Easy walking to pubs & dining places in town. A lot of Australian motels have a problem with free good wifi. I got a free 250MB voucher for 1 device. We had 3. Europe, Canada & USA don't limit devices

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I note your comments about WiFi access and would like to point out that we don't restrict the amount of devices you can use. I'm sorry if you found that you weren't given enough vouchers. We'll put that situation right. Look forward to your next stay. More

The hotel is right in the centre of town. The rooms are clean and tidy. There is under cover parking in front of each room. It was a little cool in Tenterfield, but the rooms had reverse cycle air con and electric blankets. The hot water in the shower was great! It didn't seem noisy. The owners were friendly and... More

Very clean handy to everything. The manager was friendly and informative. Beds were extremely comfortable. Despite being on the New England Highway it was quiet .Good base to explore a spectacular area.

We have been stopping in Tenterfield for many years. This motel is in the centre of town, cheap and comfortable. We find Tenterfield cold and units are warm with air conditioning (if you wish) and extra blankets. It is easy to make breakfast with small fridge toaster and jug. Managers are friendly and happy to give advice. 2 minute walk... More

Arrived at 130pm and we were able to check in early which was great. 2 bedroom room gave us (2 adults and 2 teenagers) plenty of space. Bathroom was a little dated but it was clean and the beds were super comfortable. Room came equipped with fridge, microwave, toaster and kettle. Location is right in the middle of town and... More

Professional friendly welcome, check in simple. Room impeccably clean, particularly the bathroom. Undercover parking outside room. Spacious room, room 11 was quiet. Historical information provided was an excellent guide to touring the town.

A well maintained and centrally located motel in Tenterfield. Arrived after 7 hours on the road and appreciated the friendly and informative greeting on check-in. Our request for a room away from the road had been noted on our internet reservation and fulfilled. Room was a good size, clean and with good luggage rest areas. A nearby Thai restaurant was...

We stopped by at Tenterfield on a road trip down the New England Highway. The Peter Allen Motor Inn was a welcome place to stay. Although it isn't very flashy (probably 1970s-era), it is a great value and comfortable place to stay. We had a two-bedroom family room which worked well with the kids. We had a friendly welcome when... More
