    Motel of choice. On our travel from Brisbane we stay here a few nights a year. Staff are always friendly, rooms comfortable and a good bed. Restaurant operates week nights with good offering. Good value stay.

    « My favourite »

    I've been staying at this motel every month for work for nearly two years. Their rooms rival expensive (often pokey) sydney hotels for comfort. They are huge rooms, wonderful soft beds, lounges in all of them and a table. The price is excellent. Anne is amazing. I just keep coming back. They are my home away from home.

    « Tidy and clean, friendly and communicative staff. »

    The units of this motel are not super flash, nor as soundproof as I'd like, but it is clean, tidy and has an energetic balance to the place that it quiet and unassuming. Staff are friendly and helpful and they were very accommodating for a late check in. If we're in Tamworth again we'll stay again.

    « Good value »

    I was pleasantly surprised. I wasn't sure the motel would be as quiet as other reviews had suggested, because of its position on the main road and the rear door and corridor next to the room. However, the room was clean, very quiet and I slept well. It's nothing special but it definitely does the job for an overnight. Would go back.

    Have stayed here a few times and no complaints. This is our motel of choice in Tamworth. Staff and owners are friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean, comfortable and spacious. Restaurant on site with cheap options.

    « The staff make this place »

    I just had an overnight in Tamworth and glad I chose this motel. The owners, who I think are new, and staff were so friendly, they treated me like a returned guest. Good sized rooms which were clean and comfortable with large parking bay at my rooms door. I was in a room at the front of the motel (#1) but, with the building layout no traffic noise from a busy road out front. I'll be back......

    5 Star gem out in the country. Big modern rooms. Very clean and well laid out. Fridge is well stocked with alcohol soft drinks and snacks. Staff are friendly and there's also a great reasonably priced restaurant. Would definitely stay here again ????

    « Good customer service »

    This hotel has some very lovely staff. Not the most comfortable hotel as it is very dated. However it was good value for money and the as I said before, the customer service is very good. I found the location easy to get in and out of town without a problem as well.

    « Disappointing »

    Cold night noisy air conditioning took along time to heat, mattress was below standard, bathroom.was cold as exhaust fan came on automatically. Greeting from reception staff not the most welcoming. Would not return.

    « Good location »

    Stayed he for a family thing, room was a bit on the small side for 3. But still nice, bed was comfortable continental breakfast was included, but upgraded for $10. We stayed behind the restaurant and the verandah was loud when people walked to rooms, would try to get rooms without the wood verandah. Owners or manager very nice.

    « Restful Night »

    Looking for a place to rest for the night in Tamworth, try Best Western Tamworth Motor Inn. We were travelling to Albury with a group of 18 and we were all well accommodated for here and for a small extra cost, breakfast and dinner are provided in their restaurant.

    « Awesome Service »

    Stayed overnight thanks to a cancelled VA flight. As I had planned to be back in Melbourne I had not brought enough medication (that I must have). But my heartfelt thanks to Adrian the owner who, on a Friday night, took me to a chemist who - it turns out - didn't have the medication I needed but luckily their sister store did. So off we go across town and hey presto! Medication in hand! Where else do you get that kind of service? And to top it off the motel is clean, comfy and the staff awesome! I've stayed in many places but have never been treated so kindly as here!

    « Great Accommodation »

    First time stay at this motel. Due to heavy bookings we were allocated one of the last available rooms, a family room which was very comfortable & quite spacious for our needs. Standard of cleaning was first class. The property rather uniquely has a central internal corridor running between the two ground floor rows of rooms (along the style of a hotel) & leading to the restaurant - fantastic for cold rainy nights. The service in the restaurant & reception was exceptional & the restaurant meals are reasonably priced & well presented.

    There are lot of motels to pick in Tamworth and I'm glad I chose this one. The room was large and immaculate, mini bar and tea and coffee were well stocked and everything worked perfectly. Great breakfast.

    « Great value, Great service, Great big king size comfy bed... »

    For one of the best beds i'v slept in this is the place. Anne was very helpful. We cooked dinner on the bbq and she afforded us BBQ tools, plates salt and pepper the lot. After a hard day's work we just wanted home cooked food. Rooms are clean and roomy. The pool was clean. Nice view of the hills form the back of the Motel.

    « Pleasant overnight stay »

    3rd time staying here and always a pleasure. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Always a pleasant welcome and made to feel welcome. Room service dinner was great as always together with breakfast. Overall a nice stay at a reasonable rate.

    « Comfortable Stay »

    My partner and I stayed here for one night. Check-in was very smooth and overall our stay was comfortable. The only drawback was the strong smell of steak in our room upon arrival. I think the restaurant is just down the hall. We were able to air out the room by leaving the door to the outside open before going to bed.

    « Helpful Staff »

    Ann was so helpful with a special request I made and went above and beyond to organise it on my behalf. The premises are comfortable, clean and the staff so helpful. I would recommend this Best Western.

    « Worst bed »

    The worst bed Iv ever slept in. After trying to survive hot weather at the ALEC we thought let's have some recovery time in a/c comfort. The bed was just atrocious with two very thin waspy pillows . Should of stayed in our swags on the ground. For $134 odd dollars we spent I definitely expected better.

    « Tamworth Motor Inn »

    This motor inn is good value for money. It's a bit dated and the internet was slow but there are new owners and they are slowly changing things. We had two queen sized beds in our room and they were extremely comfortable. The restaurant had a good selection of food and wine.

    « An otherwise good stay marred by the attitude of manager on checkout »

    The room itself was fine. It was generally clean & well appointed. We liked the dispensers for toiletries. Beds comfy but towels a little worn & scratchy. Check out of 10 really is 10, we had housekeeping knocking at 5 minutes past which we thought a little odd. Breakfast was good but very expensive for a motel ($4 for a glass of juice??) but the lady serving was absolutely lovely. It was disappointing that after we checked out our credit card was charged for a drink from the mini bar we didn't have (not one we would ever drink!). Ridiculous really as we'd paid for all the items we did have why on earth would we lie about one more? Obviously there was a miscount or it wasn't replaced after the guests before us. For that reason alone we won't be back to this establishment.

    « Clean and comfortable »

    Two day business trip staying at this small hotel on the Highway on the way into Tamworth. Very friendly, helpful staff, large rooms and comfortable beds. Had a room down the back so despite the hotel been on the highway, it was quiet. Large parking spaces are also appreciated. Did not like the soap and shampoo dispensers in the bathroom which, to be fair, is becoming quite common in hotels these days. The shower gel dispenser emptied on my first night and was not refilled either. The restaurant was a bit overpriced for what I would describe as run of the mill pub food. TV reception was a bit patchy but there was free WIFI (just under 1mbps). Overall a reasonable hotel let down by the restaurant and a couple of the amenities.

    « Immaculate and Great Value »

    Booked in for one night here whilst visiting Tamworth. Got a very good deal in terms of price with the room being large and immaculate in terms of cleanliness. Wi fi was complimentary. We were located at the back of the premises and were not disturbed at all by noise either from other guests or the busy road at the front of the motel.

    4
    « Comfortable and reasonably quite »

    Really nice people and the rooms and pretty good. Management is really helpful. Reasonably quiet given that it's on a busy road, and the walk into town is a bit of a stroll but a pleasant one through some parkland. If you go out the back door you can walk along a river for part of the way as well.

    « What a great Motel »

Close to South Tamworth Bowling club with nice Meals available and only a short easy drive to the heart of Tamworth. The staff were friendly and helpful nothing was too much trouble.

    Asked for the disability room and provided without problem. Check in very friendly. Asked for a shower chair and provided with a smile. Rooms clean tidy and plenty of space. No problem in saying I would stay again. Dinner at the restaurant. Staff friendly and efficient. The whole place makes you think nothing would be a problem. Food was hot, tasty and portions good.

    « We have tried many in Tamworth. »

    We have had cause to stay in Tamworth many, many times. This motel rates up there with the top ones. While not flash, it is well maintained and has accessible parking. The restaurant was very easy to access also. The room could have better lighting for reading at night. We were able to walk directly to the restaurant via a passage that services the rear of all rooms. A great idea for cool nights. Wifi slowish.

    « Fantastic stay! »

    We had 5 rooms booked for family over the weekend and we all cant wait to come back for another stay. Manager Peter is so friendly and welcoming. Rooms are clean and the beds/pillows (OMG) are the so comfy. We all said how good we slept!! Do yourself a favour and book this hotel and order a chicken snitzel for dinner, you will thank me later :)

    « 2 Nights Business Stay »

    Stayed here for 2 nights in May for a business trip to the area. This place ticks all the boxes, it's clean, friendly staff, quiet and the restaurant has good meals that are great value. I would stay here again if in the area.

    « Home when on monster road trip »

    Travelled multitudes of ks on motorcycle. Tried 5 horrendously priced motels in Tamworth. Found this gem, home away from home. Comfy from first words with Peter. Then in room meal so yummy and girls added additional veggies to make a magnificent meal. Very affordable and enjoyed stay

    « One of the best motels I've ever stayed »

    Stayed one night during the Easter break at this Best Western. Very friendly and helpful manager at the reception, he kindly gave us quiet rooms near the back, away from the main road. The room had decent size and plenty space and desks for us to put out our stuff. The bed and the pillow are comfortable and the bathroom is clean and easy to use as well. Another good thing about the bedding: it has the thin blanket for the warm weather, instead of using the thick quilt all year around like some other hotels. Each room has air-con which is really good for the hot weather. As a motel, it even has a mini bar and biscuits for the guest. We are also happy with the Wifi speed. I would love to stay there again next time at Tamworth.

    « Quiet, welcoming and accommodating »

    Stayed for two nights for a business trip. It's well priced, the managers and staff are welcoming and accommodating. It's not the flashiest place but rooms are spacious, clean, well priced and very quiet. The hotel is well situated. Worth staying here.

    « Clean & Welcoming »

    The Room is Modern, Spacious & SPOTLESS. I was there just this Friday to Sunday past for a sporting tournament and made good use of the Pool, Spa, Guest Laundry and WiFi. Peter went out of his way to make me feel welcome. Even though this hotel is right on the main road there was no traffic noise and I slept extremely well. Restaurant was not open during our stay so I cannot comment on it. Would stay here again.

    « A great comfortable stay with friendly service »

    I recently started staying here while traveling on the road for work. It is a great motel that offers all I need: Friendly service - you don't feel like you are just a number. You are made to feel welcomed. Clean, well presented rooms, that offer a great nights sleep. Rooms are spacious and very quiet. Good quality and value for money meals. Both dinner and breakfast were lovely. The oysters were some of the biggest I have every had. When staying in TAMWORTH I can highly recommend the Best Western Tamworth Motor Inn.

    « Value for money »

    A fabulous 3.5 star establishment! Very clean and well maintained As soon as you walk into reception you are greeted by the very friendly and professional smiling Proprietor, Peter McHugh who immediately makes you feel comfortable and at home. The rooms are very comfortable and practical in their layout and appointments and impeccably clean. There are lovely views to the east and traffic noise is non existent. The showers are excellent with great water pressure! The pool and spa are sparkling blue and inviting The restaurant and bar make it unnecessary to drive and have a relaxing ambience. A lovely place to stay!

    « Old style basic motel »

    This motel would have scored a bit higher on the ratings if I hadn't had to face the giant cockroach that crawled out from under my bed on waking. The beds are comfy, there are coffee and tea making facilities and a mini bar that is well stocked. Nice pool area for those sweltering days.

    « Clean, quiet, friendly »

    Last minute booking. We were all tired after a long road trip. Despite being on the main road, the hotel room was quiet. Staff friendly and accommodating. Parking for buses and trailers. Will be our default accommodation in Tamworth from now on.

    « Pretty good »

    Clean and well maintained. Has a good restaurant. Had a great steak for dinner but avocado for breakfast was a bit hard. Good spot for an overnight while passing through. Has a bar also. Continental breakfast $15 is good value Rooms a bit small but pretty good for class of accomodation. Bathroom was renovated and had good water pressure. Had a single bed and a double bed.

    « 3-star »

    I didn't find this place as great as the last reviewers, however in saying that, it was a sufficient place to stay for my needs. Definitely a 3-star accommodation. The room was clean and had all the basics, however could be improved by getting new pillows (they were shocking). Staff were friendly.

    5
    « Excellent Stay »

    I only stayed one night but was extremely happy with my accommodation. The room & bathroom were spotless. All furniture, carpets & fittings in such excellent order that I thought my room must have been recently refurbished. Not so apparently, just well maintained. There's a nice small dining room in which to have dinner & breakfast. I paid $14 for juice, cereal, toast, jam & tea which I thought was reasonable. A big welcome from the owner & on departure there's a spacious lounge where you can sit & relax if your waiting for a pick up. Internet available. Morning papers in the breakfast room. As others have mentioned, there's an internal hallway by which you can reach the public rooms without braving the elements. Yes, it's furnishings are a little old fashioned, but comfortable & relaxing. The queen bed was a shade firm for me but that's a personal preference. A small pool which I didn't try. Otherwise all the fittings you would expect, flat screen TV, mini bar, alarm, aircon. etc. Oh, & hot water that's really hot & strong. Recommended.

    « Located Well and Fits The Bill »

    Good sized rooms all on the ground-floor are somewhat dated but meet all requirements with queen beds, complimentary Wi-Fi and extra-wide car parking spaces (aimed at travellers including light trucks and trailer parking. The licensed on-site restaurant is handy but not open on the Sunday night visited but is available also for breakfast. Breakfast and a limited range of meals can be delivered to your room. There are also several take-away outlets nearby. An outdoor pool is available and rooms at the back of the motel are well insulated from the busy main road.All in all a good average standard motel at reasonable value but not budget.

    « Old style motel with terrific floor plan »

    Virtually across the road from Best Western Tamworth Motel is the newer Best Western Plus, which has higher prices. We were really pleased we had chosen the older property for a two night stay because we found the layout really good. A central corridor has rooms on either side. Rooms have a door to the corridor as well as a door to the outside, where cars are parked. The corridor is used for deliveries of breakfast, cleaning etc. Very sensible. Solid brick walls ensure no noise is heard from adjoining rooms. The rooms themselves are spacious and well planned. I loved the long bench in the bathroom, and the large fluffy towels. Our beds were comfortable, too. The pool is positioned close to the office at the front, so well away from rooms. New owner, Peter, told me he plans to establish a guest sitting area near the pool, to encourage guests to mingle and enjoy the lovely gardens. We generally choose accommodation close to the main street of the town we are visiting. There must be some motels in the CBD of Tamworth, but most appear to be well outside the town. Many are on Goonoo Goonoo Road - (pronounced Gunna Ganoo Road!!!) This busy road is on the far side of a flood plain that separates the town from the road, so you cannot walk into town. However there are two routes with bridges into Peel Street, where the restaurants and shops are located. At approximately $120 a night, we though the motel was good value and would stay there again if in the region.

    « A great place to stay - highly recommend. »

    This was a terrific place to stay and would definitely come back. The owner/manager was so helpful and friendly, the rooms were immaculate (loved the towels and bed) and it had free wifi and plenty of tea/coffee/milk and biccies as complimentary. I would certainly recommend this as a place to come and stay.

    « Great clean motel, restaurant and staff »

    My first stay at this motel, but from the moment you enter reception the staff (Peter) was very helpful. The motel is about a kilometre from the main CBD, but very quiet considering being on a main road. The room was very clean and has a great shower which I like when on a business trip. I dined in the restaurant that night. The food was very good, and they had a good selection of wine at very reasonable price. Plenty of parking. Interestingly, you enter your room from where you park, but there is an internal door leading to a hall through to the restaurant, which would be great in adverse weather. There are several Best Western motels in the Tamworth area, but the Tamworth Motor Inn was better priced. All in all, a great place to stay.

    « Great experience »

    Thanks to Peter and Marcelle for an amazing experience staying at your motel, the rooms were well maintained and the atmosphere was very pleasant and the overall stay was outstanding. There was ample parking for my trailer and the early breakfast request was no issue, thank you so much.

    « A night in Tamworth »

    The room is great, it got air con, Foxtel, fridge with drinks other than just milk and very clean.The owner is very helpful as on what to see and what is happening around the area. very impress with this place. If you do stay here in the winter make sure when you get up and check your car first, the windows might freeze up over night and you might need to start your car's heater to melt the ice.
