“Perfection”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

We stayed here on July 13 2014. From the minute we pulled up in the car Park to the guest relations who meet us at the door, this was the cat called midnight we felt relaxed. Midnight even followed us to our room and was very helpful. The reception staff Paul and Lucy who took my initial call were very professional. The room The room was tastefully decorated and modern in design. Shower was very spacious as was the bathroom. We were worried about the noise as the motel is on the main road but did not hear much as all. In the morning we took our time and when we were ready to leave made our way to reception. Danny was cheerful and wished us a safe trip. We will definately be back.

Good to see the PR Manager (Midnight the cat) is doing her job of welcoming the guests. You are definitely a people person to remember everyone's names. We look forward to the next time you can stay with us, so we can have another good laugh. Thank you

We spent 2 nights at the Station Motel from the 9th July 2014. I am glad we chose to stay here because the rooms were modern, clean and quiet. We had breakfast brought to our room by a lovely chef with a beaming smile. The breakfast was just great and well presented. We would not stay anywhere else if we were to go back to Parkes.

Room Tip: We were on the top floor and the air conditioner in our rom was silent when running. I would imagin...

We were away during your stay, so it is so important that our Relief Manager ( Breaky deliverer) continued what we cherish most and that is to make the guest stay enjoyable as well as comfortable. Thank you

I found the staff to be very accommodating with any requests. I arrived early and needed to check in so I could get to a job. Danny found us a room and allowed us to get checked in. We were also able to check out late which as a great help as the job I was on ran late.

The room was very clean. However, the bed was a little hard for my liking.

I would suggest that the owners look at their pricing of the meals. We found the cost a little off putting and we were, unfortunately, swayed by some negative reviews. We went into town to buy dinner. I say unfortunate because the cooked breakfast was sensational and if the dinner meals were of the same quality then we missed out badly.

I would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: I would recommend light sleepers request rooms toward the back of the motel or use earplugs due to t...

Thank you for your comments and the positive feedback as well. We are testing a new mattress top for the beds and when we are satisfied that this is the solution, we will roll out the replacement plan. We are proud of our restaurant and the fact that we only use the best products from local suppliers. We work with our local town and this is why you might find it more expensive than you see at other motels. Next time try the restaurant and you will understand where the value actually is. Thank you

As a frequent traveller, I've found this Motel to be of great value and the staff are friendly and committed to customer service.
The meals are excellent and the chef is very keen to please.
Will return soon.

I cannot speak highly enough of this motel. I found it on TripAdvisor and from the minute I booked I just knew it would be fantastic. Easy booking system, sms a few days before confirming our booking and welcoming us to the motel. Danny the owner was fabulous and friendly. The rooms were spectacular.. I would have assumed they were five star. Clean, comfortable, king beds, modern and everything you could ask for and more. Danny even gave the WIFI password upon booking, something I find other motels do not do. Most you have to bribe the password out of them. DVD player, free bottles of water, microwave, electric blankets and fantastic heating. Little area to sit outside, big spacious room and gorgeous modern bathroom. The restaurant on site was a blessing also and again nothing was too hard for Danny. Two kids and myself fed quickly and easy, and affordable. Fantastic restaurant atmosphere and the food, well lets just say my son wanted their chicken pasta the next night. Too bad we were 600km away. Had nothing like it before, and probably won't find anything close to it. SMS a day after we left to thank us for staying.. You would think this would come at great expense but it couldn't be further from the truth.. The motel was cheaper then some others I stayed at on our trip that were not even half as good as this place. Thank you Danny for a great stay.. your personal touches are what make you so successful.. I will be telling all I know about your motel, and I hope that we get to visit Parkes sooner then later, because I know where I will be coming back too.

Room Tip: Any room is great. :)

Stayed travelling from Adelaide to Brisbane for the second time. This motel has had a refurb and is well maintained and very clean. First time we stayed we had no issues, all good including the bed so assumed all would be good this time. However the beds, there were three of us, were very uncomfortable. Way too hard, the single bed in particular...unexpectedly very disappointing. Clearly the beds differ from room to room so we will unfortunately not be back unless the beds are upgraded. I have still rated this motel with four stars as they deserve it in other areas...just not this time with the beds!

I want to thank you for taking the time to reply. All I can say is that we have not changed the beds since taking over and all the beds are exactly the same throughout the property and I have looked up your room and will be checking the beds to make sure they are up to standard. I do appreciate your honesty and hope we can make sure the beds are right for the next guest. Thank you
