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.

Friendly welcome and well equipped room. Bed perfect not too soft or hard. AC works well. Nice and warm. Close to supermarket and eateries. Not disturbed by highway traffic. Great place for an overnight stay or as a base to visit the local attractions.

Friendly and welcoming. Neat and tidy room. Walking distance to pub and supermarket shops etc. Can’t go wrong, would definitely stay again. I recommend the Telegraph pub for dinner and Bad Manners for breakfast, all only a block away.

Close to everything, clean and comfortable. Great place to stop and spend 2 nights to explore the area around Tenterfield. Close to the the centre of town for easy walking and several really good food options that suited all budgets and group sizes.

We were in room 2 which was tucked right away from any carpark or road noise (though I don't think that'd be a big problem anyway). The room was a great size with everything you could need and a very comfortable bed. Great value for money too.

We were on route back to Sydney from outback QLD holiday. We needed a couple of days to relax from driving. The Manager at Jumbuck Motor was great, helpful with our request regarding our camper trailer and also provided some good advice about what to see and do in Tenterfield. The room was clean and very practical for our stay. I would stay here again without hesitation.

After a long journey we had a very comfortable stay, with all amenities totally to our satisfaction. A very central location, with an easy walk to restaurants. Most of all I would really like to comment on the friendly staff. Very pleasant and welcoming and a lovely receptionist was so helpful when we lost a wallet. She went especially to our room, located it and then took the trouble to post it to us. Thank you so much for your caring and honesty. I would recommend "The Jumbuck" for a happy experience in the picturesque town of Tenterfield.

We stayed for 1 night - it was comfortable and warm. The room was big enough for two of us and the bathroom was fine. The parking was a little crammed as our spot was in a corner, so we parked in another spot as the motor inn wasn't full.
