"Tenterfield Traveller"

21girlie, Coffs Harbour, Australia 24/06/2022

Checked into this motel on a chilly Winter's afternoon. Check in was quick and friendly. We requested a room set back from the road and this request was met. Our room albeit a little dated was very comfortable and quiet. Appreciated the efficient heating which quickly warmed the room. There was a jug for tea making, a toaster for preparing breakfast and a small bar fridge. The bed and pillows were super comfy and ensured a fabulous sleep. So impressed with the bed I took a photo of the brand! Want the same at home. The only detraction from our stay was the obvious mould in the bathroom…ceiling above shower, bottom of bathroom door and shower door. This was reported to Reception on checkout. Otherwise we had a very pleasant stay.

"Spa Room"

phillali2, Coffs Harbour, Australia 24/05/2022

We were in town for 3 days catching up with friends. Very central location. Very clean and comfortable. The weather was bleak but the room was warm. Enough in the kitchenette to have brekky sorted. Reliable internet for a business call.

"Great Experience"

Traveller237090, Sydney, Australia 15/05/2022

Had one night at the Best Western Tenterfield and it was great. Felt so welcome and had a lovely dinner in the restaurant. The experience was made us want to come back to Tenterfield and spend more time exploring and enjoying the terrific hospitality

"Good value, great staff"

AusMossy, Mount Coolum, Australia 07/04/2022

A high quality country motel for the price. I was towards the end of a multi week solo road trip and this was one of the best places I had stayed while travelling the eastern states. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and reasonably well appointed. The onsite restaurant is good and I loved the in room breakfast, though the coffee might have been effected by the town water. Would stay here again if in the area.

"Nice motel"

sophie41, LISMORE,NSW 20/02/2022

Nice weekend away with friends - I thought might be noisy with traffic but didn't hear a thing . Nice clean rooms - very spacious - would stay again. We had dinner and drinks in restaurant- food was lovely - highly recommend ! Only thing I missed was no pool - I like to have a swim


User 17/01/2022

I would not recommend anyone to eat in the Restaurant, go to the local pubs. The accommodation is dated, in saying that the room was spacious and reasonably clean. The staff are lovely and obliging, however there was a power outage which left us in darkness for two hours, we did not receive a courtesy call from Management to see if we needed anything or offer assistance.

"Our favourite in Tenterfield"

PineappleSkip, Woodford, Australia 28/12/2021

This is a nice motel with pleasant staff. The restaurant is always worth visiting and has nice reasonably priced options. We booked late, the hotel was busy and we got an accessible room, which I wouldn't recommend. It is right by the highway and only comes with a chair rather than a couch. However there isn't a lot of truck traffic and the room was reasonably well insulated. Still our 'go to' place in Tenterfield.

"Great room.....BUT having to listen to Doof Doof music was not ok."

Kaz M, Newcastle, Australia 09/08/2021

Ok, so I can't find an email address for the motel so have to put it here. We stayed 2 nights. Our room, the King Deluxe with spa was sooooo good!! I mean really good. 4 stars. The bed was fantastic, room to swing a horse literally, kitchenette, bath spa, washer + dryer. The best room in the motel. Smick. The lady in reception on check in was lovely. Understandably, a continental breakfast was only on offer. Lovely cafes downtown for that. Support the locals!! BUT....(thus the 2 stars) We were asked on check in if we wanted house keeping the next day. I mentioned emptying the bins would be good. They mentioned the towels which I was ok with one way or the other. We returned back from tripping around to find old towels not removed, new towels sitting on the desk and the bin which was full, hadn't been changed. On the first afternoon around 3pm music with the doof doof started. We thought oh, ok, a neighbour has their music up. It didn't finish for a few hours later. On day 2, the music AGAIN start at 3pm and lasted until 7pm. I went to see and discover the conference room was being used as an exercise/dance studio. I went to the lady on reception who didn't really know what was going on and had stuff all concern for my annoyance at having to put up with doof doof. This event was not mentioned at booking or booking in. Whilst we totally get places need to find extra ways to support themselves in these times, we were in a motel to rest not hear doof doof for hours. What took the absolute mark, on Thursday morning at 0550 the doof doof started AGAIN!! FFS...really. Needless to say we left earlier than expected and were really p.o. at this happening during our stay.

"Clean and Tidy"

Donna W, Sunshine Coast, Australia 19/06/2021

We stayed in a large room down the back and loved it. There was a spa bath, washing machine, dining area and a table and chairs out the back. The room was spotless and warm. Room service came quickly and was delicious. We were delighted with our stay here.

"Lovely, no complaints"

amanda f, Brisbane, Australia 09/04/2021

We normally stay in apartments, upmarket, very modern, incredible views etc etc. For our recent "grab a week off whilst covid is quiet" trip we decided to keep the accommodation simple and spread our money around the towns. We could not have been more pleasantly surprised, couldn't have asked for better value for money and it this motel was definitely not "simple". We were close to the main road through town but slept well, our room was spotless, well fitted out and value for money. Staff were absolutely lovely and assisted with recommendations for meals and sights.

"disappointed support worker Lismore"

User 16/03/2021

Booked the Henry Parkes Tenterfield months before oracles of the bush 2021, only to find out week before i am not on the computer & there fully booked out. Most disappointing was the new manager not willing to acknowledge he had made a mistake or putting effort in to correcting the problem


DorsetGuy, Brisbane, Australia 27/02/2021

This is a highway motel with a restaurant. After a nine hour drive I arrived with a prepaid reservation, just wanted a meal in the restaurant and an early night. At check in I was advised that the restaurant was closed for a wedding. The receptionist was apologetic but said my only option was to walk to a restaurant in town, which she kindly booked. I could have driven, but didn't want to lose my spot in the carpark, which had more rooms than spaces. Yes, this is a MOTEL. My early night was a non starter because of music and loud guests at the noisy wedding. I eventually fell asleep through exhaustion and earplugs. On checkout I voiced my disappointment and was told it was out of the motel's control. My response was that there was an obligation to all paying guests, not just those attending the function. She said she would “take my comments onboard.” She didn't even bother to apologise. My parting words were to tell her to expect an appropriate and honest review. She couldn't have cared less. Needless to say, I won't be returning. This place gets one star for the comfortable bed.

"Excellent Service & Hospitality"

jimmodi, Brisbane, Australia 21/01/2021

Good service , professional approach, quick and easy check in - check out process. Caring personality. good knowledge of area & traditions. Excellent food for all group of customer except vegetarian. Hopefully will improve menu.

"Weekend at Tentafield"

suemccar, Toowoomba, Australia 04/01/2021

Comfortable rooms and friendly service. Rooms were made available so family could be close by. Unfortunately we didn't use the restaurant this visit as we had family occasions to attend. We would certainly stay here again.

"Dog Friendly"

thaibiscus2016, Gold Coast, Australia 11/12/2020

We have stayed here twice in 2 weeks. The staff are wonderful, especially Julie from reception. They all go out of their way to make your stay special. We travelled with a 4 month old puppy. An Assistance Dog in training. Harlow. We were given dog friendly rooms which were perfect for our stay. Our meals were delicious last night. Thank you to the Chef.

"Ask for room away from road"

143debram, Tweed Heads, Australia 07/10/2020

We had a room close to the road which was quite noisy however, apparently they do have rooms up the back away from the road, so ask for one of those. The restaurant was good however quite expensive so it pays to look around. Rooms are ready for a renovation.

"Best in Tenterfield"

User 27/09/2020

We have stayed here a few times and have had a very nice night in the spa suite. The location sits high looking over this beautiful town. Cold nights the restaurant provide a lovely fire and beautiful ambience to enjoy the gorgeous food on the menu. We also enjoyed local red wine. A must !!

"Hit and Miss"

User 08/08/2020

Room was nicely presented and enjoyed the spa. However, there was out of date milk in fridge that my daughter drank, air con that worked only when it wanted to, some lights that didn't work and kids menu in the room book but not in the restaurant.


User 05/08/2020

We stayed in " Henrys Cottage" recently for a special girls celebration and wow what a gem it is.The staff were fabulous while the cottage is exceptional in all regards and everything single detail has been thought of. Thank you so much.

"Inexpensive, comfortable and friendly "

Belindah66, Pottsville, Australia 31/07/2020

We stayed at the Best Western in Tenterfield for one night. From check in we knew this was going to be a good stay. Really friendly staff, clean and spacious rooms and handy to the town. Dinner in the restaurant was hearty and delicious. Highly recommended.

"Comfortable stay"

GClife, Gold Coast, Australia 29/07/2020

We only stayed one night, friendly reception and very fastidious concerning hygiene and covid restrictions, always good to see. Comfortable rooms. We elected to dine in, as there was not much open in Tenterfield, the restaurant has a good menu and reasonable prices, nice to see local wines from the Granite Belt featured.

"Tenterfield Traveller"

harrisonford2020, Murwillumbah, Australia 23/07/2020

Pleasant overnight stay. Arrived latish 8.30pm. Extremely nice lady in Reception - offered us an alternative car space as allocated one was a bit tight and we had a new car. Room warm and cosy on a cold night. Pleasant breakfast in Dining Room.

"Henry's Cottage"

Jeay L, Kingscliff, Australia 26/05/2020

Located right next to Best Western which was 'very good as we were able to get room service after a long days drive. The accommodation is very comfortable with a fireplace and split system air conditioning/heating. The food was very good and reasonably priced and their licence enabled us to order wine with our meal. The fire was already alight and the room lovely and warm. They were very helpful and friendly


101rhondad, Lismore, Australia 31/03/2020

Central to town,the rooms are spacious with cooking facilities. We had a room with a spa because of the drought it didn't work so they gave us another room.Staff were friendly, the menu in the dining room looked nice.

"Great place to stay"

Lynette L, Bribie island 12/01/2020

We have always stayed here on a numerous trips to and through Tenterfield. Lovely lovely staff always and good clean rooms. Intimate dining room and a welcoming lounge especially in winter with the fire burning. Spent Mantra happy moments solo and with family in front of that fire.

"Restaurant is awesome"

Fi S, Mullumbimby, Australia 18/10/2019

I was not staying at The Henry Parks just went there for dinner and it was so very scrumptious and the staff were absolutely lovely. My friend had the raspberry sorbet and said it was magnificent hint have the lamb cutlets they were to die for

"Clean and Convenient"

Ian A, Tamworth, Australia 24/06/2019

Stayed her for 2 nights for work, the room was clean and comfortable the shower could have a bit more pressure but otherwise fine, the amenities were standard Jug Toaster usual instant coffee etc. Ate here both nights, the food was good and generous servings, usual fair Snitty, parma, steak pasta,

"Travelling "

farrell52, Sydney, Australia 06/06/2019

I rang and asked “Do you have a QUIET (emphasis intentional) room for the evening. A very happy person answered in the affirmative asking where we were. We were onl 500 metres away and off we went. We were offered a room at more than booking site rates and asked for another option. We were given a room which was in the middle of the New England Highway and every truck drove under or over our bed, which thankfully was relatively comfortable as we were awake for a good proportion of the night. I would think that if the person behind the desk new we needed a quiet room we would have been informed of the noise issue and we could have gone elsewhere. Room clean and comfortable. People really nice if not able to understand their clients needs and the restaurant was adequate. Would I go back? Yes under the right conditions.

"Better Options Around"

miseemooo, gold coast 17/05/2019

Really really noisy with trucks passing all night. Beds are hard and there were no electric blankets on them. Reverse cycle air con did not warm the room enough. No microwave and no biscuits to have with tea and coffee. Fridge was tiny and filled with all their own mini bar items. Heaps better value at Jumbuck across the road where we stayed previously and it's nowhere near as noisy.

"Sleepy Tenterfield"

SHC58, Brisbane, Australia 13/04/2019

Not the best country motels we have ever stayed in, check in staff m9t exactly helpful or welcoming, would no stay here again...plenty of other motels here or even continue onto Glen Innes or Armidale

"Tight parking"

Honesttravel99, Australia 12/04/2019

The room itself was fine, yes dated but essentially fine. Bed OK, shower pretty good. But the parking? We were in a room near a corner of the building and arriving late there was only 1 park left - OK of you arrived on a bike, but I drive a landcruiser. My only solution was to put a note on the card on each side telling them what room we were in and if they wanted to leave early come knock on the door. But; first world problem. Breakfast was bloody good, but a tad (OK, a lot) small for the price.

"Best Western Tenterfield"

User 24/03/2019

Great value for money. Friendly staff. Great location to town. Great little restaurant. Happy to stay here every time i visit Tenterfield. Highly recommend to anyone travelling to Tenterfield. Happy days


Susan L, Gold Coast, Australia 21/03/2019

The room we stayed in had the screws missing from the lock on the door. The bathroom door would not close and the bed was as hard as a rock. The receptionist on the day we arrived was very disinterested in what I was saying however the lass when we left was quite pleasant

"Pleasent Stay"

User 10/03/2019

On arrival was nice to be greeted by friendly staff more than happy to deal with us, while the building looks a bit tired and dated the room was clean and comfortable. We went to the dining room for evening meal, WOW! what an experience. Once again smiling cheery staff, and the meal was superb! The chef deserves a Gold Star, best meal we've had in a long time. Overall a comfortable and pleasant experience.

"Thundering trucks past your bed"

RJB1234, Nimbin, Australia 18/02/2019

The positive was a clean room and an okay bed... that's all. We stayed one night whilst exploring the nearby national parks. We moved on after one night because the hotel has such bad noise from thundering trucks (hotel is in town but it is a major highway busy all night). At check in I asked for a room at the back and with 5 spare rooms expected this would not be a problem. The staff member barked at me that ‘the rooms are quiet and no one has ever complained about the traffic noise.' She clearly lied as even with all windows (single glazing) closed the trucks could be felt and heard all night long. The AC from the restaurant was next to our bathroom window and made a beeping noise all night, and our own AC was so old and warn it squeaked when used so much you could not hear TV. I would not stay here again because of traffic noise and a staff member who on the occasion I interacted with her was unpleasant which is rare for Tenterfield.


User 04/02/2019

There is a definite reality gap between the Motel's website and the rooms provided.We should have cancelled out when we entered the allocated room. But after a tiring long drive we opted for convenience rather than quality. This is a very tired motel. The recent attempts at upgrading reveal what was in situ before. The TV sits above a tiled area that was previously the location of the fridge! Would never stay here again even though we drive to Brisbane about three times a year.

"Going Home"

Roving11221305405, Mandurah, Australia 31/12/2018

My husband and I made a quick trip back to Tenterfield. We stayed at Henry Parkes Hotel it was above and beyond all our expectations. Emma and the team were amazing, they were friendly, happy,professional and knowledgeable. Thank you for making our stay in Tenterfield memorable. From the Dickie's

"Staff are wonderful"

Debra D, Gold Coast, Australia 08/12/2018

This is a tired motel in a tired country town. Lots of updating and freshening up needed inside and outside. We booked the disability room but changed when we realised that we needed to navigate a steep driveway to get to the restaurant. The reception staff were very obliging giving us a comfortable room with easy access to a good parking spot and the restaurant. However this meant no grab rails in the bathroom and a small shower. Still a fairly comfortable night's sleep. The dinner and the breakfast were great.

"Loved it "

trippingx3, Sunshine Coast, Australia 26/11/2018

We got the family room and I highly recommend this room. It's massive, has all the comforts of home including the added bonus of a washing machine and dryer! Comes in handy after travelling for a week with kids. This room also has the luxury of a rather large spa bath, great for melting the car stiffness from your body! The staff here are amazing and so friendly, the restaurant has amazing food. Highly recommend this hotel for single travellers, couples or family.

"Great choice in Tenterfield"

RSJTD, Sydney, Australia 20/11/2018

Room has all you need. Restaurant has hearty big servings of country food. Apple crumble was delicious. Very helpful, friendly staff. Couldn't do enough for us. Breakfast was good too. Short uncovered walk from rooms to restaurant. Just love this town. Everything is within an easy walking distance from the motel - Shops; Cafes; Clubs and Supermarket.

"Lovely place close to amenities"

NorthStar65614912277, Wagga Wagga, Australia 10/11/2018

The staff were great and the dinning room and menu looked lovely. The room was big and the bathroom was enormous. Free internet and 3 free Austar movie channels. The out side court area was nice but there was lots of jazmin flowers which could upset your hayfever or asthma.

"Great Location and Comfortable room"

Garry87654321, Palm Beach, Australia 12/10/2018

Very comfortable and clean room and the location was quite close to town, Indeed just a short walk. Staff were all friendly and efficient. All made for a very pleasant stay indeed. And Tenterfield is a most interesting country town to visit.

"Great service and ambience"

mikekaye2018, Mandurah, Australia 28/08/2018

We stayed a few nights to catch up with family. The Henry Parkes is located in a most interesting country town, Tenterfield. As it was winter we were feeling the cold but the room at the back was comfortable and quiet. The dining experience was very good too with the wood fire cheering us up.

"Comfortable stay but dated"

ijohns326561, Toowoomba, Australia 19/08/2018

The motel was close to everything. The room was very comfortable. The bed was good as was the heating. Room decor was dated. Staff at reception, restaurant and house-keeping were all wonderful. I would stay here again.

"Comfortable place to relax"

kersten2018, Healesville, Australia 03/08/2018

Extremely clean and welcoming accommodation in a beautiful historic town. Our room was spacious with a lounge area which was perfect for entertaining friends and was set back off the road which was quiet at night. The spa bathroom was beautifully decorated and the washing and drying facilities were fantastic given I had been on the road for three days. Definitely would stay again,

"Great motel, very clean, quiet and good parking. Brilliant restaurant and great service."

79Landcruiser, Sydney, Australia 23/07/2018

I am not a fan of motels but I would definitely stay at this one again. Well priced, large rooms and very clean. Dinner was excellent, also has a bar and great friendly lady from The Netherlands serving. She couldn't do enough for us.

"Superb restaurant"

jahn305, Tamworth, Australia 22/07/2018

Clean , comfortable ,warm air con , however not having a biscuit with tne cuppa after a long journey was dissappointing. The highlight of our stay was the restaurant . A great menu and friendly service, Wood fire ambiance on a cold night.

"Spotless room with wheelchair access"

Judy C, Vermont South, Australia 19/07/2018

Spotless motel ground floor rooms with a large bathroom with wheelchair access, close to city centre. A friendly staff member guided us to a great evening meal at the Bowling Club. The motel also provided Breakfast to go! With a bacon and egg roll and coffee, which was great for travellers.

"Henry's Cottage was perfect for our group getaway."

P4950FTandreaf, Pottsville 15/07/2018

Great house with plenty of room for our group. Large bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and equipped with all we needed. Staff were very friendly and helpful. No oven in the house but we managed with a couple of electric fry pans from home. Nice central location with Coles very close. Plenty of wood supplied for the two fire places and heaps of parking.

"Hang your head in shame."

User 13/07/2018

Best Western: your brand is being severely compromised by this dreadful motel. Shocking smell in the room accompanied by a serious lack of basic facilities such as only one blanket on the bed (in minus 3 temperatures), no microwave, no table to eat from, tattered torn and soft furnishings and unusual wall decorations. Let us not mention the asthma from overpowering bleach and/or disinfectant used in the room. Such a pity that such a lovely little town is blighted in this way.

"One Night in Tenterfield"

ByeByeDXB, Brisbane 12/07/2018

Tenterfield was our first overnight stop on the drive from Brisbane to Sydney. We booked by telephone enroute and received a warm welcome when we arrived. Our room was at the back (quiet and well away from the main road) and huge. We'd paid a little more for the room but it was worth it. Room was the size of a small apartment and very well equipped.The bed was particularly comfortable. Weather was not good so we had both dinner and breakfast at the motel. Food was good as was the table service. A bit more expensive than the usual motel but worth it. Certainly recommend the Entry Parks Tenterfield.

"Excellent Location"

Terry C, Launceston, Australia 28/06/2018

Central location in town. Executive queen room was excellent, room , quiet and warm Restaurant meals were excellent as was the presentation and attitude of the staff. Car parking outside unit. Will definitely stay again. Thanks Eva.


John E, Brisbane, Australia 14/06/2018

Good central motel with a short walk to the town centre. Friendly staff who assisted us immediately with a tv reception problem. The restaurant onsite was good and sometimes it's nice just to walk a few metres for dinner after a long drive. The room was clean and comfortable with sometimes a little road noise intruding from the passing trucks,but by and large fairly well insulated so truck noise really wasn't a problem that affected our sleep.All motels in Tenterfield will get some noise with the main highway going through the town centre. We would be happy to choose this motel again.

"Good Location, Comfortable Stay"

RosemaryLT, Narooma, Australia 19/04/2018

The room was a good size, the bed was comfortable and it was an easy walk to the shops and restaurants. It was nice to have separate lounge chairs to relax in. Although it was on the highway, it was not too noisy.

"This restaurant is not serving restaurant standard food: Awful food"

Humbletravelle2017, Sydney, Australia 09/04/2018

We stayed one night in this motel. The room was an average. We ate dinner at the restaurant and its food was total disastrous. I ordered 3 Lamb cutlets which came with chips and verges. The cutlets were deep fried with crumbs. They were greasy and tasted unfresh and simply off. Pepper sauce was thickened as if it was made for wall paper paste. This style of cutlet cooking was not clearly stated on the menu, it only says “ lamb cutlets”. If I knew I would not have ordered the dish which cost $30 for 3 chops. The vegetables were boiled to death and lost freshness. The cook simply knows how to kill a good dish. We were hoping for some local produced fresh meats and verges, oh, no, but only in my dreams! The staff were not keen how we thought about the food and did not even like to know the feedback, simply showing no passion on what they are doing. Pub food and services are better than this lot and they call this “restaurant food.” Oh, I have been conned. That is all I can say about the whole thing.

"Great stop over"

vippoo, Scone, Australia 16/03/2018

I felt this particular motel represented excellent value for my dear old wife and I. Paying around 120 for the room for just the 1 night, the place did the job and was more than clean and comfortable. Very freidnly staff too

"Just your average highway motel"

Phil M, Tuncurry, New South Wales, Australia 07/03/2018

Stopped at this motel as part of a much longer trip with a group of twelve. Clean comfortable average room as was expected. Located on main street close to all required amenities, restaurants, hotels and takeaways.

"Definitely not up to the 5 star rating, more like 3, very poor value for money."

OldfartWal, Brisbane Region, Australia 27/01/2018

So overly disappointing, stayed here as it was listed as 5 star, definitely not 5 star, closer to 3. Room was well appointed, BUT, toilet wasn't properly clean, neither was the rest of the room, stocked fridge looks like everything had been in there for a very long time, went down the road for drinks & nibbles. A/C had issues, sometimes it was cold sometimes it was cooler outside the room than in, maybe ok in winter but not in January, roof module in the bathroom had no light globe, just the heater globes, again maybe good during winter but mid January was very plain. Food was awesome in the restaurant, we ate both dinner & breakfast, a bit expensive but top notch fare, so give it a pass. No pool?????? I was told over the phone there was a pool, when we arrived we found in th room book, 'pool is down the road at the local baths', when asking the staff they advised the pool had been removed, how do you call yourself 5 star with no pool? TV worked, Austar was a joke. either channels where just static or worse offering than normal TV stations, maybe they shouldn't advertise it on their sign outside, just disappointing. Room needed freshening up, lots of marks all around the place, gardens unkempt, grounds unkempt, not surprisingly, we were virtually the only guests staying there. Next time we'll probably book somewhere different, it wasn't cheap & the facilities aren't up to the price asked, very poor value for money


88Candy888, Port Macquarie, Australia 25/01/2018

VERY clean rooms, comfortable with great appliances. Perfect for an overnight or week long. Staff friendly and extremely helpful. Restaurant & Room service FABULOUS. Best oysters Kilpatrick in my life! Big Brekkie was massive and scrumptous.

"Very tired room with uncomfortable bed "

fairdinkem, Perth, Australia 21/01/2018

This property is in desperate dying need of a refurbishment. All the signs of a bypassed town are here in this motel. The room had been cleaned in a lacklustre fashion. Foxtel was not working and when we asked the staff to come and have a look at it for us they came to the room turned the TV on and off and declared “Oh well it's not working sorry” We had room service for dinner and then breaky in the morning both meals were surprisingly fabulous and plentiful however the room let us down one more time by not having a dinner/breakfast table. I would not go out of my way to stay at the The Henry Parkes again unless I found myself too tired too travel to the next town for more options.

"Asthmatics beware of this motel"

84Cedarhouse, Sydney, Australia 09/01/2018

We were passing through country NSW and needed accommodation for the night, so chose the Best Western, The Henry Parkes Tenterfield to stay. Upon entering the room (queen size) a stale, musty smell met us at the door followed by heavy cleaning bleach smells coming form the bathroom. This should have rang alarm bells with us, but we decided to stay due to having arrived late. My partner suffered a bad asthma attack after only 2 hours sleep caused by the rank musty & cleaning bleach odours from this room. The room was also very stuffy The room had been partly renovated with new covers, there had been an update in the bathroom which sadly the shower leaked all over the floor whilst showering. The motel has a restaurant but I did not eat here so cannot comment. Parking was a little difficult with the odd angle parking arrangements and the carpark was full. Located on the main road as a lot of the motels in Tenterfield are so noise could be heard from the room. I would not recommend staying here if you suffer from Asthma.

"Very good room, terrible restaurant"

sasanqua, Sydney 11/11/2017

Good motel in an interesting town. Our room was large and comfortable, modern and clean. It was an excellent room. Parking at door, some traffic noise, but almost every motel in town is on the main road. The motel restaurant however, was dreadful. An average home cook would do better. It was a Monday night, so perhaps it was their off night, but if you can't at least try, don't bother opening.

User 17/10/2017

Lovely - fabulous for big family, or group of friends. Disappointing that only microwave provided - no hob or oven. OK for a couple staying a few nights, but would be tricky for a large family. Also no laundry facilities... and local laundrette has notice on door "closed - all machines broken'!!

"Good Motel"

Diane R, Beaudesert, Australia 14/10/2017

Enjoyed a night at this motel and is very well located in the town. Easy access to rooms and very comfortable room with plenty of space. The bed was quite good and didn't hear any noise so a good night sleep.

"The bed was the highlight"

Martin E, Pacific Coast Australia, Australia 11/10/2017

Nice room, great bed, and the rest should meet your needs. I stayed for 4 nights and found a few niggly things that make this an average place. For example, there's not really anywhere comfortable to sit even though there's a lounge in the room; it's old, tired, and saggy and terrible for my back. Poor water pressure in the shower and not very soundproof are a couple of other downsides. Housekeeping did a fantastic job of making the room up each day with crisp, fresh linen and towels. The room always smelt great too. The main downside was that there wasn't always enough parking out the front of the units, which surprised me a lot. The only suitable parking was in a carpark at the top of the premises, about 100 metres away. You wouldn't want to have to use it if you had luggage or if it was raining, which it was when I got caught out. It's average, overall, and if you're just passing through town then it will meet your needs just fine.

Lovely hotel/motel in the heart of Tenterfield. We booked a king spa room and really enjoyed the room layout, space and loved the artwork! Very easy to park, breakfast was great and the people at reception were BRILLIANT. Would stay again!

"Lovely overnight stay"

User 21/09/2017

We made a last minute booking and stayed here for a night. Very comfortable and relaxing experience. Room and bathroom were clean, towels and linens crisp and white, bed very comfortable. Room was warm and comfortable overnight, I had expected to need the heater on but didn't need it. We ate dinner and breakfast in the onsite restaurant, meals were delicious, fresh produce, fish and steak cooked just as we wanted them. Breakfast as great, eggs perfect. Staff and service was friendly, efficient and professional. Prices reasonable. Great value for money, will def stay here if in town again!

"Excellent value for money"

oldfartSydney, Frenchs Forest, Australia 27/07/2017

Had a night at this hotel on our way from Sydney to Coolum to visit our son. Requested a room away from the road and was offered room 254. Room was well presented with a king size bed. Room was large with a kitchenette. Bathroom was large and recently renovated. Had a bath spa which was great to have a soak in and was modern and clean. Room was very clean. The staff on arrival were friendly and very obliging. Even suggested we park in the carport at the back to avoid the frosts overnight. Had our dinner in the restaurant, food and presentation was excellent, and staff delightful. Nothing was too much of an effort. 5 minute walk into town, but felt more comfortable back at the hotel.

"Not quite like the photos on the internet"

SunshineCoastRider, Coolum Beach, Australia 15/07/2017

Clean and tidy rooms but the hotel grounds were unkept with overgrown lawns garden and moss everywhere Bizarre pictures hanging in the rooms mine was two dogs cleaning themselves, didn't get that ?? The restaurant food was good fair but commanding high prices for what wasn't that special. Restaurant service was slow with one waitress in that could have easily handled the amount of patrons dining, but didn't. Ample off street parking which was good

"Best by default"

User 13/07/2017

The fact is there are no great hotels in Tenterfield, this is the best one in town as far as I know.. but that doesnt mean it's great. The young lady on reception was very nice and helpful and made a great first impression. She is actually the highlight of this otherwise ordinary establishment. Thee place itself is very convenient and easy to navigate around. The rooms are not far from reception and the restaurant. However the restaurant is expensive for what you get. The spa room was nice for the price about $150, but dont expect the Hilton ! Some of the furniture is very basic and there was no real kettle, just a plastic thing which I cant beleive people still use to boil water in.. unless you want a huge dose of bpa.. So I couldnt have a cup of tea.. Otherwise the room is large and well ventilated. The bathroom and spa was great, it has a washer and dryer which can be very handy. The bed is huge and comfortable.

"Tenterfield, lovely autumn place"

Duncan C, Darwin, Australia 11/07/2017

Clean, friendly place to stay. Enjoyed it. Nice price also. Easy parking. Easy access to town shopping. Located on main street. Also had breakfast, which was very nice. The staff were very helpful with directions in finding museums etc

"Best motel we have stayed in!"

User 10/07/2017

This was a lovely motel with a great big room! We stayed in the Deluxe Room which had a King Bed and a single bed and the most amazing bathroom in a motel I have ever seen! We didn't use the spa bath, but the shower was great and there was heaps of room with a heating light (definitely needed in winter)! It was a small walk into town to have dinner but there are a few options to then choose from. Continental breakfast was included when we booked and it was adequate for what it was - other than the drip coffee which has so weak. We also ordered room service for dessert and that was wonderful!

"Excellent service and friendly staff"

Duffer1966, Blessington, Ireland 08/07/2017

Stayed here for a night, staff are friendly and helpful. Had a meal at the restaurant it was well priced and good food. The room was cosy and clean, what more is needed. Very well priced too. I will definitely stay here again if I am traveling through the area.

Highly recommended the beds are comfortable and extremely clean the staff were awesome and the restaurant was tops too Parking was a little problem and I say little but hey if other people parked properly there wouldn't be a problem in my opinion Cheers


IceTropez, Helsinki 06/07/2017

Sometimes you need to stop but I would not recommend picking this establishment. It's a basic motel which is fine but two of my family got some sort of rash / bites from sleeping there. Maybe coincidence, maybe not. I would bet there is lice if you ask me.

"Warm on a cold night"

Cathie C, Melbourne, Australia 04/07/2017

A very nice looking hotel. A free continental breakfast was great. Despite the freezing night we were cosy inside. A heater in the bathroom would have been nice and a few trucks rumbled through in the night, but otherwise we had a very enjoyable stay

"Commitment to service "

KP_Esther, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia 02/07/2017

It was the staff at The Henry Parkes which made our stay what it was. All of the staff - from reception to housekeeping to the waitresses in the hotel's restaurant - displayed a genuine commitment to customer service. Based on that I would stay here again. The rooms are basic yet they are clean and comfortable and affordable. The restaurant has been beautifully refurbished and the meals are lovely. The hotel is located in the Main Street of Tenterfield which is a really pretty little town.

"Excellent Accoimmodation"

woolahra, Gilgandra, Australia 11/06/2017

Have stayed at this property several times. Excellent spacious quiet rooms. Accommodation is spacious & well layed out. Beds are comfortable & the standard of cleaning is excellent. Ground floor accommodation facing the highway but without the usual highway noise. All in all a quiet & comfortable nights accommodation. We dined in the onsite restaurant where the service was excellent but not matched by the meal which was fairly ordinary.

"Ok for an overnight stop "

User 22/04/2017

We stayed here overnight as traveling from QLD to Sydney. Was very clean & tidy. Tea & coffee making facilities. Restaurant on premises. All in all was good for the price but had LOTS of road noise. Semi trailers go up and down ALL night. Didn't affect my sleep too much but not great if you're a light sleeper.

"Long Car trip to Nirvana (Tenterfield Style) !!!"

andtic, Tamworth, Australia 19/04/2017

Stayed a night on the way back from the Gold Coast!!! Whilst the motel offered a restaurant we unfortunately didn't dine there. Our room was huge and was decked out spaciously!!! The bathroom had a spa (which I fully recommend for a good soak after a long car trip!!!) The shower had the most amazing pressure which along with a spa sent me into dreamland almost immediately!!!!

"perfectly located & very comfortable."

Fitzylady, Brisbane, Australia 16/04/2017

We stayed here for two nights recently and it was very comfortable. Whilst I was rather hot for the first night I heard a few heavy trucks but the bed was very comfortable and the lighting which is a priority for me, was very good. Far too many motels have tiny little bedside reading lamps that are useless. The second night I threw off the doona and slept like a log. Breakfast was very nice & the staff and service could not be faulted. The motel is in the centre of town and one can walk everywhere. We had dinner at their establishment on the first night and it was very nice also.The motel also offers free wifi which is an essential these days.

"The bath towels are huge!"

Thundergod_au, Sydney, Australia 10/04/2017

I had to drive from Brisbane to Sydney just after Cyclone Debbie and found myself having to travel via the inland route. I got as far as Tenterfield for the night and found The Henry Parkes. They only had two rooms left so I took the King Spa room which they offered at a reduced rate. The staff member that greeted and checked me in was pleasant and friendly. The room was very spacious. It had a kitchenette, lounge and of couse the king size bed. The bathroom was off the main room and it contained a vanity area as well as the spa/toilet space. There was also a full size washing machine and dryer behind another door off this space. In the morning I noticed there were some chairs outside the back sliding doors where you could sit in the fresh air with a morning coffee. The room itself was set in a block of about four at the rear of the property; far from the highway. It appeared a little dated but was clean and well kept. I would have no hesitation in staying there again.

"Clean and tidy Motel Tenterfield "

Partington1, Brisbane, Australia 25/02/2017

We stayed overnight at this motel in Tenterfield and were very happy with the cleanliness and comfort. Good location in the Main Street. Very friendly and helpful staff. Older style motel well maintained and managed. Family room is good for four.

"Very surprised"

cabapl, Brisbane, Australia 19/02/2017

Stayed only one night, room was very fresh and clean and spacious, comfy bed. Staff friendly and helpful. Dined in their restaurant and can highly recommend, outstanding food and cooked to perfection. Contintal breakfast is basic but okay

"Very nice motel"

timwilsonau, Sydney, Australia 15/01/2017

I stayed here for 1 night in January 2017. The motel rooms have been beautifully renovated. The room was very clean and well maintained. The highway noise was minimal. The bathroom has very nice toiletries provided as well as soft towels. I would happily stay here again.

"Quiet spot in spite of busy highway"

deejay17, Brisbane, Australia 11/01/2017

Our overnight stay was pleasant enough. The motel is sn easy walk from the CBD. The room was spacious and, wonder of wonders, had both a desk and a settee and room for moving around. Working light globes were in short supply with only 6 of a possible 12 working, but as some were spotlights there was suffficient light. The bathroom was large and water supply good. The only negative was lack of fresh milk or the offer of same. We did not use the restaurant.

"Watch The Pricing"

FloraDora2057, Moruya, Australia 26/11/2016

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"

batsami, Byron Bay 14/10/2016

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. "

Carolyn S, Dysart, Australia 14/10/2016

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"

User 26/09/2016

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.


BLong-93, Tenterfield, Australia 17/09/2016

"Poor Food"

lightyzaida, Brisbane, Australia 03/07/2016

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.

ManagerHenryParkes, General Manager at BEST WESTERN The Henry Parkes Tenterfield, responded to this review
Thank you for choosing our restaurant on what was an exceptionally busy evening. Having discussed your meals with you the following day, we am a little surprised as you did say it was only the one meal that you were not happy with. Had we ascertained that on the evening, we would most certainly have offered you an alternative. I do apologise that we were not on top of this that evening, and hope that should you and your family stay with us again we will be able to provide you with better service.

"Clean and comfortable but very ordinary accommodation..."

marilynp124, Sydney, Australia 20/06/2016

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 Overnight Stay"

AnnAlan22, Brisbane, Australia 10/05/2016

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.

"Very Poor Dining Experience"

Al W, Tamworth, Australia 09/04/2016

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

Thank you for taking the time to review our Motel and restaurant. We value all comments, and it would appear there may have been some confusion in regards to your order as we do not offer Eye Fillet on our menu, only Scotch Fillet, T-Bone and Porterhouse so apologise if there has been any confusion as they are very different cuts. The salmon was not cooked to your liking, but from this we have learned to ask guests how they would prefer it cooked. Again, thank you for your comments both on the evening, and again today.

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"

phantomhq, Sydney, Australia 23/02/2016

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.

ManagerHenryParkes, Manager at BEST WESTERN The Henry Parkes Tenterfield, responded to this review
Thank you for providing your feedback, as we value all comments. I am pleased to say the issue with the steaks was resolved as soon as we became aware of the situation - it was a particularly tough fillet that day, however we are pleased to advise we now plate some of the best beef that the New England region can supply and we would love to have you visit again soon.

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!

David R, Brisbane, Australia 08/02/2016

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"

User 30/12/2015

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.

"Best Western The Henry Parkes Tenterfield"

Elaine H, Brisbane, Australia 28/12/2015

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.

"great location"

Anne S, Maitland, Australia 16/07/2015

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.

"Great Motel"

mfo1901, Brisbane 09/07/2015

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!
