Easy check in, clean and tidy room with a comfortable bed and a nice hot shower. An easy stop on our road trip. Booked a room away from the road but unfortunately the room wasn’t as soundproof as we hoped so woke a few times during the night with the noise from the trucks but that’s to be expected when staying on a main road. A HUGE compendium with so much information about the local area and its history which I would have loved to have read but time didn’t allow on this trip.

Passing through overnight stay, in late out early. Pretty basic room , outdated, TV handing off the wall, etc, the only good part was it didn’t cost much. In my opinion there’s not between the best and worst hotel rooms. This was definitely towards the bottom but serviceable and cheap.

We stayed here 2 nights at a very reasonable rate. The motel has new owners who have only been there 3 weeks. They were very friendly & helpful even leaving extra biscuits when I mentioned that my hubby liked them. Nothing was any trouble. The room was big & very clean. Plenty of room to put our stuff. Parking was right outside.They had a folder in the room with everything we needed to know & more. It was full of interesting things to do & see along with very interesting stories of the history of the town. I wish every Motel had these as its the first thing I look for when I stay somewhere. Overall we had a fantastic visit & would not hesitate to stay here again.

Clean, comfortable, central and brilliant value for money. Great place to stop for the night. Best bed and shower we’ve had in our travels so far. We would highly recommend this motel and will definitely stop again next time we are passing through

We have stayed in most of the available accommodation sites in Tenterfield and the Jumbuck is definitely the best bang for your buck! Around $160 for a huge family room. The lady at the front desk was by far the most personable staff member encountered throughout our stays in Tenterfield. Absolutely lovely. We were so happy to open the door to the family room. So much space, and also the cleanest of the places we have stayed in Tenterfield. Immaculate. Fresh milk provided on arrival. Room was modern and stylish which surprised us for the price! (Others in Tenterfield charge 200 for dirty, outdated rooms. Would recommend as the best accomodation in town!
