Clean, simple, dated but perfect for a brief stay. Had everything we needed and cheapest we could find. No complaints from us - some noise from the road in one of the front rooms we stayed in but I knew that going in. Reception staff were very polite - didn't try the food so can't comment on the quality there.... More

As overnight visitors to Tamworth we had not realised that there was a major event in the region and we were very limited in our choices of a motel. Most motels were fully booked.In the circumstances price was certainly attractive but now we know why! We had booked a "Queen Room" but as we arrived and booked in, for reasons... More

My husband and I stayed two nights at this hotel. Our room was nicely appointed behind the main building, shielding us from the noise of the Armidale Road. The room was nicely furnished and pleasantly surprised to find a microwave and toaster. The bathroom looked a little tired, however, there was plenty of hot water - lovely on a cold... More

The cheapest place I could find in Tamworth besides the pub or a caravan park. $89. Straight forward check in. The sheets were gorgeous and the same as I'd find at more expensive places. OK, so the pillows were lumpy and the shower didn't have pressure, but for the price it was better than expected. Being on the highway I... More

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
