First time I have ever seen bathrobes in a motel - what a lovely touch! Comfy bed and beautiful classy linen. Black and white colour scheme felt new and fresh. Best of all, a great shower - plenty of water pressure and hot, hot water. Thick, generous towels on a heated towel rail.
Great riverside walk out the back to generate an appetite for a generous serve of lamb for dinner.

Hi VeroniqueM68
WOW, what a review, it seems like we are doing the right things since taking over last November.
As you guessed, all the bed linens, pillows shower screens and vanities are new throughout the Motel. We also love being able to provide some of the little luxuries like the bathrobes and plunger coffee.
We believe that our Motel must provide a great sleep, and a nice bathroom to make our guests feel at home and we just love serving great meals as well.
Thank you again for the great review and we look forward to seeing you next time you visit Inverell.

Cousins new owners have made this a great place to stay. Friendly, rooms are very clean and have the little touches that are disappearing from other motels, car window washers, shoe polish stations and in a great location, a short walk from the centre of Inverell and just across the road from the great Inverell memorial to the local families.
Inverell, the friendliest country town of NSW.

Hi Stephen,
We are so happy that you feel the way you do about Cousins Motor Inn and Inverell, the Crew here have worked hard here to present the Motel the way it is now and you can be assured we haven't finished yet.
What you say about the Memorial in the park across the road from us is true, we think every visitor to Inverell show take a few minutes and have a look at the names and dates mentioned, there are a lot of stories to be told about the Pioneers of this wonderful town.
Thank you once again and we look forward to seeing you next time you visit Inverell
Cheers

An excellent place to stay in Inverell. The friendly and helpful staff make you feel at home. The rooms are well appointed and feel new. The price is very good, as is the locations just down the main street. I genuinely recommend 'Cousins' in Inverell.

Dennis and Pam make you feel very welcome form the moment your arrive. They have recently refurbished the motel and have added many special touches, that make this motel better than all of the others I have stayed in in Inverell. For example, heated towel rails, electric blankets, robes, mints and a great range of refreshements. However, the best part was the comfy bed and pillows, making for a great nights sleep. Breakfast was also lovely. Will definitely be back ~ thank you!

Just tripping around NSW, called in at Inverell for a bit of nostalgia, and found the best motel of the trip.
Great owners, best bed, an obviously well-kept room and excellent food
We will be travelling the Gwyder and Thunderbolts way again, with Cousins a definite pit-stop

Room Tip: Rooms 1 to 6 will probably have less road noise

My wife and I had been travelling by motorbike for a week and we were really surprised when we walked into our room. Everything was fresh looking, there was an air of knowledge about it that said YES WE HAVE TRAVELED AND WE THINK WE HAVE COVERED ALL YOUR NEEDS.
Not just a room but a pleasant experience to arrive and find everything at your fingertips but also the warm honest greeting from genuine managers that just want you to feel special, and willing to make you feel that nothing is a problem
Also great meals,excellent bed and surprisingly BATH ROBES!
Lots of higher priced places could take a good look at this great motel and see what it's like to show GUESTS that they are truly WELCOME.

Hi Dave,N,Marg,
Thank you for your kind review, we took over the ownership of Cousins Motor Inn last November and we have spent a lot of time and effort into bringing the Motel up to standard. To read your comments makes us feel as if we are achieving our goals, we still have a lot more we want to do and I'm sure you will find even more improvements next time you visit.

My wife and I spent 45% of our nights away from home last year and obviously stayed at a lot of motels in that time. Cousins would have to be the best of them, bar none.
The Cousins experience starts with Kathleen who can't seem to do enough for you, and that includes cooking the delicious meals which are delivered to your room. ( No restaurant on site).
We had a deluxe room. Rarely do you find rooms so clean and tidy as the one we had.
We found the bed to be most comfortable, electric blankets plus a very efficient air conditioner, big fluffy white towels on a heated towel rack and bath robes all supplied at a tariff no more than you would pay for lesser accommodation elsewhere.
A great place to base yourself both for business and leisure purposes.

Room Tip: Just tell Kathleen what you need and she will do her utmost to assist you.
