Unusually I don't care how fancy a room is but it must have basic needs after a long day on the road. This place was disappointing. First and foremost what place charges your credit card before you arrive? All you normally really want is a HOT shower. Nope, not at this motel. REALLY? No blanket? Its Tamworth! No bickies...its Australia!...

Room was clean, but very average. Bathroom has a sticker on the wall that states cut your shower by 2 mins to save 18 litres of water, a bit hard when it took almost 4.5 minutes to even get any hot water, then you end up with scorching hot water that you can't regulate! I think double beds are out...

Well I know no one checked out a day early but still wasted my time checking with staff and family members if anyone had expressed concerns, no surprise nothing! We have been here 11 years and take concerns very seriously. We regularly receive positive comments about how well people have slept and get that some people. We have had twice...

We had 3 rooms for us and our friends, all with 110cm tvs, new AC, at checkin we received excellent help with tourist attractions, old motel but clean and pleasant. Beds good, good nights sleep. Staff friendly. Good wifi. Room had bed table chairs, couch, coffee table, separate bathroom. All one would expect.

Stayed here recently for the Country Music Festival, very over priced, cashing in on the Festival. Toilet roll holder broken, paper like sandpaper, pillows as hard as rocks, cord for hair dryer coming from behind the power point, room old and grotty, got one cockroach. Will not be staying again or recommending.

When travelling I try to find value ie a good place for a reasonable cost. This place looked ok even though previous reviews said otherwise. Motel is the first if heading from Armidale on left hand side. Cost was $110 for a twin room of 2 double beds with breakfast. The motel lookalike a 1970s one with minor changes. The...

I have just wasted my time going around our twin rooms and no surprise ALL remotes switch TV on and off. Comment about double bed is absurd, everyone knows what size a double bed is, these rooms are booked for two people, heavily booked by guys working as most motels from our feedback is rooms have 2 singles or bigger...

On the highway on the north side of Tamworth. Can be noisy. Quite a big room with a couch and fridge plus kettle toaster etc. Ok for a night or two. Easy to find and has a restaurant as well as barbecue facilities.

I stayed in this motel overnight when I was on a business trip and I found that it was clean, comfortable and great value for money.The owners were very welcoming and friendly and most accommodating, particularly as I had to change my booking arrangements. Although the motel is an older one, the room I was in had been refurbished and...
