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

We had a group of 5 adults and we had a family room. The staff were very accommodating and helpful. The room was great. Separate room with a bunk and a singe. The main room had a queen and another single. Very clean and tidy. Pubs and cafes are only a few blocks away. I would stay there again. (Motor... More

Arriving in a country town late in the evening and picking at random a motel that's still open is always a crapshoot, but last night we got lucky. We arrived at the Peter Allen Motor Inn just after 8:30pm and after accepting a room (being offered a seniors discount without having to ask) I asked if there would be a... More

We were travelling from the Hunter Valley to Brisbane and decided to break our journey at Tenterfield. We had not pre-booked and selected the Peter Allen Motor Inn for its central location. We were pleasantly surprised at quality of the room, clean, neat and tidy, with WiFi, and flat screen TV. We thought that there might be some highway noise... More

Great little place in Tenterfield, Sue and James really looked after us, we were a group of 9 couples having some riding fun over the long weekend. Our rooms were clean and tidy, our bikes were under cover, close to a bottle shop and not far from restaurants, but we requested a BBQ for our group and Sue and James... More

From our initial phone enquiry & booking to all contact with the motel managers, we were impressed with both their helpfulness and friendliness. There was a big welcoming smile even before we went inside the office! We noticed that same friendliness to other people staying at the motel. We got a very welcome discount with our free Golden Chain card.... More

This is a very clean & comfortable Motel. It is in town in the main street but there is no traffic noise. The rooms are large and well equipped. We were welcomed by James who was very helpful and full of information about the area. A very pleasant place to stay.

We stayed here recently for two nights. With three kids we are sometimes limited as to where we can stay. Not only could this Motor Inn accommodate us but it could do it comfortably and for a reasonable price. The kids were thrilled to have a separate room and their own television and so were we! The owners were very... More

We thought that this motel would be basic, but what a surprise. Room was large with a sofa and table and chairs. The room was Clean and tidy, and the bathroom spotless. Little things like a bowl of mints, the bucket and squeegee for the windscreen gives it a warm touch. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Would stay again... More
