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. The rooms were meticulously clean with air-con or heating. Beds really comfortable and Tea/coffee making facility, fridge and Toaster in rooms. Also parking is directly in front... More

Good quality country accommodation in the centre of town, close to the main eating choices. Rooms are good size, well laid out. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Overall a good experience. If you can't go to Rio go to Tenterfield!

We have stayed here twice. The first time was absolutely wonderful! We stayed here as a stop off point on our way to Byron Bay, which we visit annually. Because our first stay was so lovely we decided to stay here the second time, last year in September. Again the stay was lovely and it is still one of the... More

We had an enjoyable stay in this nice quiet motel. Although on the highway there was no noise. The welcome was very friendly and the recommendation of the Bowling Club to eat was a good one. The heater in the room was very efficient - an important factor in Tenterfield!

A lovely motel with everything needed by travellers. A warm welcome and good advice on where to eat. Comfy bed with quality linens. Bathroom with plenty of hot water and toiletries. Toaster and kettle for breakfast. I would have to rate this motel among those that are cleanest and have the tidiest grounds. It's a lovely stop. Even the early... More

I always stay at the Peter Allen Motel if visiting in Tenterfield overnight. The owners are wonderful and very friendly. The rooms are well equipped and the beds are so comfortable. Handy to town - just park the car at the motel and walk across the road. Car parking undercover, which is a bonus.
