    « Great stay - thank you!! »

    I want to thank Gail and Graham for such a great stay. They are so genuinely warm and friendly; something that you don't get everywhere. The first thing I noticed was how emaculately clean everything was,everything neat as a pin and everthing I needed and lots more. I had a really sore back on the night of our stay, so I really appreciated the super comfy bed and the electric blanket, not forgetting to mention the awesome shower! Fantastic wholesome country breakfast. I'm not sure when we'll be back in this area, but when we are I look forward to staying at the Best Western Motel Farrington.

    « Thank you Graham and Gail »

    Our stay at the Best Western Farmington Motel was unplanned . My wife and master 5 and master 18 months , were unfortunate enough that we broke down and were in desperate need of accommodation. Graham did some juggling and gave us a room , the room was basic but was clean and had everything you would need . In light of our circumstances even extended our check out time . we will be back for sure , but next time it will be planned Thank you Graham and Gail 5+ star for service

    We stayed 2 nights and found our room to be warm and inviting. We had extra blankets and electric on the beds. Bathroom was clean and functional. We had 2 bedrooms with 3 t.v's in total. All with foxtel. Staff were all friendly and helpful.

    « Basic, but fine for a one night stopover »

    Booked this at the last minute while travelling back to Sydney from Melbourne. Due to recent flooding most hotels were fully booked. Our motel room was old and tired looking, and pretty basic. Bunk beds were showing their age, as the mattresses sagged down when you lay on them. $3 500ml bottles of water in room - no thanks! Coles just around the corner. Bathroom was small but functional. Shower had good water pressure and warmed up quickly enough. WiFi was free and was quite fast too, which was impressive. I was able to stream HD video on YouTube without any issues which is something not a lot of hotel/motel networks would be capable of - so full marks for the wifi! The lady at reception, Gail, was friendly but a bit disorganised, as it took her a while to locate our booking - apparently the Best Western systems don't update the systems or print out new bookings as they should be doing. We paid $130 for a 3 bed room, at a room only rate (double bed plus bunk bed) - not great value for money really, but okay for the one night. Breakfast was chargeable at $12 for continental or $18 for cooked which we passed on. Advertised swimming pool was unfortunately "closed for winter" despite it being spring. Wouldn't have minded a morning swim as the weather was getting warmer in the morning! Basic, but fine for one night. At $130, it doesn't offer good value for money though.

    « If I inpected before booking & paying I wouldn't have stayed there »

    I rarely rate things so low and judging by the positive reviews I am thinking the room we got is not the normal room standard. I have only read one other review the resounds my sentiments but apart from that everyone else seems happy so maybe check the room before you pay. This was a ground floor room near the laundry/reception. The room we stayed in was old and tired, no updates in many years. There was nowhere to sit, not even a table. No really a place to leave toiletries or other items in the smallest bathroom imaginable. Shower curtains are nasty. Although it was clean (for its age and condition - there was mould in the bathroom grout but it was probably grouted 30 years ago), it was dusty and had that over the top carpet cleaner smell, my asthma kicked in straight away and my son came out in a rash. I was a sales rep for many years and know budget hotels well, but this was bad compared to any of them, especially for the price we paid which I though was above the standard rates for a budget motel. Our stay here was an overnighter, basically looking for somewhere halfway from Syd-Melbourne which we do regularly, but used to drive the whole way (before the baby arrived). I will not stay again and will continue the search for somewhere near the halfway mark that is cheap but comfortable.

    « Great country hotel »

    1st time staying at this great family run hotel and was surprised with the quality of accomadation. The rooms were a great size with the bathroom being freshly renovated with a extra large shower which is a pleasant surprise for a country hotel. Throw in great hosts and a fantastic hot breakfast and this place is perfect for a business stopover. Will defiantly make this my preferred hotel in Tumut.

    « Friendly Motel in a lovely country town. »

    I was here for work, so this place was well located and suited my purpose. Friendly staff (Gail) made me feel welcome. Clean, tidy, comfortable room. I'd stay here again and like to explore the beautiful surroundings. Not flashy, but definitely homely. This Motel has everything you'd expect for a few nights away.

    « Friendly and accommodating - the proprietors were fantastic »

    My husband and I stayed here for four nights, after our previous accommodation fell through due to accessibility issues (my husband uses a wheelchair). They were able to fit us in straight away, and they gave us a lovely self-contained, accessible two bedroom unit for the price of a motel room. The motel is run by Gail and Graham, two of the friendliest people we have ever met. Nothing was too much trouble. They also have twenty four hour check - in, and lovely buffet breakfasts every morning. We recommend this place very highly.

    « Clean and quiet motel »

    A clean and quiet motel, nothing flash but close to Main Street. Comfortable bed and nice light bathroom. Simple but adequate breakfast. ( loud Tv in breakfast room which may suit most people but I prefer quiet time at breakfeast). Very pleasant staff.

    « Hotel taken over by women motorbike riders »

    We are a group of 30 women who ride motorbikes, Our ride leaders booked Motel Farrington in Tumut for 3 nights with breakfast. The managers were wonderful- they supplied cereal, fruit, juice, tea/coffee as well as cooked bacon, sausages, eggs, baked beans, tomato for us. We used the pool each day after exploring the fun roads around the alpine area and made lots of chatting noise. It was a great weekend and the hotel was a major part of contributing to it. Coles supermarket was nearby as was Target department store. We walked to the restaurants for dinner, which were also in walking distance. Oriental Hotel and Royal Hotel both had reasonable meals but the Royal Hotel was the better of the two.

    « Kitchenetteless motel »

    So..views are not amazing, (unless you enjoy the backyard of the house next door) but the place was tidy, quiet and comfortable. I don't ask much more to a motel. It's located in a street close enough to go walking everywhere, although I suspect in Tumut you can actually go walking almost everywhere. It was not in the main street and there was zero traffic during the night though. There is a kfc in front and that's the only source of noise I could find. So it depends, as usual, on how many beers the chicken eaters take. The staff was friendly, and we didn't expect it but they do the rooms everyday. There's only two things that I couldn't figure out though... 1- There is no kitchen/ette other than a fridge. Not even a teapot. Sort of hard to prepare those tea/coffee bags without them. I wouldn't really call it 'food preparation', which is forbidden. (It's the first time we find a motel without that and/or a microwave. If you have kids you better take this in mind) 2- They offer small bottles of water, at 3aud each, which they leave over the counter like saying 'water!' perhaps expecting you to think it's courtesy. The motel is like 2minutes far from Coles though, so do not suffer you wateraholics. But it sounds like an old style trick, so XXth century.. It has free wifi, parking, and bbq and a tiny outdoors pool. There is also some kind of laundry service, I think.

    « Clean & Tidy with helpful staff »

    My husband & I stayed overnight after traveling to Tumut for a wedding. We found the staff were pleasant and helpful in accommodating our two vehicles. Our upstairs room was neat and tidy and all we needed for a pleasant overnight stay. We also had a lovely cooked breakfast before heading off. If needing accommodation in Tumut again we would stay here.

    Motel reception staff were very helpful and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Motel is only a short walk from the main street with restruants - pubs and good shops . the Tumut area is a good place to stay.

    « disappointing »

    On an overnight stay in Tumut we booked in to this motel after reading other Tripadviser reviews. I am sorry to review this motel very negatively. On arrival we enquired about room availability, preferably on the ground floor as we are not as agile as we would like to be and carrying luggage up stairs is out of the question. We were advised that there was only one room on the ground floor available. We agreed to book this room, however, on reflection we should have inspected it before paying up front for the accommodation. This room was extremely small, bathroom so small we nearly had to back in in order to be able to walk out. So small that it was impossible to dry yourself after showering! This had to be done in a small kitchen type room. The bedroom, which was also very small, had a double bed pushed up against the wall to allow for bunk beds to squeeze into what space was left. We had to push the bed away from the wall as much as we could to eliminate the need to climb over each other to get out of bed. The only way to watch TV was to sit or lie on the bed and if you wanted to eat/drink you had to do the same. No chairs or table anywhere to be seen. I'm hopeful that other rooms in this establishment are a lot better than the one we experienced, however, having said that we will definitely not stay at this motel again and we will recommend to our other wandering grey nomad friends not to stay there either!

    « "Trip to the Snow" »

    Wow from the moment we met Graham and Gail they treated us like long lost family. They told us the places to see around town and also gave us directions to Mt Selwyn Ski fields as well as where to hire ski gear. The rooms were large clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was a delight with a very good selection of cereals as well as a nice hot cooked meal. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone who is visiting the Tumut area. Thank you Graham and Gail for making us feel so welcome in your beautiful part of the country.
