I have to say I was really please with the standard of service and my room at the Grenfell Motel in March 2015. I stayed in the Paris themed room and It was beautifully decorated and clean. I had every thing I am used to, fridge, TV , Microwave, air con. The rooms are not huge but are very comfortable... More

An oldie but a goodie. Room was reasonable size and quite clean. Great shower - hot and plenty of water. Bed was comfortable. Quiet although not many staying at the time. Check in lady was pleasant and quick. Certainly not up market but more than adequate for our overnight stay. Would happily stay there again.

Whenever I get to visit Grenfell inevitably I get to stay at Grenfell Motel. Located centrally in town within walk of everything and next door to the IGA and at a rate that will not hurt the pocket. Includes fridge, microwave, toaster, wall mounted AC, flat screen TV, electric blankies. I was unable to rate it at 'average' or 'very... More

Stayed at the Grenfell Motel with the wife recently for only one night and it was okay. If you are looking for five star, modern accomodation look elsewhere but ....................if you are looking for a clean and affordable room with a comfy bed, tele, microwave and a decent shower then this place fits the bill. There is an IGA supermarket... More

We booked in to Grenfell Motel despite all the negative reviews. We booked 6 rooms and arrived expecting something terrible, but were very pleasantly surprised. Yes, the place is old but it as also very clean. Sheets, carpet, curtains, bathroom were all clean. The mattresses did not sag, they were very comfortable. The owner allowed us to use the kitchen...

This would have to be the worst place I've ever stayed. Unfortunately it's the only Motel in Grenfell and due to lack of competition the owners can charge what they want, and unfortunately don't appear to have spent a cent on the place since 1970. The room was $85, about as small as a single Ibis Budget room and is... More

I have 24 reviews, and most of my reviews are positive, and I consider myself fair, but my advice for this motel is don't stay there, stay at a bed & breakfast or other alternative. The beds are very poor and old, and sag terribly. The lamp light on the wall fell on my wife, and I was charged in... More

first time review, long time reader. As a travelling sales person in which I cater to most rural towns of 2000-5000 population I am use to staying in small town motels. My expectations are not high however some mod-cons are expected. The Grenfell Motel would have to be in the bottom 2 motels I've stayed in. Although the owner means... More

When I walked into my room at the Grenfell Motel it was like coming to my Nanna's for a holiday. The period dressing table that served as a desk had gorgeous hand embroidered doilies under the glass top and a Regency striped stool to sit on. The small cane table and chairs provided featured a lovely starched white doiley and... More
