When travelling through Tenterfield, we always choose to stay at the Peter Allen Motel. You are always assured of a clean and comfortable room for your overnight stay. We always ask for a room at the rear of the motel, as this motel is located on the highway. It is a short walk to the main shopping area of Tenterfield,...

Owners were friendly and helpful. Room was clean and large. Good central location. I loved the connection to singer/composer Peter Allen ( one of my favourites). Even though it was on the main street, traffic noise was not a problem.

Would have liked to review this motor inn better, because they do try to make it nice, but it is too close to the highway (our room was next to the road - which was odd, as the motel wasn't full) and there hasn't been any effort to blanket the constant rumble of trucks and bikes down the highway all...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm surprised and disappointed by your comments. None of our rooms sit next to the road and the solid brick construction of our building usually results in very positive comments about lack of road noise. I can't count the number of positive comments I receive about our beds which are...

We stayed here with our two daughters on the way from Newcastle to the Gold Coast. There is a LOT of choice of accomodation in town and we have previously stayed in this town two years ago at another place that was ok but not convenient for the city centre. So, armed with Trip Advisor, we investigated the other choices...

There is plenty of choice for accommodation in Tenterfield. We chose Peter Allen on TAs reviews and I'm a bit of a fan:) It is very conveniently located in the Centre of town across from Coles. The lady that greeted us was very friendly. The too rate reasonable. It is a traditional motel, dated but clean and all that you...

We recently stayed here on a business trip as a group of five, with five seperate rooms. The rooms were clean and tidy and the price reasonable. We ended up staying an extra night because of poor weather and what really made the place for me was the owner who was extremely friendly and helpful. I would stay here again...

We stayed overnight on a Sunday. It was very quiet in the township. The accommodation was good and the bed was comfortable. The facility was clean and tidy. However when we went out for the evening meal there was very little open . We found a Thai restaurant which was satisfactory and the meal was nice .

Stayed here with a group of friends. Wonderful option for a "close to all "in the lovely town. Walk to the main area of shopping, dining or a pop in to the hotels.
