The accommodation was pleasant and clean, the bed was very comfortable. It was described as a queen size, but felt suspiciously cozy with two of us in it. As is was raining, being able to park right outside our room with part of the car under the awning was most convenient. Complimentary windscreen wash on our car in the morning.

Hi Joanna, Thank you for the review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. All of our beds are either Queen beds or King beds other than the twin share rooms which have a Queen and Single bed in them. We would usually endeavor to put couples into a room with the Queen configuration with a Lounge rather...

Arrived unannounced at dusk in the pouring rain to a warm welcome from Keith at reception. My room was very clean and comfortable with plenty of room to move around. Sought advice as to where I could get something to eat given it was a Monday and after 8pm. Got the last pizza cooked in town that night at Tenterfield...

An excellent value motel with clean rooms, friendly staff and a very comfortable bed. A little noise from passing trucks but I think this would have been hard to avoid anywhere in Tenterfield. The owner suggested we go to the tavern for an evening meal and we were not disappointed. A great friendly place to stop with their service levels...

Thank you for the kind review. We appreciate the time it takes to write a review of our motel and of Tenterfield. You are correct about some truck noise in any of the motels, and our double glazing does reduce any road noise when the windows are closed. We look forward to seeing you next time you visit Tenterfield. Kindest...

We could not have had a friendlier welcome or more assistance with everything we needed. The room was very clean and had everything we needed and more. Impressed to see the Rotary 4 way test on the wall in reception. A terrific couple of days with the Bavarian Beer Fest and the beautiful shops and views! A five minute walk...

Lee & Keith were perfect hosts. We were a large group and found them easy to deal with over the few months it took to get our booking just right. The rooms were clean and comfortable and having our windscreens cleaned each morning was an unexpected bonus. Looking forward to returning at a later date

Room was great and very clean. The pool was very refreshing. The staff could not do enough for you. Made us feel at home and the owner cleaned our windscreen which was a nice surprise to wake up to. Highly recommended

We had a very comfortable nights stay here when travelling north from Central Coast, NSW. A good things was that the Reception was open until 10pm which was a relief as we arrived after 7pm and called ahead to check. A good sized room and king bed which you don't get very often. Nice pool and very friendly team. We...

In extremely hot weather the pool in this motel was very welcome after the short walk to the shops to get some bits and pieces. I really like the refurbished room with the recliner lounge, such unexpected luxury in a country motel. Nice comfortable bed and nice strong shower after cooling off in the pool. Heat wave or not, I'll...
