“Great place to stay”

My first stay and what a welcome surprise, the rooms are spotless and well appointed. The bed was huge and comfy, air con was very quiet. Every one of the staff i dealt with where friendly and courteous and the owner Danny was exceptionally friendly and genuinely interested in his quests.
Even more impressive was the follow up txt message making sure my stay was ok!! Thank goodness for good old fashion service!!!
Will look forward to my next stay and highly recommend

Room Tip: It is on a main road so trucks can be a bit noisy, try to stay towards the rear of the premises as m...

Being far away from home for work, it's always a plus to have nice accommodation. This is the second time I've stayed here and would highly recommend it to other travellers. It's modern, clean and the staff are friendly. Great breakfast and probably the place to stay in Parkes Shire.

Value for money and very neat, modern and tidy. Staff at reception were welcoming and great. Close enough to town you can walk in. Highway noise was there but not overwhelming. Did mention something about a balcony but that is just for access to upstairs rooms.

This motel is rated number 1 in Parkes on TripAdvisor for a reason. We stayed for one night on our travels. There is a wide range of times you can check in which, when being on the road, is so helpful. The rooms are large and modern. After reading a few reviews regarding the shower and water not draining quickly, we were prepared and lowered the water pressure we used which is a tip people wanting to stay there should employ. Used the room service facilities also; the meals were tasty and delivered in good time. We also found all of the staff incredibly friendly and helpful, and checking out was a breeze. Overall, very, very pleased and would stay again.

Thank you for this awesome review and the great comments about the staff and facility and meals, but most of all thanks for tip on the shower, this is such a help for both future travelers and the motel as well. We are going through room by room and fixing the issue and eventually it won't be an issue. Thank you so much and look forward to your return stay.

I had been going to this place over the last 2 years, and book in other employee there on behalf of the company. But I have notice that the meals are slow not the same over the last few months. I am not sure on the T-bone, steak, and morning sausages. Maybe you need to change suppliers. And the steak and T-bone in the last few visits I have made there, when asked for medium to well done, been well over done. To the point I will not order it there again. All in all Lucy what a great worker you guys have there. Just do something about the red meat other wise all good there. Great stay.

Thank you for this great feedback, it is the regulars like yourself that can make the most difference as you are seeing things more often and can give us a more accurate feedback of the day to day running of the property. Chef and I have had a chat to the butcher about this since reading the feedback as the sausages are his award winning Bratwurst sausages and between the 3 of us have decided to state that on the breaky form, so people have the choice to not choose them. As for the cooking of the T-bone, please give us another try this week and I am sure we will get it right.
Se you on Monday and thank you as always for staying with us and for the great comments on Lucy.

Driving some 12 hours we arrived exhausted and in need of a rest. We checked in at the pre booked Station Motel at Parkes to be greeted by the very welcoming Paul and the friendly cat Midnight waiting at the door. We found our room to be modern and very well appointed turning the a/c up to get some warmth. Sadly the Restaurant was closed as the staff were not available  but Chef said he could do room service disappointing as the Restaurant was one of the decision points used to select this Motel. I would add I don’t do room service when I travel I can’t stand the lingering smell of food in the room, fortunately we able to sit in the bar area and enjoy a delightful bottle of Wirra Wirra Church Block by the fire and chat with chef which was enjoyable. We could have gone another bottle but no common sense prevailed and off to bed we went. The décor was modern and the room well appointed, the beds extremely comfortable. Awake early to hit the road again I boiled the kettle for a coffee only to find some strange unpalatable granules in a sachet (Yuk) If motels provide instant coffee there is seriously only one brand for mine it has 43 beans in every cup! No value in cutting corners with coffee. The bathroom was well appointed with a large walk in shower take care where you place the bathmat and how hard you turn on the shower as the fall to the drain is not that steep. I like the concept of wall mounted shampoo, conditioner etc. for environmental benefits it affords but I do struggle with the shower gel concept, a creature of habit perhaps and I travel with the remnants of previous hotel stays.
If you like a morning coffee bring your own, if you can’t stand the wall mount pump packs bring your own.
Would I stay here again yes indeed, the service was friendly fast, the rooms warm and accommodating and the pre and post stay communicating is without peer.

Thank you for an extremely detailed review, You have given us things we can look into and the feedback on the coffee in the room is very important as we specially get that in and it is not a cost saver by any notion. Next time you stay with us, please make time to go through these things with me and always ask our reception if you need a soap as we have them if required. Thank you again for your time taken in doing this report.

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
