“Are you sure this isn’t a 5 star hotel?”

Reviewed yesterday on Trip Advisor

This place is about 5km out of Tamworth on the Armidale road.
Apparently it’s been renovated in the last year, and it shows.
Our twin room had ample space for our sporting gear and bikes, as well as a king bed and a single bed. Huge TV, nice bathroom with plenty of hot water. The airconditioning was fast to heat up the room in the Tamworth winter.
The staff were friendly and helpful. The place super clean.
The fitout and decor of our room wouldn’t have been out of place in a top Sydney hotel. Definitely coming back when next up here.
We stayed in in room 4, at the front. Road noise was not an issue at all.

Room Tip: the rooms at the front are fine. No road noise was noticable

  • Stayed August 2015, travelled with family

We stayed overnight at McNevin's Tamworth when we were touring NSW with some overseas visitors and it is a great motel. The beds are very comfortable (the room we had was one double and a single) very clean and lovely linens. Most importantly there was a really friendly welcome, this just makes such a difference.”

“We booked last minute while we were on the road, we arrived late but Ian welcomed us with a big friendly smile, a bottle of milk for our tea and he upgraded us to a king suite. What a lovely place, clean and cosy (it was cold outside). We were so happy to get into our room and have a hot shower. Highly recommend this place!”

“Motel has been refurbished. Rooms are excellent and staff are very friendly. We dined in the restaurant and the food was very good and reasonably priced. It is on the highway so noise could be an issue but we asked for a room away from the open entrance to the property and were given Room 1 (protected by the restaurant building which fronts the highway). We had no noise problem there. Bed was great and king pillows were divine.”


“I wish to express my gratitude & thanks for the wonderful venue and accommodation that you provided for our National Australia Bank conference 18 to 21 October. Our host Brian & Karen were first class and went above and beyond to ensure our conference ran smoothly. Feedback from the team around the accommodation and the food provided was terrific and the conference room venue was exactly what we were after.

Overall a terrific experience in your business and on behalf of NAB I wish to thank you.

“My husband and I stayed here after a big day of travelling. Only had the suite available and it was perfect. Rooms massive, bed even bigger (king size) and the shower pressure was amazing.
The lady at reception was wonderful, asked her about super markets close by as I had forgotten my toothbrush. She gave me a new double pack of toothbrushes and toothpaste to save me driving to the super market (we were in a huge removalists trucks).

Will stay here if ever in Warwick again, in fact would alter my trip to sleep in that bed again.

“Thank you very much Kate and Dave on behalf of 1200Kms For Kids... You guys are simply amazing... The upfront booking service, the follow up, the accommodation - superb (everyone is still talking about it), the friendliness... Nothing was too much trouble... Our early breakfast request for 40 people... You guys were wonderful... Thank you again and we can't wait to come again next year for our 1200Kms For Kids Charity Bike Ride travelling this time from Brisbane to Sydney :-)”


“Phoned for directions, being from WA and travelling in a road train truck, arrived, ordered dinner, hit the sack. Phone directions was easy to follow, the wait staff were awesome, the food was awesome and the pricing was spot on. The room, a standard one, was clean, the bed was perfect, hot water pressure drilled your skin to wipe away the miles on the road. Slept like a log. The next day we needed to print, scan and email some docs, the manageress could not do enough to get this done for us. We tried to rent a car locally, no answer at Hertz so the manageress offered us her car! Amazing service. Declined but was impressed by her offer. Dinner tonite was again spot on, esp the waitress tonite remembered what we drank and her service was 10 outa 10. We are here for 4 more days and are very impressed.”

“Recently booked 3 rooms at this motel with and was so surprised with the size of all the rooms and the novelty of having a back door in each room. I made a mistake with my online booking so phoned and spoke to Kim who was so helpful with the changes I required. Our bed was very comfortable and the shower large and water ample and hot. We had a table with room for 4 chairs plus the lounge chair. Our car was undercover (another bonus).
We dined at the Sails Restaurant and food was perfect but that will be another review. Breakfast was catered for either with room service or dining in the Glasshouse near the pool. Again food was excellent. Cannot fault the motel and will try another McNevins motel and will, if we have the chance, definitely stay here again.”
