On the highway on the north side of Tamworth. Can be noisy. Quite a big room with a couch and fridge plus kettle toaster etc. Ok for a night or two. Easy to find and has a restaurant as well as barbecue facilities.

I stayed in this motel overnight when I was on a business trip and I found that it was clean, comfortable and great value for money.The owners were very welcoming and friendly and most accommodating, particularly as I had to change my booking arrangements. Although the motel is an older one, the room I was in had been refurbished and... More

We had a good night sleep on a comfortable mattress. Clean room but a bit stale. Loved that we could open front and back doors and we could walk down to the river. Breakfasts included cereal, juices, toast and tea or coffee. I would recommend

I stayed here a couple of weeks ago. I stayed near the back and couldn't really hear the highway at all. A few people have mentioned free wifi but there was nothing written in the room about this and no one told me. Didn't know about the Foxtel either and there was nothing in the room indicating this. Apart from... More

Reading some of the reviews I think there may be some rooms that have been refurbished and others not. We got a "not refurbished room". But we paid the same. The room was at the rear of the complex, so was quiet and the beds comfortable. Staff are friendly also. However, there were a few major issues - fridge froze... More

The room was comfortable and warm and clean. But the free breakfast was the best! Rice bubbles toast and juice in a dining room with loads of guitars. Will definitely a stay here again when in Tamworth.

we were very disappointed with this motel, not very clean, decor outdated. I would recommend this Motel for workers travelling and needing a place to rest but for families travelling for a holiday it really doesn't do it. There is free Wifi but not worth using as it's so slow. Not sure what era the air con was from but... More

The room decor was dated, but clean and comfortable. Room to move. Unit was at front of complex, table and chairs available at front of unit. Some road noise at night. Did not affect sleep. Restaurant onsite - need to book. Easy drive into Tamworth

Hotel is well past its used-by date. Stairs leading to the rooms had dead cockroaches on it. A huntsman spider was in the room. The banging of the pipes when the next room had a shower was noticeable. The electrical cable to the blow dryer was wired to under the power point directly ILLEGALLY!!!!!!

Sorry for your experience. We are on 3 acres and any dead bugs show our pest control is working, not happy that stairs were not swept. Cannot doing anything about a spider in room. Not sure of your expertise in the electrical area BUT hairdryers were installed by qualified electrician in same manner as I have observed in many motels... More
