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.

Warm greeting awaits you! Lots of little,extras to make your stay comfortable. A faulty electric blanket was replaced very promptly. Plenty of hot water for your shower and lots of room on the bathroom bench for your toiletries.

I booked this motel through Hotels.com for $105 which was average value. The building looked like a standard older motel but the room was clean, comfortable and quite pleasant. It is situated on the main road and is one of the closest motels to the edge of the town centre. Everything in town was within easy walking distance for us.... More

We stayed here on a very wet, cold and miserable night, the room was very clean with a good heater which made the room very cosy, great hot showers and a very comfortable bed. The establishment is very reasonably priced, right in the middle of town, the only downfall is the towels are very thin and need replacing.
