Recent change of ownership has improved the overall experience. Just off the main road North South and very close to shops etc. Across the road from the Bowling Cub with good meals and friendly staff. Visitor information centre just around the corner. Room had A/c, microwave oven, toaster and tea coffee making and park outside your room on a flat... More

Highly recommend the Sandstock. Great location for walking around town, close to pubs and restaurants. Comfy warm room in what could have been a very chilly sleepover for us. Very polite customer service and will be back!

I needed a motel for the night en route to Sydney and found the Sandstock. The host was lovely and very efficient, and the room was very clean, comfortable and quiet. It is a short walk to the CBD and the Bowling Club across the road was a great place for dinner. Highly recommended.

My husband & I stayed for one night recently & could not recommended Sandstock Motel more highly. Right from when we arrived to check in we were impressed.

We stayed in February and had the most enjoyable stay, location couldn't be faulted literally in the heart of town so close to everything. The rooms are clean and comfortable and managers Glenn and Annette couldn't be more accommodating. We really couldn't find fault and will most definitely be back.

All you really need for an overnight stay is a quiet, dark room, comfortable bed and nice sheets. The friendly owners at the Sandstock Hotel provide this. A very good night's sleep off the highway and walking distance to a club or hotel for dinner. There is amicrowave in the room but no crockery. However, this was easily rectified by... More

7 ladies on a bowling holiday stayed at this Motor Inn for 3 nights. The owners went out of their way to make our stay very enjoyable. The rooms were very comfortable and quite and being the start of winter very warm and cosy. Laundry was done and rooms tidied every day (not usual these days). The Sandstock is located... More

Looking for an overnight stay close to the CBD of Armidale, NSW. The Sandstock Motor Inn is located just on the fringe of the CBD and close to the Wicklow Hotel. The Motor Inn was very good. It has been there for some time and I have used it a few times for both myself and guests visiting Armidale. The... More
