I stayed here a couple of weeks ago. I stayed near the back and couldn't really hear the highway at all. A few people have mentioned free wifi but there was nothing written in the room about this and no one told me. Didn't know about the Foxtel either and there was nothing in the room indicating this. Apart from... More

Reading some of the reviews I think there may be some rooms that have been refurbished and others not. We got a "not refurbished room". But we paid the same. The room was at the rear of the complex, so was quiet and the beds comfortable. Staff are friendly also. However, there were a few major issues - fridge froze... More

The room was comfortable and warm and clean. But the free breakfast was the best! Rice bubbles toast and juice in a dining room with loads of guitars. Will definitely a stay here again when in Tamworth.

Thank you what incredible people own this place! My daughter left her doll of 12 years at the hotel and the wonderful owners called us to let us know they had found her and even mailed her to us express post at our next destination! We will be back next time we are in Tamworth 😀thanks!!!

we were very disappointed with this motel, not very clean, decor outdated. I would recommend this Motel for workers travelling and needing a place to rest but for families travelling for a holiday it really doesn't do it. There is free Wifi but not worth using as it's so slow. Not sure what era the air con was from but... More

The room decor was dated, but clean and comfortable. Room to move. Unit was at front of complex, table and chairs available at front of unit. Some road noise at night. Did not affect sleep. Restaurant onsite - need to book. Easy drive into Tamworth

Hotel is well past its used-by date. Stairs leading to the rooms had dead cockroaches on it. A huntsman spider was in the room. The banging of the pipes when the next room had a shower was noticeable. The electrical cable to the blow dryer was wired to under the power point directly ILLEGALLY!!!!!! Bathroom sliding door when closed revealed... More

Sorry for your experience. We are on 3 acres and any dead bugs show our pest control is working, not happy that stairs were not swept. Cannot doing anything about a spider in room. Not sure of your expertise in the electrical area BUT hairdryers were installed by qualified electrician in same manner as I have observed in many motels... More

Cheap price but great value for money. Actually very surprised in the decor and quality, was expecting less. Great reception on tv and boiling hot water is always a winner. Lots of parking, seating and space.

Thanks for taking the time to respond. We are not perfect and try to look after our guests, so pleased you are happy. As can be seen from some reviews, some guests have unrealistic expectations on what they are paying for. More

Stopped here just the 1 night on our way home but could easily have stayed more. The rooms were very tidy, very quiet & above all else they were very comfortable. Breakfast was fresh. Staff were very nice

It's a 3 star motel so you don't really expect much. Checked in & got to our room, was pleasantly surprised with the size of the room. It wasn't the cleanest place I've stayed but not the dirtiest either. The BBQ as advertised was unusable as it was disgusting like it'd never been cleaned. The fish pond or well or... More

Thanks for taking time to respond. Fishpond area we are removing. Sorry BBQ was not checked it is supposed to be checked daily. Foxtel now sorted. We did put a note at desk and this caused issues as well. Thankfully no drama moving forward. Turns out wasn't air con so previous guest must have spilt something, sorry it wasn't noticed... More
