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.

As I almost always stay with family when visiting Tamworth, I don't usually need motel accommodation. However, due to a large family gathering, a number of us, coincidentally as it turned out, chose to stay at the Edward Parry. What a great choice this was! Not only is it the closest motel to my relative's house, I think, judging by competitors I noticed when I went for a walk one day, it is one of the best. It is spotlessly clean, modern - ie, either refurbished recently or newer - well appointed, and extremely comfortable. The beds are super comfy, and I didn't even need my own pillow (I usually take my own, as so many motel pillows are truly awful). Location is very quiet, unlike many motels along Goonoo Goonoo Road (New England Highway) which are affected by the large number of heavy trucks turning at a busy roundabout nearby most hours of the day. The only criticism I had is the absence of a microwave oven in my unit, but hostess Donna explained that they are promoting their own menu (meals delivered to rooms as there is no onsite restaurant); which actually looks great! Hosts Donna and Vaughn are delightful, helpful and friendly; a chat to Donna one afternoon was like chatting to a friend. Although not the cheapest motel in a rural city crowded with accommodation options (due primarily to the popularity of the annual Country Music Festival in January), the "Edward" is certainly not expensive and IMHO, worth the little extra. I highly recommend this motel, and would certainly stay there (and try the inhouse menu!) if I require accommodation in beautiful Tamworth again. I'd actually score it 4.5 stars. Oh yeah, when I was there Covid19 handling procedures were in place, and appeared to be carefully adhered to.

I’ve stayed here a few times this year for work and it has become my motel of choice.
It is one of those Motels that is unassuming from the road because all the best bits are behind the scenes.
Being a family business the staff are genuinely interested in making your stay as comfortable as possible.
The rooms, the heating, the beds, and the facilities are excellent.
Best of all, the meals are to die for. Dinner and breakfast served to the rooms so you don’t have to go out at all once you’ve settled in.
The pork ribs are mouth watering, but currently only available by request. Hopefully they’ll be added to the menu.
All meals are fit for a king.

“I’ll be back” as Arnie would say.

My wife and I stayed at this motel last weekend and found it to be an absolute wonderful experience. From the very first moment when checking in we were treated with a pleasant smile and offered a complimentary drink (which went down well after the trip). The room was spacious and spotlessly clean with bright white sheets on the very comfortable bed. We also found the price very reasonable on today's standards and would not hesitate to recommend this motel to anyone who appreciates the little things that mean a lot. It also offers a cooked breakfast if required and a lovely pool area along with barbecue facilities. Our very best wishes to the managers (Michael and Lisa) and hope they remain at this motel for a very long time.

Another friendly country welcome and an offer of a complementary wine or beer...Havent seen that since the 70's.
ROOMS >>
▪︎Very clean with a very spacious bathroom / w bath /hairdryer
▪︎Sadly > NO MICROWAVE and clearly stated
No heating of food in room
A disappointment somewhat as we were
travelling organised to use provided
microwaves for at least making our
breakfasts.
▪︎ a low humming drone sound was emitting
from the bathroom which we can only
guess was the air-conditioning unit from
an adjacent onsite catering kitchen
▪︎The onsite free to use bbq was a tad unkept and needed cleaning to our liking. So the bakery just a short walk away, made good for a couple of pies for 1 breakkie.

▪︎Free On-site guest laundry & dryer
📌 Just be aware that some of the tourist
To- Do activities may be closed on

Hi Annie, sorry to read your in-depth review of No microwave and no heating of food in room. No microwave in room to heat your breakfast. As we would have discussed on your arrival the reason for not having them in the rooms is people heat meals with very strong spicy smells and it is very hard to remove from the rooms. We would have offered you our kitchen for you to use the microwaves. Also we do provide breakfasts hot and cold at a cost to try and make a little extra money. I am a bit confused at the your comment on a drone sound from the adjacent kitchen, our kitchen is at the end of the motel rooms, not adjacent to the rooms and it has an evaporative cooler on the roof which we hardly ever uses. Thank you for your review and staying with us... stay safe.. cheers Donna

We stayed here on our recent holiday and were pleasantly surprised by how much this property had thought of little details such as washing powder sachets, shampoo and conditioner, soap, a clothes line, among other things.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which was very compact and very comfortable. The management were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

We will definitely be back🙂

From checking in, through to checking out, I cannot find a fault when staying at the Edward Parry motel in Tamworth. I have stayed at this motel for business and personal travel, and regardless of if I am travelling by myself for work, or with the family, I am always happy to be staying here as I know my stay will be comfortable and enjoyable. Donna and Vaughan are great hosts, always friendly, and always happy to please their customers. The premises cannot be faulted for cleanliness or essential facilities, and the home cooked meals are fantastic, and further add to the comfort for a weary traveller that is not always available at the average accommodation options.

Superb Accomodation! Highly reccomend Edward Parry Motel for Tamworth Country Music festival 2023 Michael and Lisa went above and beyond to deliver pristine quality rooms/accomodation, beautiful quality luxury beds to sleep in. Spotless bathroom facilties, Tea, coffee, Microwave and fridge in rooms. The Bbq and pool area is perfect to relax and enjoy the summers day. Location was perfect to access the centre of Tamworth city/festival. Highly recommend for families or couples. 10/10

I travelled with my son who was on business, Agquip 2023. A big advantage of this motel is that you can get meals delivered to your room. The salmon I ordered for dinner was delicious and we had a great, reasonably priced breakfast the next morning before we headed off. Our room was well appointed, clean and nice & warm! The owners were very friendly & helpful!

It's the little things that makes this motel outstanding.
Like the towel provided so you can wipe the frost from your car windows on a frosty morning.
Lovely, New & clean.
The bed was extremely soft.

How would you like, after a long days drive to be met by the most cheerful of hosts with a complimentary bottle of beer or glass of wine and smiles. You feel that they are really happy to see you and will defiantly put a smile on tired faces

Well that is how your stay will start and from then on everything else is wonderful.
The rooms are modern, well appointed with more than ample space. Everything was spotless, beds comfortable and the all important WIFI fast and glitch free.

The motel appears to be a little distant from Tamworth Central, however this is only due to the wetlands of the Goonoo Goonoo Creek A drive of 5 minutes has you in the central shopping strip and a huge Woolies.

A kilometre or so from the motel heading out of town is the Tourist Information Office and attached to this is the Big Golden Guitar and Music Museum. A must to visit if you want to understand the origins of the Tamworth Music Festival.

All in all a great place to stay and we will return on our next trip.

Good Fortune and thanks to the "Kelly Gang"
