch is also provided by us and includes hot and cold freshly made finger foods and cheesecake.

Since hospitality is our forte we provide excellent service and an environment that is very conducive to socialisation, relaxation and in general ….laughter.

I look forward to hearing from you
