What our guests are saying

Great option to stay when in Tamworth

The room was spacious and very clean and comfortable. The tv was extra large with all connected options available. Bed was very comfy and aircon worked well. Bathroom was also quite spacious. Location was easy 7 minute drive into centre. Reception staff member was very helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

“Highly recommend”
Easy to find, can see it from the New England Highway, has MOTEL written large on the roof if in doubt. My room was quiet, spacious, airy, spotless and everything looked new and worked. Excellent and friendly service. Plenty of space (grass) if visiting as a family for children to run about on.

Location nice and quiet not in town next to others … large rooms … huge TV .. always clean and the best beds.

David, au

Faultless. The rooms are bright, airy and spacious. So well maintained that it could have been constructed yesterday. The staff are most helpful and the room service is without peer. Make a point of eating here, do not bother to drive around looking for a restaurant. The menu is compact but everything is excellent. The big breakfast is a must…

Great overnight stay wit amazing onsite food

Hotel is amazing, rooms are clean, large and large tv if you have a child (it was near Xmas and we watched a Christmas movie) … restaurant is authentic Italian and we’ve been there twice and the food is exceptional. No overstatement. Breakfast to our room was also very good.


I would have liked to stay for more than one night! It was like staying in an apartment rather than a motel.


“Highly recommend”
Great quiet location. Excellent rooms. Bathrooms are fantastic with excellent water pressure. Clean and maintained to a high standard. Great bbq area. Extremely accommodating owners and staff. Will always stay here when in Tamworth
