“Staff couldn't be more helpful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

My family and I (five people in total) stayed for one night on travel between Port Macquarie and Dubbo.

The stand-out for the motel was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The woman on reception was super-helpful and went out of her way to assist with information on dinner options for the evening and other local information to make our stay enjoyable. It was really impressive and a lovely way to start the stay.

We used the self-contained apartment at the rear of the hotel, which was quiet and comfortable. Just enough room for a family of five in a room that was clean, appeared to have recently been renovated, and had all that we needed. The motel also has a nice pool. Access to everything in Tamworth seems to be good.

We could not have asked for more - comfortable, reasonably priced, and with great service.

Room Tip: For a family, the self-contained apartment at the rear of the hotel is great.

Stayed one night on the way back to Sydney. Room was spotless, and very modern. Bed was really comfy, but the pillows were a bit hard. Really lovely management. Would recommend this little motel to anybody. I will definately stay here again.

We stayed there one night only on our way back to Sydney. Rooms were very clean and modern. Free austar and you also get 4 hours of free internet. Very friendly and helpful hosts. The only problem was us was a bed that wasnt very comfy. But maybe its just us as i havent red anyone complaining about beds.
Overall great place to stay!

Very friendly people who couldnt help us enough with directions etc. We loved our room, it was clean, modern and nice large bathroom! Very comfy bed and super quiet aircon as it was freezing. Will always remember to stay here in the future and price was very reasonable.

You only ever really want a few things guaranteed with an overnight stay in a motel. The Motel Grande has staff that are genuinely friendly and take time to chat, very accommodating with parking a trailer, and the room and everything in it was superb. Away from traffic noise on a highway is a hard thing but achieve here too. Thank you.

Room Tip: Room 10 is furthest from the road and noise.

Refurbished and very clean. Very accommodating and friendly owners. Would recommend to those who are not after huge rooms, but place cleanliness high on their agenda.

Room Tip: Had trouble with Wifi in rooms 4, 5 and 6.
