“Great for a Stopover”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

We stayed there for one night on our way home. It was on the New England Highway southern side go Glen Innes. It was classed as a budget hotel, but it was really nice. It was really cold when we arrived but the room was really warm. The air conditioner never went off at 10pm for us. We also had an electric blanket on the bed and we were very grateful . The room was a good size , the TV was small but ok. You could make tea and coffee. Breakfast was supplied, cereal and bread for toast was bought over to our room. We also ordered dinner in our room as we did't want to go back outside. The meals are homemade by the owner and were served to our room really hot. We were able to park our car outside of the room and there was no noise. Everything was very clean. I'd stay there again it has everything we needed and the price was well worth it.

Yes this is a budget motel but the first time for me in a budget motel where the air conditiong/heating is automatically turned off at 10pm and switched back on at 7am. Glenn Innes can get very cold at night. The ancient TV had an orange picture and limited channels. Home cooked meals are boasted so I tried the breakfast,which was no better than McDonalds. Check-out is at 9am and if you are not out of the room and in reception on the dot of 9 the not at all friendly owner comes-a-knockin! No wonder if's called Jillaroo, it felt like a shearing shed.

I stayed at this Motel for four nights in a very comfortable room at a very reasonable price. The room was of a high standard and spacious and although the Motel is on the New England Highway, the noise of the trucks was hardly noticeable and did not wake me up during the night at all.
Some of the taps in the adjoining rooms and in my room could do with new washers as the screech in the morning was better than any alarm clock.
Free breakfast is included and consists of a choice of cereal and milk and a slice of bread with butter and a topping.
A wide variety of home cooked meals are on offer for dinner and at the time of my stay were all priced at $12, with dessert at $5. I had a meal on my first night and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Free internet is available but as I was in one of the back rooms away from reception, I had to sit near the door to get a constant signal. It also went off at around 9:30 p.m. The TV reception for the ABC channels was very broken and unwatchable.
But all in all a good place to stay.

Room Tip: I always like this bit of a review, like you ever have any real choice or asked for your preference...

We stayed in 2 rooms as a family of 5 people. No large rooms were available, but the managers were very helpful in accommodating us. Both rooms were clean, average size, and the lovely gardens added a nice touch. Good for an overnight stop.
