Recent guest reviews

Beds extra comfy, rooms extra clean and well serviced each day, staff and management delightful. Grounds and manor building heritage-cozy and beautiful. Location and relative proximity to town centre (close but not too close) couldn’t be better either. Thanks for a wonderful stay and true hospitality, John and team.

We booked direct through the Best Western website but the hotel did not have our booking. They did organise a room so no drama. On arrival the room smelt a bit stuffy, maybe a bit like someone had smoked in the room, we fired up the air conditioning which removed the odour pretty well. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean but a little tired - more so in the bathroom. The service was quite good. Our room was well away from the road so was quiet - not sure if you were closer to the road. We did not read the advice properly and turned up for breakfast at 0905 to find out it had finished 5 minutes before and thus was unavailable. We had to go into town for breakfast.

Good beds, clean room, bright well equipped bathroom and all units ground level. Well cooked and presented food in a first class restaurant. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Close to centre of town but quiet at night.

I was lucky to secure the last remaining room for the night and it was a pleasant room and very clean with a comfortable bed The restaurant is in the old refurbished original dwelling house and is a superbly decorated room; the dinner was delicious with good service

Clean, spacious room with everything we needed. We were in a standard double. The breakfast was good (we chose the cold buffet but hot food was on offer and looked great). The staff were friendly and accommodated a late night arrival with no issues. A motel set up (which seems the local standard) which is excellently situated for the town at a short walk and a short drive to the university. Recommended.

Took a workmate here for a few nights we both agreed it was quiet with comfortable beds and hot water in an instant. All staff were friendly with very good breakfast and exceptional evening meals. I thoroughly recommend staying here.

Lovely grounds with comfortable rooms with nice sitting areas. We had a King Bed with two comfortable overstuffed chairs as well as a desk area with two chairs. Extremely quiet room with nice furnishings. The room we had wasn't huge but it was very adequate size. Front desk was friendly and welcoming. Helped us figure out the AC which was very effective once we got the controls straight.

Stayed 2 nights on way up north. Room was good value, very clean. Decor bit boring but good quality bed linen and fluffy newish towels. Bed comfortable so had a good night's sleep other than some road noise in morning. Bathroom bit chilly at -1 no heating. Breakfast available on site which was very convenient. Good quality continental and delicious hot offerings.

Situated in the centre of Armidale, this historic building and gardens was a delight to experience. The owners are friendly and hospitable and the rooms comfortable. I had the best nights sleep in days when I stopped there. There is a restaurant on site, with a wine bar, lounge and pool room complete with log fire. The food was amazing and made the whole experience just about perfect. Highly recommended.

Arriving at Best Western Cotswold Gardens on a cold afternoon, the warm welcome we received was appreciated. The room was clean and warm, the bar convivial and the restaurant inviting. All up, a great place to rest on the long trip from Brisbane via Tamworth to the snowfields down south.
