Station Motel Parkes

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 March 2012

Overpriced, small servings - and don't ask for anything gluten free or you will get an unappetising dry sauceless dish smaller than the ordinary portion but still at full price. Totally ruined a celebration. No atmosphere whatsoever.

Stayed: March 2012, travelled as a couple

Nothing to complain about at all at this motel. I picked this motel based on other Trip Advisor comments and it met my expectations perfectly.

Friendly staff and rooms that were very clean and appear to have been recently rennovated. A pleasant stay.

Some other Trip Advisor review mention noise from trucks on the major road so we asked for a room at the back of the motel. They staff happily assisted and we had no problems at all with truck noise in our room.

The motel is a little out of the center of town, but it seems this is the designated place for motels... there are about 5 in a row on this main road out of town.

We stayed in the September holidays last year and yet again forgot to put up a review! Doh!! Anyway the Station Hotel is a great establishment. We travelled with our two boys (7 and 5) and so had interconnecting rooms. We were very impressed with the standard of the rooms and the boys loved being in their own room!! Brekky was good and service was always with a smile. Having to travel that way again this April we know we will be booking again!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back of the motel as we didnt have any problem with road noise!!

Stayed at the Station Hotel for one night on road trip from Adelaide to Brisbane. We were pleasently suprised by the hotel based on the price it was clean and modern with all you needed for a good rest. I liked the use of corregated panels in the rooms, very space age. The hosts were very friendly and informative of the area. We had dinner and breakfast and both were good value. Some reviews have mentioned noise but we heard nothing and had a good sleep . The hotel is a good walk from the centre about 10 min. The hotel is perfect if staying in Parkes.

The 'dish' was excellent we visited twice and been saddo's we even wathched he movie before visiting again.

We stayed in the family room which was very nice and clean but if you have young children I do not recommend because of the road noise the big trucks frightened my boys, I also discovered at 9pm that I did not have a towel (not happy) they only put 3 towels but reception closed at 7pm.
also the restaurant does not open on weekends and they advertise breakfast in restaurant 7 days a week guess what not open when we went for breakfast so we drove to Forbes for breakfast instead.

This place was a surprising treat on our long trip back from Ballina to Victoria. The design is funky and very modern, with stone and corrugated iron giving it a very Australian country feel. It is a clean and simple design. The rooms are roomy and comfortable, with a king size bed which was very comfortable indeed. Plenty of fresh white linen. It is more like a nice hotel than the normal boring type of motel you get everywhere. We dined in the dining room and had a very nice dinner for a reasonable price. They're not on to special needs like lactose intolerance but they tried very hard to get around the problem. Breakfast was $10 for either a continental or cooked breakfast. We had the continental and it was adequate but not all that inspired but it was pleasant enough. We had requested a room at the back (and downstairs) so noise was not a problem for us. Managers were terrific as were the helpful and friendly staff. Really liked this motel and will stay here again.
