Armidale has a lot of motels because of the uni, overnighting on the way to somewhere else and local intetezts. Some of them are multi room establishments. Some of them, like Sandstock are smaller. Most of them are your standard set up and not good value for money. Not this place. We were telephoned to make sure all was well... More

The Sandstock is under new management and the new managers/staff are lovely people. The rooms, although starting to show some wear and tear, are very clean and cosy. The beds are comfy and the breakfast menu is simple but adequate. My bacon and eggs were great and plentiful. I travel to Armidale on business fairly regularly and will return to... More

This is just the best, for location, décor, attention to detail , and all the little extras plus the personal touch and friendliness of the owner/manageress. The thoughtfulness even extended to allocating a room next to the one required for a step through shower - with the bed facing the way (for a picky traveller) - having the heating on... More

We were running late so I phoned ahead and spoke to the woman at reception and advised her of the time we expected to arrive ... no problems !. We arrived sometime after 6pm and met the lady from the front desk who said she had already put the heater on in our room to warm it up for us... More

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...
