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

Though the motel room initially appeared basic it had everything you might need and was clean and beds comfortable. Owners very friendly. Had a room at the back of the motel with no road noise and on opening the curtains in the morning saw a peaceful scene of farmyard animals which added to the country atmosphere.

Overnight stopover on our way back to Queensland. Why did we pick this motel - The sign said Free WiFi intewrnet. Staff werte most pleasant; the room was clean and comfortable. And the WiFi worked. Road noise was not a problem either. Tarrif was most reasonable. A nice touch was the car window washers outside the units for travellers use.... More

Rang to book as we needed a late check in. I also asked if there was room for a portacot. When we arrived at 11.30pm not only had the spare bed been moved to allow more room for the portacot, but they'd also turned the heater on for us. It's a shame we had to leave early the next day... More

Very helpful and friendly staff, lovely clean room, bed wasn,t bad so had a good nights sleep ready to travel on the next day. Nearby facility's were very good and reasonably priced. I would have no difficulty in recommending this place for a stay.
