The motel room was clean n spacious. No traffic noise n welcoming management. Just a short walk to a great restaurant at the Commercial Hotel. I wanted accommodation with no steps n park outside for security.

My sister and her son stayed for 8 nights over Christmas. Rooms were very comfortable and spotless. James was always helpful and attentive . They were sad to leave at the end of their stay. Will be first choice for next stay in Tenterfield.

Having stayed at this motel on a No of occasions whilst travelling through. The location is central, being within walking distance to everything in town. The rooms are standard motel style; however they are always clean & comfortable. The prices are reasonable & the service is always good. We recommend this as a great stop over motel.

This is a fantastic place to stay, very homely feeling, we done a lot of traveling over the holidays and stayed in a few motels, but the Peter Allen was by far the most affordable, friendly, comfortable stay we had.

Plenty of room in comfortable beds for our family of 2 adults and 4 children. Friendly staff and clean rooms. On the main road so easy for a stopover but still quiet at night. We would stay here again.

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...
