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

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
