Friendly welcome from new owners (took over in May this year). The room was a good size and clean room for the two of us for 2 nights. Bed was firm, snug and fresh. Bathroom was functional and I loved the strong hot shower - amazing. New owners are serious about making your stay comfortable. There is evidence of their... More

Very rude owner, not welcoming at all! One of the single bed mattresses was caved in like an elephant had jumped on it and the bed frame itself was faulty and on a slope because it was missing a wheel. As for being non-smoking, the bathroom certainly smelt like an ashtray (which may be no fault of the owners) but... More

This motel was recommended to us by a relative who always stayed here when he was a sales rep. It's located just out of town on the way to "The Dish". The room we stayed in had been recently refurbished and was spotlessly clean throughout with a very comfortable bed and a good shower. Despite being on the highway, there... More

Lovely welcome, clean and well presented room. Great price, and value. Due to the extremely cold weather at the time, suggestions and tips from the owners were appreciated for my early start the next day. Free wi-fi was of good speed and useful.

Having stayed in a few motels as we traveled around NSW this was one of the best value for money and we had a pleasant stay. Read previous post about the owners being "anal" but think that says more about the author. As a non-smoking couple it makes such a difference entering a room where you know categorically there hasn't... More

We found it Very regimental bordering on anal with Rules and smoking. Shower NO pressure at all and bed was uncomfortable. Advertised room service was very limited, then on further enquiry was told to head to restraunt up the road. Better choices available.

Good overnight stay. Although the rooms are not that big, they are clean and comfortable. The room had fridge and tea/coffee. Nice toiletries and good bed. Good connection for free wifi. The small pool was small,but clean. The hotel is 5 min drive from town centre.

After making a booking I didn't actually get to stay there. I had to cancel my booking due to unforeseen circumstances - my riding bubby sold his bike. The booking had been made and paid for through a third party site (not Trip Advisor) but try as I might I couldn't see how to cancel it and get my credit... More

I have been visiting Parkes for business and pleasure for the past 15 years and have always stayed at The Spanish Lantern. There is consistency in the service and quality of the rooms. Rooms are impeccably clean and the grounds are well manicured. Lovely pool area with plenty of sun. Owners are welcoming.

Thought the owners were typical no nonsense country people who run one of the cleanest and quietest motels I have stayed in a long time. The room we stayed in was reasonably spacious and light, unlike another motel stayed in at Young on the same trip, which was dusty and noisy with other guests smoking and talking outside our bathroom...
