It is a pity we didn't check the room properly on arrival. Room, on first impressions was reasonable. Travelled back into Tamworth for sightseeing and evening meal and entertainment. When arrived back at motel, used the toilet by lifting the seat to find dried excrement on the outer bowl and under the seat. Loved the sanitary seal label. Had shower... More

Don't believe the negative reviews. I have travelled and found people complain about hotels everywhere. I found the staff helpful and the rooms very tidy and good value for money. DVD players, Laundry Powder and amenities are provided. If you like a visit to a Country Town, this place is very good. Alot of hotels don't provide half the stuff... More

Despite the bad reviews, my stay at the Colonial Inn Motel was very pleasant & for only $79, it is Great Value.!! :) After reading the bad reviews, I did had my concerns. Understanding some visitors may have had too much expectations from a "3.5 star" Motel, bad reviews is expected. Traveling solo from Queensland into South Australia, I needed... More

We booked in advance online but couldn't find it upon arrival because they'd had a blackout so were driving around looking for somewhere else then they called and said power was back. We checked in and immediately noticed a hole the size of a tennis ball on the fly screen of a front window which had been left open (it... More

Upon arriving after the time I had advised I would, the room wasn't ready as they were painting it. There was a bit of confusion & then they moved me into another room. I paid $79 for the room & think for the price, it was reasonable. It was clean & comfortable. I had access to the communal laundry with... More

Anyone who experienced a good time here obviously did not talk to owner Sheena who is rude and treats her guests as a burdon...DO NOT BOOK A ROOM HERE..They claim breakfast included but did not receive it.

Booked a family room for four. Room was OK but the reception staff was totally indifferent at check in. Plenty of signs advising that on site Bistro would open at 6 pm. But by 6.30 pm door was locked. On enquiry told by this same person that you had to reserve and as we had not done so she had... More

The lovely young employee and room attendant who checked me in was left to her own devices, management not around at check in time. My room in the cheaper annexe, not facing the pool, was delightfully furnished with retro trimmings and the aircon was excellently quiet and powerful in the extreme heat - that was a big plus. There's no... More

Stay far away from this motel, Extremely rude and unreasonable. As soon as i had paid i knew i made a mistake. Flea ridden bed, the smell of sewerage was disgusting when you sat outside. I have now read some other reviews and I agree with them all so wont go on about it. So much potential for the right... More
