“Clean and comfortable stop over.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

My 2 young sons and I stayed for a night earlier this week. I chose the motel based on the reviews on this site and because it had a pool - a must for the kids.

The reviews were accurate - the room (16) was very clean, comfortable, spacious (easily fitted 3 beds with room to move) and quiet. The newly renovated bathroom was immaculate and Wade, one of the owners, was very friendly. Unfortunately the pool was closed for renovation which, on a 42 degree day and after 5 1/2 hours driving, caused great disappointment. Wade was kind enough to point us in the direction of a local pool, which had a huge slide, and provided hours of entertainment.

All in all, a clean, comfortable place to stay with hosts who a friendly and helpful.

Thank you very much for your positive review. I apologise for the delay in providing a response. Unfortunately your visit coincided with a pool refurbishment program that was running behind schedule. Our secluded pool area has now been resurfaced with a low-slip product that is very pleasing to the eye. We have also installed new landscaping, furniture and a shade sail to cover half the pool from the afternoon sun. All in all, the pool and BBQ area look terrific and whilst it is late in the season, our guests should get plenty of value from the completed works next summer.

This was out second stay at the Country Capital, attracted by the reasonable rates for a two room suite which allows my daughter to sleep soundly while my husband snores! Arrived after reception closed, key was waiting for us as promised, but found that we were in a room different to the one that I thought I had booked. Lucky to catch the on site managers coming home from some shopping, and they were more than happy to put us in the room that we wanted, didn't make a big deal out of it being my mistake rather than their's, nothing was too much trouble. Beautifully clean and well-presented inside, this is a comfy, secure, and hospitable place that will continue to enjoy our custom very time we're in town. Welcome email an follow-up emails were nice touches. Highly recommended.

Thanks Bugglemum. We were only too happy to move you to the room that you expected. Guest satisfaction is very important to us. We enjoy having a high rate of repeat custom and it seems that we have been successful in attracting and keeping your business for 2 stays and hopefully many more in the future. It is rewarding for both Mandy and I, and our staff to hear that a guest has enjoyed their stay and that they were satisfied with the ever important issues of price, comfort, and cleanliness.

Wonderful place to stay and great value for money. Genuine hospitality without pretence, reasonably priced and the sort of friendliness you need after 5hours travelling. Very tastefully refurbished and spotlessly clean. Helpful local tips were much appreciated. As retirees we travel a lot and would recommend this establishment without reservation. Thank you Wade and Mandy.

Thank you very much for your review. Guest feedback, both negative and positive, drives our business and helps us achieve our goals. We do not want to be just another motel, but a motel that guests are happy to keep coming back to and are happy to tell their friends and colleagues about. Again, thank you.

After a long drive from St George we were received with friendly smiles and a clean, quiet and well equipped room. We had decided to stay there based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. Wade and Mandy are lovely.

Room Tip: Ground floor at the back is our choice.

After a long drive, this was a very comfortable place to stay. The room was quite spacious and very reasonably priced. The host was very friendly and gave us a good recommendation for dinner which was the local rugby league club. Overall - highly recommended.

Thank you Gary H for your positive words. Along with our housekeeping staff, we strive to provide all travellers with the highest possible level of cleanliness, comfort, and value. Our property is officially rated at 3.5 stars which we elected over the 4 star rating offered by AAATourism. This keeps our standards exceptionally high, but our tariffs below comparable motels. We hope to see you again and I will pass on your review to our staff..

We were passing through Tamworth so just wanted a reasonably priced place as a one night stop-over - a browse of the reviews on here and check of the rates and we decided to give this place a go. So glad we did! The room was clean and spacious with all the amenities we would need. The pool was so, so welcome after a long, tiring, sweaty drive, and my wife - who is very fussy about these things - says it was the most comfortable bed she's slept on in a long, long time! The location is ideal - a short stroll to the Leagues club for a meal and drink (and if I remember right we also got a discount there by flashing our room key) and a small shopping complex with Coles etc to stock up on essentials for the next leg of our trip.
Unfortunately I'm not sure when we'll be heading back to Tamworth - but I know EXACTLY where we'll be staying when we do! Many thanks.

Had a very great night, great value. The room was wonderful and comfortable for both me and my baby. The permanent cot in the family room was great and the microwave to heat his bottles was perfect and well thought out. The staff are friendly and accommodating. Recommend to anyone. Thanks, will definitely be back.

On behalf of my wife and our staff, thank you for taking the time to review our motel. Having our own small child gives us some insight into what families might require in their motel room to make a stay comfortable. As a family owned and operated business we are all too aware of the pressures on families to get the best value for money in accommodation, and we hope that we meet and exceed the mark in terms of value, comfort and cleanliness.
