I stayed here on my way home from southern NSW. I had stayed here many years ago and remembered it as a clean and comfortable place. It was still just that. Got a very good nights sleep on the bed and found the location quite convenient.

The staff were friendly on arrival. The room was quite sizable and clean. Parking was a breeze and the wifi was very strong which is not always the case with other accommodation. A very short drive from the motel into the city centre. All in all a pleasant motel.

Very impressed with the White Lantern Motel. Very well priced for a good sized room that was well appointed, clean, quiet and comfortable. The shower was great with lots of hot water. The people were friendly and welcoming. Plenty of easy parking. The motel was only a short drive to a good range of restaurants, shopping center and the street...

Sorry to hear about your experience with us. My manager and myself personally inspected your room and could not smell anything like smoke as all our rooms are non smoking. If anything it was like any room locked up on a hot day, which effects everyone even at home. We did notice a guest a few rooms down was a...

A nice little motel 10min walk to the Wicklow hotel and center Armidale. Friendly Staff, free wifi and clean rooms. Rooms a little aged, but all good. Quiet, just off main Rd. Would stay again, even had DVD to watch

The room was very presentable and for a couple of weary motorcycle riders it was welcome sight with a nice quiet room. It allowed us to have a good nights sleep. The motel is just a short hop to town centre, about 2-3 minutes giving access to eateries and shopping

Stayed for one night and found the staff very friendly and helpful especially the man at the front desk. I didn't catch his name but he was American I think. Very courteous and explained everything clearly. The room was generously large and well furnished. Very well maintained and clean. Will definitely stay again.

As this motel is above the township in winter, it was a lot warmer than down below. It was nice to see the ice in the morning :-) Our room was of a good size with a microwave and a bar refrigerator. The bathroom is a good size with good shower. You do need to bring your own tea/coffee etc...
