This motel is on the corner of a major road but doesnt feel like it as there is a bypass that a lot of cars and trucks use so noise is not an issue here. The rooms are very well furnished and have mini bar and air conditioning with good parking and multi road access. The restaruant is an award... More

Stopped here because I was tired. Surprised by the price but the room was spotless, nicely appointed and quiet. King bed. The restaurant is expensive and one of those where vegetables are extra cost as is almost everything else. I don't understand that as other than profiteering. Having said that the steak I had was excellent, cooked to perfection and... More

Although this motel is on a main road, traffic noise was unnoticeable. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in & the bathroom had a proper bath. The motel was only a block from Peel St & easy to drive in & out of. Did not eat at the restaurant although the menu looked nice but... More

We stayed here for a few nights during Christmas whilst visiting family. We had 5 or so hours from Sydney on Christmas Eve and were greeted by friendly and helpful staff - the check in process was quick and easy and our room was ready which is always great after a long car trip. We stayed in room 55 which... More

Arrived for 1 night bed was clean and very comfortable but the rest of the room needs a total overhaul. Spa bath was black and worn, paint off walls and plaster patch ups everywhere. Carpet was old needed replacing and bench cupboards need replacing. Reception was welcoming but would not stay here again unless they did a total revamp.

I can assure you we are in the process of renovating all our guest rooms, perhaps if you choose to stay again, you could try one... More

Arrived at end of very long day and a little travel weary. Two rooms in suite configuration awaited us. Well appointed and comfortable. Staff on desk efficient and pleasant. Capped off day with very nice dinner in their restaurant. The steak would have rivalled many in more upmarket dining halls. The staff serving on table were local and laid back... More

Tamworth motels are overpriced because they can regularly fill the house due to the many sporting events in the city. I struggled to convince myself that I received $139.00 of value for a standard room. Pros - the bed linen was fresh and white...love the doona arrangement. The bathroom was very clean including the shower curtain. Internet was free and... More
