Stopped here last weekend for two nights with a group of friends for a weekend away in Parkes. Yes, it is an older motel and could do with a freshen up but the rooms are clean, neat and tidy, the bathroom maybe from the 60's but the water pressure was good and hot...always a must. The owners Wendy and Owen... More

A small motel, well located for travellers passing through Parkes NSW. A friendly and efficient check in with all relevant information provided in regard to restaurants, fuel station etc. Rooms on the small side but they were clean and the bed comfortable an the shower water hot and plentiful which is all that is required after a long days drive.

Went to a business event in Parkes and didn't really want to get up at the crack of dawn to be on time. Shopped online and came up with the Clarinda. Room small and bathroom had no heating. The room light died after an hour, but hey the bedside light worked fine. A few cobwebs on the ceiling, but nothing... More

The Clarinda Motel appears to have been built about 30 to 40 years ago. Now that guests want Queen size beds in formally double bed rooms the usable room space is diminished. The room we were in with a Queen bed was quite adequate and clean. Eating places were about a 10 minute walk along Clarinda Street, the main street.The... More

Golden Chain $120/night - first impression - we saw the parking lot was full of dead leaves and the gardens were dead - we actually wondered if the motel was shut down when we drove in but it was late and we were tired. Basic motel queen unit, not the cleanest - there was mold in the shower and on... More

The motel facilities and decorations were of an older style but I had expected this from the photos. We booked three rooms and they were all clean and comfortable. The manager was very accommodating of our requests and helpful in suggesting places to visit in the area. We will definitely return when next in Parkes.

We recently stayed at this motel for one night. Whilst it is not 5 star, the rooms are very, very clean, great hot showers and wonderful facilities for travellers. The bedlinen was also of high quality something you don't normally find in a country motel. The rooms come with a microwave, toaster, cookies, tea and coffee facilities, shampoos etc. After... More
