Good rooms and a better than average motel restaurant. Rooms clean and reception staff very helpful. Food at restaurant was well priced and good Australian fare. Wine was good value.

Room Tip: Get a ground floor room.

Clean spacious modern comfortable rooms. Great finishing touches. One of the best motel rooms I have stayed in. Motel is a bit out of town but gave us a good excuse to take a brisk walk in the morning. Ate in the restaurant for dinner and breakfast - good meals at a decent price.
Aside from the telescope another great attraction is the Henry Parkes Centre, which is brand new. It contains a fabulous Elvis exhibit, motor museum, local history museum and information centre.
Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here in November 2011 for one night for a quick trip to Parkes. Very convenient loation. An easy drive to the radio telescope about 20 kms from town.
Was in a ground floor room, under the stairs. Although not needed for me, this was a handicapped-accessible room. The only drawback was that the shower head, at its highest possible setting, was a little low for an average standing person.
The decor is hotel-standard. Room size was American-average. In room: flat screen TV with good selection of stations, hair dryer, small refrigerator with mini-bar beverages (they also provided *fresh* milk for coffee/tea!).
Although the room was under the stairs I did not noticed any noise from people going up/down stairs. I also did not notice any noise from the street, although the room was located relatively close to the street.
I had dinner and breakfast there, because I couldn't be bothered looking around for other places to eat. Not much to rave about (especially the continental breakfast which was over-priced for what you get).
The staff were very accommodating, helpful and friendly. The room was very comfortable, clean and quiet. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

All good, neat and tidy room, good food in restaurant and even reasonable mini bar prices.
Only complaint was the shower head flow wast pathetic saving water is one thing but it still needs to be functional. Otherwise would stay there again.

Stayed here on our trip from Melbourne to Coolum. Lovely room at a reasonable cost. Having an onsite restaurant is great after a long drive.
Spotlessly clean room, comfortable bed for a great nights sleep. Would recommend this property.
