This is a long established motel. Never the less it had all the requirements for a comfortable stay. Room is somewhat small but adequate. Fully equipped. Owner operated. Friendly and warmly welcomed on arrival. Located on the busy New England Highway noise was not a problem. Quite happy to stay there again.

Clean and comfortable and close to Maitland sports club (photos are of the sports club NOT the motel). Pleasant husband and wife team are your hosts. Walls are made of the finest quality rice paper (or similar) and have all the acoustic properties of fly screen.

My sister and I stayed here in April for one night, when we were in town for a family event. We had one of the rooms in the front facing the highway. It is a cute little motel, rooms very small but immaculate. I could not fault the cleanliness of this motel, I was so pleased with having a shower... More

Just one night while going from A to B. Comfortable bed & decent shower. Club is very convenient for dinner. Bit on the noisy side but we are not used to highway traffic. Friendly and helpful reception staff.A bit more storage/shelving in the bathroom would have made life easier but for one night it is not a problem.

Probably the best stay in the Newcastle area ! Rose and Dave run a very clean and comfortable establishment and over the many years we have been regularly staying there (18 years), the improvements they have made are great ! We have stayed in different rooms throughout the motel and each one is very accommodating, little extras like the shampoo... More

Stayed one night in February, room clean, cable tv, all the things you'd expect in a mid range country motel. Walking distance to bowling club where the food was above average for a bowing club. Couple of minor issues, lumpy and hard bed. Rooms facing the highway could do with more sound insulation. I'd stay there again but ask for... More

Booked this room for one night on Wotif as alternative to accommodation in Singleton as it was totally booked out. Paid $90 for the night for standard room but was upgraded to the sparoom as the hotel was full of miner workers. Even though the hotel was full to capacity and situated on the New England Highway it was surprisingly... More
