This was once a swank motel. You can tell from the design and architecture. The fact it is not any more is almost certainly down to management. This place is tired and has been allowed to become that way. In my room, the curtains were full of moth holes, the chair fabric was stained and the shower recess was old... More

Our first nights accommodation on our four week trip and we found the bed uncomfortable and guests will be charged $25.00 extra if they leave a light on or TV on departure. Dated décor is still in the 1970's

The Motel was closed when we arrived around 2 pm on Sunday 19th October 2014. The proprietor was annoyed that we disturbed his afternoon TV, asking us if we had a booking, he then proceeded to tell us that the Motel was closed after 10am on Sundays. I thought why book us knowing our arrival date & time. The lodgings... More

I would never stay at this place. The owner is rude, unprofessional, arrognant and has no concept of human compassion. Lucky for my partner and myself when we went up the road a little the man at the motel was very welcoming and friendly.

En route from SYD to BNE we simply needed a bed for the night. Normally we stay in Guyra but most motels there are pretty primitive. This place offered a quiet location away from the highway, a restaurant if required, quite a large room with dining table & importantly electric blankets with "Swiss water", ie., instantly hot for showers but...

It is sad when so many people who stay here and take the time in writing about there stay, the owner or management dont take note. Sadly I didn't checkout trip adviser before booking and used booking.com. I was sucked in by the nice websites pictures. All I needed was a place to stay for work. Like all the reviews... More

On the road we stopped here for one night seeking a clean bed hot shower and easily obtained dinner. Although dated the NEML is convenient and did offer restaurant service. Additionally its site extended through to the main street of Glen Innes, Grey Street. We had stayed here some years ago in room closer to the New England Highway. This... More

Convenient location close to major takeaways, shops, clubs and hotels. Clean, comfortable bed, electric blankets and air-con. Decor dated, bathroom would benefit from renovation. Cafe serves meals. Staff friendly.
