“Gets everything right”
Reviewed 16 December 2013 via mobile

This is a really comfortable, welcoming motel for those breaking up a long drive. The rooms are very clean; the bed is really comfortable, with great linen and comfy pillows; the shower pressure is excellent; there's a reasonably-sized TV/DVD with good reception; and the owner/manager is very friendly.

Sure, there are no frills, but this is a motel, and this one ticks all the right boxes.

We stopped at this motel after reading other travellers recommendations on Trip Advisor. Whilst the motel is dated the rooms are very clean and comfortable. Given that is on the main road we found noise to be minimal. Would certainly recommend this motel.

Booked on Wotif a 'Pillow Top Queen' room accidentaly, meant just to book a standard room.Anyhow,I thought, $16 extra for a bit of luxury. When I checked in,was told it was for a standard room,the extra $16 was for having another person in the room apart from me! I actually have never found this pricing system before.

Room was a bit tight,air con made such an annoying sound that we actually turned it off,only to hear the next rooms air con making the same sound.

To top it off my wife complained to me the next morning that she thought the bed was worn and sagged in the middle.(to keep the peace I did not tell her of the 'Pillow Top' story)
Average room,dissapointed on the pricing regime.Loses points for that.

peter w, Owner at Anna Bella Motel, responded to this review, 31 July 2015
Dear Guest, we try to do our bests, we think this shows in almost all reviews.
You booked at Booking.com. a Standard room, not a Deluxe Queen room.
The price for a Standard room for 1 person is lower than the price for the same room for 2 persons.
The difference in price for 1 person or 2 persons is very common in Australian motels.
There never needs any confusing, the Booking.com booking site asks to fill out if you are with 1 or 2 persons.
Sorry its simple if you fill out 1 person,( I assume by mistake) & come with 2 persons we charge for 2 persons.
Hopefully you understand & we still hope we see you back.

Dina and Peter took over this hotel some 9 months ago so any bad reviews would be from the previous owners. Their hospitality was very welcoming and their rooms are very reasonable priced, bed had beautiful linen and was incredibly comfy. Really for the price this motel is good value. Everything was clean and well presented. Go on give Dina and Peter a go - you won't be disappointed

Even though it is conveniently located on the main highway it was very quiet. The room was clean and comfortable with a fridge toaster and jug. The staff were friendly and helpful. We only stayed for one night, but Glen Innes is an attractive town well worth a visit.

A very quiet, comfortable motel with very friendly and helpful owners. Our twin room was very clean, well equipped and the beds were some of the most comfortable we have come across in our travels. Close to town and restaurants although they will provide dinner to the room. Breakfast was excellent and a good start to the day.
We would thoroughly recommend this motel which will soon be changing its name to Anna Bella
