Having stayed in a few motels as we traveled around NSW this was one of the best value for money and we had a pleasant stay. Read previous post about the owners being "anal" but think that says more about the author. As a non-smoking couple it makes such a difference entering a room where you know categorically there hasn't... More

We found it Very regimental bordering on anal with Rules and smoking. Shower NO pressure at all and bed was uncomfortable. Advertised room service was very limited, then on further enquiry was told to head to restraunt up the road. Better choices available.

Good overnight stay. Although the rooms are not that big, they are clean and comfortable. The room had fridge and tea/coffee. Nice toiletries and good bed. Good connection for free wifi. The small pool was small,but clean. The hotel is 5 min drive from town centre.

After making a booking I didn't actually get to stay there. I had to cancel my booking due to unforeseen circumstances - my riding bubby sold his bike. The booking had been made and paid for through a third party site (not Trip Advisor) but try as I might I couldn't see how to cancel it and get my credit... More

I have been visiting Parkes for business and pleasure for the past 15 years and have always stayed at The Spanish Lantern. There is consistency in the service and quality of the rooms. Rooms are impeccably clean and the grounds are well manicured. Lovely pool area with plenty of sun. Owners are welcoming.

Thought the owners were typical no nonsense country people who run one of the cleanest and quietest motels I have stayed in a long time. The room we stayed in was reasonably spacious and light, unlike another motel stayed in at Young on the same trip, which was dusty and noisy with other guests smoking and talking outside our bathroom...

At $95 a night we could not ask for more. Apart from being the only ones there, the room was clean and quiet and spacious. The pool was inviting on a very hot day. The staff were quite polite and treated us well contrary to other comments we had n issues. Would stay here again

After reading the other reviews I had wondered what I had let myself in for! This motel is a typical Aussie country motel. We booked the family room. The room was large, had separate toilet and bathroom, had a queen, two singles and a fold out bed sofa. The rooms have everything you need (A/C, bath, shower, toaster, tea/coffee) but... More

This is the absolute worst treatment I have ever recieved from a motel in my life. Upon checking in we were immediately outkast & spoken rudely to, due to being smokers. We were eventually arranged into other rooms & told where we could smoke which was fine with us, however our rooms needed to be swapped because smokers smell. We... More
