Reviewed March 19, 2012

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.

We stayed for 2 nights and when we go back to Inverell we will definitely stay there again. Grant and Kathleen were so helpful making sure we didn't need any extra items. Very friendly, hospitable people. The room was good and comfortable, they even had car window cleaning bucket and squeegie outside the rooms.

We stayed for a couple of nights at Cousins Motor Inn last week and we could not be recommend it highly enough. The people were amazing, they went above and beyond what they needed to do, which made it a pleasure to stay at. The rooms were very comfortable, clean and there was shoe shining equipment between the rooms, which was a lovely little extra. If you ever need to stay in Inverell or nearby this is the place to stop be it for one night or weeks.

I stayed at Cousins Motor Inn in mid July and found the experience to be very enjoyable. Grant and Kathleen were wonderful hosts and I would recommend Cousins Motor Inn to anyone who visits the people friendly town of Inverell.

I visited Inverell for three weeks this month and could not be more happy with my choice of accomodation while in town. The rooms were very well-appointed with quality furnishings and although on the main road into town, the rooms were surprisingly quiet!

Very comfortable bed and reverse-cycle air conditioning made the room very pleasant despite the frosty Inverell weather outside.

The lovely bathrobes and fluffy towels were a nice touch as was the option of breakfast and dinner served to the room.

What can I say - Kathleen and Grant are the most warm and welcoming people I've ever met in the hotel/motel industry, instantly from the time I arrived to the time that I checked-out, the two people and their family made me feel as if I was staying in their own home. I was greeted by the family dog whenever I drove in to the place as well!

Fantastic BBQ area next to the poo/spa was great for winding down of an afternoon.

The motel is positioned right on the river and close to town = perfect location!

I'll miss staying at Cousin's motor inn Inverell and recommend it to anyone staying in Inverell.

I stayed at this establishment for three weeks while fossicking the district for sapphires. My stay was interupted for two nights because of some conference in town and most of the lodgings were booked out. I filled in the missing days at the Twin Swan Motel on the outskirts of town which although was satisfactory I perfer to be near walking distance to town for eats and pubs. Cousins are just nexts to a caravan park and across from that is the bowling club, meals tuesdays and saturdays. Rooms here are old in their furnishings. Box televisions and NO cooking facilities ( no micro either ) just a kettle and toaster and fridge with mini bar stock for the thirsty. Electric blankets and aircon for heat. This motel is tidy and clean, warm even without the aircon which is a BIG plus here for this time of year with car windows iced up in the morning. Bucket and squeege supplied to clean the bugs off that dirty windscreen. Nice. No laundry. Meals for the rooms are offered but no restaurant. Parking can be an issue as often workers visiting the district share a room and each worker has a ute. This leaves very little parking. Only the street is left, which is not good. The Management are wonderful and will go the extra, also giving information on where to eat/pub meals and the 'no dont go there's' ect.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the east side

The hosts were extremely helpful with information on Inverell and travel routes away from town. The room was clean and tidy and well appointed. The rates represent good value for money. The free wireless internet was a bonus and other accommodation should follow this lead.
