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.

It's an unpretentious, 3-star amenities, roadside motel in the main street shopping centre of Tenterfield, opposite supermarket
Rooms at the back are probably quieter. We have slept well whenever we have stayed here.
Rooms are clean and spacious, beds are comfortable, microwave and toaster supplied as well as the usual tea, coffee, electric jug and small frig.
The newly renovated Commercial Hotel about 500 metres up the street serves delicious meals, not regular pub food.

Room is not large but spacious enough. Nice layout with separate bathroom, small kitchenette and bedroom. Toaster, kettle, microwave, plenty of extra blankets, pillows, iron and ironing board. Good size TV. Complimentary water and milk in fridge which was on, cold and not frosted up. Spotlessly clean, electric blankets and comfy beds. Perfect location in centre of CBD. Supermarket, pubs, cafes all a short walk. Easy checkin. Parking at your door, although some was a little sloppy or rough if travelling by motorbike. Would still recommend. Good value.

Good value, has all the usual bits & bobs, (microwave, toaster, kettle etc), close to the centre of town if you want to eat out.

Great size room, very comfortable and best of all the shower head is big enough i don't have to run around to get wet.

Highly recommended.

Stayed two weeks, was accidentally overcharged, despite the manager’s promise of a refund, still waiting while he ignores me.
Seems to me their accounting method needs updating.

As for the motel room, it was the older style room in so much that it was larger than most newer motels.
Cleaning was done by cheerful staff. BBQ area was handy as was supermarket across the street.
There was very little highway noise and quite a few cafes nearby.

It was a very smelly unit, the room smelling of cigarette smoke and the toilet smelling as well. No ventilation fan in the shower/toilet. Loose windows and they have made no attempt to muffle the sound, so it is very noisy, being right on the highway. On a positive note, there was a bed, four walls and a ceiling

Stayed two nights here. The room is a bit dated but very spacious with comfortable bed, table and chairs, as well as a microwave. Good bathroom with plenty of space to put own toiletries. Shower gel and shampoo supplied.
The TV on the wall is a bit small for the size of the room and could be more centrally located in relation to the bed.
Good location in town, handy to everything. Very reasonably priced.
Only one small complaint…. the air conditioner was quite old and very noisy but effective in keeping the room warm. Overall a pleasant stay and would definitely stay here again.

This is the second time we have stayed at this motel. Whilst not the Ritz (and this was reflected in the price point) the room was clean, warm and represented good value for money. The location of the place is excellent, with a pub serving good meals adjoining the motel. Parking was undercover and the place was quiet- all points that make this place worth staying at.

On the main road within walking distance to super market, eateries etc. Easy access to most attractions near by.
Room spacious but a bit dark for our aging eyes, 1 light bulb fused on arrival. Average cleanliness, but a bit smelly.
Reception unattended most of the times, though there was a ph number one can call.
You get what you paid for I supposed

Well priced family suite that we were able to walk in and take for a night. Would recommend it for a good night's sleep, quiet, clean and comfortable. Centrally located in Tenterfield. Air-conditioned, walk to local food shops.

We chose this motel based on the name by the famous singer, “but what a disappointment”.

Firstly we had to ask for a suitcase support, as none supplied initially.

It said Wifi - as the staff assured us with some short drop outs - but it did not work at all !

It said Netflix - but it did not work either !

To highlight our concerns attached is a photo of their frontage sign.
