I stayed as a single with my relatives booking rooms for a total of three over Friday and Saturday night while attending a family reunion.
One reason I chose Cousins was the slightly cheaper price comparing to other quality motels in Inverell. For that reason I was expecting a slightly lower standard of accommodation. I was wrong; there was no reduction in quality in size, bed or facilities. I have travelled quite a lot in Australia and around the world. Cousins would be one of the best value for money motels I have stayed in.
The thing that really made a difference was the attention to detail and the little extras that are not often available free in other places. All Aussie motels include instant coffee and tea and sometimes a couple of biscuits. But very few also provide a hot chocolate mix or a coffee plunger and real coffee to go in it. Add more towels than I could possibly use, shoe and car cleaning facilities outside the room and free and reasonably fast wifi and it is hard to find fault. Possibly a larger TV might be useful, but I didn't watch much TV anyway. The only real difficulty was limited car parking, with not quite as many spaces as there are rooms.
Overall, top value.
