    « Watch The Pricing »

    This motel wanted to charge quite a bit more than more than the online prices so you need to watch that if booking direct. However it was lovely - incredibly comfortable bed, well equipped kitchenette, comfortable chairs and sofa and a great spa. Only drawback was they did not provide any bubbles and we had to use shampoo!

    « Don't bother with the restaurant »

    The room was OK - standard Aussie motel decor, bed hard but that's usual. The person on reception told us we should book for dinner to avoid missing out, and we were so tired we did. Of course, we were the only people in the restaurant, and when the bland food arrived we understood why. With the execrable Barnaby Joyce's office across the road, Tenterfield is not the place to ask for vegan food. But we asked. Don't bother - go Thai or Chinese.

    « Lovely place. »

    We are currently staying here in a king spa room. The room is lovely, spacious and has everything you could possibly want. The king bed is very comfortable, in fact the most comfortable we have had in about 2 weeks of travelling. The room is very clean, light and comfortable. We also ate dinner in the restaurant tonight and the meal was fantastic and the service was great. The motel staff are very friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The wifi actually works unlike other places we have stayed. We would recommend staying here and would certainly come back here again.

    « Great place to stay »

    We stayed here in October 2015 and weren't disappointed. Their restaurant was closed which was a little disappointing as we'd heard it was quite good; but tenterfield has plenty of good eateries. But, this motel was clean and comfortable. I'd stay here again.

    Beds were very comfy, large clean rooms. Within walking distance to the Main Street for restaurants etc. We walked down the the Commercial Hotel for dinner, but after having breakfast in the Motel restaurant in the morning, wished we had had dinner there. The food was amazing! Highly recommend

    « Amazing country motel »

    I arrived on a cold winter night. The room was very spacious, clean and modern which is deceiving from the outside. The room service menu is extensive and the food was delicious. Staff were very friendly. Will definitely stay here on my next trip.

    Very nice and warm staff, the rooms were very nice and the bed were very comfy, loved the bath room as it had a spa and it was lovely, it was very handy to have a washing machine as we are traveling . Room service was good a bit prices but was still good and nice to eat. Not a lot to choice on the menu but it was still nice, recommend to stay here very nice

    « Poor Food »

    This place was only one of about 4 restaurants to choose from in town. Decided to go there as it was the cleanest. The staff were warm and welcoming. The atmosphere rather lovely. The food on the other hand was overcooked, bland and the pork tasted like it had freezer burn. I admit I am a food snob, but I am sure this place could do a whole lot better.

    « Very quiet and comfortable »

    I have stayed here before and always find it relaxing. I generally have one of the rooms at the back , it is so quiet . Staff friendly . Had room service , meals arrived quickly and were delicious and hot. Bed extremely comfortable . Recommend to any one requiring good nights sleep in quiet surroundings.

    « Clean and comfortable but very ordinary accommodation... »

    We have been travelling in New South Wales the past 14 days and have enjoyed some wonderful accommodation. Understanding Tenterfield is a small NSW town and not necessarily a tourist mecca, we booked the best we could find online. The room is clean and tidy but with very dated décor, kitchen fitout and lounge furniture that might be found at Vinnies. Two cane chairs and a low bench seat does not invite me to sit for very long. The kitchen and bench is of average fitout and quality. There is absolutely no comparison between this unit and one at an upmarket Meriton serviced apartment tower in Broadbeach for the same cost of $175. The bathroom is clean and quite spacious with a shower of a large spa bath making it difficult to 'climb in'! A small laundry offers opportunity to do washing while travelling. The reception at front desk was warm and friendly and our arrival was handled very efficiently. The dining room, lounge and open fire was pleasant and inviting. However we opted to phone for a takeaway as it was late and a cold wet night.

    « Great place to stay while travelling through »

    We needed a night's stay while travelling north to Brisbane and chose this place and were not disappointed. Great sized rooms and friendly service. The restaurant had great meals at dinner and we enjoyed the local wines. Breakfast is a light, continental only but part of the nightly rate. Good value for money.

    « Clean, friendly and central location »

    Visitied whislt on a work trip in the area. We were all working nights and sleeping during the day. The housekeeping staff were very helpful in not disturbing us during the day but allocating the time once we had left for work to still ensure our rooms were serviced. Very clean and cosy. Would stay here again.

    Very impressed with our stay here. New owners were most welcoming, friendly and accomodating. Our meal in the restaurant was excellent, and the service from the young lady serving was professional and courteous. Highly recommended

    « Great Overnight Stay »

    We had been travelling for a week and were on our way home. This was our final stopover and decided to shout ourselves with a King Room with Spa bath certainly was worth the extra. Bath water was hot and was wonderful after a long day travelling and the mattress on the Bed was amazing as were the pillows. Had a lovely meal in the restaurant as was breakfast the next morning. Room was away from the main round so minimal traffic noise, could have easily stayed another night if we had the time - will certainly stay there again. Staff were friendly and helpful and very keen for any feedback - only feedback we had was a blanket would have been nice as the doona was too warm for that time of the year, however the blanket had been missed being put back in the room after being laundered, only a small detail which can happen, congratulations to the cleaners the room was spotless.

    After a long days drive my husband and I had a very nice and comfortable stay at the Henry Parkes . The management were very friendly and our meal at the restaurant couldn't be faulted and was reasonably priced. Our room was lovely and clean and very roomy and quiet.we would definitely stay at this motel again.thank you

    « Very Poor Dining Experience »

    The room was well presented, clean and tidy and the public areas comfortable and inviting however the meal was a disaster. I ordered fillet steak and my colleague salmon. The salmon dish arrived looking nothing like the menu description, when pointed out the waitress just shrugged, we suspect she'd seen this before. Worse was to follow, the fish was raw inside and inedible. My steak I certain wasn't fillet and looked more like rib eye, whatever the case it was a cheap tasteless cut of meat, my collogue and I had to share this meal as we were starving by this point. The biggest issue here was the managers reaction to the fish being presented raw, She insisted people (including herself) liked it that way REALLY this can at the very least make you very ill and worst kill you. Instead of dealing with the issue in a professional manner was so worked up she was shaking. In the end she offered no apology and made the "offer" of knocking off the inedible meal sound like a favour. Lastly the "high speed internet advertised on the sign most certainly isnt

    Lovely town and very happy with value for money, our clean and quiet room was spotless and we'll maintained with a very comfy bed and the owner could not have been more welcoming. Restaurant looks inviting too. Excellent customer service ??????

    « Fantastic place to stay »

    We stayed here for a night over Easter and were really happy with our choice. The staff were lovely and so helpful. Room was nice and quiet and spacious. The spa was great after a long day of travelling. We had dinner in the restaurant and it was superb! The steak was cooked to perfection and everything we ordered was delicious. Highly recommended and will definitely stay and eat here again.

    « Another comfortable and pleasant stay, with a great meal »

    Recently stayed here again while traveling for work. Once again I couldn't fault the service, presentation and cleanliness of the room, or the great value meals from their restaurant. On arrival you are made to feel very welcome. The rooms are nicely presented, and a couple of small concerns from my last trip seem to have been addressed - more effort put into the presentation of the rooms. They have. A great restaurant on sire that offers beautiful meals of good quality and value for money. The oysters were some of the biggest I have ever had - not bad from someone who comes from the coast where oysters are plentiful. I would highly recommend staying here, and definitively eating at the restaurant. After a long day of driving there is no need to go any further. I will be back again.

    « Good Motel, pity about their restaurant meals »

    We had a good apartment number 255 at the back of the motel. Very little highway noise. The complimentary wi fi was disappointing as it had no capacity or bandwidth ? The restaurant was beautifully done, very nice setup. The wine list was adequate. The menu selection was OK BUT, my fillet steak was dreadful & I could not eat it even though I tried my best and my wife's vegetarian lasagne selection was also horrible. (We didn't complaint as it was a special occasion for us) So, stay at the motel, have a drink in the restaurant but avoid the restaurant meals and eat elsewhere.

    « Tired but comfortable »

    Spotted motel from Information Centre. Looked good and central. Room parking a bit convoluted, but once in was okay. Good position for walking Tenterfield. Nothing flash, but bed comfortable. Good touch of having a back door for air flow.

    « A GREAT DISCOVERY »

    We planned a journey away from the holiday rush of the North Coast beaches and travelled south from Brisbane via Warwick and Armidale. We were glad that we booked ahead for our stay in Tenterfield. This is a well appointed, country New South Wales motel with the advantage of roadside location without the highway noise. Rooms are clean and well maintained. The big surprise is an excellent menu and quality cooking of Australian and Sri Lanka dishes - the latter as mild or as hot as you choose!

    Stayed overnight at this motel on a recent trip to Inverell. Had stayed there some years ago when it was excellent value but this time was even better as it has been recently renovated and completely refreshed. We had a double room at the back of the motel, and although it is on the main highway, road noise was minimal as the room had a very efficient air conditioner. The unit was clean and spacious with a large comfortable bed and a generous sized bathroom. The owners were very friendly and helpful and there is an excellent restaurant on site (Henry's On Rouse), where we had a very enjoyable dinner. The oysters were amazing. Great value and a very relaxing stopover.

    « Christmas Lunch »

    My husband and I had a buffet Xmas lunch here, 2015. From my initial enquiry back in August, the manager Sabrina kept in touch, replying promptly to any enquiry I made regarding the menu, payment, time etc. There were only about 35-40 people and no screaming babies or young children running around. The service was exemplary. The selection of food was not overwhelming but more than adequate and delicious.All the xmas trimmings. Congratulations and thank you to the management and staff for a truly wonderful lunch where the diners were the centre of attention.

    We had an overnight stay at this hotel just a few days ago with a coach tour group. It was a very nice comfortable hotel with a welcoming atmosphere. The dinner that night was just superb, and the breakfast the next morning was the same. The people running this motel were very friendly, and they had a little girl about 5 yrs. old. She came around with a basket on the morning we were departing in the coach to collect all the room keys from each and every one of us. Our hostess on the coach invited her on board to say "goodbye" to us which she did with much confidence.

    Our group held there annual Confrence over the weekend, the staff at the Henry Parks Tenterfield are simply amazing, it was so good to have a real country welcome, nothing was a problem for them. The only problem was that the Confrence hall was not air conditioned, if that was done then the hall would be much more useable. Even though it was very hot over the weaken we still managed to get through all our business. Then at the end the hotel staff decided to move us into the hotel dinning room as this is ar conditioned. That is one thing they did not have to do. Once agian above board service. Well done to the staff and owners of the Henry Parks Hotel. Also the rooms whil a little dated they where also very clean and comfortable.

    « Short break with 2 close friends »

    We did not have much choice, when booking at Tenterfield. We did not want to stay in a B&B. It was a long weekend, so busy. On arriving we were greeted with very pleasant and helpful staff, one being the Manager. Because of health issues with two of our companions, we asked if we could have a look at our rooms. Not a problem. The Motel it is somewhat out dated, and could do with an update. If you don't mind that, the beds were very clean, and comfortable. Plenty of spare blankets. No electric blankets, that's a shame as it gets very cold there. We had a family room, which was very big, kitchenette, but we did not use that. A bed in the lounge, with dining table, sofa etc. Other room, had 3 beds in it, and a bathroom. Cleaning of rooms, could be better, but not too off putting. There is a restaurant attached, which we used at night and morning. Food was very nice, but always cold. Which we did complain about nicely, it was noted by the Manager, but it still did not improve. We would stay there again, and it is very interesting place, may be try Stanthorpe next time, bigger town. Our friends had the spa room, bit more expensive. They said it was alright, did not rave. If you had to stay there you would be comfortable, 3 rating. Very close to the shops, in the main street, just a walk away. Quite flat so good for wheel chairs, etc. The grounds need a good sprucing up, would help a lot with the over all first impression.

    « A comfortable stay. »

    This motel offers a comfortable stay, and a good nights sleep. While the motel is a little older, the rooms in the main are nicely presented, fresh, and a good size. The beds are comfortable. I found the air conditioning a little noisy, so not possible to leave it running during the cold winter nights. The exhaunt fan in the bathroom was very noisy (too noisy to use), and was missing its cover - in need of replacement. The hot water in the shower was poor - very low pressure, and the temperature kept on fluctuating. Not the best when trying to shower during a. Dry cold winter morning. The meals from the restaurant are good. They offer a good selection. The meals are a good size, and offer good value for money. I have stayed here a few times, and will stay again. As a Best Western motel, I think it is a little low in its standards, compared to most others. While it has a few small faults, I would recommend this motel as a place to stay while in Tenterfield.

    Large room with comfortable bed. Great location near shopping. Ate at restaurant which was very nice. We always stay here when passing thru town. Although the gardens and outer areas are in need of some tlc. Overall look of a motel is still fairly important to most people so please note this guys.

    Stayed here on a stopover on way back from Hunter Valley to Brisbane with two young kids. Were in a family room that was very comfortable. Made to feel welcome by owners/managers and price was reasonable. We had breakfast in the restaurant on site and the kids were discounted as only had some juice, cereal and fruit...a lot cheaper than a McDonalds brekkie! Would highly recommend as a stopover motel.

    We stayed here for one night as a stop over and the room was very spacious, clean and cosy. Aircon was quiet and beds were comfy and a nice bathroom. Despite location on the main rd the room was very quite with rd noise kept minimal. Would definitely recommend!
