“Clean Comfy Costly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

Staying here you will find a clean & comfy country motel. Room had all you would expect including fluffy bathrobes - a nice touch. Car parking is at front of room but it is tricky to manouver even in a normal sized sedan. Although we didn't do it, reception said that wild platypus could be seen along riverbank on stroll into town. All in all a good little motel but felt that at $115 per night it was top end price to pay for a country establishment.

I and my husband have just completed a few weeks away travelling around the Tamworth Armidale area and I have to say our stay at the Cousins Motor Inn, was by far the outstanding experience. From the efficiency in booking our accommodation, the welcoming and friendly hosts on our arrival and the attention to detail and, our many requests regarding the area in general - i have to say it was simply a delightful and a very comfortable experience. I would certainly recomend this Motel and its hosts Kathleen and Grant to all our friends and family, indeed anyone seeking accomm in Inverell. thanks guys.

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.
