“Terrific Staff”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

It has been a few years since I stayed here & the motel has been given a bit of a spruce up.
The room, though of an older style , had a separate lounge room with another TV. It was very clean with a lovely view across the river.Considering the motel is next to the bridge noise was minimal.( Probably helps that Taree has been bypassed by the highway ) The meals were good
( but I did miss the Brazilian BBQ that they used to have ).
It is a short walk to Taree or down to the river.

Room Tip: Try rooms on the northern side facing the river with the bridge behind you.

Motel rooms are always tidy, clean, and comfortable. The motel grounds are always kept in a tidy and clean manner. Easy car parking. Beautiful views of the manning river. Reception staff are exceptional. Overall all staff are very accommodating, easy to get along with, and will do anything for you with a smile! Always a pleasure staying at the Best Western Taree Motor Inn

Now yes the rooms are not amazing, but, they are clean comfortable and some have great views looking over the river. There is some modern touches that other country motels don't have, such as iPhone compatible alarm clocks. Basically the rooms are well set out for what they have to work with structurally.
The restaurant Rio, has really great food and the passion for food from the chef really is on display. Madison the waiter always has a great smile and attentive.
So no, the BW Taree is not a Sofitel but a nice country motel

I stayed here on the recommendation of my old mother as I was seeing family in the area. Clearly my mother is sliding into senility. What can I say: poky little room looking out over an alley; a noisy air-conditioner unit like in the former Soviet Union circa 1957, and priced well over what I think is reasonable for such a property.
The truth is that the property needs major renovation. I can only assume the owners can't afford to do what is necessary. It will slowly slide into slum status without the required refitting.
However, to be fair, I have no idea what the other rooms were like.

I stayed in this motel two nights a week for the past few weeks, while working in Taree. I was looked after by Kris, most of my stays, as the owners were away. What a delight, nothing was too much trouble and on arrival I always felt like I was visiting friends. Room service meals were lovely. This is not a big city hotel but a country motel, personal and relaxed. Thanks for your hospitality.

Have stayed in 7 diff hotels over the last 7 nights and this is the worst and the most expensive! I had been staying in 4 star plus motels but had no option other than to pick this motel as others were booked out and this was more expensive than the 4 and 5 star places I had been staying in! I had a "river view" room yeah great only it's right next to the bloody highway with trucks and cars going all night! The rooms are dated and def need a freshen up. Won't stay here again. In fact won't stay in taree again! The only good thing about it is the Indian restaurant!

Stayed on one of the upstairs river view rooms. While the exterior is dated, the room was quite tidy and clean. Outside deck was nice to catch the sea breeze on what was a warm evening. Lucky I'm a sound sleeper as there was lots of traffic noise.
