We had a recent 4 night stay here with a large group of friends. $110/ night for a queen bed and a single bed. No cutlery, 2 mugs, had to ask for extra bowl to have cereal. Rooms were clean but very tired. Right on the edge of town so you'll need your own transport. As the title says get... More

After reading some terrible reviews about this motel I expected the worst. It depends on what you want in a place to stay during the country music festival at Tamworth. It is located a short drive from Peel Street. It was clean, had good flowing hot water in the shower. The soap dispensers were full. The sheets were clean. The... More

Hubby was tired and stubborn to leave and we were only there Thank Goodness for just one nite. Worst Place in... More

This motel has had some bad reviews in the past but is apparently under new management. I stayed for 2 nights and the staff were friendly and the room was quiet, clean and comfortable. It is not a high end motel but provides good budget accommodation. Comfortable bed, big screen TV with Foxtel and a nice clean bathroom. Free WiFi.... More

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
