A family run motel handy to town and other amenities,the place is seventies but well maintained ( except the exhaust fan in our bathroom and free wifi was only available in corner of room ) with all the room features that suits our travels. The price was most reasonable and being regular visitors to Armidale we will stay again.

We had a standard Aussie motel room from yesterday. Close to town, clean room, comfortable bed and pillows, friendly staff. WiFi was free and very fast. Frig and bathroom clean but tired, I prefer outside air flow in room to air-con if possible but I was concerned - perhaps needlessly - about the security of open no limiting catch windows.

Our motel is a simple and affordable motel. We don't hide this fact and our prices reflect our overall facilities. While we are constantly updating our motel we can only do so much based on the room rates we charge. We have so many happy guests stay here and they let us know comfortable their stay was and in most...

A run of the mill motel but excellent value at $113. Very friendly staff, neat, clean room and bathroom and only a 10 minute walk from center of town. A warning... do not be tempted to eat at the services men's club..

This motel is cheap & for the price is very decent. The motel is basic but the beds are very comfortable. The wifi access is excellent, the staff are friendly & it is located relatively close to the centre of town. The air con is quite loud but apart from that, I would absolutely recommend the White Lanterns motel.

This motel is average 3 star. It provides basic accommodation but surprisingly a very comfortable bed. Unfortunately sheets are old and thin and so are the towels. The room had a very noisy air con. The check in was friendly. The motel is close to restaurants / take away and RSL

WhiteLanterns, Owner at White Lanterns Motel, responded to this review

Thanks for your feedback. We strive to balance a price point that is under the larger motels and this does mean our resources are sometimes are stretched. But we don't mind because so many people travelling through don't want to waste a lot of money staying at more expensive motels and this is our market. Thanks very much, hope to...

Stayed for 1 night in a twin room . Good sized room but a bit dated . Can't complain as it was only $113 . Good for a 1 night stay on the way to Brisbane . Would only stay here again if I got the same room .

Thanks very much for your truthful review. Our family owned motel works very hard to maintain the property's standards and yet balance a cheap price for our travelers. We hope to see you again too!

I had a few choices to choose from and I am glad that this was my decision. Located in a quiet, primarily residential area it is not far from shops and places to catch a bite; be it for dinner, fast food or just a snack. It is also located within a 35k radius of attractions like the Oxley Rivers...

Fantastic, helpful gentleman at reception. Rooms very clean and comfortable. Easy parking. Pretty gardens and outdoor seating for each room. Will stay again next time I'm in the area and reccomend to friends and family.

Big thanks for your review, I was probably the person who was at reception (mostly because I am more cooler than the other guys! ha ha ha). Thanks very much for your kind review, we hope to see you again in the future.

Checking in to the motel we were greeted by a very friendly and welcoming receptionist who had lots of knowledge of the local area. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and a big plus was the complimentary wifi which works a treat.I would recommend the motel to others visiting Armidale.

We were looking for somewhere to stay in Armidale and after googling the net, I phoned ahead to check availability :-). When we arrived check in was friendly and quick and we found there is free WiFi. Our bed was quite comfortable and although the bathroom was dated it was clean and the water pressure was lovely. Close to town.
