“Nice stay”
Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

We stayed one night over the Christmas period driving through to Tamworth. We found everything to be clean and staff most helpful. The room was very nicely decorated, the bed comfortable and the bathroom had a good size shower.

This hotel is run by it's owners (I believe) which means that they care and appreciate your business.

It's easy to establish an excellent repoire with the staff and they are always keen on hearing your travelling story.

The rooms are small but offer as much room as any other standard hotel. Very well designed rooms with a corrugate steel feature on the bathroom exterior walls. Though simple, this gives the rooms a unique feel and a kind of rustic atmosphere.

Unfortunately the Motel is situated a little out of town, but it offers restaurant for meals. You can request a microwave (do this in advance as they don't have 20 microwaves to give out which is understandable for a Motel).

I would stay at this place even though it's not in walking distance of the shops as the staff/owners are exceptionally nice and will go above and beyond (sometimes offering to have a beer with you) to make your stay the best in Parkes.

Thanks Margaret and John. "True Blue" service and "True Blue" people (if you don't know what True Blue means, look at the definition of Loyal in the dictionary).

Room Tip: The lower rooms offer a semi-private balcony. Not sure about the top rooms. Check out the restaura...

I have stayed all over the place and The Station is the best place I have stayed in a while. The friendly staff are always there to help out or have a chat, and at the end of a long work day that can be all you need. But then you get to your room. Unbelievable comfort. The decor in the room really suits the location. The restaurant is top shelf too. I always pull up a seat at the bar and eat my food. Such a great place to go, and I will be back here for sure

Big call but I'm going to make it - Great rooms that are clean and modern, comfortable big bed, great shower, super friendly staff, delicious breakfast with espresso coffee. Air Con was really quiet and our room at the back was very quiet.

Loved it and should I ever have to go back to Parkes, though god knows why anyone would go to that town by choice, this Motel is a must. A bit of Sydney by the Dish.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms toward the back away from the main road.

Very happy here. We (our company staff) stay often. Thank you to both J & M for their effort in making us feel at home. Much appreciated.

Often willing to make us dinner or lunch on weekends when the kitchen is closed. Sometimes they make us dinner when we fly in late (after 21h00).

My husband & i stayed here on our way to bendigo from brisbane. Our room was a good size, very clean and had everything we needed, in a tastefully decorated room that included mini orb cladding on one wall to tie in with the exterior. Bed was comfortable and staff were very helpful including giving us a room toward the back of the motel to get away from any oossible highway noise when we asked for this. The temporary managers that were on hand at the time were very nice and even chatted to us during dinner. The food and service was great, tho a little pricey. We visited "the dish" while there, very interesting! Would definitely use this motel again.

We used Trip Advisor comments to choose our hotel stay in Parkes since there's plenty of options but we'd never been there before to know which would be decent. We were very impressed with the quality of the room and the friendly staff. A big thanks to our Trip Advisor friends - it was a real treat after a tough day traveling. And great value too. We recommend it without hesitation and would definitely stay there again if we're out that way. Unfortunately we didn't have the opportunity to try the food.

Room Tip: The only reason we didn't select Excellent for the sleep quality was because we were located nex...
