Tenterfield NSW, Australia
Formerly the' Comfort Inn Henry Parkes'
Well we chose this Motel as it was written up by V T member iandsmith and we are not disappointed. The name has changed and so have the owners but they are very friendly ...the food is still good in the dining room and the garden is still growing...but the new owner is not a gardener.
They took note that we had come from a VT write up.
Our room is large and well appointed. The bed is comfortable...there are tea making facilities.
Well I must say the food was very pleasing...it was NOT 'greasy spoon' by any means. Specials were available but we chose Atlantic salmon with asian greens and potato mash.
The tables were set with a tablecloth and there was a nice sitting area. We rarely eat at motels around the place as the offerings are not always to our fancy.
Really good is the offer of coffee and cakes available all day....well the motel was booked out so they must be doing something right.
There is an iron..a hair dryer and something I find unusal in the motels we use.... a laundry and ironing service
AND THE MOTEL IS STILL PINK!
This stately mansion was built in 1888 for John Holmes Reid who made his wealth mining for tin.
Once used as a camp hospital during the Second World War it also has an historic bunyah pine at the rear.
These days it serves as a lovely B&B for those wish to add a touch of class to their vacation.
Good motel, the best I've stayed at in the town. Food is good, as is the service in the restaurant.
All units are ground floor though some are higher than others as the block slopes.
What can you say about this motel. It's pink for a start. In fact, it's other name is "The Pink Place". Now, Ed and Sandra have owned the place for years and Ed is a legend. When business is slow he has touted for business out on the street, a fact that didn't endear him to some of the locals, obviously unaccustomed to travelling in eastern countries!
Ed is a character and, should you call in, you will often find him working in the garden. Though Ed gives the appearance of running everything, he always defers to Sandra should the occasion arise.
