Best Western The Henry Parkes Tenterfield

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

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.

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!!!!

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

I stayed here with my two children whilst travelling to Tamworth and I couldn't have been happier with my stay. We arrived in Tenterfield quite late in the evening and I was worried we had missed reception hours, no sooner had I thought about it before the young lady at reception, I think her name was Jessica, was calling me to let me know they were keeping open for my arrival. Once we got there it was a quick check in process before we were in our comfortable and clean room. In the morning we went up for breakfast about 30 minutes before it ended (usually other hotels are packing up and not keen to reopen service for three people) and we were warmly greeted by Jessica again and shown through to a beautiful dining room. The Chef came and greeted us also and took our custom orders, the food was delivered hot and fresh shortly after and it was just wonderful. My son was raving about the pancakes, and the friendly chef made us feel welcome instead of an imposition for arriving so late. All round wonderful experience, best service I have received in a long time and a really comfortable stay for the few dollars it cost. Best value you will find.
