Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 3, 2014

Clean, modern furnished rooms with engaging staff to boot!
Overnight stay on journey from The Tweed to Melbourne and what a welcome motel for respite from the black top. Comfortable bed, hot shower, convenient location. While on the highway and allocated front room on 2nd floor, minimal traffic noise apparent when in room. Would stay again.

As a rep I stay in motels all over NSW and QLD and the Station Motel is one of my favourites. Danny and his team provide a consistent standard of excellence in both accommodation and meals and always find ways to go above and beyond to ensure that their guests feel at home.
There are little touches everywhere designed to make your stay just that little bit better than anywhere else and when I am working in the area I will travel up to an extra 100km per day rather than stay in another town! The chef is fantastic and the meals are certainly restaurant quality! The beds are super comfortable and the rooms are both super clean and well designed to ensure a great night's sleep and a very comfortable stay.
I've never bothered to write a review but feel that The Station Motel deserves some recognition for the standards that they set!
Thanks guys

This is one of the best motels we have stayed in and we stay in an awful lot. We travel with work and come across a great variety of motels. This one never lets us down. The rooms are spacious, comfortable beds and great walk-in showers. The restaurant is top class and the staff are very pleasant.

Room Tip: We always ask for a ground floor unit.

Thank you for taking the time to give us a superb score and great feedback, I am going to have to build more ground floor rooms aren't I? It is always great to have you stay with us as well. It is nice to see the positive remark about the restaurant also, it has been one of the huge changes that has been made and Paul the chef has made such a big difference and the new menu comes out on the 24th of the month, so you will have to come back to try it. Thanks again

Love this place, they make you feel much welcomed and special. People are so friendly and rooms perfect! Food is great, both taste and look, lamb is my favorite. I have stayed there few times in the past few months and I will be back for sure!

This is the best motel we have ever stayed at! Despite travelling a alot I have never written a tripadvisor review but just had to for this stay! We had the interconnecting family room which was fantastic. King bed in the main room which was just huge and the 3 kids were in the joining room with a king bed and a single. The rooms are the standard of a 4/5 star hotel and were spotless. We had a hearty breakfast in the lovely restaurant in the morning which kept us going for most of the day.
If staying in the Parkes/Forbes area a stay at the Station Motel is a must!

I am glad to read that your first review on TripAdvisor was for the Station Motel, we are very grateful. We are also glad you enjoyed your breaky and the family room. It is really important that we now know that the family room works for families as we have not had much feedback on that. I really look forward to your next stay and thank you for your great comments.

My family and I are on a 2 week road trip with a 2 night stop at Station Motel. We have nothing but praise for the management and staff. Our room (119) had a king size bed and a king single for our son. The room is modern, very clean and well spaced for family and luggage. The modern bathroom and large shower area was appreciated. The new tv included a dvd player, with complementry dvds at reception. We enjoyed watching "The Dish" with our son before heading there the next day.

It was the little things that made a reat difference. The complementry guest laundry (no coins required) has 2 new washing machines and 2 new dryers, as well as complementry washing powder available. The bucket and squeegee for the car windscreen was another thoughtful touch. The staff were all great. There was a real happy vibe about the place,

The only tip I can give is that you can easily drive past it if you're not looking. When coming from Dubbo, its the first motel on the left as you enter Parkes. The sign is a little tricky to notice.

We ate at the restaurant both nights. The main meals range about $25 - $30 mark with a healthy option on most meals. We had tried the beef, lamb and pork dishes and were more than happy with quality and size of the meals. The childrens menu also had very generous servings for $10.

This has been the best stop of our trip yet and I would not hesitate returning here on our next trip.

You have spent a lot of time and effort on this response and i cant thank you enough. You have covered all the things that we always hope helps out the guests and the review of the restaurant is equally as important. The main sign is the last thing on our to-do list to have the motel up to our standard. I am also going to follow you reviews as i am interested in the next stage of your journey and how it all went. Thank you

We drove from Melb-Parkes yesterday & chose to stay here from the internet reveiws. It was new,very clean and very,very good value for $. There were 6 of us and we had 2 adjoining rooms, consisting of a king bed & a single bed in each, perfect for us. The people were very nice and we loved the extras like the car window washing facilities. We would definately stay here again and would recommend it over all the old, crappy looking hotels in Parkes!
