Stayed for one night to break up the long road trip from Sydney to Brisbane. There a quite a lot of motels in Taree, and we chose this one for its good reviews and apparent proximity to the highway. For the price paid, we found it to be adequate for our needs.
The owners and staff were extremely helpful and polite at check-in, and in fact at all times. We decided to eat at the little restaurant since we were too tired to go out, and since it was very quiet, the staff offered to bring our dinner up to our room. We enloyed a very nice steak dinner, complete with a bottle of red whilst sitting in our little room overlooking the river.
The room itself was quite spacious, typical of a roadside motel - not luxury by any means but comfortable. The bathroom was spotless, the bed was comfy, with soft sheets( always a winner for me) and flat screen tv added a modern touch. The only negative thing about the room was that the little couch was very grubby and in fact smelled rather bad - but nothing that a good steam clean wouldn't fix. Everything is just a bit mismatched, but that just adds to the charm!
The continental breakfast was fine - just what you would have at home - coffee, cereal, fruit, toast etc all as a help yourself buffet. Again not luxurious, but at $89 a night breakfast is an absolute bonus.
In summary, if you want luxury - go elsewhere, but if you just need a place to crash for the night and have realistic expectations as to what a country roadside motel is all about then this one will do quite nicely.
