The Royal Hotel has a very different external appearance nearly looking like some building out of the Middle East. Inside it is very Australiana with a lovely outback atmosphere. The staff were friendly and the beer cold and very cheap. We haven't had a schooner of Coopers Pale Ale for $4 for years.

Don't be fooled by the hotel exterior. The motel units at the back are brand new, well presented and very comfortable. As usual with motel accommodation, parking is outside the door. We found the owners to be very pleasant and helpful - I suggested hairdryers would be a useful addition to the bathroom and was told they were planned. Some...

Very recently refurbished motel rooms behind the hotel are excellent value for money. We paid $95 for a queen bed on a Saturday night with undercover parking. Small rooms but so clean and comfortable. Tenterfield Saddler building/museum is opposite the pub. No meals at pub at the moment. Went to Bowls Club for decent club meal. Plenty of options nearby...

Arrived on Saturday afternoon with 5 others. We were booked in advance. Were informed that the Chef had walked out and there would be no meal. We now understand why the "Chef" walked out. Very Rude owners and very unaccommodating. Room was clean and comfortable. Purchased a carton of beer from the Hotel and went to dinner along the road...

My son and I stayed a night here. The room was basic which was expected. The bed were very comfortable. Heater provided and beds were warm. Could not hear noise from hotel patrons despite it being a busy night. One of the better pub meals that I have enjoyed.

Booked a room in hotel and on arrival was told the motel rooms at the back were better - extra $15 - took the motel room. It was freezing cold, it was cold outside anyway but there were big gaps everywhere and a only tiny blow heater. Double bed and a single, it was so cold I ended up with...

Stayed at this Hotel Motel as we were there for a party and convenient. Rooms up stairs very basic but my room was comfy. Got to share the toilet and shower with other rooms but for $30 a night what do you expect. There is a Motel out there back that has own ensuite. They do have food there not...

Not sure where to start. We had entree and main, and 1 dessert. The entrees were very large serves - probably a little too generous in size but they were tasty - lamb meatballs and calamari. We both had Rump steak with vegetables - they had run out of rib fillet ( our preferred option). They had run out of...

The new owners are very nice and are in renovation mode, Pub/Resturent is looking good - Accom is still in the reno stage but they have set their pricing to allow for this. Clean and tidy rooms but a few electrical things don't work. Im sure as the work there way through that will change. Happy hour or girls cocktails...

I picked up a $30 deal on another booking site. I'm glad I did! The Royal is a typical old pub, with rooms dating back decades. But don't let that dissuade you. My room was very clean, although the sink was showing its age, with a fair bit of rust. The bed is comfortable, with spotlessly fresh linen and plenty...
