A group of us travelled from Brisbane on our motorbikes so we could check out a couple of the local historical places and also I had heard that the Commercial Hotel was worth a visit. We booked into this motel as it was a really great price and was close to the above mentioned hotel. The service we received when... More

Right in centre of town - an old fashioned country Pub for meals just around the corner. Comfortable bed, enough room for the 2 of us. Friendly Motel cat to greet you! For an overnighter... More

The room was clean and the bed was reasonably comfortable. The free WiFi was good. The heating system and electric blankets worked a treat during the cold night. We... More

Ok the name almost put us off but there was no sequinned dancers prancing around with maracas, just a clean comfortable budget motel. Owners take a lot of care with the details which is always nice in small country towns, much more pleasant than big city chain hotels. Comfortable beds, friendly staff, warm room, very clean, convenient location. I really... More

Ok it's not the Hilton but a good well maintained and friendly Motor Inn. I stayed at the Peter Allan with the family when temperature was getting well below zero. With electric blankets and A/C we found it to be warm and comfortable. It is well located on the main road and short stroll to town and Coles across the... More

Stayed here overnight on our way to the Gold Coast. We had a 2 bedroom family room. Room was clean and the beds comfortable and warm. Staff were helpful and there is a Coles across the road. There was no high way noise

Overall, basic and ok. Quiet enough and undercover parking. Only issues were told seniors discount not available despite being advertised, wifi limited to two devices and cut out at about 8am just as we were reading the emails and the news. Noisy air on too.

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

James B, Owner at Peter Allen Motor Inn, responded to this review

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
