Arrived without a booking in inclement weather, and was greeted warmly, given a good price on the room, was given advice on eating options, and even offered use of an umbrella to walk to nearby eateries. Location wise, there is a supermarket, bowling club, several eateries and a bar within a couple of minutes walk. On the downside, there is... More

My wife and I consider this motel to be one of the most comfortable motels of the many we have stayed in over recent years. The owner/ proprietor was very welcoming and helpful and the room she provided had many small touches which made our brief stay most satisfactory. The motel is well located in the heart of town but... More

We stayed here because of the reviews and we were not disappointed.  The rooms are very comfortable, clean and well maintained. Everything works and there were lots of little extras in the room that you don’t usually get in country motels.  Very happy to recommend and will definitely be staying here again next time we’re passing through.

I choose this motel based on it's rating and positive reviews but was very disappointed in the accommodation, the sofa had no support and was a struggle to get up from but mainly the bed was very hard and uncomfortable giving both of us a sleepless night, tossing and turning, just trying to get comfortable and ease the pain in...

More expensive than anywhere else we had stayed on our road trip. Room was large but bathroom only average- shower head poor (we did report this to the manager). Microwave, kettle and toaster but no bread and butter plates- weird. Air con really struggled- lucky it was only 35 degrees. Nice but jaded. Quiet and clean.

An extremely quiet motel even though it is centrally located near to the CBD. Rooms were spotless and the beds were very comfortable. Air conditioning helped to maintain the room to a pleasant temperature, allowing a good night's rest. Interesting to note that the room had a bath, which would be an added bonus for travellers with small children. Also... More

Clean room with ensuite and assorted soap etc, comfortable bed. Very convenient to walk into Armidale for evening meal or across the road to a large bowling club. Comfortable sofa, table and chairs should you wish to eat in. Value for money motel room. We chose to eat at The New England Brasserie. Excellent

Well located accommodation. The rooms are very 80s but everything worked. A previous reviewer complained about electricity conservation but you just needed to turn an extra two switches on. Heater worked well(which you need in armidale). Front desk helpful and the parking was off street.

We recently stayed for three nights. The room was clean, warm and comfortable and ticked all the boxes. We have stayed elsewhere previously, however Sandstock is now our choice for visits to Armidale.
