“Lovely people, good location and quality”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

Spacious, immaculately clean and comfortable rooms. Great location and proximity to the Longyard Hotel which has great meals. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and nothing says welcome like being offered fresh milk for a cuppa and a free beer, wine or soft drink. I can see why it is no.1 on Trip Advisor for Tamworth

Thanks for the great review, there is nothing better than having fresh milk for your tea or coffee. We do like to give our weary customers a nice complimentary drink on arrival to unwind with. It was great that you enjoyed your stay with us, see you again soon.
cheers

I have stayed at the golden guitar a few times and each time I do I remember why I dont like it and then I stay somewhere else and remember the things I like and go back and the then the same thing happens again.
The things that bring me back:
The staff are So welcoming and its like seing old frends each time realy nice welcoming friends who offer you a complimentary beer or wine on arrival , this always goes down a treat.
Lots of restaurants all around including Mcdonalds and great steak options within a few metres from your door.
room service breakfacst although average is still a nice option to have.
Great shower pressure.
A really good size TV placed in a great spot for easy TV watching from the bed.
Pretty good room layout and quite spacious.
the cleanning fluid they use isnt as bad as a lot of other motels and did air out after a few hours.
Did I say the staff??? yes I did!
Mmm what else???...

The things I dont like.
Microwave and kitchenette without any plates or cutlery..annoying
Only 1 powerpoint in bathroom.. annoying
rooms are fairly old and tired and bland and boring.
frustrating that the airconditioner is possitioned at the side of the bed so that the air hits you if you are in bed so you have to switch it off.
Annoying that cars are encouraged to park anywhere so you never get a park in front of your room.
Biggest hate no 1, last time I stayed there It took me a week to get over a sore back from the bad matress, but when I stay there I remember how much I dislike the poor quality or old matresses, leading to little or poior sleep.
Hate No 2, The old granny blankets which you know dont get washed often and look a bit scary and Im not sure if the multi colours on them make me feel better that I cant reallty see the stains or freek me out a little knowing that not all the blotches are meant to be there.
Plus its cold during the night and the air conditioner is hard to leave on and the other blanket alternatives feel a bit dusty.
I usually prefer to stay in motels with white linen and quilts without the granny blankets.

So I know that next time I wont stay there because I can still feel a sore back and know that the convenient location and lovely country staff will draw me back again in the future.

Room Tip: up stairs probably if you can stand carrying your luggage up, becasue you have access to the balcon...

This is the second time we have stayed at the Golden Guitar in 4yrs. On both occasions, the Managers were absolutely lovely and do all in their power to ensure that you are comfy and stress free. It is always clean, comfortable and a lovely meal next door at The Longyard Hotel. I love the towels in the bathroom - they are lovely and soft, just like home. I would highly recommend this motel for anyone. We had our 2 young children with us and my elderly mother, so we were given interconnecting rooms which was great.

We had an upstairs room facing the highway for one night , room was spacious and well set up comfortable bed. Breakfast was good and the adjacent hotel was excellent for dinner. Staff are friendly and helpful. However sleep was affected by noise. The sound proofing is not great and sleep was disturbed by the loud dripping noise from the outdoor drainpipe when it rained. Traffic noise was quite audible and the next door spa bath / plumbing was also intrusive.

Room Tip: Don't face the road and avoid being next door to a spa room.

Very clean and very spacious room... we were updated to a spa unit as we are in the hotel industry..room was exceptionally clean, modern and well appointed. Right next door to the Golden Guitar, and the Longyard hotel for dinner at the back gate! Rception Managers were friendly and knowledgable about the area. We were given a free soft drink or beer on arrival as a "thank you for booking with us". Very nice after a long drive! Would definatley stay here again on our next visit! oh and the brekkie was great too!!

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have a long balcony with great mountain views

26th May we arrived at Tamworth after a hazardous trip via the Oxley highway from port Macquarie, called at the Touriist info center in Tamworth looking for a motel and somewhere we could get great food without having to drive..
Tourist rang the Golden Guitar motel for us and a few minutes later we arrived! What a nice welcome, a glass of wine and a beer for hubby!!! After a long drive,so nice!
The room was very spacious,,large bathroom,beds very comfortable. Also quiet at night that is a big bonus near a highway!
next door at the Longyard hotel was the best food ever..

Room Tip: No tips needed service was wonderful!
